    Default What do I have to learn for 156-915.71 (CCSE upgrade)

    Hi,

    I want to recertify my CCSE NGX R65 to R71.

    There are 26 documents in the R71-documentation-package (downloaded from Check Point) with thousands of interesting pages ;-)

    Which of these documents do I have to read, learn and understand to get a chance to pass the test - and what else do I have to know and train?
    I have daily practice with R60/R65/R70/R71 - but mostly administration-level (I know where to move my mouse for rules and NAT *g*)

    Thank you in advance for your comments!


    Here is a list of the documents out of the package I mean:

    The CCSE R71 Upgrade exam is supposed to cover only material new to the R70 and R71 courses. The CCSA course has not changed radically between R65 and R71 (other than the Messaging & Content Security material which you should definitely review), however the CCSE R71 class has been thoroughly overhauled and covers a lot of new R7X-based features that you have probably not worked with.

    I'd focus most of your study efforts on the CCSE R71 material, especially the blades that are all-new in R70/R71 such as SmartWorkflow, SmartProvisioning, SSL Portal-based VPN, IPS, & DLP.

    FYI, here is a list of the chapters in the current R71 courseware:

    CCSA R71 (4 days)
    - Check Point Technology Overview
    - Deployment Platforms
    - Introduction to the Security Policy
    - Monitoring Traffic & Connections
    - Using SmartUpdate
    - Upgrading to R71
    - User Management & Authentication
    - Encryption & VPNs
    - Introduction to VPNs
    - Messaging & Content Security

    CCSE R71 (4 days)
    - Management Portal
    - SmartWorkflow
    - SmartProvisioning
    - SSL Portal-Based VPN (Connectra)
    - Traffic Acceleration (SecureXL & CoreXL)
    - Management High Availability
    - ClusterXL (Firewall Clustering)
    - Advanced Networking - Dynamic Routing
    - Advanced Networking - Web Load Balancing/ConnectControl
    - Advanced Networking - QoS
    - Check Point IPS
    - Data Loss Prevention
    - SmartEvent
    - SmartReporter
    - Supplement: Advanced Troubleshooting & Debugging

    wow it's a lot of stuff to learn!

    Thank you - the list is a great help. It seems I have to read almost half of the documents.
    I think I have to reserve a lot of time for it.

    Any tips for labs?
