Passed GCIH!

Just Passed the GCIH yesterday. I am a senior analyst but don't work hands on with any types of tools and don't do any pen testing whatsoever, so the course was a lot more difficult for me than others. I work more in audit/risk management. I do deal a lot with incidents so that was my biggest draw for this cert.

I scored a 64 and 70 on the practice tests, both fails. Needless to say, I was very nervous going in. I scored a 75 on the test, so barely a pass, but a pass is a pass! :cool:

Took the OnDemand course with John Strand. Thought he was a great instructor. I met him at a IANS conference once so was looking forward to taking his course. Read the books once (probably a mistake, should have read it twice). Was able to do the OnDemand slides once and did the audio MP3s probably twice altogether on my commutes to work. Index I thought was key and I even put tabs in the books.

Was surprised there wasn't any (maybe 1) Metasploit questions on the test. Practice tests were very comparable to the real exam. Overall, thought it was a great course in general.

Next up will be CISA as I don't believe my company will be paying for anymore GIAC certs :(

If you have any questions, let me know. Still on a bit of a high from the pass yesterday!!
