How to ace Check Point Certified Security Administrator exam?

Recently I was successful in passing Check Point Certified Security Administrator (CCSA) exam and now I am a Check Point Certified Security Administrator. Check Point Certified Security Administrator (CCSA) exam is a pretty straightforward exam that addresses the following topics and one need to score 70% to pass the exam.

  • Check Point Technology Overview
  • Deployment Platforms and Security Policies
  • Monitoring Traffic and Connections
  • Network Address Translations
  • User Management and Authentication
  • Using SmartUpdate
  • Implementing Identity Awareness
  • Configuring VPN tunnels
  • Resolving security administration issues

When it comes to exam preparations often needs to depend upon their experience along with either official training or self-study materials. In my case, I relied more on hands-on experience and Check Point CCSA GAiA 156-215.76  CBT nuggets by @KeithBarkerCCIE . This video series is really quite good as @KeithBarkerCCIE walks through the topics of the CCSA exam in a quite interesting way and simultaneously he builds a virtual lab and demonstrates what he is teaching, by this way one can certainly grasp the topics quite easily. I build a virtual lab and practised what I was learning by watching Check Point CCSA GAiA 156-215.76  CBT nuggets.  The video series is quite helpful for those, who just started their Checkpoint journey, as Keith explains the concepts and history of Checkpoint in less than 35 minutes in a most effective way.

The great things about CBT Nuggets are that you can avail their coaching facilities known as “Accountability Coaching” By availing this facility you are ensured that your progress is tracked and a dedicated coach will help you to determine your goals and set deadlines.  I was lucky to work with Megan Flores as she helped me build my goals and the objective behind this certification. She was a great mentor and I am thankful to her for the follow-ups and the motivation calls she made. It’s really helpful to set deadlines and be held accountable for those deadlines.

To summarize one with a good understanding of networks and firewalls can take this course and prepare well for the Check Point Certified Security Administrator (CCSA) exam. I believe Check Point CCSA GAiA 156-215.76  CBT nuggets by @KeithBarkerCCIE  is a great tool to ace the exam.
