Regarding The Book Comnion CD


Dear Mike,

I have bought the book recently and going through this. The problem is that the cd contains only sample test questions; while the book says it should have

--> Complete lab-based exam preparation, featuring:
. Two Full RHCSA practice exams
. Two full RHCE practice exams
. Lab-based chapter skill tests
. In-depth answer explanation for all labs

--> RHCSA and RHCE Glossary

http://www.flickr.com/photos/1194777...n/photostream/

If I am missing something, is it possible to post in the book website or similar places ?

Thanks

Dear Somiam,

From the screenshot you've posted, it appears that you're running the CD in Microsoft Windows. As this is a book based on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6, I did not test the CD in any Microsoft operating system. Please use Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 for this book. (Rebuild distributions such as CentOS 6 and Scientific Linux 6 are acceptable substitutes.)

From the screenshot, it looks like you're in the /tata/Exams subdirectory. Go up a level. You should find other subdirectories there.

edit: I should rephrase slightly -- as I haven't tested the CD in Microsoft Windows, I cannot (and will not) suggest what you might see on the CD using that operating system. I'm sorry to be so rigorous about this, but the use of Microsoft Windows is suggestive of a reader who doesn't intend to use other Linux tools covered in the book.

Question

Dear Mike,

Thanks a lot for answering my post.
I can understand your feelings. After writing a rigorous book on an os and now facing queries based on findings in other os is really painful to you.

Sorry, I don't mean to start any debate. Only my centos vm has no external connection and I found a very handy win 7 snipping tool to make the screenshot.

Believe me, there is no other sub directory up in the order. The only other subdir is eula for Tata McGrahill. I have checked it in linux system also and there is no other dir.

Screenshots...

Dear somiam,

Thank you for showing me what you see in Linux. As I understand it, the people who produce books for Tata are different from the people who produced the main book for McGraw-Hill in the US. As I have no contacts at Tata, it may be some time before I get an answer. I do not know if Tata has any sort of technical support. If they do, you may get a faster response that way.

FYI, the attachment shows what I see from the CD, mounted on the /media directory. Click on it for a magnified view. I've included what you should see in the subdirectories for Chapters 1, 2, and 3, as well as several other subdirectories. Let me know if you need a view of the other subdirectories.

Thanks,
Mike

Dear somiam,

I've just been told that you (or anyone else in India who has purchased a copy of the RHCSA/RHCE book 6th edition published by Tata) can contact this person for customer service: rekha_dhyani@mcgraw-hill.com .

Host/VM Setup and New Book?

Good day sir, myself and 3 co-workers have formed a study group and we are using your book as our guide. We would like to know, if you know, what would be the right setup for working through the book. I mean in terms of Host Configuration (I'm assuming Virtual Host; it is working out fine this way) and basic VMs that should be setup on that host to successfully have a base system to setup and go from.

Next, new book? RHCSA/RHCE Red Hat Linux Certification Practice Exams with Virtual Machines - is there any way to get this ahead of the Oct 2012 publish date showing on Amazon.com. We would really like to each buy this and possibly have you autograph even

Thanks for your hard work.

Thanks for your purchase, Mr. Hillsman.

Do let me know here if/when you do have questions. I'll do my best to answer them as time allows.

As for the upcoming book, ref http://www.amazon.com/RHCSA-Certific...dp/007180160X/ , I haven't finished writing it yet. Our current plan is to include compressed KVM-based VMs on a DVD.

Thanks so much for your prompt response, myself and the others were wondering if you would reply and we appreciate you doing so. Hurry up with that book so you can make some more money

Thanks again for your reply and we hope the best of luck. Unfortunately by the time your new book comes out we would have already accomplished obtaining our RHCE certifications, but I for one will definitely give it a go as you can never really have too much practice and I believe a book full of labs would be a great resource and reference.

Just checked the drop down for 'mike_rhce' and I did get the email form. Do you have noscript or adblock restrictions for your browser?
