Which RHCSA/RHCE book do you recommend?


First, let me say that I am not a "newbie". I've been working with Linux for roughly 5 or so years. Im currently a "Level II Infrastructure Engineer", on the Linux side.

So I never took college, or any classes, or certifications, everything ive learned has always been hands on. I feel like I should maybe add an "Education" section to my resume, lol. As much as I think that certifications and degrees are, I should atleast have SOMETHING that shows I took the initiative to further my career, rather than just learning everything on my own when im bored.

I feel fairly confident that I could pass the RHCE exam, but id like to brush up by reading a certification book, just to make sure I have all my bases covered.

So... which of the following would you recommend?
  1. http://www.amazon.com/RHCSA-Linux-Ce...&keywords=rhce
  2. http://www.amazon.com/Red-Certified-...&keywords=rhce

And also, would you say this is worth reading?
http://www.amazon.com/RHCSA-Certific...&keywords=rhce

Just thought id get some opinions from people who might be familiar with both. And if you have a different recommendation, please share!

As the RHCE test is performance based you have to have experience, and as you already have 5 years experience you won't need to buy a book, the resources are all available for free.

You need to meet the objectives here: http://www.redhat.com/training/cours.../examobjective

Read the Installation guide (you can probably stick to Intel arch), then other guides if required: https://access.redhat.com/site/docum...erprise_Linux/

Test your readiness here: http://www.redhat.com/resourcelibrar...lls-assessment

cheers

Not needed if you're building lab yourself.
