Nothing is hard if you study. CompTIA is beta testing the new 2004 cert now. I took the “old” test, and there was many A+ questions, and general Linux questions. 60/40 easy/difficult. Know your stuff....

I was going to do the Linux+ Beta test but my book that i was going to use for review and study hasn't shown up yet. Does anyone have any suggestions as to resources i can use. I haven't played with Linux much in the last 6 months so i am a bit rusty and wanted the book as a refresher before i took the exam.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated as i am very eager to get back into it.

Cheers

I took the Linux+ Cert and passed in October 2002.

I didn't think it was that hard. I would say on a scale of 1-10 it was about a 4 on hardness.

Just gotta know what you're doing.

I personally think it was a little redhat centric.

It was a book for the old exam. It was the Sybex Linux+ book. As i said it was only for a refresher and i found a couple of new things in it. A couple of new concepts or old concepts explained as well. Wasn't the best book i've ever read.

It obviously didn't have everything on the new exam.

Yeah I have that book. I guess after the beta is over they will get new study material. The old exam material lacks in Security and Documetation.
