Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Today i attended RHCSA exam. i created swap partition without toggle the partition.
and mkswap /dev/sda11 and swapon /dev/sda11
it worked , fstab edited. and even after reboot, it was ok. i can see in the outpout of swapon -s two partitions with newly added one i.e /dev/sda11 do you think it was ok or i am supposed to toggle the partition and set it to swap flag.
2) second question was searh a string say country in a file and copy all occurences in a new file? (this i was unable to do)
you answered a post before someone wrote it, and when someone did, they quoted you replying to them ...? my head hurts!
Whilst sternones comments aren't worded terribly tactfully, I do generally agree that the exams are far too simple for a professional qualification that wants to be respected. I got 97% on my RHCE with zero effort, and I originally hoped to scrape through. I put that down to easy questions, not my skill.

I have never put stock in a 'certification', for the same reason. Every exam like that I've taken, I've done with little or no prep work, and passed by a LARGE margin like you, acid_kewpie. Can't tell you how many outsourcing firms I've been contacted by, who boast that ALL of their people have 'certifications'...if they manage to get in the door, my interviewing process of their employees before they start work is, to put it mildly, intense. If they can't answer questions like the ones above, it's over before they start.
