When our company started using Notes, I was given a CD and a book. I have managed to set up a single server domain with around 100 users and a couple dozen remote users. They have now ceded to my request for training and certification, and as a result I start my CLS shortly and then I'll go on to CLP. What is the best book to use for these courses? I currently have "Domino System Administration" by Kirkland, and "Mastering Lotus Notes R5". Also, I would like to move to Domino/Notes 6, when it comes out - are there any certification courses out yet and is it very different from 5?
We highly recommend using a variety of preparation resources, including Lotus Professional Certification exam guides, experience, courses and other materials. For a complete list of preparation materials for R5 Certification, you can go to the R5 Certification paths document at www.lotus.com/certification, select Certification Choices from the left navigation bar, select the Certification path you are interested in and then click on the exam title you wish to take. For each exam, you will find a complete list of exam preparation materials. The Notes and Domino 6 Certification path information has just been released at www.lotus.com/certification also. You'll notice that the paths are very similar to those in R5 and for those already certified as a CLP or PCLP in R5, there are update exams available to take you to Domino 6 Certification beginning September 30. Some Lotus Authorized Education Centers are offering courses on the Notes and Domino 6 Update curriculum. For a complete schedule of courses worldwide go to:
