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!

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.

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,

Thanks for your guidence. Now I have some queries.
How long it will take for myself to prepare for the exam.
I have working experience on HPUX systems for the last 5 years but I am confused for preparing my self for exam.
Just tell me in which area of exam I have to focus more and send me some links from where can get help, sample questions, online training and etc on the internet or if you have any material (soft copy) please forward it to firstname.lastname@example.org
