Congratulations. But what do you honestly think of a certification that you got 100% in? Do you not think it means it was too simplistic?

Congrats!

Looks like you are also Sun Solaris certified. Did your experience with Unix help you on the test?

I only ask because I have experience with Solaris too

With my miserable hat on yet again, when i did my courses there were a number of Solaris vets, most of them failed even the RHCT... It's different enough to be a partial hinderance to many I'd say.

I think that's pretty impressive. I scored in the low 90s on both components, and I know several other folks who did as well. 100% is quite an accomplishment, IMO.

Was that your first time sitting for the exam?

yes, it did. I did well as I had fair good hands on commands. Rest was practice and more practice

No, Chris I dont think we can say it simplistic, because see I was practicing for around 4-5 hours daily on various servers and stuff. I guess that helped me.

Pattern was same as earlier exams.

Just curious

I've been studying from Jangs book; and doing the Labs (2 hours a day...6 days a week).

That and the fact that I am a sysadmin (RHEL/Solaris) should help me....

1 week and 6 days left!!! Man I'm nervous!

Hopefully I do well...

I don't necessarily agree that the exam wasn't hard (but I won't rehash that whole conversation again). However, I do wholeheartedly agree that relaxing will do you lots of good. Keep calm and let all that studying and practicing work in your favor. Anxiety often brings out the worst in us.

Good luck!
