The Real Citrix CCA Exam Preparation Kit

Prepare for XenApp 5.0


  • Shawn Tooley, Shawn Tooley is a consultant and network administrator with over 15 years' experience implementing Citrix and Microsoft technologies in mid- to enterprise-level environments. Shawn holds multiple industry certifications, including the CCEA and MCSE.

The Citrix Certified Administrator (CCA) credential is the first tier of Citrix certification. The CCA is most often sought out by IT professionals whose networks employ Citrix virtualization technology, and for those IT professionals who are seeking a broad base of general network expertise. The number of CCAs is estimated at between 65 and 70K, up from 45,000 in 2003. Citrix recently released a new version of its most popular product, XenApp (formerly Presentation Server). This new version is fully compatible with Windows Server 2008. To retain their CCA credential, all current CCAs will need to upgrade to the new software. This will be particularly important to those companies enrolled in Citrix partner programs, as current certification is a requirement of the program. When packaged with practice exams, this prep kit will offer an affordable, effective solution for CCA certification and re-certification.
