Hi and welcome to LQ.

Understand all the concepts, how they work and practice as many times as you can on a networked environment or use virtual environment in your system .
Then only you can pass the exam because this is a pure practical exam, how much you have understood rather than how much you have remembered.

You prepare by learning Linux. From there, you'll know what you need for the test. And if you bothered to do ANY searching on here or Google for your question, you'd know that we can't tell you "how the exam look like".

Please, do everyone a favor...unless you KNOW Linux and have experience, don't just take an exam to get a certification you're not qualified for.

This is the same question many university students ask professors. "What is the best way to prepare for the examination?" Perhaps study?
For any examination, if one needs to know the format and what questions will asked in advance, one is not ready to take the examination.

There are a couple of books I would recommend:

1. RHCE Redhat Certified Engineer's Study Guide by Michael Jang.
2. Red hat linux Fedora Unleashed

Take time you need to get familiar with Linux OS. It helps in setting up your own lab at home. You can setup a simple lab at home with two PCs and a hub. One of the PC should be dedicated to RHEL and other can be with dual boot RHEL and Windows.
After that you can experiment with setting up the server and client enviroment. Once you have become proficient in the installation of the OS, move on to break and fix scenarios. Spend atleast one or two hours working on it.

Why? One studies and prepares for a standard exam like RHCE precisely to know more about Linux and get qualified. While I agree that getting a certificate doesn't mean you "know linux" - whatever that phrase may mean to anyone - it certainly gives the bearer of the certificate a license to begin practice in "using linux". Also, this was posted in the noob's forum and seems entirely appropriate here.

One more thing to the OP. Consider joining a formal course run by an authorised training centre or at least try and get the authorised training material - if any.

What do they know of linux who only linux know?

OK

While I understand and (in theory) agree with what you're saying, in practice, I disagree. There are FAR too many people with 'certifications', who only do the bare minimum to pass a test and get a certificate. It's painfully obvious they don't know much about what they're doing, when you ask them to do anything. One 'certified' person that we got from an outsourcing company, spent TWO DAYS trying to figure out how to define a DHCP address range, and hard-code two addresses.

The test may let you 'learn', but you can learn WITHOUT taking a test, too. Getting a certification doesn't give you ANY license to begin using Linux...it gives you a certification. ANYONE can get Linux, sit down, and read a HUGE set of documentation that's available to them, and learn.

I would agree with that. Joining a formal class and getting the ability to get feedback from the instructor is a good thing. But don't just take the class to get a certification. Take it to LEARN, and know that it's just the very, very beginning.

Wrong.
The purpose of any examination is to measure the testee's level of knowledge and/or ability. An examination is taken, or should be taken, after one has learned. Learning specifically to pass an examination is a recipe for failure.
If someone, as in the case of the OP, asks what the exam looks like and how one should prepare for it, that person is not ready to take the examination.
Learn more, then think about the examination.
