I have taken the GCED course in San Diego in May 2016. And I have been struggling to prepare for this test. I have created an Index of all 6 books and took my first practice exam and got a 49% . I thought my index failed me and had a hard time finding the tools and attack types from within my Index and really don't know how to improve it as I spent over 8 hours creating the index.
Is there any way I could borrow your index and I could e-mail you mine as well to see if i'm doing it right etc. This has been giving me anxiety for months now and I'm not sure what else to do.

Your are seriously abusing the community that exists here for helping people learn and advance their careers. You have not put in the work necessary to build a proper index and pass the exam. You have posted this exact text repeatedly on ancient posts, in an apparent bid to game the system so that you can receive PM's that you hope people will send you. I would advise you to read the replies people have sent you with great tips for how to effectively study for a SAMS exam. I hope nobody sends you the index you seek, because your posts here do not show good faith.

These people are so rude. I can't stand them . I keep coming back to see if they change but it's the same since I joined in 2007.
Jokes aside, as I said in one of the other 27,459 threads were you begged for help: relax. Some of us have been through the GIAC routine more than once. GCED is one of the certs I understand better as I took the test twice because I worked with GIAC to help set the current passing standard. We want to help but as ramrunner800 said, you have obviously not done your part. Exhibit A: you never answered what I asked here: http://www.techexams.net/forums/sans-institute-giac-certifications/114007-looking-index-building-tips.html#post1042254. For all I know you could be the guy I see at every single SANS class I've attended: back of the room, checking text, checking email, not following labs, leaving early, etc.
In my eyes you are desperate and have no concrete/serious plan to attack this cert. You obviously have a serious knowledge gap that I doubt you can cover peeking at someone's index. If by any chance my assessment is wrong, you are doing an awful job at communicating your intentions.

You are completely rude! You have NO idea what work I have done and I find your reply to be shameful! I don't feel asking for help is abusing anything. I have spent hours on my current index but I realized that after my first practice exam (49%...ran out of time also) that I needed help how to build the proper index. I posted this on multiple posts because I thought it may reach more people that could potentially help me. I don't see how you can say ANY that my posts are not in good faith as I am a cyber security professional and see no problem with asking for help. I don't see what the problem is with sharing indexes! As for looking at other people's responses? There wasn't anything useful other than re-reading the material or nothing of pertaining value that I noticed...I figured that someone could help pay it forward and help me as I am struggling to get a proficient index. I really don't appreciate your answer and especially without the facts!
