I'd like to get a book on ASA 8 to study for the certification exam. I have
not found one on the online book sites. Does anybody know of any?

I don't know of any third-party books about ASA8, but iAnywhere's
documentation is comprehensive.

We literally wrote the certification exam around the ASA Fundamentals
course, so I would certainly recommend the course materials as a study
guide.

FWIW a book on SQL Anywhere 9 is currently in progress, likely to
appear in Q1 2004.

I'm sorry if this has already been covered, I jumped into the middle of the
discussion. I also want to certify for ASA 8.0 as a developer. Do I need
to first study the fundementals, then the administrator and then as a
developer?

I have experience as a developer using ASA up to version 6.0.3, but feel
that I have a lot to learn.

I don't have the money to go take a course. Is there any way I can just
get the course materials that I need to study to certify in ASA 8?
