Cert training Material


Hello,

I would like to try and get some linux certifications LPIC/Linux+

I've started reading material from tuxcademy.org. I guess this site is dead.

Although not entirely perfect, I like the material and I'm reading the suggested for the Linux Essentials exam

but it is two years old. Is there any other source for free study material that's aimed at the exams, and if

not, where can I find the most reasonable/effective material for the cheapest cost? I'm not interested

in classes only reading/exercise material.

Thanks

I would recommend starting with the Red Hat Certified System Administrator (RHCSA) for a Linux certification.

https://www.redhat.com/en/services/certification/rhcsa

I would also recommend Linux Academy for the training:

www.linuxacademy.com


(Note, I don't work for Red Hat or Linux Academy, just trying to give others direction).

This site does list Red-Hat as popular, but it's the most expensive (I believe) and also, of course, specific to Red Hat.

I would personally prefer non-distro specific certifications. Hence, Linux+/LPIC

www.linuxacademy.com offers classes I know but I'll check if they offer only study material or not from a quick glance, it doesn't appear so. I see only courses.


Also, wanted to ask again..anyone know what happened to tuxcademy.org?

Thanks

I would recommend my own book, the Pearson CompTIA Linux+/LPIC-1 Cert Guide, it's pretty good, if I do say so myself.

I have had a lot of students and readers tell me they like how it puts things, and it basically is like having a boot camp on the topic with myself and Sean.
