I bought the Exam Cram, the Sybex, the big Clarke "Update to 5" book and this one. The Exam Cram is packed with lots of stuff you don't need to know to pass the test, and doesn't flow in a very logical manner. I used the Clark notes primarily, with a little back fill from the big Clarke book to fill in the grey areas and passed the test on the first try. To be fair, I never even cracked the Sybex book so I have no input on that one.
This book is by a big margin the best certification study book I have come across. It is to the point, clearly written and more importantly, set out sequentialy to reflect the official Novell Education training materials. I passed my exam with this book plus some eight months experience of NetWare5.My hat off to David James Clarke for this book, I have no hesitation giving it five stars.
The previous reviewer is referring to a different book. TheClarke Notes are all meat and no filler (unlike the same author'sseries of Study Guides.) There isn't a single sentence wasted on non-NetWare topics, just 200 pages of solid study material. However, there are no sample test questions, so you'll have to get those elsewhere. There are quite a few references to sections and exercises in the Study Guide, but this book can stand alone too. I hope Clarke writes more of these and fewer of the Guides, because the Notes are far more useful.
One of the best certification books I have EVER read and I have "see them all". Clear, concise and to the point. Buy it now
