Hi,
I would like to become a SUSE Certified Linux Administrator and I need to pass 050-720 exam.
I read about the test objectives but where can I find documentation to be skilled on these?
Studing the SLES 11 Administration Guide (https://www.suse.com/it-it/documentation/sles11/pdfdoc/book_sle_admin/book_sle_admin.pdf) it is enough to achieve the certification?
Any suggested manual?

Regards,
DeepItaly

Since exam 050-720 is for the SUSE CLA11 qualification please note that
SLE12 is now available so you might want to consider the CLA12 exam instead.

The manual will certainly help but practical experience of installing
and administering SLES11 SP3 would be better.

SUSE do have an on-demand training course available - see
https://www.suse.com/training/on-demand/

Did you know that you can also achieve a CLA qualification by either
taking the LPI LPIC-1[1] or CompTIA Linux+[1] exams? SUSE have an
agreement with LPI where LPIC-1 holders can apply for the SUSE CLA
certification and CompTIA Linux+ holders can get LPIC-1 which in turn
gets you SUSE CLA. So not only can you get two or three qualifications
for the price of one but these routes also have an advantage with study
materials available in print.

HTH.

Thank you for your reply. I did not find SUSE CLA12 Exam on SUSE web site.

LPIC are interesting but they are 2 exams instead of one and my boss ask me to pass SUSE Certified Administrator (no matter if 11 or 12).
