Learn redhat ES on CentOS or Fedora?
Other than genuine redhat enterprise edition, what is the best distro for training for the rhce? CentOS? Fedora? Something else?

Are there some substantial facilities in Redhat ES, that don't exist elsewhere?

Am I correct in assuming that the rhce exam is primarily aimed at redhat ES?

go with centos, it is closer than fedora in most areas. the only thing that's not really there are thigns like the up2date channels and such. wouldn't worry about that though. on the other side centos uses yum while redhat doesn't.

Chris is right, furthermore, up2date is not listed as a requirement in the Red Hat Exam Prep guide (or associated public course outlines), so I would not be concerned about the difference between a rebuild like CentOS (or WhiteBox Linux) and RHEL ES.

CentOS Of course
I would like to vote for CentOS, as it is the recompiled version of RHEL and you will have better hands-on on CentOS rather then Fedora. And yes ES is the prefered distrubution of exam and as well as the large scale deployments.
