Hi Mike, Any idea when the book will be available? taking the exam in February ordered your book back in June it was due in November then it got delayed to December and I have just received an email that my order was canceled and they are unable to supply the book.

I have the V6 of the book and was hoping to get my hands on V7 some time before my exam.

TIA

Hi Mike,

a year ago, 13th december 2014 I posted a question asking you when your new book would be available. A year later it still isn't there, a little dissapointing.
Could you enlighten us with a date of publication ?

Should I move on and go for the Sander van Vugt version ? Anyone thoughts about this ?

To anyone still looking for this:

FYI -- The 7th edition is up for Pre-Sale on Amazon (US) now and Barnes and Noble has it slated for release early next month.

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0071841962

Enjoy!

RHEL 7 came out in June 2014, over 1.5 years ago. The author has really lost a chance here since others have come out with books already. The other RHEL book the author is working on has a ship date on Amazon of Sept 2016. That's really incredible. Most authors come out with books on beta versions of software. We're already on the third iteration of RHEL 7.

There doesn't seem to be any urgency.

Understood and agreed on all points. I just like the delivery so held out... Looking at updating my servers to 7.x in a month or two so this worked out for me.

Thumbs down

Wow, been waiting for this book for a year! Last time I was pissed when they moved it to Feb 5th from Novermber. I log on today and it says April 15th for the study guide and September 22 for the Practice Exam book. This is beyond ridiculous, especially since on this one he has another writer helping... Maybe it will be out by the time RHEL 8 comes out... Ill spend my money on someone else. Done with this waiting game Jang. Ghori it is.

Do you need help Michael ?

Michael,

This is heart breaking. I remember when I was getting my RHCE on 5 in the classes offered by Redhat they were making reference to your excellent book. People looking to re-certify would naturally look to your book. 1.5 years past the release of RHEL 7 is just too long. I keep seeing the release dates for the book being pushed back and back and back. If you need help of some kind I can only imagine the linux community would be there for you.

I hope whatever challenges you're facing are overcome soon.

The book is finally out: http://www.amazon.com/RHCSA-Linux-Ce.../dp/0071841962

I'll probably still end up buying it even though it took so long to come out.

Got mine

As disappointed as I was in waiting for this book, I have to say I'm pretty excited that I just received my copy today. So far it looks like the wait was well worth it.

Along the same lines and in the same (cautious, but happy) spirit of the last post (pertaining to the RHCSA portion of the 'RHCSA/RHCE Red Hat Linux Certification Study Guide (Exams EX200 & EX300)') please note the following (shorter list of) items encountered in 'RHCSA/RHCE Red Hat Linux Certification Practice Exams with Virtual Machines (Exams EX200 & EX300)'; items which are more like questions/suggestions are pre-pended with a '?' character & stylistic issues are similarly demarcated...

p2: "...from other Practice Exams book in the ..." -> "...books in the..."
p5: "...help manage their enterprises of Linux systems..." -> "...Linux systems in their enterprise..." OR "...manage their enterprises (of Linux systems)..."
//p6: "The topics in the Red Hat preparation courses in a few areas go beyond those..."
(p14 "...of that baseline system that can be..." OR ("...a baseline..." OR "...system - mentioned earlier - that...")
p22: "If you're installing RHEL6 in most VMs..." -> "...RHEL6, in most..."
[p25: "Here's how it looks..."]
? p41/45 Network interfaces (per 26/27 & 32) cannot access packages (e.g. FTP) w/o masquerading; as network configuration occurs later (Ch. 3?) create/configure different adapter...?
p58: (Lab 3) Chapter 1, Figure 1-3 -> Figure 1-2
? p58/59: (Lab 3) boot.iso not included with RHEL6 (6.6) - alternate instructions?
p69: "As the Red Hat exams tests your ability -> ("...exams test..." OR "...(collection of) Red Hat...")
p69: "...just configuration tools." -> "...just (use of) configuration tools." OR "...tools use."
? p76: (Lab 7) "...disable IP forwarding." -> 'Edit'->'Connection Details'->'Virtual Networks' & 'Stop Network' "default"? (or create substitute network?)
? p77: "List and identify SELinux file and process context." -> "...contexts."
p87: "just" v/s "exclusively"
Ch4 (Lab 5) "(3) Run the following command to give a password to that user with the 'passwd testuser' command. Set the password to : 'rhprof'" -> "Run the 'passwd testuser' command to give..."
? p91/92: As 'nmap localhost' & 'nmap <localhost_non127_IP>' from the same host yield different outputs the question of needing to know more about loopback & tools for RHCSA certification seems to arise; Lab 4 elucidates quite a bit but tool output won't exactly match the examples (further explanation warranted?)
p106: System recommendation for lab exercises may reduce discrepancy (e.g. 'blackhat' does not have 'abrt*' services - but no further discrepancies)
p107: Use of 'root=/dev/vda2' does not result in successfully booting system
p130: "All you need is a file named file.repo in the '4/etc/yum.repos.d' directory." -> '/etc/yum.repos.d'
? p136: "If successful..." (Nothing in 'yum update' output indicates success; other means, e.g. 'yum clean all; yum update', might be more revealing...?)
p139: "One implicit part of this objective is the way..." -> "...knowing the way...." OR "...learning the way..."
p160: Add 'init 2' condition? (Use of KVM seems to cause... complexity... with the 'vncserver' command)

Also, one additional matter concerns whether Kickstart requires a port/set of ports to be opened; use of both books ('Study Guide' & 'Practice Exams') & transition between them is otherwise O.K. (i.e. following the instructions sequentially is without issue)...

Phew.... it took a while, then I was in the middle of some migrations at work...but I finally got around to cracking open the book and I have to say, "well done." Very clear, concise, excellent tips and all around well worth the wait. I would recommend this book for any entry level systems person, anyone looking forward to their certifications and anyone who just wants to review / update their skill sets for 7.
