    Post GCIA Index (c)2016 Books

    I am looking for a GCIA alternative index to have on hand for my test. I like to go into these with multiple indexes. I attended the SANS course back in November of 2016. If you have one from 2016 and would be open to sharing, please email it to stvlange (at) gmail (dot) com. I appreciate the assistance and thanks in advance.

    Default Updated

    I added about another 10-12 pages if you downloaded this already you may want to re-download. Some additional formatting fixes, etc..

    You are awesome! Thank you very much for sharing your index. I'm studying and might be running short on time so I might use this

    Congrats on the pass!


    How did you find the exam?? What experience did you have before taking the exam?

    And more importantly, what's next?
    Goal: GCFA (DONE), GPEN

    Thanks guys. Test was pretty challenging. I'm not kidding when I say that there was a lot of packet inspection/analysis questions. Most of them were not too difficult if you read the books in depth.

    There is a lot of material and some small detail questions. I found my index to work well which I was pleased. I took a practice exam on Monday and ran out of time with 10 questions left and scores a 66% so you really need to keep moving. I ended tonight with 4 minutes to spare.

    I've done GSEC and GCIH before this. This was by far the most challenging. I wish I had spent more time on bit masking and computing offset values. I am not a math person so that was more difficult for me than others I imagine.

    Whats next? I am pretty sure I'll be at SANS 2017 in Orlando for the two day cloud class and then hopefully the Linux security class. I'd be curious what people have thought of it. Anyway, take care and good luck.

    Lots of blank space on the index, but what ever works for you.

    This what my 504 Index looked like, I figured if I could get the definition without looking it up, I could save precious seconds during the exam.

    I also broke up the programs into function type, name, location and what they do in another index.
    Still searching for the corner in a round room.

    Lots of options on indexes for sure. I find more minimal ones that replicate closer to what a real index work better for me. Yours looks nice btw.

    Hey I tried the links to the dropbox but they are dead. Any chance on posting new link? I am working on my index now and would like something to compare to. Thanks
