LPI exam changed ?


Hi Guys, I am a LPI 1 certificated and my certificate will expire in 2017 so I am preparing to get LPI 2. I saw 4 exams

117-201
117-202

and

201-400
202-400

What are the differences between them ? Should I take the 117 one ? Or the 400 one ?

I have emailed LPI team and I got no answer so far. I have google for it and I found so many mixed answers that cannot convince me. So here I am asking for your help.

Thanks

Interesting..since you said here:
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...ml#post5494808

..that you had stopped working with IT for years...but you have an up-to-date 'certificate', that won't expire until next year?

LPI's website has details about what those tests cover. Again, a small search on your part would let you read about those exams, and let you determine the differences between them:
117-201 - https://www.lpi.org/study-resources/...am-objectives/
117-202 - https://www.lpi.org/study-resources/...am-objectives/
201-400 and 202-400 - https://wiki.lpi.org/wiki/LPIC-2_Objectives_V4

All of those have this as a prerequisite:
https://www.lpi.org/study-resources/...am-objectives/

...which indicates that you need to be able to WRITE A BASH SCRIPT...which you said you couldn't do in your other thread. So before moving on, you may want to refresh your skills.

Thank You.

So 201-400 and 202-400 is just a new version of 117-201 and 117-202 ? That's what I am trying to understand, and the links doesn't tell me that.

And FYI, I got my LPI-1 on 2011 I guess.

Anyway thanks

..and if you read both of the descriptions, you can figure out what the differences are.

Great. So again, you're trying to get more 'certifications', when you posted not long ago about not being able to do something, that was required on a 'certification' you say you already have? Before you get more 'certifications', it would probably be best to get your skills up to par first.

Hi TBOne,

Yes I need to get my skills up to date, I am trying really hard. Thanks for your help. Let's not argue anymore.

Btw, I wasn't able to write that script, a friend of mine did it for me.

And, if a person have a LPI 1 certification, it doesn't mean he/she already know everything. That's why there are forums like that. I only post after google and try many times. It's good to have second opinion in the forum, please don't doubt of that.

Anyway, Thanks for your help

No, what that certification SHOULD mean, is that the person who has it, has the skills it calls for. The one you said you had, indicates that you should KNOW HOW TO WRITE SCRIPTS....and you don't, since you essentially asked us to write one for you, then had a friend write it for you.

Before you get more 'certifications', your skills need to reflect the one you already have.

I do, because of your behavior in your other threads, under your OTHER user id, not this one, that the LQ rules ask you NOT create specifically.
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...lp-4175571316/
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...on-4175534977/
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...em-4175513875/
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...lp-4175502624/
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...er-4175467760/

You say you only post "after google and try many times"...yet ask what LDAP is, ask people to give you links to websites and tutorials, how to monitor a folder, etc. ALL things that a simple search could have led you to.

Good luck with your 'certifications'.
