Dell SonicWall CSSA Class

A couple of days ago, I found myself in a CSSA Dell SonicWall firewall class. I did not particularly want to go to this class, but I think I have decided that now I am at least glad to get a first hand look, formally, at this product.
The instructor was really good. His name was Ryan and he was a GlobalKnowledge employee. He really knew the product well and presented it in a knowledgeable fashion.
I have to say that I am not particularly impressed with this product, in comparison to other firewall players. I do have some experience in the past with SonicWall firewalls.  I won't go into all the things I do and don't like about this product, but I will say that there are some niche places I could see this in.
With that said, I took the CSSA test a day after the class.  The info was fresh in my mind and it is an open book test.  I had my student guide and the SonicWall you see below in front of me while I took the test.  Everything I needed for the test was there in front of me.  I did pass the CSSA test.  I think if you have a firewall background of some sort, you will probably do fine.
