CCSA prep

So it looks like I will be doing a 5 day CCSA course next month, with the intent of sitting the CCSA exam afterward.

I have the CCSA NGX 65 I & II coursebooks, but is there any other reading material out there I should grab? Also looking to buy a Nokia box to use as a lab at work, can I run the SMARTserver right on the gateway with it? At work we have a separate server but imagine it would work the same otherwise?

Finally, how big of a jump is it from the CCSA to the CCSE?

    ccse used to cover cvp related items which in my view have kind of fallen off in use with chkp. Certification: CCSE NGX R65 . interesting, they added clusterxl, which if you have used it, is really nice.

    i would get the demo ver and do the enforcement point/mgmt server split. as i recall the ccsa, the chkp classes covered everything you would need to pass. that may have changed in the past few years though.

    ya from my experience so far with the products they seem very easy to pick up. I would think 5 full days of training with lots of labs should be enough to get me through CCSA, and hopefully get a good start on the CCSE if I choose to take it that far.
