8 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Nickorossa on 23 Oct 2003
Format: Paperback
I used this book as my only study guide to the two SCSA exams and passed with 82% and 75%. On the whole it's clear and easy to follow. If anything it could do with a few more diagrams to explain how some things fit together, especially for RBAC, networking and advanced installation.
There are a few too many references to the man pages and one or two small things that came up on the exam not covered in the book, but nothing really serious.

The Best Solaris 9 Book Out There 3 Dec 2003
By "curtismayfield2k" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is clearly written, with useful examples that seemed to anticipate the questions that I was forming before I could even completely articulate them. The text prepared me well for the practice exams, which prepared me well for the actual exam.
All hail Quentin Docter and the Cybex Study Guides!

Excellent Buy... 4 April 2005
By Kathryn L. Tate - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I have been through all of the certification books for Solaris 9 and this one by far offers the most for your money. I was so happy to find it. I would recommend this book along with the Exam Cram book.

great book from a solaris certified syadmin 27 Nov 2003
By Patrick Amirian - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
this is by far the greatest solaris book I've bought!
for my certification I've gone through the exam cram book, the McGraw-Hill Osborne book and also this one! I have to admit that this book is the best book from my 3 solaris books.
so if you want to pass the exam by reading only 1 book, then this is IT!!
