Windows admin taking RHCSA

At work we are looking at deploying Centos/MariaDb boxes. I am in the Infrastructure side and have no Linux experience so I need to ramp up.

I am looking at taking the RHCSA so I am figuring out time lines and study materials.

Would using LinuxAcademy and Sander van Vugt's book be enough? Red Hat RHCSA/RHCE 7 Cert Guide: Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 (EX200 and EX300) (Certification Guide) eBook: Sander van Vugt: Kindle Store

    Those are the 2 resources I'm using as well. Plus a lot of labbing.

    I am using that same combination of Linux Academy and Sander's guide as I am preparing to re-take the exam. I think those two resources are pretty solid. When it comes time to measure how well you are prepared for the exam, try also Cert Depot, a great resource as well.
    I am posioning the forums.

    Pluralsight has a course geared just for you it seems:

    There's also a centos7 LFCSA/RHCSA course thats 1/3 of the way release. It's pretty thorough so far. Pluralsight isn't the cheapest but they put out some quality videos.

    Linuxacademy was good as well for my RHCSA training.

    Sander Van Gut's videos series for both RHCSA and RHCE are on point. If you have a subscription to safari books online you can get his videos there. I would suggest only viewing the MariaDB for RHCE videos and the rest of the RHCSA videos to bring you up to speed with CentOS/RHEL.
