I have the RHCE study guide book. All the information within the book can easily be found on the web but the book does how you the type of questions that are on the exam and what you should know. Basically you need to know almost everything since they can test you on just about anything dealing with RedHat linux.

The first part of the exam is the installation which I would think would be the easiest. Then their is a multiple choice part and then a lab part. The multiple choice questions are very hard and the lab could be anything from fixing a bad partition to setting up a samba server.

I moved this to the Red Hat forum. As far as the RHCE test goes, just make sure you have some real world experience and you should be fine. I think the test was very fair.

I did RHCT in RH9, and then RHCT in EL3 and RHCE in EL3. as jeremy said, it is very fair but having real world experience is essential i believe. they took out the multiple choice section of the RHCE. But apart from that. I would jump on and do the online assessments you can take. Just to see how you fair.

Good luck though!!!

Yeah, that's the interesting part.
I'm planning to take the exam in March/April. But the RHCE will be on RH9..
Now i wanted to ask something, regarding installations, if someone gave the exam:
1. If they give you an isntall from ftp, are they going to provide you with the particular frp url, since few days back i was trying installing through ftp, and then i spended around 1/2 hours, just looking for one, which will not give me timeout, or some toher error, like it is not anonymous..
2. Then the debuggin prt - that's for me something that can really make you mad, since if we dont' talk about trivial problems (misconf. host resolutions, or something like that, then it can take you even one days to find out what's the problem...Hum that's the only few things till the moment which are driving me mad...A yeah, i remeber something in the RHCE study guide on redhat site, was given something like: basic configuration of network services..Let's take for example Samba - does a basic configuration mean just assigning shares, whcih are accessible from other pcs? Since really nowdays Samab can be configured as PDC, and etc,etc...
Thanks a lot for the advise..
