Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

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'.
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!
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.
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".
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
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.
