Finished the exam in 52 minutes! I didn't even touch my index once!

I was glad to have this over and wished I could have done it sooner.

Took the class at one of their conferences. Used their books and on demand. Scored a 75% and 83% on the practice exams. Ended up with a 83% on the actual exam.

Next on my to do list is ITIL, Mobility+, and probably GCED/GCIA

    Not me, I finished with maybe 5 minutes to spare. I thought it was a pretty a tough exam. Congratulations.

    Can I get a copy of your index? I'm too busy at work to do mine and would like to use yours to compare it to mine when I have time to work on mine when I'm not too busy at work but since I'm busy at work, can I get a copy of yours to compare to mine?

    (LOL, j/k. Congrats on the pass. That cert is on my radar once I finish my degree)

    Congrats on the pass! I hope to join you in a few weeks. So you didn't need the index at all? I have not created one and am skeptical of even bothering based on the course content so far. But it seems ragingly popular to do so for some reason.

    So I will say that I might be an anomaly. I would say make the index. Because even if I didn't use it, making one made me read the material. That way if you get frozen you aren't stuck.

    I will still make one for the next exam that I make. The biggest thing I would say is don't fret. I've done the CEH, eJPT, and now GCIH and I can say with confidence that the SANS exams with adequate preparation can be completed. That means reading the books. I also wouldn't say they are super difficult in comparison to other exams. However if you check my blog you can see how much material I read and watch.

    It depends on how familiar you are with the material. I suggest you do an initial index and take the practice exam to gauge yourself. The index will be handy if you are aiming for more than 90% score and invitation to join GIAC Advisory Board

    I think if you get a 100%, you get a invitation to the Playboy Mansion Advisory board, that's the one I always shoot for.
