Wow, this is awesome!!!

Thanks so much for these, I really appreciate.. But I want to ask.. After going through all these, do you think I'm ready to attempt the admin exam? 

I am afraid not, @VICTOR_OGHIFOBI 
You will need to work through the admin manuals and to gather enough hands-on experience. We are not trying to replace the working education framework Check Point has already. We are helping newcomers to jump-start their careers even before they have enough time and resources to invest into the official certification path.


Great job Valeri!
