Hello,

last year I prepared and failed the CCSA R70 Exam. Now I want to prepare for the R71 CCSA Exam. What are the new topics of the R71 test I have to learn ?

I taught the CCSA R70 class and currently teach the CCSA R71 class which only underwent minor revisions from version R70. The differences for version R71 are:

- IPS content was moved to CCSE R71, so no questions about IPS on CCSA R71 exam
- Blade licensing chapter removed from CCSA R71
- Deployment Platforms chapter was shortened
- Smartupdate lab to apply R65 HFA_40 was removed
- Differences in supported upgrade path & backwards compatibility between R70 and R71 in Upgrades chapter

Thankfully the CCSA R71 exam is vastly improved over the CCSA R70 exam, see my posting here:

Passed CCSA R71 & CCSE R71 (http://www.cpshared.com/forums/showpost.php?p=2015)

Thank you ! So the R71 ccsa covers less topics than the r70 ? Ok, nice.
I hope the new exam won't have that much silly questions than the old R70 CCSA that was the worst
developed exam I ever saw !

You should try CCSA/CCSE R65, or heaven forbid the CCMA written exam. *That* was the worst written exam ever :)

Yes, the CCSA R70 class was 5 days and the CCSA R71 class is 4 days so the amount of material was reduced.

Since I study from the R70 Coursebook, I hope that they want to hear the minimum HW-requirements, upgrade stuff etc. from the R71 Release Notes ? Are that the "- Differences in supported upgrade path & backwards compatibility between R70 and R71 in Upgrades chapter" you mentioned ?

Yes, supported upgrade path and backwards compatibility changed between R70 and R71 and the exam covers version R71.

Are the test questions downloaded from checkpoint.com on the same skill level as the real exam ?
