    I have the portable , desktop, service and support exams done.
    I really wanted to take a shot at the server test.

    How hard is it? I would take the one for 10.5 , I do have the Osbourne Mac Training Series OSX Server essentials book.

    thx

    45 views and no response. Has anyone taken this test?

    I just started studying for the 10.5 exam, I'm using the "Apple Training Series Mac OSX Server Essentials 2nd Edition" book by Peachpit"...

    I'm just waiting to get a Mac Mini so I can do some of the practical stuff. If only VMWARE would pull their fingers out and release Fusion with support for OS X Server :mad:

    I've been told it's the hardest exam they offer

    I did a 3 day Apple course for the exam but knew I would not have the knowledge to pass so I still haven't done it yet.

    I'm sure if you have a decent background knowledge (Users and groups, permissions, networking, services, etc, etc) and put enough study in you should be fine though.

    It was harder than I thought.
    I studied, but not enough. I mean, I passed, but definitely could have studied more.
    The book should be enough (coupled with practical experience), but make sure you read it cover to cover.
