    Default Which book can I use for SKO-003?

    Hello everyone, this is my first post (at least for a long time). I'm planning on studying for the Server+ SKO-003. The reason why is because I need it for a job position I'm applying to in about 2 months and they asked me to study this. Unfortunately I've had a hard time finding a book for the current SKO-003 exam.

    The only ones I've seen for SKO-003 are the Concise Server+ Study Guide by Jonathan Lau and the Server+ by LearnSmart. Do you recommend any of these? My preferred choice would be a Kindle/E-book edition because I live in Costa Rica and that would be the fastest/best way for me to start studying. Thanks a lot.

    If you can get the LearnSmart PDF, your Kindle should open it-- you'll probably need to transfer it from a PC via USB.

    Sure, getting the digital book isn't a problem. Which book would you recommend for this certification? Jonathan Lau's book or LearnSmart's book? Or maybe another one. Thank you.

    I have a Kindle Fire and found Jonathan Lau's Server+ book for about $10 but you have to have a Kindle to get it. The book is alright, but the if you have experience or have already taken other CompTia exams (A+, Sec+ for example) the test is kind of a rehash of a lot of that stuff...but yes, I agree it is tough to find good study material for the exam...if you have a Kindle, get Lau's book, even though it's not anywhere near the quality of Darril's book, it was more than enough for me to pass the exam.

    That big, ugly, spiral-bound text from axzo express was the best one I could find, it's on amazon for around 40 bucks. If you can get a hold of the CBT nuggets, they were very helpful as well.. Some may disagree, but I would recommend not underestimating the exam. It was more difficult than I thought it would be; however, I feel that having been a sys admin for only two months now, I could pass it with my eyes closed..

    I am personally using CBT Nuggets Server+. He states that he is going over the exam objectives for -002, but the exam objectives are for -003. So Idk. Either way, I score under 60% for my practice tests for Server+ through SkillPort and through tests I find on the internet. So this should atleast help compliment some weaknesses I do have.

    CBT Nuggets is 'decent', I havent seen many CBT nugget videos, but I hear they are pretty good and people usually get certified just using them.

    Hope this helps!

    Trainsignal also has Server+ videos and they are half the cost of CBT Nuggets, so that's another resource to consider.
