Well, judging from the study-books that come out each year, I would predict that it is more-or-less like any big instructional-development project: most of it stays, chunks of it are revised, and new chunks are added to reflect new product features.

I'd strongly encourage you to step back from the concern of actually taking the exams (you're not in school anymore ...), and to buy-up past copies of the exam guides on the dollar-table at used book stores, as I routinely do. Browse the different versions and notice the differences. These are meant to be concentrations of pragmatic knowledge as perceived by some instructional designer and the phalanx of advisors who guide them. This changes over time. Notice the changes. And, notice what doesn't.

The stuff you're learning about is completely pragmatic. There's error-prone work to be done and these are the processes by which one does it (emphasizing the sponsoring vendor's software, but it could be something else). Therefore, be sure to get the "big picture," not just the "details" that might be the "correct" answer to a test-question. Your "I'm in school" instincts will not be of benefit to you now. In fact, they can throw you off.

If you aren't taking the exam soon, I'd hold off. I'm guessing that you'll see rhel7 geared testing in under 6 months.

So if you're ready to take the exam-awesome. If not, go download Fedora 20 or the rhel7 to and start learning how to practically manage rhel7.

I can't confirm a date, but I'd expect to see RHEL 7 classes and exams in circulation before end of summer.

Absolutely, yes. I believe they expire every 3 years.

Here's the re-cert policy on the RH site: http://www.redhat.com/training/certi...ification.html

If what I said is to be believed, then yes.

I think they usually allow for some crossover time where there is RHEL6 and RHEL7 testing concurrently, but I would assume they are going to be pretty agressive in pushing RHEL7.

You don't think RHEL6 changed very much from RHEL6 GA to RHEL6.5?

This isn't about "technology", this is about Red Hat's product. Red Hat's product changed substantially in that time. I'm not a huge fan of the testing practices, or the aggressive re-testing policy, either, but it's a condition of my employment, so it's one of those things I have to deal with.

If you hurry up and test for RHEL6, then you will be ready to certify for RHEL7 in 3 years...

I do not want to do any test , I am a user only , just want to get the certification and find a job .

redhat 6 is released at 2010 , that's good to guess the new release will be release soon.

I don't understand what you're saying, though...you don't want to do a test, but you want a certification?

The Release Candidate for RHEL7 was released at the beginning of April. The GA version should be out shortly.
