Hey Rishi,

You should be able to find the course descriptions and goals on the
SANS or GIAC websites.  I can get a bit more specific offlist, if you
want, but I obviously can't give out practice questions or course

I would see if you can find other GIAC holders and ask them what they
recall and what their experience was like.  That'd be your best bet,

- Mike

Hey Mike,

Thanks for your quick response!

I browsed through the Self-Study from SANS and their material costs:

Assessing and Securing Wireless Networks :: SEC-617             $ 2,916
Firewalls, Perimeter Protection & VPNs :: SEC-502               $ 2,616
Hacker Techniques, Exploits & Incident Handling :: SEC-504      $ 2,616
Intro to Information Security :: SEC-309                        $ 2,616
Intrusion Detection In-Depth :: SEC-503                         $ 2,616
SANS Security Essentials :: SEC-401                             $ 2,616

It includes:
* Printed and bound course materials for selected course
* SANS printed course books & CD (CD not applicable to certain courses)
* Two GIAC Practice Tests for each exam required for certification (GIAC
Certification students only)
* Four-month online access to MP3 files of the course taught by the
world's best instructors

Hey Mike, is there any other means of material/books floating in the
wild (off the record) to get an idea of the topics' coverage and sample
Q/A before I bend to loosen some bucks outta my pocket?
