Hi all,

I'll be sitting for the GCIH next weekend and wanted to see if anybody had any last-minute recommendations on reference materials that you found useful during the exam. I've currently got all of the books indexed and have printouts of the related SANS **** Sheets, but want to make sure I'm not missing anything useful!

Thanks!

    Last minute tips for GCIH, I would say focus on DoS and SQL injection concepts. Also focus on the main incident handling steps (Preparation, Identification, etc.)

    How did you do on the practice exams?
    Alphabet soup from (ISC)2, ISACA, GIAC, EC-Council, Microsoft, ITIL, Cisco, Scrum, CompTIA, AWS

    All GIAC exams are made based on the official SANS course books, so basically anything you were given will cover the exam content. As long as you made a good index and understand the material you should be good to go.

    I haven't taken GCIH, but do the cheatsheets for it include tools like NMAP? I could see those being helpful as a safety net.

    I scored high seventies for the first go and low eighties for the second go... not the greatest, but if it's anything like my GSEC, I ended up with roughly the same practice scores and passed the exam with a few points higher than my highest practice exam.

    Thanks, everyone!

    Those scores are very similar to my practice exam scores and I scored an 86 on the actual exam. I think you will be fine.
