New to Linux


Looking at Linux as a whole, is there such area that needs more concentration in terms of preparing for the certification exams?

Hi lamacinco,

Welcome to LQ!

For certs there are study guides. Linux is so big that trying to pass a cert exam by learning all of linux won't work.

See this: https://www.linux.com/learn/tips-how...ification-exam

I would agree with AwesomeMachine, with this comment: You might want to look a little more closely at the server/network stuff than the desktop stuff.

If you have the resources, you can set up several VMs (they can be on different host machines if you use bridged network adapters) and use them for your practice network. If you are willing to pend a few bucks, you can find some excellent books about prepping for certification.

Welcome to LQ.

Hi and welcome to LQ.

It kind of depends on the certification you are seeking. Normally they give you a syllabus. So, what certificate are you looking for?

For example you can take a look at:

https://training.linuxfoundation.org/certification/lfce
https://training.linuxfoundation.org/certification/lfcs
https://www.redhat.com/en/services/certification/rhce
