is for my mom and dad. Dad I know you are with the Saints but your presence
is surely felt. You both gave me the source of my faith, a deep respect
for family, a desire to excel in education, the belief that hard work
is a good thing, and above all a sense of humor. I love you both.
In nomine Patris, et Filii, et Spiritus Sancti. Amen!

available for review on InformiT.com.
Review from CertCities.com,
by Emmett Dulaney, with Reference to this Exam Cram 2 title:
every certification exam, it seems as if there’s at least one
expert book written that holds all the secrets to acing the test. In
the case of this exam, there’s no question, in my mind, about
which book that is: “Novell NetWare 6.5: CNA Exam Cram 2”
by Warren Wyrostek."
as the Book of the Week on CertCities.com
Comments from Amazon.com:
I had the pleasure of having Warren as my Netware 6.5 instructor. He
really knows what he's talking about and presents the information in
a clear, concise manner. He doesn't present fluff, just what you need
to know. I often refer to this book instead of my class materials to
refresh my memory. I haven't taken my exam yet (intend to soon), but
after having taken the class and having this book, I feel certain I'll
pass on the first try.
2: June 3, 2005-
for about 3 ½ weeks using this book and the CD and passed the
exam today on my first try. I don't have any Novell experience. The
CD has many quirks, like "two" instead of "2" GB
for an answer, and several wrong answers. The CD is the weakest part
of the package. The book has some minor errors: "in to" instead
of into, in many places, and an obvious misplacement of information,
off by a bullet. I wasn't able to find errata for the book. The weakest
part of my exam was not being able to navigate through the utilities,
iManager and Remote Manager for specific tasks, the book is a weak in
that area but otherwise seemed to cover all of the material for the
3: 8/05- Using
this book I passed the exam an my first attempt after a couple of months
study and with no previous experience of Netware. It is worth getting
access to an instance of Netware to learn your way around the various
tools since these come up in the exam. The author's website has an errata
and a few other useful extras and is worth visiting. I concur with the
previous comments that the CD could have run better. The practice exams
in the book are more than sufficient however.
4: September 20,
taking this exam I had gone thru the 2000 some odd pages of the Novell
6.0 study guide for the CNA. Be careful in just using Novell's books.
Supplement this information with Mr. Wyrostek's book, quite a few things
are different on the 6.5 then the 6.0. You are going to need this book
for the exam.
As to structure
please pay careful attention to all notes and alerts the author provides,
think of them as explanation points!!! and then think of them as explanation
points!! and then think of them as explanation points again!!! When
the author suggests that you carry out the functions of the application
services (iManager, Virtual Office, iFolder etc. ) actually do it, these
were no joke. Do everything you can to setup and configure these services,
memorize all of your file rights, file and directory attributes, object
rights, and property rights. I wish you all the best of luck on the
exam and I thank the author for publishing this book. PASS
are paragraphs and there is no way you are going to do it in 20 or 30
mins no matter how many practice questions you can answer in under 5
seconds so go to the bathroom ahead of time :)
5: 10/05-Mr. Wyrostek's
book is an excellent product. I studied it for 4 months and had been
practicing in an actual NW 6.5 environment. The test was difficult,
but I passed. I reccomend this book, but I would also recommend spending
a lot of time practicing on NW 6.5. Make sure that you know a lot about
iManager, iFolder, rights eDirectory and file rights.
6: 10/05-I bought
this book 2 weeks before sitting my CNA 6.5. It's an excellent resource
that covers all the exam objectives clearly and concisely. Each chapter
ends with questions that you'd typically find on the exam. The end of
the book also contains two complete practice exams that will prepare
you for the real thing. After two weeks of study with this book and
some hands on practice with Netware 6.5, I scored (736/800) on the test.
The exam simulator
that comes with the book is very poor though. However, after being in
touch with the author, this was beyond his control and not his fault.
The questions in the book more than make up for this shortcoming.
The author has
also setup an excellent website (...) that supplements the book.
If you are thinking
of sitting the Novell CNA exam, this book is essential.
Comments from E-mail:
1: For starters,
I’d like to thank you for a more than helpful body of work, as
it relates to your Novell NetWare 6.5 CNA | Exam Cram 2 Study Guide.
on my first attempt!
2: I took the exam
again today and passed. I would like to thank you again for helping
me out with the issues that I missed on the 1st exam.
There were still some questions that were very difficult. There were
about 20 questions that were screen prints and you had to click on the
Thank you again.
3: I see Novell
coming back especially in Europe. But what concerns me is Novell's lagging
training efforts. Bookshelves at all the major book companies are void
of any Novell books. The only reason why the CNA 6.5 has made it the
door is because it is an Exam Cram2 publication.
4: I used your
book to prepare for this exam and passed yesterday, which is pleasing
for someone starting from zero knowledge two months ago. I found the
book very helpful. The two exams at the back were especially useful
in testing my readiness.
5:- 9/05- First
of all thanks for writing your excellent book Exam Cram for Netware
6.5 CNA. I just passed the test today (736/800). Your two practice exams
are excellent. Many of the questions that came up where similar or even
the same as the ones in your book. I noticed that iManager tasks and
iFolder weighed very heavily in the exam (about 7 questions). Perhaps
you can share this on your web page.
time ago I emailed you asking for more practice questions for the 050-686
CNA exam. I used your book for this exam and passed. The truth is that
I barely passed even though I played with Novell NW 6.5 for the past
The exam was not
easy. Actually I encounterd many difficult and complex questions. Some
of them were pretty long. A lot of questions were about iManager, its
configuration, iPrint, iFolder, VO and many file and eDirectory rights
Anyways, I believe
your book is a good resource book in addition to actual experience with
NW 6.5 server and Netware administration. I will surely reccomend your
book to my friends, but I will underline they have to practice the real
things in order to pass. I got 672 points... low, but passing grade.
I am disappointed
that Novell tests are left behind. There are still many companies that
use Novell, but there are very few goods book out here for Novell. I
hope you will be working on a next, 6.5 series book for CNE.
Comments from CramSession:
1: Passed with
709 (out of 800). Know the factual details (URL's, where things are
on SYS, what tools do what functions etc). Used the Exam Cram book (Wyrostek)
which covers everything you need to know and has plenty of practice
Comments from the Guestbook:
1: I am very interested
in practice tests for the 050-686 test.
Excellant book and training guides. Kudos to you!
2: Just can't understand
why there are so few good quality books, sites/training aids LIKE THIS
ONE for NOVELL/NETWARE.
3: Thanks for sharing
your hard earned knowledge. I look forward to coming back and referencing
the material during my studies for certification.
4: I really like
what you are doing with your website. It is actually pretty cool, and
I wished that during my twelve years at Novell I would have found a
way to help more people like you to do more website like this. I look
forward to at some point signing up for your services.
