442 is the only other exam I would really value, as the others are largely sale pitches rather than real system knowledge.

I feel the same way. It's one of those classes that I wish I could take a second time, I feel like I'd understand it a lot better seeing it a second time.

Sorry didn't mean to hijack your thread, I can start a new one to keep it on topic if you wish. Being that you have taken EX442 and EX333, would you say that 442 was the harder of the two?

Fully agree with you, after the class I went out and got some additional books that delve into the inner workings of the 2.6 kernel because it peaked my interest.

I've not done 442 yet. Next on the list hopefully.

For those who has taken the exam, how difficult is EX333 compared to the RHCE for example?

Any insight will be well appreciated.

Thanks

Certainly harder, mainly by sheer volume of work required. I thought it was a worthy exam for the level they try to pitch it at.

Hi,
Is there any official Redhat books for EX429? Currently I am going through the documentation of fedora on SELinux.

Not that I've ever seen. Not the demand for a formal study guide, just existing generic reference texts. And the course material itself of course.
