Re: HPUX CSA certification

Hi Tanveer,

Im currently preparing for the exam myself, and as others have advised, I suggest you get a copy of Rafeeq Ur Rehmans book (HP-UX CSA: Official Study Guide and Reference - ISBN 0131448544) from your local book store. In addition, there are also practice tests on HPs web site.

All the best to ya in your preparations!

Re: HPUX CSA certification

Hi,

No, there is no soft copy of the book. Infact, getting hold of even the hardcopy is tough in India. Its not available in any of major book stores that I know of!

Anyway, take a look at these threads for information on the type of questions, no. of questions, braindumps, what's frequently asked etc:

The book Paul mentioned is the same book that Edgar referenced -- Rafeeq Ur Rehmans book (HP-UX CSA: Official Study Guide and Reference - ISBN 0131448544). I am HPUX CSA myself and I used this book to prepare. Very good book.

Re: HPUX CSA certification

Rehman actually has two different books dealing with certification, the above mentioned "Official Study Guide", and "HP Certified: HP-UX System Administration":

http://www.hp.com/hpbooks/prentice/ptr_0130183741.html

Both are good. The "Official Study Guide" is the newest and most up to date.

Re: HPUX CSA certification

List price is $59.99 in U.S. dollars, which converts to 2609.57 Indian rupees, if that helps.

Re: HPUX CSA certification

Dear Ahmed,
I did exam on 1/1/2005 and it costs me 62US$.I am first pakistani who done this certification in pakistan. I didn't read REHMAN book, i just worked on Hp Machines and read its offical trainging manual's and passed the exam with good marks.But i think its best to read the book first. Paper was not tough, just build your's basic concept.

With Warm Regards,

Re: HPUX CSA certification

Looks like the cost for an exam voucher is $100 USD.  The following sites should help you locally:
