I have to tell you my friend CCSA R80 exam is the same - multiple correct answers or no correct answer in some cases. Not to mention there are plenty of R7x questions which a probably a leftover copy/pasted from a previous pool of questions (this is valid as of 1 month ago and before someone says - I left plenty of comments during the exam, thanks for leaving this option open). Really disappointing for a $300 exam. I've done Cisco, Juniper, Palo Alto, Microsoft, and Fortinet exams and quality control on Checkpoint exams is by far the lowest. I passed the exam but the disappointment stays with me. I'm sure it will be the same for CCSE R80 (the regular, not the update exam) based on people's comments around here...if I ever manage to take the exam because this ridiculous company ran by chimpanzees called Pearson VUE managed to sabotage my exam with some stupid "payment processing error" on their website just prior me sitting the exam claiming they hadn't charged me (and of course they did). Absolutely non-existing customer support - I waited 2 hours to get in a chat queue that tells me to go to the phone support (another 1 hour call to Australia that cost a kidney) which tells me to send an e-mail and go f*ck myself. I had to spend SIX WEEKS exchanging over 20 e-mails trying to get a refund from these knuckleheads and of course now I can't use the 35% discount code Checkpoint was offering until 15th June.
They refuse to provide a replacement discount code and I urge everyone to boycott them until vendors (CheckPoint and others) provide us with an alternative to Pearson. There used to be Prometric which were quite OK, what happened with them and why is Pearson a monopolist nowadays? Their online platform for "proctored" exams is horrible at best. You cannot login less than 15 minutes before the start, you need to download a huge piece of software, upload 6 full-resolution images from your phone, then do it a second time because it never works from the first time, then pray this happens within 15 minutes from the exam start hour. And if this is not enough then you get your exam interrupted by their stupid software because SKYPE WAS RUNNING?!? How did this happen when there is a pre-check for running software and everything was validated to be in order by their software and so called proctor? Their software goes fullscreen, you can't Alt+Tab or anything else. Or god forbid your Internet connection is not 100Mbps international peering - their software claims to be disconnected and forces you to restart the validation process (of course after you have uploaded the 6 images). It's just **bleep** built upon **bleep** built upon **bleep** as we used to say for our infrastructure in a company I worked in the past.
Just look at their Trustpilot score and Facebook community reviews:
This is by far the **bleep**tiest of all IT companies on planet Earth!
