Not a chance, guy. Despite the dropping of the practical (which I'm not a fan of), the technical tests (plural) for the GSEC were still *very* difficult compared to CISSP, Security+, MCSE, or any other test I have taken. The stuff was quite technical and those without a strong background will not do well on the tests as they exist today.

I am not sure how they match up on content or level of knowledge required.

It's fairly stout stuff. Think CISSP, but technical.

I think SANS will keep a decent degree of respect in the certification arena, just not as much as when they had the practical requirement. That's my hope anyway...
