Thanks for the update zgambitx.

So it's basically the same except that you don't have to install the system from scratch in part 2. I guess that eliminates knowing how to install kickstart from the prep guide.

We shall see. Some people (who perhaps should have not signed up for the class) left early, basically quit during the first hour of the exam. Good luck to anyone studying to obtain the test, I suggest you download the RHEL installation and implementation guide and concentrate on the requirements for the RHCE from the redhat website and study and study and practice and practice. Oh and yes you can still obtain the RHCT and not the RHCE depending on your scores. Good luck.
Did you pass? I have to take the test May 15th.. I have a few questions if you don't mind..

Did you have to install the OS?
Any questions on DNS servers?

All test takers signed an NDA and cannot disclose what is specifically on the test.

I did pass, RHCT: 93%, RHCE: 100% but I cannot disclose any information about the exam or I risk getting my certificate revoked plus more. I can only suggest that you download the RHEL install guide (900+) pages and use that in combination with what is required within the redhat.com's prep guide for the RHCE. If you study and practice non stop for a week I am almost sure you will pass too.

Ah yes, the Deploy Guide. It's the easiest way to get your hands on the "good stuff" or you can buy the guide posted above me, I haven't read it but if it worked for him then it would work for others as well.

i have researched this question and could not find it online.
what is the rpm command argument equivalent to yum (which installs dependencies along with the actual package) I usually use apt but i'm guessing this will not be available on the test.

I just took the new RHCE today.. It was really hard, but I passed. I think everyone else in the class failed though. Good luck to everyone

kron0s, Does Michael Jang book is still good enough to pass the RHCE?


What study guides or labs do you recommend for the test?

the RH300 Class Book is probably the best review for the test, since it covers exactly what you need to know. Jang's book goes over way too much stuff you don't need.

FWIW...

Jang's Book + Centos + VMWare + LOTS of Hours = RHCE

^ That's what worked for me.

I didn't take the class (just the test), and I passed. It's possible to pass the test without the class (just look at me ) but I would have taken it if I was able to afford it!
