Re: Question about GCIH

Hello Melissa,
I took my GSEC cert with on-demand learning, and I can say it was very useful. I liked it very much, because, even having the printed books and mp3 classes also, you have more mp3 files with lessons from different instructors and another text explanation for each topic. It is divided in short "chapters" so you can study less than 30min if someday or sometime you have not more time, and finish a logical section. Don't leaving it at the middle. You have questions at the end of each topic, which are similar to the ones you will have at the exam.
Summarizing the best things for me were:
-More mp3 lessons
-Another source of text information (having things explaind twice, books and online)
-Short topics. Which permits you study small fractions of time if needed.
-More exam like questions

I also should say that is the only way I got an GIAC certification, and probably will be the way I will continue using.

Hello all-

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?
