Advice about studying for Linux+ LXO 101

I am studying for the Linux+ exam and feel a bit overwhelmed. There are so many commands and switches. Do you have to know every switch and flag for every command? I am new to Linux, but trying to learn. I am using the AOI book and CompTIA Linux+ study guide. I joined the Linux Academy and have access to the Testout videos. Without breaking any non-disclosure agreements, does anyone have any advice? Testing in 9 days and don't want to come up short. Anyone try out Transcender's practice exams?

    I use the following to study for the Linux+ exam:

    TestOut videos and practice exams
    CompTIA Linux+ Study Guide
    Testing lab environment - practice using commands, installing different distros

    If you know the command line well especially the BASH side I think you will do well!! :)

    That is why I enjoy Red Hat exams, you don't need to know the whole syntax of a command. With MAN and HELP it can at least point you in the right direction and if you studied well enough; your mind will remember it as you see it.
