I took the Mac OS X Server Essentials v10.5 this morning, again at Parkland’s Prometric testing center. Things went much more smoothly for this test and I was in and out in less than an hour.I bought the Peachpit prep book for the exam and I have to say it was pretty comprehensive (at least in terms of preparation for the exam).
I got a 97.22% on the exam so I can now officially declare myself an Apple Certified Technical Coordinator. You only need a 69% to pass the exam, so you could miss 27 questions and still pass. I’m certain I could have passed the exam based on experience, without the prep book, but I know I would’ve been making a lot of educated guesses on portions of the OS in which I have limited/no experience.
Now I have to decide if I want to fork over another $600 to Prometric to take the remaining three exams to get the Apple Certified System Administrator certification.
