Tailored to the scope of the Sun Solaris network administration exam (exam 310-043), the Solaris 8 Network Administrator Training Guide provides introductory and intermediate-level coverage of the TCP/IP protocol stack, including key utilities and services, as implemented by Sun's commercial version of Unix. Rafeeq Rehman uses plenty of examples and a lot of "why we do it this way" explanations to help his readers become competent configurers and troubleshooters of Solaris servers and workstations on Internet-standard networks. Some readers may wish for more coverage of the specific characteristics of the Solaris network architecture, but the book follows the exam's lead and covers general networking subjects in equal depth.
Kudos to Rehman and New Riders for their handling of practice questions. At the end of each chapter, there are between 10 and 25 multiple-choice questions in the style of the actual exam. Answers to these questions appear--with explanations, thankfully--in an appendix. That's what you expect in a certification-preparation aid. This book's companion CD-ROM exceeds expectations, though: It's nicely set up and allows you to see the answers ("Study Mode") or go through on your own, without help ("Exam Mode"). There are only 150 questions, but they're different from the ones printed in the book. A nice addition: A tracking utility to monitor your progress over time and point out your weak subjects. --David Wall
