The SANS tests are not that bad. But yes, you will need some experience and carefully read the material they give you in order to pass them. You can take the training without any experiences, but you might not pass the test. As all of the questions are not directly from the books. Before I take the one of their tests, I reread all the booklets and listen to all the audio files. and still I get few wrong.

doesn't require experience. But I'm quite sure it would be preferred if
you have it. If not for else then for your own sake.

I'm facing the same problem as you do. I'v been looking into difference
sans certifications because they don't require experience but they do
give some hands on lab work at the training. Not to mention the
possibility to take a gold level cert. by writing an assignment. But I
don't have any security certs or experience in the area.

I disagree with your statement about SANS GIAC certs not requiring
experience.  I have a lot of grey hair and passed the CISSP on first try
in
half the allotted six hours, but don't believe I could have passed the
GIACs
without the training.  I refer to CISSP as a river a mile wide but six
inches deep.  The GIACs are 100 yards wide and 50 feet deep.
