If you are a beginner to Solaris, an old-timer who wants a concise book on what is new to the OS or a person just preparing for the exam: this is the Solaris book for you.
As an IT administrator of a UNIX and Windows environment, I look for a book that gets me in to the material quickly, explains the "whys" and other questions that I may have, and provides abundant material and assistance for taking the test.
This book exceeds in every account. 1. Information quickly: Just as Solaris does not have a lot of fluff, this book is the same. Straight and to the point in a very conversational manner.
2. Why and other question: The author jumps right into the material and seems to have struggled upon your behalf to get to the meat of the subject so as to not waste your time. You are empowered by understanding the tasks and concepts which will ensure that you are not just a trained monkey typing commands without knowing the reasons why.
I am an Oracle employee (15y@SUN, 3y@Oracle, specializing in Solaris); I have contributed to the development of the Solaris 11 OCP exam, and am one of the coauthors of the other Oracle Press Solaris 11 book: Oracle Solaris 11 System Administration: The Complete Reference Oracle Solaris 11 System Administration The Complete Reference So, keeping in mind my potential(!) bias and background, here are some comments about Michael Ernests's OCA Oracle Solaris 11 System Administration Exam Guide.

Content according to OCA certification. Quite specific for certification, managing to keep the reader's attention. Very good book. I recommend.
