Question Lpi

Hi all. I plan on taking the LPI next week and was wondering if anyone might have an informative study sheet. I have the LPI Bible book and have gone through it with a fine-toothed comb, but I believe in being extremely thorough, not to mention thrifty seeing how the test is a bit pricey. If anyone has something like this, please let me know. I'm not looking for the questions AND answers, just the questions that might be asked on the test. The only place I've seen questions is on sites that require you pay a membership fee. Obviously, as a last resort, I'm willing to pay the fee, but would rather hold off until another less-expensive option presents itself. Thanks in advance for any and all help with this.

There are two test for your main LPI Cert, 117-101 and 117-102. Good study material I would recommend would be ExamForce Cram Master software and a book called " LINUX IN A NUTSHELL".

total test Points are 900, you must score 700 + to pass.

Good Luck

The LPI site FAQ has a slightly different take on the scoring. According to that, scores tend to fall between 200 and 800 with the average being 480 and a passing score being 500. The pass rate is about 64% (not sure how you get a passrate of 64% when the pass mark is above the average mark - unless lots of people do really badly to skew the average).

It also says that as of December 2003 there were only 780 people LPI2 certified.

There is a difference between Linux Certifications. LPI is a gereral certification while RedHat is specific. SUSE uses the LPI level 1 and adds a SUSE test (LPI 103) to certify people for the SUSE Certified Linux Professional and LPI 2 + 203 to certify people for the SUSE Certified Linux Expert. They have one further cert (SUSE Certified Linux Master) which takes a face to face planning and execution test.

You have to start somewhere. It may as well be with LPI Level 1.

A wee little note to anyone who will be in London next Tuesday &/or Wednesday (20 & 21 April).

The Linux User & Developer Expo is on at the London Olympia and you can take the LPI 1 & 2 exams for 15. Yes, that's right, 15. The times are 1000 and 1400 on both days.

That will get you the first level of certification.

First register (if you haven't already) at to get your LPI id number, then go to to register for the event. Although it is very close to the day, tickets are still available or you can probably get them on the day itself.

I am seriously considering it.

Good luck
