Attempting GIAC GCFE exam (FOR408)

Hi all,
I'm new to the forum. I attended the SANS conference for the FOR408 Forensic Examiner course with Chad Tilbury in San Deigo.
Has anybody took the GCFE exam? I like to know your experience, is the content much different from the practice exam? What was your study method?

I'm planning to sit in for the exam in 2 weeks. Though I passed the practice exam both within 80-85%, I still don't feel comfortable for the actual exam. I get the feeling the actual will be much different from the practice. I drafted a index for my books and know where to find everything relevant to the topics. I know the bulk of the materials, it is the critical thinking that might scare me. If you have any insight, I would love to hear it.

Thanks in advance.

    All the GIAC practice exams I've taken have been very similar in experience to the real exam. You'll probably do fine. Relax for a bit, then review the books for one final reinforcement pass and you might be surprised how well you'll do.
    Hopefully-useful stuff I've written:
