path to RHCE


can anyone suggest books that would be necessary to read if you wanted to do it on your own instead of paying 6-10grand on a course. i currently have the linux bible 2011 and sams teach yourself linux in 24 hours. i looked on amazon and if you search RHCE, you only get study guides centered around the exam not to get you to the point of being ready for it. Any advice would be much appreciated.

it's MUCH more important to just plain use Linux than to study a book. If you want a book, then Michael Jang's latest edition is the bible, but you need to KNOW stuff, not just read stuff.

that's probably enough tbh. Look at the syllabus for the RHCE and if you think you can achieve the objectives described, job done.

Take the advice in post #2.
Also, either pay for and use RHEL6, or get the free rebuild Centos 6.
