UPDATE: SANS Institute is in the process of updating the curriculum for this course to align with the changes being announced by ISC2 for test candidates beginning April 15, 2015. You want the newest course content that will get you through the new test. Since we need to move the Lansing Mentor session for this test prep course, the best opening to do it looks like September, starting on Wednesday the 9th. Hopefully, this means a few more people who were considering the course will be able to register.
If you aren't familiar with the SANS Mentor course format, rather than five days in a lecture, you attend shorter presentations one evening per week. Bring your questions to class and be prepared for discussion with your peers. In between sessions you have time to study and digest the materials. You still get all the curriculum you would get at a large SANS conference costing thousands of dollars more, but without the need to take time away from the office.
