Question LPIC-1 : Time reqd for prep to give 101/102 && Sample Exams[new LPI objectives]


Hi ,

I am a newbie but have been working on Red Hat for a few months now and am familiar with working with bash shell,awk,perl and regular expressions . I am plannin to give my LPIC-1 via self-study as I cant shell out the money for online training .

I have 3 questions for now,

1) How much time would a beginner need to prepare for LPIC-1 provided I plan to read LPI in a nutshell by o'reilly and LPI certification guide by Sybex and of course practice !!! anymore recommendations appreciated

2) Is there a preference for the distro you work on ? I currently have access to Red hat and Suse linux

3)Does anybody know where can I find free sample question papers covering new LPI objectives introduced in 2009.

Thanks

Emma

Certification such as the LPIC-1 can take up to six months to compleete, most of the cerifacation are offered by either RedHat, Novel or CompTIA.

I'm going to be honest with you, unless you have a lot (and I mean lots...) of time to spend, I wouldn't reccommend doing the LPIC right now.

That being said:
1) So long as you know the principles in there already and are using those books to fill in the blanks in your knowledge, then great; learning from them is a bit iffy, doing the qualification is a bit hit or miss really

2) I seem to remember the exams concentrating on .deb and .rpm; but outside of that, just know your system inside out

3) That, I can't help with

The ComPTia Linux Plus Might be a better bet for you if you have limited time. This test deals with alot of the basesic and like the RHCE it also delas lagerly with redhat.
