Trust SANS, they will not steer you wrong. I took the classroom version of
this course with Ed Skoudis. Frankly I learned much more from him than I
ever could have from just the SANS course books alone... he puts everything
together and in perspective. In fact, I am not sure I would have been able
to pass the certification without gaining the insight from his personal
examples, stories and class challenges.
So, I would also strongly recommend it! ;-)

Subject: Question about GCIH
I am signed up to take SANS 504 and along with that I can take the
exam to become certified as a GCIH (GIAC certified Incident Handler
is I believe what it stands for). Anyways I called up SANS to ask them
a question and they *strongly* recommended I do the on-demand learning
thing as well to better help me prepare for the exam.
I was wondering if anyone had any opinions on their suggestion. Is it
just a sales pitch or is the on-demand learning a viable, useful tool
to helping one pass the exam?
