Ethical hacking fundamentals do not change from one exam to the next. One can expect to see questions about Nmap, what commands were used to generate a specific output, and which tool would you use, regardless of the exam vendor. An individual is expected to know what pentesting framework would be used to meet a specific condition and what information should be delivered in an executive summary. You should know how to scope an assessment and identify what document is used for what purpose and the OWASP Top 10 and identify the hacking methodology used to exploit each one.
