i'm planning to take rhce test sometime in the future. i'm not day to day admin in linux but i've some background and installation knowledge in redhat.
i've bought the rhce study guide by michael jang and following labs now...
i also got manual from redhat for rhel4. do you think this manual will help?
besides, going to rhce class is there alternative to do self study and hands on that i can buy somewhere......
as the class seems too expensive and my company isnot wiling to pay for it as i'm trying to add another cert in my list.
thanks for any suggestions.
ultimately you can never replace just plain knowing the stuff in the first place, so go study initscript, apache, squid, bash, pam etc... and you'll do fine. the exam is all about doing, not knowing as such. as long as you get the results it doesn't matter how you get there.
thanks Chris. yes i'm just thinking to grasp knowledge from their manual.
also, regarding hands on i'm thinking to follow jang's rhce study guide all the lab portions.
i didn't see other materials out there besides these. how about your experience to share with me would be great. if i need any additionals materials or which to concentrate more would be really great to know.
I've read Jang's latest RHCE book, and am doing the labs now. What I like about his book is that he focuses on what you need to know to pass the exam. Unfortunately, Jang's book is written for Enterprise Linux 3. Is there a book or other reference that gives more information on what exam components are new for Enterprise Linux 4? I'd love to find something as thorough as Jang's book, but for Enterprise Linux 4.
Yes, the exam is based on RHEL 4 (see the description of exam 302 on Red Hat's website for more details), as is the fast track course. So, it appears that Jang's book is now out-of-date. I just wonder how much out of date?
generally there's little difference between rhel3 and rhel4 from the exm point of view. One thing though it the introduction of SELinux in RHEL4. I read the Jang books myself too, and they provided more than enough to get through RHCE for RHEL4
I have notice a few differences in commands (GUI based ) in RHEL3 and RHEL4. E.g. redhat-config-* is system-config-* in RHEL4. But I guess its better to know the commands that works from Terminal rather then from GUI.
