So far I’ve been able to take one test a month this year. In March I passed the Apple server essentials test. Just as with the support essentials test, my experience made the test easier. I’ve been testing and working with Mac Minis functioning as web servers, so expanding my OS X server knowledge is extremely helpful. The Mac mini is a great hardware platform for a web server. It could run Windows or Linux as well, but OS X is perfectly matched with the hardware.
