    I like using test engines to prepare for these exams...without being able to find a good book does anyone have any suggestions about a good test engine or better a book?

    Have you looked at Sybex or the A-I-O, by Bigelow?

    These two are pretty much the leading books for A+, NET+, Sever+ and Sec+

    Also, follow the objectives and read white papers from vendors and such.

    Transcender puts out a good test engine. I use it with all of my tests.

    Any particular reason you are doing this exam? IMHO I save the time and $$$ and skip this exam. Move onto the M$ path instead

    Thats what I was told by someone. MCSA/E is better than server+, although server+ is quicker. You get what you work for.

    Is there even a book out that maps to the Server+ 2010 objectives?

    I looked on Amazon and all I found was this Amazon.com: Server+ (SK0-003) eBook: PrepLogic: Kindle Store which is kindle only for $9 and one of those Axzo Press books which are textbooks and cost almost $160.
    The rest of the server+ books were older editions.
    No longer work in IT. Play around with stuff sometimes still and fix stuff for friends and relatives.

    This is a good certification to have if you work in or plan to work in a pc technician -break/fix sort of role. All of the major vendors require this cert as a prerequisite for thier individual server hardware certifications. I used the sybex studyguide and server+ exam cram with transcender practice tests.

    Unfortunately there are few Server+ books for the SK0-003 2009 objectives. I found the same results on Amazon as reported above, but found the PrepLogic MegaGuide (I assume it's the same thing as the Kindle PrepLogic guide) on sale for $1.

    Currently, the sale is over with (they're $34 at the present), but PrepLogic does seem to run it often, here's a link to their MegaGuides. I bought a few of them during their sale: Network+, Server+, Security+, CISSP. The Security+ one was quite good and helped fill in some holes in the Sybex book.
