Hi Team;
I have attended one of the SANS GIAC course in 2011-2012. But couldnot appear in exam due to personal reasons, as per SANS website the material of course is quickly outdated. I am planning to appear in next 6 months.

Need advice if this is just marketing from SANS or do they really change course frequently.

I need similar feedback for a friend for GSEC as well... Do SANS update all courses frequently or only specific ones.

    Type in the advanced search block what is below:

    SANS material updated

    You will indeed find your answer.

    To add to that the short and long answer is yes it's updated. Do I think they updated every section, maybe/maybe not. It all depends on your definition of updated. Would I pay for the exam with material I used to study that was 5-6 years old..the answer is no.

    People in the history of SANS have studied and passed the exam without even using the material. So you do stand a chance of passing with the supplemental material such as books and/or real word experience.
