Solaris System Administration 1 (Comparable to Sun's SA-238)
Solaris Training Overview

This course is designed to teach you how to administer a standalone Sun workstation running Solaris 8 or Solaris 9. It covers all the topics that are covered on the first Sun Certification Exam. The course covers the exam objectives in enough detail for the inexperienced administrator to learn the objectives and apply the knowledge to real-life scenarios. Experienced administrators will find the material in this course to be complete and concise, making it a valuable reference guide. The course addresses the Certification Exam objectives in detail, from start to finish. If you are unsure about the objectives on the exam, this course will teach you what you need to know. After each chapter, there are extensive review questions and exercises. Included with the course is an ExamGear CD-ROM, which can be used to assess your knowledge of the objectives covered on the exam. This CD-ROM contains sample questions that you are likely to see on the real exam.
