Passing the Sun Certified System Administrator, part II exam
In February, I started discussing certifications from Sun, with a focus on those relevant to the Solaris™ operating system. There are two certifications currently available — Sun Certified System Administrator for the Solaris Operating Environment, and Sun Certified Network Administrator for the Solaris Operating Environment. Last month, I covered the Sun Certified System Administrator, Part I exam for Solaris 9.
This month, the focus is on the Sun Certified System Administrator, Part II exam for Solaris 9 (exam CX-310-015). This exam consists of 58 multiple-choice, drag-and-drop, and free response questions that must be answered within 105 minutes, with 65% or more correct to pass. A complete list of the exam objectives can be found here, and in this article the focus will be on what you need to know (and where you can find more information on those topics) to pass the exam. Almost all of the necessary information can be found within documentation posted by Sun, and when studying for an exam there is no better reference information to turn to than that posted by the vendor.
