One or the other

I am in Northern Virginia about 15 minutes from Washington DC. So, as you are aware it's a big government area. I see that before July 29 you have the option to purchase an OnDemand course with a $800 discount. I was leaning more towards the GCED myself because of where it falls on the 8570 Chart as compared to the GSEC on the 8570 chart. I think the GCED would be more catered to my surroundings in terms of jobs. Even though the GSEC gets more (direct) hits on Job Search | one search. all jobs. Indeed.com. Having taking into consideration some people just list SANS instead of specific certifications on the job boards and the number maybe a little higher. Some of the other certs I would prefer to take in a classroom environment, so yes I have looked into other training offered by SANS.If you had to choose would you pick the GSEC or GCED (training) for an OnDemand purchase (considering my area)??

    Whats your experience like? I always look for certs that will help further by knowledge and make me grow as a professional IT practitioner. I never paid attention to GSEC because I considered it too basic for my experience.
