Hey Guys/Gals,

I finally passed the R71 exam after my third try. I took the exam last year around August, one month apart from one another and failed on both tries. I was very disappointed but was not in any way upset since I had no prior firewall experience (non what-so ever!). I took the 4 day training on CheckPoint R71 with a certified checkpoint trainer. I could truly say that the official courseware that they offered was useless and did not really help me with eventually passing the test. I have nothing against the instructor who taught the class. He was well experienced and knew his stuff but the way that the course was laid out did not help me achieve any advantage of understanding firewall any better than if I had picked up PDF files on the CheckPoint website. I practically had to learn everything on my own to finally pass the test.

The first time I took the test, I scored a 61% second time 65% and the third time I finally passed with 80%. I like to help those out there who are in my position or is planning to take the test but is not sure what to study. Hereís how I passed;

Although it took me another 4 months to retake the test the third time (this was probably due to discouragement), during my free time I would scanned R71 PDF docs (note I wrote scan, a lot of useless information if you plan to read the entire thing and you are just going for Admin CCSA cert), familiarize myself with the Smart GUI consoles and studied from sample test question provided by the CheckPoint website. Iíve also create some flashcards on flashcardmachine.com to help me remember some of the questions on the CheckPoint test sample.

Anyways by the time I received my R71 cert, my company had already updated to R75. Let me tell you, I wonít make that mistake again to ask my boss to send me to a 4 day training seminar on CheckPoint. ;-).

But if anybody is still aiming for the R71 cert, please feel free to reach out to me for the flashcard links.
Best of Luck -

March, 15th 2012 the date i passed my ccsa r71 exam, it feels so good. I Passed the exam with score 85 of 100. I'am from indonesia, you just can say that i am new to the checkpoint product.

The only thing i can suggest to you all, of preparation to this exam is, you have to extremely understand in : 1. NAT and how it works, 2. VPN and stuffs. The rest you can practise with q&a pre-exam offered in checkpoint website.

So, thats all my friends, look forward for you success story too in this forums. Good Luck.

Have you considered that perhaps that user did not resort to cheating, but studied without dumps?

I don't know whether to laugh or cry, to treat this as a troll or a serious question.

Oh well, let's try it as a serious question: "Dumps" are cheating. Studying a list of illegitimately obtained real questions from the exam is cheating. If all you want to do is pass, and you don't care about learning the material, then you can find copies of many of the questions that you will be given on the exam. Read through those, study the answers, and maybe you'll pass the exam. But you won't be touching any firewall I control.

The alternative is to spend time reading the documentation, trying things out in a test environment, and understanding how the product actually works.
