I need advice on taking Comptia Linux+ tests

I need to take Comptia Linux+ tests: LX0-101 and LX0-102
and need some advice about the study materials to use, the distros, and possibly some test prep.

Thank you

I highly recommend you search these forums, and look at the very bottom of this page for the section called "Similar Threads." You will see quite a few links about this same topic....

Thanks Josh

I did some reading before posting and saw many as you mentioned but they weren't quite recent.
Thanks again.

Welcome to LQ!

Most programs do not cycle that fast. So if the post(s) are with 6 months to a year then the information will be relative or lead to information that is current.

As stated by'corp769', you can do a LQ Search with good keywords and get loads of help.

Just giving you from my experince, i have passed these tests monts ago.
You have to remember syntax and parameters of commands, it isn't contain a lot of theory but spcific commands. So you have to practice it a lot.

Try the examcollection site

Use the lp1 and lp2 test stuff as its the same test
as the lx01 and lx02

I passed the test using the study material and
reading some books.

In my humble opinion, the study materials for these exams are a very valuable resource ...

... and the exams, themselves, are not!

Testing companies go to their own internal staff as well as to knowledgeable people from the outside world to put together a course-of-study that will determine both the content of the test (which they sell ...) and the far-more-lucrative study materials, which they also sell. The course of study is designed to be representative of what actual people, actually on the job from day to day, will encounter, and what they will need to know. At the end of the day, whether you buy a pretty piece of paper to hang after your name or not, these are things that you need to know. Exam study guides are a very concentrated and targeted source of information to that end.

But don't study those things in the same way that you learned to study things at school. When you "pass the test," it's not over. "Passing the test," or even taking it, is really not the point. "Getting a diploma," also, is not. Actually learning the material and acquiring the skill is the only real goal you have. (You can certainly get a piece of paper and know nothing ... they will sell it to you anyway.) Unlike school ... you actually have to come away from the experience having learned something.

I have several (somewhat older, now) exam-prep guides in my library and I do refer to them from time to time. You will find not only descriptions of a procedure (which may of course have become outdated), but of the theory behind it (which of course will not). In the real world, you have to have a sometimes-intuitive grasp of why something is happening in order to conclude what must be done about it.
