Have a look at Scientific Linux, it's the first clone of RHEL6 if I'm not mistaking. Even CentOS which is normally the alternative for RHEL doesn't have version 6 yet. One of our lead developers installed it on my advice yesterday and it's 'guay' (means very nice) as he states.
It is not my intent to be rude, but aren't such exams supposed to certify that you have certain skills and a certain experience? Asking questions such as those asked by the OP would seem to indicate that both these things are currently lacking. I can kind of understand but at the same time I can't help but think the approach is something along the lines of "I'm studying for an exam which will ceritfy that I have skills which I currently do not possess".
Perhaps I find it odd because OP desires a RHEL clone in order to pass an exam, rather than use it to gain skills which such an exam is supposed to ceritfy.
for the EXAM BUY a license for RHEL6 that IS A MUST !!!!!!
if you intend to tell people that you passed that exam and DO HAVE THE "RED HAT ENTERPRISE 6 " experience then YOU must actually Have that EXPERIENCE on THAT Operating System that IS a legal issue and might make "nul and void" your contract .
A desktop licence is $49 (or whatever that is in your local currency) or the cheapest server subscription is $249. To properly set up a lab, you'd be looking at one server and 2 desktops at a minimum, so $347 or thereabouts. Not totally outside many people's price range but it can be a little impractical for many. For the purposes of understanding the set up and passing the exam, Scientific or Centos shouldn't be a huge problem, they are rebadged and non-proprietary RHEL clones after all.
