Back in April, I traveled to Orlando and took SANS 503 from the amazing Mike Poor. I then spent the next few months reviewing the course material, listening to Mike Poor MP3s, and taking practice exams. On September 5th, I took the real exam and passed with a 95! (I almost broke my arm patting myself on the back.) This certifies me at the GCIA Silver level. I'm now working on my research paper for GCIA Gold.
