HP Certified: HP-UX System Administration 
contains detailed lists of exam objectives, summaries of keypoints and challenging review questions after every chapter, plus a complete sample exam. If you runHP-UX, this book is all you need to get certified. Even better, it's all you need to get results.
I have tried to write a book that covers all HP-UX system and networking administration concepts. Thebook is divided into three parts. The first part consists of Chapters 1-11. It covers general UNIXconcepts, user commands, and shell programming. The second part of the book covers HP-UX systemadministration and consists of Chapters 12-25. The third part consists of Chapters 26-36 and is dedicatedto computer networking concepts and HP-UX network administration tasks. The book is divided intothese three parts according to requirements of the HP-UX certification examination. This is also quite alogical way to present the material to a UNIX system administrator. At the end of each chapter, you willfind chapter review questions to check your understanding of the material presented in the chapter.There are some sample test questions under "Test Your Knowledge," which will provide you an idea ofwhich type of questions are going to be asked in the actual exam. I have tried to use a combination ofsimple and difficult questions in this part. Answers to the review questions are provided in Appendix A,and answers to the sample test questions are available in Appendix B.While writing this book, I have tried to explain all system administration concepts in reasonable detail.Many examples are presented in each section of a chapter to help the user understand what happenswhen a particular command is executed. Commonly used command-line switches are also listedwherever appropriate. You will also find many screen shots showing what happens when you select amenu or press a button in the GUI windows. I have also tried to explain each system and networkadministration task using both command-line utilities and System Administration Manager (SAM). Most

"old-fashioned" people would like to carry out many tasks using the command-line interface, which isalso very important for passing the HP-UX certification examination.The book is organized such that it progresses from simple-to-understand concepts to more-difficult andcomplicated ones. The same strategy is also implemented in each chapter. Figures, tables, andexamples are presented wherever helpful to communicate the concept. The first few chapters containmore examples than the later ones to give a user a good start.Another consideration in the organization of the book is logical relevance and order of the chapters. If anidea or concept depends on another concept, it is placed later in the book.This book is intended to be the most comprehensive book on HP-UX. It not only covers the HP-UXcertification exam, but it also serves as a reference book for even the most experienced HP-UX systemadministrators. The first part is designed with the most basic concepts so that anybody who is new to HP-UX can get the full benefit. The next two parts cover more-complicated system and networkadministration tasks. Both novice and experienced users will find interesting things here.
Part 1: Fundamentals of UNIX Systems
The first part is an introduction to the UNIX system. This is a more-general UNIX part and consists oflogin and logout procedure, file and directory manipulation, file editing, an introduction to the POSIXshell, and file security/permissions. This part shows the concepts of users and groups, which arecommon to all UNIX systems. UNIX commands related to all these topics are presented and the morecommonly used options of these commands are discussed. This part also throws light on standardinput/output and I/O redirection. Chapters 10 and 11 introduce shell programming concepts. Here youwill find a number of shell programs, up to elaborate shell variables and flow control structures.
Part 2: HP-UX System Administration
The second part is the core HP-UX system administration part of the book. It fully covers all issues fromthe installation of HP-UX to managing devices, security, and system performance. The part starts with anintroduction to System Administration Manager (SAM), which is a comprehensive HP-UX tool meant forsystem administration. Installation of HP-UX on a server or workstation is presented next. After that, youwill gradually progress from basic to more-complex system configuration tasks, building a kernel,managing devices, adding/removing users, and concepts of the HP-UX file system.
Part 3: HP-UX Network Administration
The third part covers HP-UX network administration. It also contains general networking concepts suchas the ISO-OSI reference model and TCP/IP networking. One chapter is dedicated to ARPA/Berkeleyservices. Then NFS, NIS, DNS, and NTP are covered.

Reach the testing center at least 15 minutes before the scheduled starting time. You have to sign afew papers and show identification before you start the test.
Have with you at least two pieces of personal identification: One of these must contain yourphotograph. For example, valid identification documents might be your driver's license and a credit card.
You don't need to carry any paper or pencils with you.
Carefully read each question before answering it.
Try to answer the easy questions first. If a question is taking a long time, just mark it and move tothe next question. You are allowed to go back to review your answers and answer any leftover questions.The first target should be to go through all the questions from start to finish.
When selecting an answer, try to rule out some of the options. This will help you select the rightanswer.
While reviewing your answers, try to read the question very carefully: You may have chosen a wronganswer because you have misunderstood the question.
