I'm going to do the following exam:
Sun Certified System Administrator for Solaris 10 OS Part 1
and was looking for a book and practice exams. I want to find the best
one, so are asking for comments.
There seems to 4 posibiliies I can find. All of them have practice exams
(I think so anyway). Anyone care to comment on how good/bad the
questions are and how they compare with the real exam? (PS, if anyone
has any exams they want to send me, I'd appreicat it. Short of cash just
now, being unemployed).
Does anyone know if any of the exams can be used on Solaris? Seems a bit
off to have to buy a book on Solaris exams, then run the exams on a
Windoze PC!! There's an open-source php product for making exams
although I have not used it.
And it can't be too hard to adapt
is a basic apache server running at some port > 1024 so a non-admin can
run it. There may be other ways too. I'm sure if I was writing a book
aimed at Solaris, I'd make sure any materials run on Solaris. Perhaps
I'm must too anti M$.
Anyway, back to the books ...
1) "Solaris 10 System Administration Exam Cram 2 Exam 200 and 202 (Exam
Cram 2 S.)" by John Philcox
The problem with this is that it is not published until Feb 2006 and I
really want to get it asap, so this is out, although I thought I'd list
it just in case anyone does a Google at a later date and finds the post
If anyone has seen a pre-print and would make any comments I'm sure
others would not mind seeing them.
2) "Sun Certified System Administrator for Solaris 10: Study Guide
(Exams CX-310-200 & CX-310-202)" by Paul Sanghera
3) Sun Certified Security Administrator for Solaris 9 and 10: Study
