GCIH Passed

nelson8403nelson8403 Member Posts: 220 ■■■□□□□□□□
I just passed my GCIH, I took the course in Chicago last month with Jon Ham. Course was pretty good, a lot was a refresher, I put together my index about a month ago and unfortunate didn't have much time to look over it until today. I got finished in about an hour and a half and scored an 87% (just missed the 90%) and I felt it was pretty straight forward, not much was missing from the books/**** sheets

What I brought

Index (3 pages long, about 95 entries)
504 Books
Windows and Linux Incident Response **** Sheets
TCP/IP Packet information
Bachelor of Science, IT Security
Master of Science, Information Security and Assurance

CCIE Security Progress: Written Pass (06/2016), 1st Lab Attempt (11/2016)

    Congrats!
    The 504 books are part of the course? Is there a way to acquire them without a course participation?

    Refresher from your previous certs or degrees or work experience? Where did you learn/practice the course material? or do you do Incident Response as part of your job? :)
    Certs: GSTRT, GPEN, GCFA, CISM, CRISC, RHCE

    Refresher from work experience / previous certs definitely. I also took the 504 class so that was a big help, most of the terms and tools were not new however some were new to me.

    I do Incident Response as part of my job, I work in Security Operations so I do a little of everything!

    Matai - the ones on the sans website https://www.sans.org/security-resources/tcpip.pdf http://pen-testing.sans.org/retrieve/windows-****-sheet.pdf http://pen-testing.sans.org/retrieve/linux-****-sheet.pdf

    Yes I used the 504 books from the course, I got them through the course, however I know of people who sell them (check ebay) or you can also use the thread here on alternate books, there is no proprietary information in the books it's just a collection of data from many books.


    Future plans would be to try and do the pen testing graduate certificate I think.. I don't want to do the Masters (too expensive and I already have one) so I'd like to try to get their grad certificate which would be 560, 660 and 542
    Bachelor of Science, IT Security

    Were the Windows and Linux Incident Response **** Sheets provided in the course, or is that something you made or found elsewhere? Where they useful?
