I believe in order to receive the practice test you must have a SANS/GIAC portal account. I do not know if you have to be registered to challenge the GCIH exam or not.
Let me know if you are interested. I believe the practice test is valid until December. I do not know if the practice exam will go away after I take and pass the test.
Just PM me your SANS portal ID and I'll provide the number to my Swiss bank account for payment (just kidding).
(btw, yes, I'm alive. I've been super busy with new projects at work, going back to school, and studying for GCIH. I'm a glutton so I'm also going for GCIA because my work is paying for the training)
