This test doesn't get the credit or the attention it deserves. This is probably due to the test still being new and the Red Hat certs getting more attention. I have about 3 years in Linux experience and even then I felt I wasn't quite ready during the test. Linux Academy was my primary resource for study material. However, there was a few things like setting up Linux as a router, containers, and a few other topics that weren't discussed in depth. Scripting is something I'm still working on and there was quite a few questions on scripting. If someone has a solid background in networking, scripting, and some Linux experience then they'll do fine. It's definitely one of their harder exams and rightfully so. On a side note, the VMs during the practical exercises are seriously lacking. There's only but a handful commands that you can use and even then that may not be enough. Linux Academy is definitely worth the subscription but it's not enough to pass the exam. It's time to regroup and focus on CISM.
Goals: AWS Solutions Architect; OSCP; GPYC; GSE; CISSP
The old test is probably what someone will get if they do the LPIC exam. The 2 exams were both quite challenging so I doubt Comptia would have made it easier considering there are other competing certs
The newer exam was challenging and Linux Academy material over prepares you for the exam. A lot of the material that was covered in Linux Academy wasn’t even covered in the exam. I’m certainly glad I got the exam knocked out. Now it’s time to focus on CISM.
Congrats on the pass !! Good Luck on your CISM.
