My trainer told me that modules 333, 423 are quite extensively used, hence i should focus on clearing those first and then go for module 429 if i want to.
Reason i wanted to ask this is because RHCSS cert costs quite some money where i live (training+exam).
In my case i'm a final year postgraduate student with no experience in any company whatsoever, sure i've experience of deploying a redhat machine as a server in a LAN network (when i was preparing for RHCE) but does it really help if you have done a 1-2 years bit in some company?
IMHO, it's best to go for it while the information is still fresh in your mind.
It doesn't hurt to have experence by any means...it's just that if you're going to wait...be prepared to "re-learn" some things because you can't remember anyting.
An unpopular opinon of mine; but I say go for while while it's still fresh in your mind.
