I am considering studying for the SANS GSEC exam from a study book however Amazon has a book called "The GSEC Prep Guide: Mastering SANS GIAC Security Essentials" which was published in 2003 and the other book was published in 2002. I am going to assume that both books are out of date however I do not know this for sure.
Does anybody have any idea if these books cover what is required by the exam ? Surely the exam would of been updated by SANS making the study books well out of date.. Is a more upto study book available ? If anybody recently passed their exam from a study book, I'd love to know which books you worked from.
Which study book is better ?

Also is anybody has any general guidance, thoughts, criticisms, on the SANS GSEC, i'd like to know.
