Hi vinesh,

I'm not sure if your're allowed to ask help for exams on these forums. It's against the rules.

Feel free to post any specific linux questions though. Welcome to LQ.

Guide you how? Don't you think that question is very vague? We're not here to hold members hands. If you've got a specific question, ask it. If its a question on the actual RHCE exams, forget it... can't learn and pass the test without you doing your own studying.

to me it sounds like he's asking to be guided in the direction of the RHCE program, ie, what would one need to do to take the exam...

if thats not what he is asking, then ill ask it myself, im wondering the same...

I can give you some genral advice on how to prepare for a Red Hat exam, without breaking the rules:-

1. Make yourself a home network, with at least two host computers. This is essential for practicing networking issues.

2. Get yourself a Red Hat certified Engineer study guide..they are at any good bookshop. They cost about $100.

3. If you can afford it, go for a Red Hat training course at a accredited RH learning centre. Do this when you can do a lot of stuff reasonably configuring IP tables, or you can set up Samba with your eyes closed.

4. Go to the Red Hat website and download the skills set you must know to pass the exam. Practice these things until you are perfect.

5. There are two parts to the exam: a diagnostic/troubleshooting section, and an install/config section.

6. Try installing and configuring Linux in many modes: from CD [or DVD, via a LAN [you need to set up a Linux server for this]: via ftp, etc, etc.

7. On a linux test machine, break linux, and try to fix it. Or better yet, get a friend to break the machine so that Linux will not boot, or Apache fails to work, or whatever, then use your Linux knowledge and skills to recover from the problem.

8. Once you are ready [make sure you are confident you can do everything], sit the exam. Aim on getting at least an 80% result, or you may fail. The exam cost $1000 so don't sit it unless you are fairly sure you can do everything.

9. The diagnostic/troubleshooting exam usually comes first, so make sure that you are really good at it, or you won't even get a chance to do the second part of the exam. [The install and configuration phase.]

10 You will have little time to think in the exam. Nor will you have much time to look up the limited help availablein the rescue environment. It is a very hands-on exam, and every time it is different. Be confident with fixing problems in the console environment, and also the GUI environment.

11. practice, practice, practice.

12. it is impossible to "cram" for the RHCE exam. There are no short-cuts. This is a real hard exam, not like those "micky mouse" MCSE exams. The RHCE requires both good theory knowledge, but also, the ability to apply that knowledge in a practical way to solve problems. As an RHCE graduate, people will come to YOU to solve their problems. So practice and try to perfect every skill that Red Hat want to you to master for the exam.

I hope that helps.
Good luck.

Basically, the exam forces you to do a 24 hour job(approx.) in 6 hour time.

So, What do you think would be better? Usage of run level 3 or run level 5 to solve the exam.

Before taking the exam, you must sign an NDA. Thus, no one is really going to give you any specifics. If you haven't been a linux or unix admin for some time, you won't succeed.

No specifics, as people have said. There are really no short-cuts to this exam. Go to the Red Hat website, and study the list of skills you need to master. Real world experience helps. But as I said above, you will be asked to "fix" things are that are broken. Therefore you need a home network to practice on. I doubt that most employers will let you crash a server or a network, just to you can play at fixing it.

You don't have to do 24 hours work in 6 hours...that is a bit of exaggeration. You do have to work fast, and accurately though. Which means practice, practice, practice.....

You need to be able to use all run-levels...Do no more, nor no less than what the exam requires. Remember, this exam is supposed to emulate real world stuff, so it's no good if you fix something, but leave a huge security hole. Find out [experiment] the fastest way to do stuff...

If you do everything I have said in my first post, you should do fine.

There are RHCE study books available (Jang's is not bad). No one is going to be able to "guide" you through passing, and there is no easy, legal shortcut. If there were, everyone and his mother would be a RHCE and the cert would be worthless.

Bottom line: make sure you're able to perform everything identified in the RHCE Prep Guide. If you can't, you're probably going to waste time and $$. (In other words, keep studying and practicing.)

Let me inform you now the new pattern has come.
Earlier there was RHCE exam but now you need to clear RHCSA and RHCE both to pass RHCE.
So refer redhat official website for latest pattern.
