RHCSA 7 books

I have decided to make a slight career path change down the Linux route. My day to day activities vary with their depth into Linux. I'm looking to get a good Linux cert and from what I'm reading, the RHCSA is a good route to take. I was looking to buy a book but it looks like the ver 7 material for the new test isn't covered in any of the books out on Amazon. Should I just pick up one of the following books and supplement with the new material from Red Hat's documentation?

Red Hat Certified System Administrator & Engineer: Training Guide and a Quick Deskside Reference, Exams EX200 & EX300: Asghar Ghori: 9781467549400: Amazon.com: Books

RHCSA/ RHCE Red Hat Linux Certification: Exams (Ex200 & Ex300) (Certification Press): Michael Jang: 9780071765657: Amazon.com: Books

    Well, your subject says "Red Hat 7", but both of those books are RH 6. There aren't any RH 7 books out yet as far as I know.

    At this time the only version on 7 come from Red Hat.

    If you follow the objectives from the exam from Red Hat and know how to perform them, you should pass.

    You can't go wrong with the Red Hat Product Documentation as they're straight from the horse's mouth. The guide's pretty straightforward.

    If you are like me, my company is not moving to RHEL 7 for another 3-4 years. I simply paid for the vouchers on RHEL 6 but can take the exam anytime within one year.

    Same here, we have no plans in the near future to move to 7, although the vast majority of our machines are on 6, we still have some RH 5 machines around.

    Thanks for the info! I'll just go ahead and purchase one of the RHEL 6 books for now.
