CompTIA Linux+ exam
 
Hello, yes I am new here and yes I did search the forums on this topic! I hope you dont mind that I start my own thread as certs and information are always changing so I thought I'd start anew.

anywho, I've been reading the Linux+ Complete Study Guide and it's going ok. (I'm very new to linux but grasp it rather well so far).

I also have some tests from actualtests and testking. As of now, I've finished the first half of the study guide (LX01) and have been reviewing the questions on the practice tests.

I've noticed many questions on the AT & TK LX01 practice test is actually material from the LX02 part of the study guide book.

is the LX01 & LX02 tests taken at the same time when getting the Linux+ cert? is there any differential on the cert test? Meaning, can question #3 on the test, easily come from the last chapter in the study guide book?

any other suggested reading materials? I've found the practice tests are much more advanced then the study guide book.

It might be best if you give us questions you're having trouble answering so we could point you to appropriate reading material. As you know there's a lot of information out there about Linux.

The linux documentation project is a good start for any Linux newcomer. More specifically check out the Guides as there's a lot of useful in-depth information there.

On a more offline level, if you have a GNU/Linux distro setup to practice on you can

Code:

ls /usr/bin
and then run man <some_command> from the programs in the /usr/bin folder. That is how I first learned about most the commands available in Linux which can be invaluable. For other paths which you can list out then echo the $PATH variable.

Code:

echo $PATH
SAM

Add to the list using 'info' from the 'cli'. You can have multiple consoles or screens to learn the commands & functionality along with 'man command'.

Just passed the LX0-101 exam today. There was some surprises for me in the exam which I didn't expect though.
Will give the 102 next week. Lets see how that goes.

Congratulations :)

Thank you. It was just basics but I would say RHCE was far more easier than this as you can look up man/info for options and it's quite painful to memorize all the options for commands:(
