New Study Guide: "Oracle Solaris 11 System Administration"

A new helpful resource for Solaris 11 exam preparation has just been released. "Oracle Solaris 11 System Administration" by author and educator Bill Calkins covers effective installation and administration of an Oracle Solaris 11 system. In addition to being a valuable, comprehensive study guide, the book also serves as a complete reference guide for the everyday tasks of an Oracle Solaris System Administrator.

This book can be a valuable addition to your preparation for the Oracle Solaris 11 Advanced System Administration (1Z1-822) certification exam. This exam, combined with the Oracle Certified Associate, Oracle Solaris 11 System Administrator (OCA) certification and a training requirement will earn you the Oracle Certified Professional, Oracle Solaris 11 System Administrator (OCP) certification. This valuable credential is designed for Oracle Solaris System Administrators with a strong foundation in the Oracle Solaris 11 Operating System as well as a fundamental understanding of the UNIX operating system, commands and utilities. This certification covers topics on core elements such as: configuring network interfaces, managing swap configurations, crash dumps, and core files.

The 822 exam is currently in beta at the greatly discounted rate of $50 USD, but the beta period will soon be closing (likely the end of this month/June 2013), so be take advantage of the opportunity to be one of the first to hold this new certification. 

Bill Calkins also recently posted some tips for taking Oracle Solaris 11 certification exams.
