4.0 out of 5 stars Book is ok but...., 31 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
.. ok so the book is good. I wanted it because I needed to pass the OCA Oracle Solaris 11 exam our OPN contract. However a couple of points you will find useful.

1) Oracle website is wrong. The exam topics are not complete.
2) The book doesn't cover the required exam topics, based on the exam topics from the website, not the books fault.

You will also need to look into AI (automated installer), and some extensive use of zfs for backups. You will also want to delve a bit further into networking, IPMP being one subject area.

Out of the 81 questions I was asked, 19 were not covered by the book or Oracles website(or even the course they describe in the GLP) which is pretty poor showing from Oracles point of view tbh.

However I passed, so all good, still annoyed me though.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to understand, technically detailed and accurate, 8 July 2013
This book successfully combines a style which is easy to read with an accurate and detailed technical content. It is laid out well, with a good "Contents" and "Index" for easy reference. It would be useful to any budding or experienced Solaris 11 system administrator whether planning to take an exam or not. It covers both SPARC and x86 systems. The electronic version (on a CD at the back of the book) usefully includes 2 practice exams including answers and detailed explanations.

4.0 out of 5 stars More than an exam guide, 31 July 2013
This review is from: OCA Oracle Solaris 11 System Administration Exam Guide (Exam 1Z0-821) (Oracle Press) (Kindle Edition)
The Oracle Solaris 11 Exam Guide provides a detailed and yet clear explanation of the features of the Solaris 11 Operating System. Despite being geared mainly to the OCA exam, it also provides useful information about topics not currently covered by the exam objectives. Its succinct yet easy to understand style proved to be highly enjoyable. The book encourages you to focus on understanding the Operating System features rather than providing a huge amount of information for the sole purpose of passing the exam. In this respect, it is a welcome change.
