Hi,

There are a couple of options here:

* Either the Checkpoint documentation available on the Checkpoint website or

* a 3rd party book e.g.: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Check-Point-NGX-Security-Administration/dp/1597492450/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1317379817&sr=8-1

Checkpoint is a fairly complicated product though so it doesnt get much more basic than going through the documentation.

Unfortunately there aren't any recent books about checkpoint products, which means the only thing that hasn't (really) changed over the years is the rulebase and one can figure this out easily by oneself.

My advise would be to read the R75 Firewall Administration Guide provided with the product. It's actually not that bad. Then use this information in a lab.
For more but also redundant information you can then consult the CCSA training material, which is quite expensive (iirc ~600$) or visit a one week course, that includes this material. Also there is a chance to grab these material off i.e. ebay.
More advanced features then are better covered in the CCSE training manual.
Loads of other (basic) questions have been answered and are available at the Check Point User Group or CPshared.
