would keep you cold hard cash and just use the books from the class. The test itself is not that challenging, unless

Hello list. I am looking to study for the GSEC certificate and besides going to the SANS course I can't seem to find 
any worth while books. The books I did find were out of date and not recommended.

Does anyone have any recommendations?
