    I'll be starting my server+ in the not too distant future so I need to plan ahead and look to spend the companies money wisely! I know it's an old and very much asked question but a fair one at that...recommendations for study material for SK0-002 please?

    Just passed my Server+...with the help of the Thomson Course Technology CompTIA accredited Book.

    Its printed by ILT Series - ISBN 1-4239-1457-0 (1423914570)

    It's authorised by CompTIA and comes with 2 CD's crammed with CBT stuff, from a few hundered exam questions to matching exam objectives to particular parts of the online material and book.

    Cost around £30 from the US.

    Hope the above helps...if only 1 month after the original post :biggrin

    I originally purchased it direct from the Thomson Prometric website, however it seems they are either out of stock or are not holding it any longer. :cry:

    The book does show available on their US site:

    Might be worthwhile contacting Thomson on Monday if you are interested. :rolleyes:

    EDIT

    There is very little material on Server+ and most of it is out of date. I would look on CompTIA's website as they usually recommend reading material.

    Trip... he's looking for "the Server+ document"... I'll leave it up to your imagination what that document is that he is looking for...

    What I meant is... that's all the concepts he needs to study. But I wanted to encourage him to click on the link. :rolleyes:

    Hi All,

    Been a way for a while and i have come back to tackle this bad boy...

    I looked around for ages trying to find new material or if there was any going to come out in the nr future but nothing!

    So i have opted fro the Exam Cram 2 book - also i have downloaded loads of HP stuff for their AIS and ASE Exam which is Server Hardware exam - maybe this will help....

    Just printing this out now and will have a read and see if it is any good.

    This is sorta off-topic for this thread, but here goes anyway.

    I looked into the Server+ but was never impressed with it from a knowledge standpoint. To me it reminded me of the Linux+ cert. It covers a vast amount of territory, but at such a thin level that the knowledge is for all intents and purposes useless for every day usage.

    I mean, I could pass a Linux+ cert and be absolutely useless in a Linux environment as there isn't enough depth of knowledge there to do anything for me other than than to know some things exist. It seems to me that my time and energy would be much better spent in other areas.

    Am I incorrect in my assessment of the Server+ cert?

    Sometimes, just knowing things exist is enough to lead you in the correct direction when searching for a solution. :)

    If you're looking for books, I signed up here recently.

    I'm not sure how many CF members know about this or have signed up, but I think it's great value for money (considering how much I try to read, how little spare equity I have, and the fact I have no spare space left on my shelf).

    Plus they've got a free trial on at the moment.

    They have masses of Certification books. Sign up and have a browse, and see what you think :D

    This is true, but if a person's knowledge is that thin it takes a long time figure things out sometimes. I just think a person could get better value for their time and money in studying other areas.

    This is true... but as you know, the ______+ certifications indicate that a person has only the foundations of knowledge on that subject... they're not meant to show that you're an expert. :) To indicate a more advanced level of knowledge regarding a particular vendor's technology, one should pursue a certification other than ______+.

    I guess what I'm saying is... I agree with your general assessment of the depth of the Server+ certification, but slightly disagree with your assessment of the certification's usefulness. :)

    OK. I guess I'm just looking at things from a different perspective. I just think that if something isn't going to make me useful in the day-to-day world, then my time and money is better spent elsewhere.

    Knowledge is knowledge, and certifications are certifications. Knowledge is what makes you useful in the day-to-day world. Although you may learn something that is real-world useful while studying for certifications, certifications exist to impress an employer, and that's about it.

    The problem is, and it's the school of hard knocks that has taught me this, certifications don't impress anyone. Knowledge, experience, skills both soft and technological, desire and willingness to work, track record, and attitude are all given much more weight than certs. If you score high in those areas and 0 in certs you'll find a job much faster than if you score high in certs and low in those areas.
