Overview

Primarily Written for those who want to earn the Sun Certified System Administrator (SCSA) certification for Solaris 10, this guide presents full coverage of the official objectives for both the required exams: CX-310-200 and CX-310-202. In spite of the laser sharp focus on the exam objectives, this is not a cram style book. Written in a classroom-based teaching style, this book presents material in a sequential fashion: topics and chapters build upon the previously covered topics and chapters. There is no hopping from topic to topic. An introductory chapter for beginners and a cohesive, concise, yet comprehensive presentation of the material makes it a self contained book that requires no prior experience in Solaris or UNIX. Even after passing the exam, you will find yourself coming back to use this book as an on-the-job reference.



Full coverage of exam topics includes:



  • Basic and advanced Solaris 10 installation


  • Managing file systems and core dumps


  • Performing user and security administration


  • Managing network printers and system processes


  • Performing system backups and restores and managing storage volumes


  • Managing naming services


  • Managing role based access control and system messaging


  • Understanding fundamentals of TCP/IP networking and managing network services




The book features complete details on all exam objectives, 250+ practice questions, step-by-step exercises, on-the-job elements, a two-minute drill at the end of each chapter that reviews the key points in the chapter, and chapter self-tests. The CD contains MasterExam practice exam software with all new questions, a Searchable electronic book, and a second practice exam (with free online registration).

    Don't buy this book and think it will prepare you for the exam.

    Don't buy this book and think it will prepare you for the exam. I know the contents of this book inside and out but the actual Sun exam asked questions that were not covered. Almost like the exam writers had a copy of this book and made sure not to include certain questions based on the fact it was covered in this book. plus there are tons of typos and errors, especially in the practice exams.
