I've taken the assessment exam for the GSEC and scored high on that (mid to high 40's out of 50, don't remember the exact number). All but one of the wrong answers were either brain-farts or one of those "Oh, that's what they were getting at" type questions. I feel pretty prepared for that test from just past experience, but I'm trying to find some kind of course work out there to look through to see what all might be on the exam beyond what I saw on the assessment test as well as how they phrase certain topics. Anyone know of anything out there for that test that isn't outdated or of any reall expense (< $200)? Is that cert of sufficient value to accomplish what I am looking for? I'm not really interested in playing the ISC2's games with the CISSP or I'd sit for that.
I have no issues seeing the value in the OSCP and I like the fact that it won't cost be $3-4k to get through it.
I'm looking to move to a dedicated security role in either an enterprise defense type position or with a managed security services firm/pentest team. I need to have both avenues open as employment options are somewhat limited in my area.
