How much Linux is on CASP 002?

I'm scheduled to take the exam in 2 weeks. Been using Abernathy, Cybrary and various labs. Have only come across a handfull of mentions of Linux on exam. Two co-workers who've taken it (1 passed 1 didn't) have told me otherwise.

One has told me he had at least 5 multiple choice questions. The other told me he had a LAB based on Linux.

I know the basics (a few commands and definitions of kernals). Something tells me I should expect more on the exam....(?)

If so, any advise on good Linux labs? Want to be a "ready as possible".

Thanks all!

    I would breeze back over the CASP objectives & see what Linux info they list & study for that.

    I just played around with a Kali Linux VM for a bit, but overall I didn't focus on Linux too heavily for the CASP.

    there won't be direct questions related to it but i would prepare for linux syntax to be in some question so its helpful to know

    I took the exam and failed it. I would recommend, if you have time, to go to edx.org and sign up for the Linux Foundation course. It might prove at least somewhat useful.

    When I took 002 there may have been around 10 Linux questions. Definitely be familiar...

    I went through a boot camp where the instructor focused more on Linux vs everything else. I disagreed especially when I took the test last fall and saw the exam focused more on security concepts, Windows, attacks, etc.

    Having said that, there were quite a few questions and a simulation that required Linux/RHEL knowledge.
