Books for 259 (PS 4.5/XenApp)

Are there any books available for exam 259? If not, should I use 256 material to prepare for 259?

Thanks.

    I wouldn't use 256 material. Citrix likes to focus on what is different between the last version and the new version on their exams.

    Go to the Citrix support site and download the admin guide. It's very boring but it will be your primary source. You will need to look through some of the other admin guides, ex. Web Interface, Secure Gateway, etc. Use the exam objectives to figure out which products and versions to look at. Check www.citrixxperience.com for practice questions and a review guide. Sometimes the course book will show up on ebay. You can also buy the book from a CALC, but the last time I purchased any they were around $300.

    You should have a good understanding of Windows 2003 server and terminal services if you do not already.

    I just noticed from your profile that you have 70-290, 70-291, and 70-293, that should be more then enough knowledge of Windows 2003 for the CCA PS exam.

    CitrixExperience.com has a practice test and study guide available as well if you're interested:

    Haven't see the 259 one so I can't comment on the quality.
