GIAC Cert Attempt: need some confidence...

I found that the real tests have been harder than the practice ones
but not by too much so I'd say if you are feeling confident on the
practice ones you'd be ok on the real one.
I haven't found time to be an issue on either of the two tests I've
done, I've finished all of them in under half the time so just relax,
read things, check things and don't panic.

For those of you that have passed the GIAC cert(s), I need some input
(and hopefully some confidence). ?I am scheduled to take the GIAC/GSEC
in a week and a half and have been studying quite a bit. ?I just took
the SEC401 assessment test and passed pretty easily, downloaded the
TCP/IP assessment pdf (from SANS) and passed pretty easily, and
finally, took my first practice exam. ?I passed the practice exam
pretty easily (87%), spending very little time looking things up and
plenty of time left (over two and half hours left).
So, my question is, are these tests pretty representative of the cert
test I'll be taking? ?Or is the cert exam much harder and I need to
study harder and longer. ?I don't plan on slacking between now and
then. ?I'll still study, and concentrate on the areas that I didn't do
Thanks for your help!
