    This book is not out yet so I cannot comment, but says it has 100% coverage!

    The Citrix Official Course ware covers all of the items that covered and are easy to digest. However, if you are in the UK you can only get these if you attend an Official Course at a CAL.

    To add to your learning (whatever it may be), I highly recommend the Citrixxperience.com products. I know that Jeff has recently passed the course using his own material. He has subsequently updated the study guide and question to further assist with your studies. I have not used the A05 products but have used most of the others and they are outstanding.

    I suggest that you get an install and play around, however, there are some things that you need to know the theory of too so read will be required.

    If you have lots of hands on, you could use the admin guides to help cover the “gaps” and then the Citrixxperience.com products. However, I highly recommend the Official Course ware, if you can borrow this from someone even better icon_wink.gif

    You need to get yourself a login over at Citrix Systems My Citrix (if I remember correctly, I have partner access so I get confused) then you should be able to get the software, which you can use for 96 hours. If you needed an extended license you need to contact a Citrix partner and ask them to cut you an evaluation (I think it still works like that).

    The CCA - (1Y0-A05) XenApp 5.0 on Windows Server 2008 exam is the latest exam. Obviously you would need to install XenApp 5 on Windows Server 2008 as it is a different product on Windows Server 2003 (almost identical to Persentation Server 4.5).

    I hope this helps.
