Hi,

I'm ACE (Accredited Configuration Engineer), which is PanOS 4 oriented certification.

Unfortunatly, there is no recommanded readings as far as I know, neither for CNSE nor ACE certifications.

The best way is to practice the most as you can, as written in the FAQ.

CNSE covers all the PAN features when ACE covers specific PanOS 4 features (Global Protect, Active/Active HA, ssl/ssh decryption, User ID and so on.

The certifications exams are pretty hard, since each questions has a timeout and you cannot review your answers.

Good luck.

Hi,

CNSE is more about configuration and scenario based questions, so practicing and getting more familiar with the GUI is the only way to get a pass.

Good Luck

I'm definately interested in the CNSE but as there is so little written about it, it's hard to guage when one would be ready to attempt the exam.

Any thoughts?

I'm in the process of writing a guide, just for my own benefit, but  maybe once complete, I can share with the community.  Right now, I'm  studing for the CNSE. I've passed both the ACE 3.0 and 4.0 and have a  study guide for these but not ready for publishing.

I'll keep everyone posted.

Anyone have a method to purchase a PA-200 for personal use/studying?

Just the ACE exam questions are timed and you cannot review, however, the CNSE is timed for the exam in total and you can go back to review your answers.

If anyone has taken the CNSE and/or have their own notes, please contact me and we can combine our research to develope a study guide and help each other pass the exam.

Hi,

I have found this interview of Michael Pawloski, who is in charge of the training material. Apparently, there is an available official training document to pass CNSE 3.1. However, I never found any reference on the Palo Alto Website. He also explains that the updated version of the training material related to CNSE 4.1 should be available on February 2012.

Hope this helps,

Cya.
