OSCP Style Machines Question.

Hey Guys,

I wanted to know if just solving a bunch of VMs (50 VMs) is good enough to be able to solve the OSCP machines?

What I mean is, there are a whole list of HTB and VulnHub VMs recommended for OSCP style machines. Are those exploits repeated in the OSCP exam? Are the exploits common ones with a twist? Or will there be a curve call thrown (I am guess yes).

So If I can learn, solve and study 50+ OSCP style machines, is it good enough to attempt and pass the exam?

I am decent at python scripting and Bash. I can do PSH but need to work on that.

Would love to hear your views. :)

Kind Regards,


  • Honestly, if your experience is coming purely just from HTB machines, then yeah! but you can probably do the OSCP with less if you have some other experience on another platform etc.
