    Given that R65 has not been supported since March, why would you be trying to book an R65 exam?

    ok. i get you. but what about R70....

    the lifespan for CP code is significantly short compared with other major fw manufactuers, i just find this a little surprising.

    The lifespan of CP code is actually rather long (5 years since initial release). See:
    Check Point Enterprise Support Lifecycle Policy | Check Point Software

    They will always try and have the exams using the latest features. Cisco does the same thing on their exams (RE: New NAT syntax for 8.3, etc). This is not abnormal.

    I work for a Check Point ATC, all R65 and R70 exams were retired as of June 30, 2011.
