I've completed my GCIH and GSEC through self study SANS training. I also just recently attended my first live
conference form SANS for CISSP prep. In all three of these courses the one thing I found invaluable was the MP3 files.
If I am not mistaken, OnDemand will give you those files, if not find out what option it is and get that.
For the GCIH I got the MP3 from an entire week long conference taught by Ed Skoudis...i just wish I could have attended
it in person thats how awesome the MP3's were...the GSEC one I got the conference from Marc Sachs, another awesome guy.
The CISSP one I'm going through now I got the MP3's with Eric Cole, love him as well.
So again, get the option for the MP3's so you can relisten/relive the entire conference on your ipod when exercising or
like me, driving to/from work. It's a good idea now that SANS exams are proctored, though still open book, just not

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?
