    I have been trying to learn about ethical hacking and security from last 4-5 months. So far I am unable make any remarkable mark due to lake of practical training. I do not have computer background. I know a bit of html and no other programming language.
    I have also thought of preparing for security + exam and had gone through some of the books. But again no experience in this field I am unable to make any progress. I forgot to mention, I got a job in data security field where my job is to classification of data. Its moreover clerk kind of job where only documentations are required J.
    I downloaded backtrack5, ubuntu and tor etc many other things in my laptop. Read many tutorials on net. I have many questions which you might find naïve,
    - Which programming language should I start?
    Any programming language will take minimum 6 months for average knowledge.
    - How much we can do with or without backtrack in hacking?
    - Which book or tutorial should I follow?
    - Penetration testing, ethical hacking, forensic experts etc. what is the difference between them and which one should I start learning with.
    - Free hacking lab
    - Is there any free course or reasonable online courses available where I can be a part of newbie’s and learn together
    I will be grateful for ur inputs and help.

    HELLO Meetjsh
    Read this and post back if you any questions.
    There are a few books and institutes that claim to teach hacking but all great hackers are self made.
    For example when a hacker buys a new phone he does not only check its capabilities but also he also makes optimizations.It will take time.Have patience after you start.
