I'm going to need these for a Master's program at WGU:

C|EH (EC-Council Ethical Hacking and Countermeasures - 312-50)
CHFI (EC-Council Computer Hacking Forensic Investigator - 312-49)
EDRP (EC-Council Disaster Recovery Professional - 312-76)
G2700 (GIAC Certified ISO-27000 Specialist)

1. Please vote which one is the most difficult.
2. Please rank in order of difficulty, in your reply post.

This information would be helpful to me, in that I would want to tackle the most difficult ones first.

Thanks for your assistance!

    I'm just finishing up my MS at WGU, and I have all those certs. This is a hard question to answer, but I'll try.

    The 3 EC-Council tests kind of build off each other, so they got easier for me as I went along. C|EH was probably the hardest of the three for me because it introduced a lot of new information.

    If you take CHFI after C|EH, I think it's fairly easy to do. Of course introduces forensic techniques, but having C|EH as a base made it easier. I think part of what made it easier as well was that I knew what the Ec-council tests were like when I took it.

    I believe that EDRP is being updated, and I hope so, because the new exam (or at least the books) are much better, and more current. The test I took was out of date on a lot of the software they cover. They may have the new test by the time you take it.

    Finally, I had heard the G2700 was going to be difficult, but it's wasn't as a hard as I was expecting it to be. It wasn't easy though.

    As far as difficulty, I think C|EH and G2700 were both pretty difficult; both CHFI, and EDRP were easier for me.

    Of course this all depends on your background a well. But that's my opinion on it.

    Last thing, the order I took them in was: C|EH, CHFI, EDRP, G2700. Personally I think that's a good order to take them in, but G2700 could really be anywhere in there.

    EDIT: Just saw that you have your CISSP. I'm guessing that none of these are going to be too difficult for you.

    That was my plan for after my BS, although I kind of expect to at least have some of them done before the BS is finished.
    Decide what to be and go be it.

    Thanks for your help Foxer. I haven't attend Education without Borders yet (or is it Boundaries?!) but I pretty much have a plan already set up for myself. I'm just going to take them in their order offered, (the classes seem to line up with this pretty well).

    I'll just sign up for the base hours. As I already test out via the CCNA for two classes, that puts me a little bit ahead, but I'm not sure about tackling more than two of these certs in a six-month period, as I want the information to "marinate".

    I'll just schedule for the base hours, then tweak it from there once I finish the courses. (Don't want to add more than one or two at a time, you know?)

    I have a call with my counselor scheduled for tomorrow afternoon, playing it from there.
