I took training on the same subject, and the instructor suggested "Hacking exposed" book.

Also, when you register for certification you will receive a kit.

Just helping out with omarfarid's post,

http://www.amazon.com/Hacking-Exposed-Sixth-Edition-ebook/dp/B001NLKUMS/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1370582360&sr=8-1&keywords=Ethical+Hacking+%22Hacking+exposed%22


I recommend reading the reviews at Amazon for all three of these books that we've linked to.   Amazon's reviews are a great resource for information about the particular products they sell.   There are quite a few helpful reviews on these books.
