Man I am happy - is putting together a GSEC course

SANS GIAC is one of those organizations that is viewed as a kind of premier provider of services.  In this cases training and certification of information security personnel.  The have a number of training courses and associated certifications and their certs are viewed very highly.

Here is the problem - they are majorly expensive.  Training is somewhere around $5600 for a 4 or 5 day course and the exams for the cert are about $700 each.  Self study is almost impossible because there aren't any materials available unless you can find someone selling theirs on ebay even then course books can go for $800.

These guys have a stranglehold and they wring every possible dime out of it.  So imagine my joy when I signed onto and found they are putting together a GSEC course.  (GSEC is one of GIAC's entry level certs that meet the DoD 8570 requirements for Level II IAT).  I have some materials from work and other sources, so with this course I am hoping to be able to put together a decent self study program and knock out this exam.
