I just passed the R71 CCSA exam this morning! I did'nt blow it out of the water(79%), but atleast I passed. The exam was definitely challenging but not as tough I as thought it would be. This as my first attempt and my first checkpoint exam, so I can't measure the quality of the questions compared to others. The questions seemed to be relevant and worded properly. I used the free exam materials from the CPUG(Posts) and Checkpoint sites(Practice Exam and Downloadable PDF's) to prepare. Thanks to all who answered my questions and posted useful information in this forum. Next up......CCSE

Hi,

Im curious which PDF's you used from Checkpoints site. I downloaded the R71 document pack and its pretty daunting. Ive been trying to use the CCSA R71 Study Guide from Checkpoints site and map certain PDF's to certain topics.

Was there a specific subset of the 26 PDF's included in the doc pack that you mainly used?

Thanks

CP_R71_Firewall_AdminGuide,
CP_R71_SecurityManagement_AdminGuide,
CP_R71_VPN_AdminGuide
CP_R71_CLI_ReferenceGuide

I though the questions were fair. It would be nice if CP did some sims ala Cisco, I think it shows more real world technical skills and not just memorizing PDF's.

Yes, my bad. I thought you are referring to a lab exam, which never existed for CCSA/E. I now understand you are talking about trial exam which is part of preparation materials.

Checkpoint says itself that the questions for CCSA R71 Practice Exam taken from the official exam question pool. The question is how much of them you seen in the real exam. I'm just curious. One friend of mine says that he has got around 15-20 questions he saw at CCSA R71 Practice Exam.
Thats all
