Also, do you have any suggestions for retaking the test? What are the best study materials for Server+ test ? I am 57 years old and was an EE engineer. Do you think I can find a job in a small biz? I have earned A+ and Network+ since last year. I am studying on my own at home. Thanks in advance for your answer.
As for best study materials for Server+, Trevor Kay's Server+ Certification Bible from Wiley (ISBN: 0764548093) generally gets the best marks; you'll probably find the Exam Cram reasonably helpful, too. Keep in mind, however, that a new version of the Server+ exam is coming (the beta version based on the 2004 objectives just closed in mid-October), and a new version of the exam will be publicly available early in 2005. Thus, unless you're planning on a retake pretty soon (before April 2005, anyway) you may have to switch to the new exam objectives, which make all existing books more or less obsolete anyway.
As for your age and experience, while it is indeed tougher for those over 50 to find work in high tech (I'm 52 myself, and know whereof you speak), it's by no means impossible. Given your experience and drive, I can say that if you keep at it and work to remedy those areas where you had trouble on the last Server+ exam you took, you should not only pass, but you should also be able to find the kind of job you want!
