Congrats on your RHCE!

You can take a look here as the Red Hat certifications are listed hierarchically (with the certs requiring fewer prerequisites near the top). http://www.redhat.com/training/certifications/#tab2


Hope that helps...

You shouldn't base your career path on certifications, you should base your certifications on your career path.

You need to decide what it is you really like/love to do and focus on that. Once you know what you want to do you can follow a certification path to accomplish that goal.

This is one reason I do NOT give 'certifications' much weight at all. "Practice dumps 2 times a day", then you can 'clear' the exam?? No...a certification isn't about a passing grade, or taking practice tests until you pass. It's about proving you have actual KNOWLEDGE, and know how to think about a problem.

Be warned that if you depended on 'practice dumps' to pass a test, it will be VERY obvious to those you work with if you have the knowledge or not, VERY quickly. And if you're ever interviewed by someone like me, be ready to be placed in a lab, alone, with no phone/internet access, and given a list of tasks to complete that someone who is 'certified' should be able to do.

Ha ha it is NOT REAL TB0ne. If you are not believe you can try it "practice dumps 2 times a day" I think we will fail forever ..for the test..And by the way cert always is the first step. As a child before running they should take a small walk. Otherwise NO SHORTCUT ...
Thanks,

Oh? Then why did senthil4984 say that's what they did in post #6? Why is it that MANY others have repeated such 'advice'?

A 'cert' is NOT the first step. The first step is actually GETTING THE KNOWLEDGE....a certification is only proof that you know it. Taking certification tests from dumps, or just to take them for 'first step', is pointless. I have seen many, MANY people with 'certifications', who have NO IDEA what they're doing.

I am studying for the RHCE test but it is not easy as people said . at least for me.. If not they are so lucky to get it through "DUMPS" In addition you passed it with 210 score is pass if you passed it with 300 still pass NO DIFFERENCE you no what i am saying. In our life lucky is so important some times
Second people have cert at least is better than people don't know cert exist in that field for our life. For the next step this is for their job or job interview or smt like that we will know who they are. I want to emphasize that cert is first step because at least it equip for you basic knowledge about this field nothing more and less. After cert is different story. Everything need time and practice otherwise you will loose it asap you got it.

@kratos.william: I fully agree with TB0ne on this.

A certificate is about showing what experience and expertise one has learned over time and in the field. This is (repeatable) knowledge you get over time.

Like TB0ne I've come across to many people that have a RHCSA and/or RHCE certificate but have very limited knowledge. They all got those certificates by cramming for the test over a short period of time. And although they knew how to solve the problems presented to them at the time of the exam, most of them forgot most they learned. In my opinion they shouldn't have these certificates.

Don't get me wrong, it is very wise to go through all the material required even if you have years of experience. There are always gaps and things to learn.

Exactly the point: you can do practice dumps and pass, and be 'certified'...and not know ANYTHING you really need to know. Making the certification meaninless.

No..getting a certification is NOT the first step. If you want to learn, you LEARN: load Linux on a system, learn how to do the different things you need to do. Ask questions, learn how to troubleshoot. THAT is the first step.

A certification doesn't give you 'basic knowledge'...it is TESTING YOU ON THE KNOWLEDGE YOU HAVE. That is like saying "First you get a diploma from school, because it's better...then you can go and get the knowledge". It doesn't work that way. People who have 'certifications' like that are very easy to spot, and do NOT last long.

There are so many way to get your knowledge but for me it is very useful way is to studying for cert. I read a books do a lot of hand on labs and discuss a lot about topic in the cert book. Another thing is you will not gonna do something if you don't have real motivation. Studying good doing good job and get cert for us it is a interesting experiences right ? you get something new to know and get smthing extra to get a job not bad
Another thing i want to say cert is for first step because there are so many certs ? for example cisco : ccna is nothing compare with CCIE lab. I mean that knowledge is so much to learn then certs in general mean nothing if you don't use it for useful thing. But you cannot show up your ability to recruiter by only said that i am expert if you don't have any experiences ha ha. Will they hire you ? What is the first thing to build up your career if you are fresher ? new graduate ? For me cert is really good way to get a new thing

Right...which is why you demonstrate knowledge to the recruiter and to the company interviewing you, DURING THE INTERVIEW. You KNOW answers..things that aren't on a test. That's how. You are not showing your ability by saying "See, I have a certification!"...you're just saying you have one.

And if you think a 'certification' that has no real depth behind it is going to get you ANY FURTHER than anyone else, you're sadly mistaken. Getting your first job is always hard, whether you have a list of diplomas as long as your arm or not. You will struggle to get in the door, and will get a low-paying job...just like EVERYONE ELSE does. What you do from there is work hard, learn, and move up.
