Passed GCWN Today
I haven't posted to this site in years, but thanks to the other posters for all of the resources as I do browse it frequently around certification time. After recently completing the SEC505 course, I passed the GCWN exam today with an 89% today. From a windows security perspective, the SEC505 course was probably the most practical IT Training course I have completed to date. I would highly recommend it if you are serious about securing windows environments. As others have stated, if you read the books, make a good index, and use the practice exams as an additional study tool, the real exam is not too difficult. This was my first SANS exam and I did like the scoring checkpoints so that you can gauge how well you are doing. Although the one drawback is that I found myself not caring as much about the last few questions as my score was already enough to pass. Thanks again for the info.
