      Hi fellow EHackers! Im Alwin – newbie here. I just wanted to announce that I passed the GCIH exam yesterday wooohooo!

      It was a tough exam and to mentioned it was my longest IT exam taken. I am glad that my review have a good result! I took the class of SANS 504 online last Nov 2009, Instructed by the legendary Ed Skoudis, John Strand and Bryce Galbraith- Thanks to them. I was on a busy schedule last year that’s why I just took it before it expires next month May 2010.

      Hello Alwin,

      Great work on passing the GCIH!
      It’s amazing how that exam deadline sneaks up so fast 🙂

      It’s a fantastic course and the skills from it really do help with situations in the real world. They’ve saved my backside a number of times!

      Have you got plans to take any more courses or exams this year or are you going to take a well deserved rest?

      Congrats on the GCIH!  I only know of Ed and John.  They are definately great instructors.  VERY knowledgable. 
      I just recerted in GCIH and even though I already qualify, I am listening to the MP3’s of Ed.  You never know when you may pick up something new to use in the future!

      Congrats!  Good luck with your studies moving forward.  I have the ECSA/LPT training materials, but haven’t had full time to explore them.  (I’ve been busy with projects, family and study for other things.)  Hope you have continued success.

      hey guys thank you! i wouldnt expect to much appreciation to my hard work! whew hard work was worth it really if you got what you deserved!

      @ dynamik –
      recommendation for GCIH: Self Study

      1. Read the SAS 504 books on a gradual basis, try to do the exercises- it will be a good practice and experience.
      2. use the MP3 if you have time to listen, such as on your way to work, in a bus, cab, etc… this is what i did and its good if you try to visualized what is Ed’s explaining about the course even just for listening 🙂
      3. When taking the exam use the books- label using the sticky notes or a complete table of contents in front of the book- which I did both 🙂 this will be make faster when looking for some terms on the questions.

      I hope this helps! Enjoy the rest of the day guys! Thanks!

      hey ziggy what was your real name? thanks mate!

      @ hayabusa- nice to have that ECSA dude! LPT is the reason why im going to ECSA but i think still requires CEH?

      @ MicroJay – thank you dude! yeah Ed is an awesome geek and John Strand – they are so cool when delivering this SANS Course, they make the class very alive!

      I have taken ECSA exam.It is a real easy exam. No you don’t require to have CEH inorder to take ECSA and good luck with the exam it should be easy exam for your compared to GCIH. 

      PS: In order for you to have LPT License you need to have CEH, ECSA as well you should have attented LPT training and some cash.

      I’ve had the pleasure of taking instruction from Bryce, Ed, and John. They are all top notch,I’m sure their instruction helped you out.

      I just re-certified on GCIH a couple of months ago. so having taken it twice, I know how challenging it can be. Congratulations!
