    Default CCSM exam materials

    Hello guys,

    I have to renew my CCSE and I think to do that with CCSM exam. As far as I can see the current exam is 156-115.77.

    My question is - where I can get materials for this exam? Is official R77 documentation together with ATRG documents enough for passing the exam? Unfortunately I can't go on some of the official Check Point trainings, so I have to find another way.

    Thank you!

    Start here:

    https://www.checkpoint.com/downloads...StudyGuide.pdf

    Some Check Point ATCs may have residual hardcopy CCSM coursebooks, there are two editions: R77 and R77.30. Either one should do the trick for the exam as the updates for the CCSM R77.30 edition were pretty minor, this is probably your best bet.

    There is also an electronic copy of CCSM R77.30 available for order at pricelist.checkpoint.com, select Training, then CourseWare Kits, then CPTS-DOC-CCSM-R77.30-EKIT.

    What Tim said.

    I still have a few hardcopies that I can heavily discount. However, depending on where you are, shipping may make the e-kit more affordable. Let me know if you're interested.

    Thank you for your replies ShadowPeak and Eric!

    Actually I started exactly with SecurityMasterStudyGuide.pdf and noticed that more of the topics are covered in official documentation, but I don't know whether this is enough.

    Unfortunately I'm not aware what is included in CPTS-DOC-CCSM-R77.30-EKIT or its hardcopy version. Could you give me more information about that?

    Thank you!

    The CCSM book is the lecture material and lab exercises used by an ATC to run an official CCSM class attended by students. There can sometimes be special areas of emphasis in the courseware vs. the official documentation, and that emphasis can become quite relevant on the exam. The CCSM coursebook is copyrighted, so the best I can do is refer you here for an outline of the material in the book and list of chapters:
