The GIAC’s GSLC Certification exam validates your proficiency with GIAC Security Leadership Certification. The skills measured by GSLC includes working with security management and administration. So much to learn in so little time? Of course you have to study hard, as there is no short cut to success, but if you prepare systematically, you can pass this exam easily. Here are 10 tips that will help you to pass the GSLC exam with flying colors:

  1. Set a deadline: Set a schedule for yourself before starting your preparations. Plan and decide how much time will you devote on your studies, practical and practice tests. Also plan when will you review your preparations and when will you take the exam beforehand. This will help you concentrate more and organize your time better. Although the preparation time depends on how fast you can study and what experience you have, but generally, it takes about 8-10 weeks to prepare for a particular exam.
  2. Review the exam objectives: Clearly understand what are the skills required and on what specific topics you should concentrate for a particular exam. Know what to expect in the exam and start your preparations accordingly.
  3. Read technical articles and study notes: Read plenty of good articles on the technologies covered and get as much knowledge as you can. Study notes are helpful to learn the technical terms, definitions and the key concepts required to understand the complex technology that the exams cover.
  4. Have practical experience: You should have practical experience on security awareness, security management, securing network, security threats and countermeasures, disaster recovery, etc.
  5. Take practice exams: Take practice exams and get the experience on the pattern and format of the actual certification exams.
  6. Schedule the exam for your peak time: Always schedule your exam for your peak time. Taking the exams in the morning is generally considered better, but it depends on what is the most suitable time for you. Likewise, it is advisable to schedule your exam in weekdays, so that there are less people to take the exam at the exam center.
  7. Sleep well in the night before exam: Have a good night’s sleep before the exam. Staying up late and studying the whole night before the exam will not help, as you will feel tired and sleepy while taking the exam.
  8. Reach the exam center before time: Always try to reach the exam center at least 15 minutes before the exam. Use the extra time for completing the formalities and getting familiar with the environment at the testing center. You can also review the important topics so that you remember them during the exam.
  9. Be relaxed during the exam: Be comfortable while taking the exam. Read all the answer options even if you feel that you know the correct answer. If you’re unsure about the answer, try to eliminate the obviously wrong answers first. You can also bookmark the questions on which you have doubt and answer them afterwards.
  10. Review the answers: Thoroughly review your answers before ending the exam. Answer the questions you have book marked by guessing the correct answer options and don’t leave any question unanswered.

Most importantly, keep faith in yourself and you will see that nothing is impossible. You can always find what works for you and what does not and plan your preparations accordingly. This may not be an exhaustive list of what to do and what not to do, but we do hope that these tips will pave your way towards your ultimate goal, i.e., to be certified as an GIAC Certified.

Based on the results of an IT Industry Business survey conducted recently by CompTIA, it is expected that six in ten IT firms are likely to significantly or moderately increase their Q3 and Q4 revenues, as compared to Q1 and Q2 revenues. IT companies are beginning to be more optimistic about the second half of 2010. The CompTIA survey panel expects the Business Confidence Index to increase 5.4 points over the next six months. In addition, the CompTIA IT Industry Business Confidence Index, anticipates that 37 percent of IT firms expect to increase hiring over the next six months.

This means more and more companies will want to add staff, will hire programmers, developers, support staff and help desk, sales staff, project managers, and network engineers. 47 percent of companies say they are fully staffed but will add new talent because they want to expand their business. Conversely, 53 percent of these firms indicate they are understaffed by between 5 percent and 20 percent.

All of this means that hiring managers will be looking for skilled talent, ready to help grow their businesses. Having the right experience, and skills, including a certification in the right area can help you be prepared for a possible increase in hiring this second half of 2010 and into early 2011.

Like anything else, getting a technical certification may be achieved by approaching it correctly or not. Here are the top certification mistakes one should avoid.

1. Doing a “hot” certification which is popular, rather than something you love doing. Many people getting into IT field want to pursue a certification based on its perceived popularity at the moment.

This is a bad strategy. For one thing, an area that’s hot right now might melt like a glacier in six months. These trends are impossible to predict. Another reason would be that you simply not enjoy performing a job your certification is in. People tend to do well when they enjoy what they are doing, and when people do well, they get recognized, regardless of whether the area is current trend or not. Find a certification that will help you enhance your current skills or develop new ones in areas that interest you.
Use a tool such as uCertify’s CertAdvisor to help you make the right certification choice.

2. Not getting enough experience first. Hiring managers have gotten more sophisticated about technical certifications over the years. When they see a certification, they wonder if a job candidate has the required experience. That’s because some credentialed job-seekers try and use the certification as a substitute for experience.

Remember: there is no substitute for experience. Start at a low level if you’re just getting into IT, such as working at a help desk or working for free helping out local charities; anything to get your hands dirty. Then your certification will have more weight, and your chances of getting that next job go up substantially. Certification proves to employers that you are ready and willing to go that extra level for the job.

3. Using only one study method

Books can be helpful certification prep tools. So can simulation labs. So can classroom-based training, and online training.
Don’t confine your preparation methods to just one of these types. Variety is not only the spice of life, but it can kick your certification prep to the next level.

4. Testing before you’re ready

It’s a good idea to not have a hard deadline for getting your certification. You want to be thoroughly prepared for your exams before testing. If you feel you need an extra week or month — or more — be patient and delay your exam. If you don’t have the concepts and hands-on knowledge down cold, it will hurt you on the test. Be patient.

5. Assuming certification will fast-track your career

Some people expect an immediate raise or promotion the moment the ink is dry on their credential. Certifications are one indication of your worthiness as an employee, but there are many others. They include experience, communication skills, ability to be a team player, etc. If you’re not getting ahead the way you think you should be, ask your manager for an honest evaluation of what areas you need to shore up. Certification alone is no guarantee of success.

6. Using a braindump to prepare
Braindumps are unethical to use; it’s no different than getting a test ahead of time in school and regurgitating answers. It’s cheating, plain and simple. In addition, if you don’t understand the material, you will be totally unprepared for your job duties, assuming you manage to get hired.
