Today I did the CCSE exam in Zoetermeer, this is the second exam you can do for checkpoint. After preparing it for around two months (in which time I went on holiday to Tunesia, been on business trip to Canada, had a weekend-holiday with Snow in Texel, searching for and arranging side-paths for a house which we are looking for, so basically study time was ~2 weeks) and spending a weekend and yesterday mainly to learn for the exam, it was time to do it.
I passed with a score of 85% (70% was required); so I didn’t do that bad. I got all kind of enthoustic responses from Snow, and I got a lot of text messages from my current assignment. Thanks folks! It’s appreciated!
Onward to CISSP (the materials seem boring so far) and Juniper (Which I am preparing already as next candidate) (also a dual track, the initial one, and the second level one), and then Cisco (if possible) and if then still possible, the BSDP (second level BSD certification) so that I have broad knowledge in multiple regions of the activities that Snow is offering :-).
