What is up with Linux+?

Hey I was thinking of tryin to go for the Linux+ exam since it is supposedly the easies cert for linux. I am a casual linux user in the sense that I don't program or anything really. I just install and use the terminal a lot...but not for goofy things. And I definently don't use VI. I just wondered by anyone that has taken it if they think that a year or so of average linux usage (I've used seven or eight distros and installed them many times...and some were kinda not fun so I had to learn the command line a little) any good practice tests out there so I could judge myself? And for those of you that took it...if you didn't study did you need to, and if you did study did you over study?

Look at the Linux+ objectives. You will have to know the command-line. As far as vi, you will have to know how to open, edit and save a file (objective 4.16).

What do you mean by "average Linux usage"?

I only got two X questions out of the 94. The Sybex book I used didn't cover everything needed either; I distinctly remember one question on chattr I learned from a Transcender practice test that wasn't anywhere in the book. Also, unlike LPI where you get to choose between rpm and deb packages, be prepared to answer questions on both for Linux+, as well as compiling from source.

Maybe it was just luck of the draw, as I've heard they pull from a pool of several hundred, but the questions I got were not that easy. Good luck.

Where did you get that from? I have the "LPI certification in a Nutshell" book and it states that you need to know both....

The "any of you certified" thread a few lines below, page one, the post from comp12345. I've read it a couple other places too, but the tests were revised last year, so maybe that info no longer applies, though the O'Reilly book you're reading doesn't cover the new tests either. Couldn't hurt to know both package management systems anyway.
