RHCSA, Which sub-version to practice on?


Hello LQ,

I am planing to prepare/study for RHCSA and hopefully RHCE later on.

Now I would like to know which version of redhat 6.x to practice on and which version of redhat 6.x will be there in the exam room (if that is allowed to talk about)

Note that I am going to use CentOS or SL as I read it's binary compatible with RH.

Thanks in advance.

If you get the latest CentOS 6.x, that should be all you need to learn.

So there is no major difference between RHEL that can effect my exam experience if lets say I use 6.3 and the exam VM has 6.1

No...the minor release numbers are usually security/bugfixes.

And please...do NOT just learn enough to pass an exam. There are many, MANY people who are 'certified', and have no idea what they're doing, so please, don't join their ranks. LEARN linux first. Install it, configure it, do your OWN research on solving problems, configure services, etc. Then your exam will have some actual merit.

I am well aware of that, in fact at the moment I am Networking (protocols, routing, ipv4/6, subnetting etc..), OOP programming and finally server administration which will be my focus.

Just getting certified will result in one of two things or both either you forget everything you learned after a while or stop developing your skills after passing the exam.

I know that from experience

Thanks for the help TB0ne.
