1. Which certificate should I get? Is the subject line true?
2. I am on user side but have not been on admin side of the UX world. Do I need to or I can get away with it by reading books and practice with only the user privilege?
3. Can I ask questions towards helping me with the exam here, and if yes, in your experience, do people get answers?
Thanks to anyone who can help!
Solved! Go to Solution.

1. yes - 3H0-002 is the certification exam#
2. Being on the user side may be hard to get exposure to everyday sysadmin tasks such as LVM, etc.. but you can certainly learn it.
There is a practice test available here:
There's also a good book to help with studying. It's "HP certified" by Rafeeq Ur Rehman. http://www.hp.com/hpbooks/prentice/ptr_0130183741.
3. Ask all the questions you want in the forums! As long as you remember to assign points for contributing members, they'll be happy to reply!
There's a lot of experience and knowledge available here from real world SysAdmins
Hope this helps and welcome to the itrc forums!

You would probably need to know all sort of things, like NIS, NFS, NTP etc. Not only how to use them as well as how to setup them up.
Here is a linke you can look at and there is a sample test you can take and have a feel of how the test looks like.

a) my real name? or
b) my user ID which is assigned to me as CA91... something or
c) my email address?
sorry I tried them all.
I have waited for 2 hours just incase the database was not updated. Obviously I can log in here and post but uhuh, not that page to download the free practice test. I will try the second suggestion.
Many thanks to all of you.

You can't download the test. You take it on-line & the system grades it for you. Real-time feedback so to speak.
I'll try to navigate to that page & check it.

The userid that is requested from the HP Education web site is different from your ITRC id. (Come on HP, get the stuff synced up, will ya?!)
You must click on the new user registration area and sign up. Only then will you be able to get to the practice test.

I would like to withdraw my last comment but I can't. Another usability problem.
Sorry Denver but I did gave you a high mark :-)

I'd forgotten that the HP Ed site has their own IDs...BUT hey I remembered mine =~)
Here's the exact URL
But you'll need an HP Ed ID of course.

Here is another posting that also provides some info.

The price is approximately $160, but this also includes a voucher for taking the certification test 1 time (and the test is $100).
It's something that might be worth investigating. The link is:

The HP study book at the link supplied in the first response is all you really need; other than working with HP UX. If you can handle all the questions asked in the book at the end of the chapters you should feel confident taking and passing the test.

Also, a lot of the questions are misleading, or downright confusing. For example, the question has 4 answers, and you're asked to provide the "best answer". Three of the answers are all correct possibilities, with the fourth being "none of the above". The only answer they're looking for is the fourth.
As with any test, its not difficult if you study, but be sure to practice it. It may be best to beg/borrow/steal an older/slower HPUX computer--attached to a network--for which you can have root priviledges. Then, at least, you'll have a chance to practice some of the theory.

I just received an email from HP. Here's an excerpt:
"HP announced ... a broad portfolio of certification offerings in the newly integrated HP Certified Professional program. You may view the certification offerings at: www.hp.com/go/certification ... HP recognizes and values the investments of their certified professionals and will do everything possible to maintain these investments through this transition."
basically, we already certified people will no longer be HP Certified IT professional - HP-UX system administrators. We (an new certificate holders) will now have the CSA-HP-UX certification (CSA=certified systems administrator).
It still indicates that one of the ways to get a CSA-HP-UX is by taking HP-UX system administration exam #HP0-002. There is nothing mentioning that the contents of the test will change, but I just wanted everyone to know.
For those already certified, we'll be getting a new certificate and ID badge. I wonder if they'll also be sending new logos on a floppy and a new pin.

I just went to the hp web site and read about the changes all I can see is the title has been changed. I'm preparing for the EXAM 3ho-002
and I've been using the book written by Rafeeq Ur-Rehman, is this book still valid, I mean, should I consider any other materials that hp will recommend.
appreciate your reply.
02-13-2003 05:47 PM
As I am not an HP employee, I can only hazard a guess. But as far as I can tell, It boils down to a name change.
It would seem to me that if HP was going to use different test formats/questions types, they would also retire the 3H0-002 test. And I haven't heard anything about that happening.
Rafeeq Ur-Rehman's book is great. Besides work experience (and reading this forum), it was my main source of knowledge for passing the test. But I STRONGLY agree with Michael Tully's response: know about IP addressing and subnetting. Rehman's book doesn't go into it as deeply as you would need to answer some of the questions.

Failed it twice & Networking is letting me down . Scored 53% in this section. Does anyone know any braindumps on this... Starting to feel depressed!!!!
64% then 65% . Atleast I'm improving

First, of all, if you use braindumps you are lowering the value of the certification for the rest of us that aren't cheaters. If you use braindumps you are a dishonest cheater...period.
Second, HP will take away your cert if you are found out ot use braindumps.
Finally, you aren't doing yourself a favor...study the material, practice on a box...do it the right way, and it will mean more to you.
