Anxiety before an exam is normal.

Anyway, I'll post my results!

I will do my test on 23th March..
Started preparing since jan 2009.
Read mike jang's book, watched some CBT RHEL5 videos, did the labs on RH300 course(2007), playing with rhce troubleshoot rpm ...
And now i started by redoing all the labs and set up services with time in mind.

Hope i pass!..
good luck!

Can't really say much (since I signed NDA); but I can say that time is not your friend

All I can say is that Jang's book gives you everything you need to pass...

My advice:

1) Get Jang's Book and study it COVER TO COVER. And after you've done that...study it COVER TO COVER *again*. After that...yup...you guessed it...STUDY IT COVER TO COVER!!! Basically eat, sleep, breathe, and LIVE that book.

2) Along with Jang's book...use the Red Hat documentation (deployment guide...installation guide...etc.)

3) Don't use any other Linux distro...I know some of you guys like Ubuntu or Debian (don't worry I don't hold that against you ). On my laptop I had fedora (with a CentOS VM) and on my desktop I had CentOS...so basically I abandoned other Linux distros for the time being...

That's all I did for about 6 months straight...that along with the fact that I have 2 years of Linux/Unix Administration experence; that helped me out a lot

Congrats, I told you you'd ace it, and clearly going by how much you passed by you did not need to study nearly as hard as you did..
