Didn't see a lot of posts on this one. Really liked this class. I have very little Unix/Linux background so I really learned some good fundamentals on things like SSH, sudo config files, and forensics. If you are a Unix/Linux admin I'd recommend you check this out. Very standard SANS class from an index perspective. 

Practice Test 1-82%
Practice Test 2-80%
Actual Test-88%

    Congrats on the pass! I had a former colleague who had this certification as well, I'm simply not sure how it helped him as he was already a Linux/Unix guy through and through.

    Congrats on the pass great job! I am supposed to take the exam soon. Do you have any tips or anything that I should know? I have a good amount of Linux experience but like you said there really is not a lot of resources out there about GCUX. Anything would be great!

    The practice tests were similar in style and difficulty. It was pretty standard to be honest.
