I've talked to a lot of people who have taken the SANS-610 course and I have looked through the material. I was curious if anyone has taken the exam (the more recently the better, I figure they have added content for the fifth day).
I have been doing malware RE for a few years now and I think I'm pretty knowledgeable. I've got more than a passing familiarity with IDA Pro and Olly which seem to be used in the course. I did some web programming a couple of years ago so I know some of the nasty things that can be done there.
I guess my question to anyone who's taken the exam is how difficult was it and what was your experience going in? I'd be challenging the cert, out of pocket, so I don't want to blow it. OTOH, I've spent way
too much time studying for some other exams... When I read through the very small objective list here but honestly it seems pretty non-descriptive when compared to some of the other SANS certs.http://www.giac.org/certbulletin/grem.php
Thanks in advance for any insight you can provide.
