Yes...sadly my employer doesn't pay for _any_ training

That coupled with the fact that the fast track is $3,000+

I don't think that it's "worth" it (if you're paying for it yourself...like acid put it...if your employer is paying for it...take it!).

So even if I have to take it twice (I don't think I will...but you never know ) That is _still_ cheaper than taking the "fast track"

Just an update...

I did both practice tests, the installation and configuration part, at the end of Jang's book (both RHCT/RHCE portions). It took me about 3 hours each. I think I did ok....I rebooted a couple of times and everything seemed to work (then again...I'm not sure what Red Hat is looking for). So all in all I think that I did pretty good...nothing on there really "scared" me...hopefully doing these labs will help me...

For the troubleshooting part I am using trouble-maker.

Hi custangro / people,

I am also giving RHCE this month, date is yet to be finalized, it would be 30th or 31st. I think I have prepared well.
Wish me luck.

But still, to be more confident, I was just wondering are there, any practice papers available, I mean any exam simulator or something.

Custangro, what is this Jang book, does it contains any practice questions for RHCT/RHCE.
And, trouble-maker http://trouble-maker.sourceforge.net/ is for RHEL3.

Any other similar tool ?

Pls help guys.

Regards,
VIKAS

What is Jang's book????

It's only the best study guide I've ever had!!!

I refer to it as the Bible...
http://www.amazon.com/Certified-Engi.../dp/0072264543

I used the manuals too...
http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/enterprise/

I'm taking my test Feb 13th...so wish me luck!!!!

Yes...I am VERY nervous...but you never know how you will do until you do it. :-)

However it would be a shame that I spent $800 dollars and don't get anything...hopefully I'll get the RHCT...but don't get me wrong....I'm aiming for the RHCE...

Ok...back to studying

Talking Mission Accomplished !!

Hi Custangro / ppl,

I did well in RHCE, got 100% in both RHCT and RHCE.

My experience was pretty good, and the paper also was fine.
