I have cleared my HP certification quite some time back (HP0-002 Exam) by using another book by Rafeeq ur Rehman. I recently decided to re-certify for HP CSA. The Exam code is now HP0-095.
This book covers all the topics required for current HP CSA syllabus which are mentioned on HP website. Although the cover of the book says that this book is for HP0-091 Exam, it is perfectly suitable for HP0-095 Exam which is going to replace the HP0-091. All the topics in this book are precise and to the point. Some topics like HP Integrity server, LDAP and HP-UX 11i V2 are available only in this book. The HP CSA official guide from Rafeeq ur Rehman is lacking all these latest topics, its outdated as it was published in Aug 2004.

So if you are looking forward to get the HP-CSA certification, this is the book for you.

I passed my HP-UX certification exam called CSA with the help of this book.

This book proved to be very helpful. I highly recommend this book to all who wishes to prepare and pass this certification exam in first attempt with excellent knowledge.

This book covers some topics that are not even mentioned in other competition books.

I already passed my CSA exam using another book written by Rafeeq Rheman. I bought this book for 2 reasons. The first reason is I need something to refresh knowledge before I take on the next level of the track which is CSE. The second reason is I wanted to add this book to my collection of UNIX/Linux system administration books.
It turned out I made a good choice. The book is really good. Chapters are short and go straight to the essentials. The book covers well the Networking, security, and LDAP section. Those are the tricky areas of the exam. LDAP was not covered in the Rafeeq's book but this book does the job. If I have to choose between this book and the Rafeeq, I will go for this book. The reasons are the following:

Pros:
The book covers all the topic on the exam
Chapter talk about the essential and important topic.
Some screenshots, if you are not familiar with the HP-UX gui.
The book has 564 practice exam questions, enough to put your brain to test.

Cons:
Perhaps the book layout but does not affect the topic at all and a few inconsistencies as expected.

My advice if you have the means get this book and the Rafeeq book to maximize your chance of succes on the exam. I give 5 stars.

I used this book as my primary study guide to pass the CSA exam, though even before taking the exam I was pleased with the book for many reasons.

The hardback is nice.

The introductory "unix for dummies" section which seems to afflict all Unix books published these days was of a minimal length, keeping most of the book focused on meaty subjects.

Though I've been an SA on HP-UX machines for many years I've never implemented any DNS or NIS solutions. Those topics and others are succintly explained - but without extraneous verbage.

Test takers can make great use of the almost 600 questions listed in the back. Though a bit of criticism here: a handful of questions had incorrect answers and some of the questions were vague and depended on the context of questions which preceded it. Unfortunaly, not all these faulty questions were listed in the author's errata page.
