Hi all.

Does SANS provide an e-book for studying for the various areas of the GCIH certification, or is it just strictly a paper book?  Where can we see the link?

    I have taken multiple SANS courses and have never received ebooks. Whether in-person or on-demand I have always received the following:

    - set of books (hard copies)
    - usb
    - pocket reference guides (pamplets)
    - mp3's
    Alphabet soup from (ISC)2, ISACA, GIAC, EC-Council, Microsoft, ITIL, Cisco, Scrum, and more.

    2021 goals: AZ-303, AZ-304, maybe TOGAF and more ISACA

    @egrizzly You'll get electronic books. During the pandemic, SANS has taken measures to ensure an even more spectacular training environment. 

    You'll get watermarked electronic books that are available for download in your SANS portal. Every time you open the book, you must enter in a password.

    The transition to pdf files seems to have been well received by people taking SANS courses this year.  The digital files are locked down pretty well and if you are the type of person that likes to make electronic notes, comments, or highlighting, you will have to use a separate document for that.  At least that is from my experience when I took a course over the summer.
