This time i got 89 questions, and i was scared because i mixed concepts of SmartEvent and i forgot about a few daemons/processes.
I leave here my notes guys to help you out.
And yes, i PASSED! So now i need to wait for my certificate and kit, Check Point needs 6 to 8 weeks to issue that. Shall i go to CCMSE? Maybe later, now it´s time to jump to VMware stuff, because any conversation which has cloud keyword becomes an Hot Topic!

Your Welcome, Glad you like my Videos!
Hi. Where can I find /buy the videos you mentioned above?
I’m afraid the CBT doesn’t have available these videos any more.
The link to the CCSE study guide doesn’t work. Could you please re-add the link.
the link had a gotcha, it’s fixed now.
can you provide the videos for CCSE?
I would suggest you that wait for some content on R80
