SANS 504 book index

Hello all... long time reader, first time poster.

I am finishing up SANS 504 On Demand and am prepairing to take the GCIH. I feel confident I feel that I have done a pretty good job at indexing my books, but I get nervous about not doing well on the exam.

Does anyone have an electronic or scanned copy of their index they can share? This would help my anxiety if nothing else

    I think an index is very specific to an individual's understanding (or lack of) for the different areas of the exam. For this reason, I don't share out my index since it's tailored very specifically for my strengths and weaknesses. I think as long as you grasp the core material pretty well, you should do fine on the exam. I finished the GCIH exam in 2 hours, 15 minutes back when it was the 150 question format, and that was with referencing my index and course books to make sure of some of my answers. The practice exams should give you a good idea where you stand.

    And the purpose of compiling your own notes and index is to learn the material better. Just looking up answers to questions you don't understand won't help you pass the exam. The point of the certifications is to learn the material they represent and not to just pass the exam.

    Yeah my notes only make sense to me. To anybody else it looks like some maniac wrote them.

    Which is also the major reason why I never posted my CISSP, SSCP, and EnCE study notes.

    Thanks guys... I feel pretty confident in my index. I just wanted to see some other examples and hoping to find an all encompassing index to augment my own.
