SANS GCFA certified!

I sat for and passed the GCFA exam today! All the studying was worth it, as I passed with an 88%. I was shooting for over a 90, but I'll take it. The exam was definitely challenging, but if you study the books (and know where the information is in the books) you'll do ok. That, and it helps if you are passionate and really like the material.

I'll probably take the rest of this year off from studying, but it will be back to the grind after New Years. It looks like the next cert to go after will be the CISSP.


  1. Congratulations!!! I'm taking my GCFA test Wednesday. The practice tests went well, so hoping the real one goes well too.

  2. Good luck KP. If you did well on the practice tests administered by SANS, you should do well on the live exam. They are similar in nature (though obviously not the same.)

  3. I actually enjoyed reading through this posting.Many thanks.
