I passed GCCC yesterday. This was a requirement for the MSISE program. The class was more interesting than I thought it would be. I think the class would be most useful for an auditor, consultant or a director that is trying to improve the security posture of an organization. There are a few labs in the course but they're not really technical in nature. The course material is only five very thin books. A lot of the text is repeated over and over for every control. It's pretty obvious that there wasn't enough material to fill five books so they tried their best to make it look like there's more than there is. Like others have said the test is much easier than other GIAC tests. I read the books twice over a two weeks period and scored a 93 on the test. Next up is SEC599 in DC starting tomorrow.
