I am about to give RHCE 6 exam, Please guide me.
 
Hi all,
I am about to give RHCE 6 exam. I don't have any linux background although I have RHEL 5 books I don't know any thing about exam.
Can any one please give any tips or suggestion from his or her own experience.
I am in desperate need of help.
From where can I find latest syllabus for RHEL exam and what are differences from previous version.

I have heard RHCE exam is very tough to pass and RHCE 6 is much more tough then previous version.
Please give me any tip to crack this exam because I have to clear it at any cost.
Please do help.

IS RHEL BOOKS (All the three) are allowed during exam Hours.

Seriously??? You have NO Linux background, and you're going to take a certification test?

First, part of the confidentiality agreement folks sign, is saying that we're not allowed to give out hints or test specifics. You can find out about the RHCE test from RedHat's website. And if you have to "clear it at any cost", then the answer is simple:

Get qualified to take the test...LEARN the subject, so that you have a certification that actually has some MEANING. Otherwise, it will be VERY obvious to ANYONE who has to deal with you, that you don't know what you're doing, and you will quickly lose whatever job you manage to get with a 'certification'.

Linux is an applied science. This means you must get your hands On it. If you don't have any linux background do not waste your time taking the exam.

Indeed you are, and the best help you can get is to help your self first. This means, pull a linux box and start learning it.

Don't talk about versions, it is the same subject over and over.

Which books exactly? This one? http://www.amazon.com/RHCSA-Linux-Ce...dp_ob_title_bk

Get it if you don't have it.

Nothing is tough if you know what you are doing.
Forget the exams. Get a computer. Install CentOS. Practice each and every line from the book link I gave. Then when you don't feel frightened anymore, give the exams.

No offense, but if you take these words lightly, you might actually fail.

+1 on the Michael Jang book recommendation (post #4). It includes some sample questions so you can assess your readiness for the exam. I will give the benefit of the doubt that you actually understand the topic and are just being modest about your skills/preparation. Good luck! :)

Moved: This thread is more suitable in Linux - Certification and has been moved accordingly to help your thread/question get the exposure it deserves.

I agree with the given advices. Your intention to crack the exam is the greatest harm you can do to yourself. Do you want to be a IT professional? Begin to act in a professional manner.

It is a possibility that there is a language barrier? :) Translating from Native lang to English?

You made a point! My apologies.

If you have the money available, I strongly recommend that you take the Red Hat courses associated with the RHCE. To determine which courses are appropriate, "pre-assessment" questions are available on Red Hat course pages.

TheIndependentAquarius 12-17-2011 07:03 PM

tbibhuti,

I do NOT think you should go for the Red Hat's official
training courses until and unless you are finished with
that book. It will be difficult for you to catch up with
their pace if you have zero knowledge of Linux.

BTW, you clicked the "helpful" button on my above post,
and that's fine. But, WRITING a new post for acknowledgment
of those who helped is considered "good manners".

mike_rhce 12-18-2011 12:08 PM

To clarify, I think there are Red Hat courses suitable for users who are new to Linux, such as

https://www.redhat.com/elearning/rh0...ntials_series/
and possibly

https://www.redhat.com/courses/rh124...inistration_1/

Nevertheless, I can't fault anyone who suggests that they read my book first :)

TheIndependentAquarius 12-18-2011 10:13 PM

My point was that any type of course won't be of
any use unless and until the teacher's aim is to
make sure that the child understands what he
is doing, rather than finish up the course anyhow.

I can't speak for other countries but the place
where I live, the quality of these training centers
is usually not up to the mark. This is the reason
that the many people having the RHCE certificates
don't even know how to configure internet on their
Linux machines.

Also, the regulars on LQ know that these kind of
people do exist that too in large numbers. Offering
advice about these training courses without knowing
the OP's location might be misleading for the OP.

Good information, thank you. It does fill in some "blanks" with respect to what I've heard.
