Passed GIAC GPEN Exam today

Hey peeps,

My first post of this year. And what a busy lazy ass I've been since past few months.

So quick update is that I attended SANS 560 class in February 2011. And sat for the exam today March 14, 2011 here at a local kryterion center, that's actually exactly 3 weeks later.

Briefly hissing, I completed the test in around 2:30 hours out of 4 and scored a decent 93%.

Yeah, I passed. I am GIAC GPEN certified now. Yay!

I hope I can use this weekend to try put down my study plan in a new post.

Ping me if you've any questions etc.

Keep learning.!


  1. What materials did you use, and how many study hours it took you to set for the exam

  2. Hi Anonymous,

    I attended the SANS class & used the official study books. It took me 3 weeks to prepare & sit for the exam.

    All the best.

  3. i passes ceh and planning for gpen, where can i download the official study guide

  4. @babusubbu Official study material is available from SANS itself. You can opt to choose from Instructor led training, or self-study learning and purchase course material.

    All the best.
