I don't think that you'll need a guide for passing that basic exam :-)
Seems it's more for end users and only partially for for admins, isn't it?

In my opinion the best source for such things is still the Infocenter:
Check the "How-to Scenarios" (the "User" part!) and have a look at the "Operating System and Device Management" part:

You can of course reread these Redbooks:

The AIX 6.1 Differences Guide:
along with the old AIX 5.3 Study Giude:


But that's all meant for admins.

Good luck!

HI wmp... you're right.. but I need to begin with the  simplest test certification for AIX...

To tell the truth I've never made such certification test for any OS..., so I asked my company  to make this one and later I'll make test 000-221 (Aix 7 administration)....

Also my time is limited to study (work, home, kids, etc etc).

SO, with all this docs above I'm able to make the test? :)

The docs contain much more than is needed for the test.

Really, did you read the "Obectives"?

I think you should take a quick look at that list, and if you really think that you could run into problems - please tell me which part of the objectives list you think could become troublesome - I'll help you.

well.. I know this seems to be easy enough to get this exam.. the objectives are very easy as I read.. but what worries me is I answer the questions my way and not the way IBM wants.. and this trick can let you outside the test..

I'm worry  because I have never made a certification test.. (remember your first certification exam  and maybe you'll understand me how I feel now)

I know I can get this exam, but I'm just a bit nervous... that's it!
