    Hi there

    Are you looking for website material or books? Or would you be looking for training courses?

    I have listed some areas for you below:

    I have a website which has some good links to the best sites as well as 'how to material':

    Or here are some of the best sites:

    For Books:

    The best books I have found are the Kaplan Jones books:

    QA-IQ are probably the best for training courses and certification - quite good value and a couple of the trainers are pretty good...

    If you need any more info which is more specific, let me know...

    CBT Nuggets have good material:-
    Also, of course, Citrix training - which is through their training partners (some are on-line):-

    The best way to learn in my opinion, is to install the product yourself!  Start from downloading the manual for Presentation Server 4.  Here's a great link with all the Citrix Presentation Server manual downloads:-

    Get a trial version of Citrix Presentation Server - ask either a reseller, or if you have an account manager at Citrix - then ask for a favour (although they are not supposed to send trial discs out).  You'll end up getting the Citrix Access Suite, which includes Presentation Server - along with a license key that you can activate on the Citrix web site.

    If you need Microsoft Operating System software (e.g. Windows ;-), and you don't already have you own licenses - then here's a couple of options:-

    You will need some hardware to run it all on... here's the first step - check the Presentation Server manual for the minimum specs required to run it!

    Best of luck!

    I would agree with msguru...

    The best way to learn is to buy a couple of books and then build a test environment yourself. Then you can install the OS, configure terminal services, install citrix and its datastore (SQL db) and then publish apps to users.

    You can install most of the components on one server for evaluation purposes or you could use vmware...

    Good luck - any problems let us know!

    Another good link is this one from DABCC.. he is a well know citrix expert who wrote MIAB as a guide on how to build a good citrix environment....

    The above version of MIAB is for Metaframe XP though...

    He is still working on a guide for the current version....

    Just in case you are confused...
    The citrix offering has had a few name changes in past years....

    Metaframe XP 1.0
    Presentation Server 3.0
    Presentation Server 4.0
    Presentation Server 4.5 <current version>
