I’m a few days late in posting this but last Monday I passed my GCIH exam with a 94. SANS advisory board here I come!!!
I watched the course in the On Demand format taught by Ed Skoudis and attended the live training taught by John Strand. It was very time consuming but well worth it to get the material from two world class instructors with different points of view.
The key to my high score was taking some great advice from a SANS teaching assistant & mentor named Neal Bridges who encouraged me to make a detailed (mine ended up around 30 pages) index and was kind enough to show me his GSEC index so I had an idea on how to format mine. I’ll write up a blog post soon where I’ll discuss my index and show a few samples.
