Passed GCIH

Just thought I'd post up that I passed the GCIH with a 97% the other day. I was worried because I heard it was harder than the GSEC... It's cake if you go through the material. I went in with a handwritten index which helped for a few questions, but I felt the real value was actually in creating the index because it reinforces/renews the concepts on the exam. I also thought the practice exams were almost identical to the real deal; prior to the real exam, I went through both practice exams without notes and scored an 84% the first time and a 94% the second time. Hopefully this provides a data point for others. Good luck!

    I feel this is exactly what an index is about in the context of GIAC exams. Great score!
