I'm GWAPT, baby!

Tested yesterday.  It was harder than I thought, even with my books all tagged up.  You had your easy questions, then you had those that you could reference in the book, then there were numerous "logic" questions where you don't find a direct answer in the books.  Have to put all that knowledge together and actually come up with an answer.  The test engine screwed me out of three questions though.  Apparently, even if you have no answer selected, and you're mouse isn't on the "submit" button... if, say, one of your books accidentally hits the enter key on the keyboard... whoosh, you're on to your next question.  Beware of that!

Anyway, definitely one of the more difficult exams I've taken, but I give them thumbs up on making a test that isn't just about memorizing tool and googleable questions.  Why isn't "--help" ever a valid answer on those tool questions? :)

Congrats man!  Hmm which one are you :-p  I wish other certification bodies allowed you to look up the individual to ensure they really have it.

Congrats!  How would you recommend someone study if they haven't taken the SANS class?  Would someone pass if they were familiar with The Web Application Hacker's Handbook 2nd edition, The Tangled Web and open source software?

Congrats, Rance!

If I had the change to afford it, that'd be my next cert.  Unfortunately,right now, I just don't.  So,working with the Mile2 stuff we just won.

But congrats on the pass!

Re: I'm GWAPT, baby!

Was your exam the 2-hour / 75-question version, or the older 4-hour / 150 question format?  I'm thinking of taking this course at the end of the year and I'm debating whether to do the exam or not.

How was the GWAPT exam compared to other GIAC ones?

Re: I'm GWAPT, baby!

Way to go, I'm hoping to be a SANS volunteer for GWAPT here in Phoenix in February.  Hopefully I'll get it and then I can join your ranks  :)
