Have you done any of the revision or practice? And I assume you actually mean that you will be taking the RHCE exam in August?

If you have no knowledge at all of the course, August may be a bit too soon to be taking it - read up on the info here: http://www.redhat.com/certification/rhce/ to find out about the various modeules and exams.

I agree with the previous posting that two weeks is certainly not enough if you ask now where to start! If the exam can not be done later, or if you really need it for your job, then you should get yourself a spare PC and install RHEL or CentOS on it. Then start using it for quite everything ranging from bash scripting to web serving, logging in via SSH, running and accessing ftp, setting up a bind server, making backups etc, plus and all kind of weird things that effectively can break the system - you have to do this the whole day for the next two weeks if you want to come to speed on these issues. Be prepared for a lot of re-installs. This will be a crash course!

From what I have seen from other members here, the books are very very useful to you when preparing and taking the tests but actual hands on knowledge is invaluable. The test is designed, I believe, to give "real world" examples so if you don't have enough knowledge you may not pass. So a mix of the books and a home test lab (or using it at work) is what you need.
