Who has taken the RHCE exam in recently.


Are they still doing REL3.0, or have they switched to REL4.0. What version of the book are they using?

Thanks.

RHEL3.0 is still what is being used. I haven't taken the test ($750 is too much for me..) but I have the book Red Hat Certified Engineer Linux Study Guide 4th Edition by Michael Jang. I thought it was very well written and I got a lot of information out of it. Amazon reviews seem to like it too.

Yep.. it's an all day hands on test. They give you a box with no OS installed and before time is up you need to have it installed and configured to what your exam says. The cool thing about this is that they don't care HOW you configure it, just that the end result works. The bad thing, of course, is $750 that you could lose if you fail.

The LPIC level 2 test has been compared to be on the same skill level as the RHCE. The only difference is that the RHCE is hands on and RedHat based.

I failed the first time, I was a bit pissed off because of the situation. Its in two parts, morning and afternoon test, the morning is crash fix, the afternoon was based on configuration. Its not a hard test if you can do all the labs that are in the training book, just have to be profecient.

RHEL 4 is going to be implemented in the RHCE any day now from what I understand. If you plan on taking it in the next month or two, expect to be tested on RHEL 4.

I just took (and PASSED!) the RHCT exam last week. I don't know about the RHCE level, but the RHCT was *ALL* RHEL 4

"Congratulations"

Thanks, it was ROUGH! 14 of us went in, and only 4 passed from what I've gathered so I feel VERY fortunate, as well as glad I spent all that time face down in my books.

RHCT Is actually part of the RHCE exam....dont waste your money taking the RHCT seperate

bottom line if you take the RHCE exam and fail you probably will have the requirements for the RHCT

Hello,
I am an RHCT. I took the RHCE exam but could not complete the compulsary trouble shooting questions (8 nos min ) to get selected for the RHCE. I could do only 5. I ran out of time.

Let me tell you. I think the trick in passing the RHCE is to keep the "time aspect" in focus always. I knew all the answers - if I got a little bit more time, I would have cleared the RHCE.

I made a small mistake in a question (which I rectified but then damn the time didn't wait for me.

Congratulations !
I think it is not your luck to pass the exam , it is your effort and time you spent on the preparation for the exam.

Some trick to save time while giving the exam is press Ctrl+Alt+F2 to get a shell prompt and Ctrl+Alt+F3 to see the installation log while the installation is in progress and then chroot /mnt/sysimage and start adding users , editing the config files for httpd,sendmail, squid (as soon as the packages are installed) whatever asked in the question paper.This will save valuable time.

Also always make a bakcup of the config files for safety if u screw up.

While installation don't forget to install the mailserver package as it is not installed by default. I lost precious time locating the package from the main server and installing it later.
Also configure Software RAID Pre installation when u create partitions otherwise u will waste lot of time doing it later in command line mode.
