    Hey, best of luck to you on the exam.

    I think if you pass LPI 102 you should take the Linux+ while you are already on the subject and to review both of them for us.

    CompTIA took alot of criticism over XK0-001 (2001) being too easy and they made XK0-002 a little harder.

    I would be curious to hear a review from someone that took both LPI and Linux+.

    Let us know how you do.

    Once again a pleasant LPIC exam.

    I knew the material pretty well and the test was very straight forward. I studied by first reading the Sybex LPIC-1 Study guide. It was an easy read but did a good job following objectives and had alot of decent material. Additionally I did have 2 Debian and 1 Fedora box that i used to study on. I have been using Debian for a while but needed a redhat system because alot of the material covers redhat/fedora.

    I have setup and administered apache, bind, ftp, ntp, and ssh in the past so almost all of the material was familiar to me. Anything that i didnt have much experience with linux printing, NFS, SAMBA I did a little extra work and googled the topics.

    The test was all multiple choice and fill in the blank. There were no questions that caught me by surprise. I did however only score a 680 with 500 being the minimum passing mark. I thought i would have been closer to the 750 mark but without knowing the exact weight on the questions and so forth i couldnt be positive.

    Score breakdown:
    Kernal 80%
    Boot intialization, shutdown, runlevels 100
    Printing 33% <---only got 1 out of 3 questions right i think its what skewed my score
    Documentation 100%
    Shells, scripting, programming 100%
    Administrative tasks 80%
    Network Fundamentals 100%
    Network Services 88%
    Security 100%

    Over half the tests was the network fundamentals, network services, and administrative tastks.

    Post here or message me if anyone has any more specific questions.

    On to CCNA

    I had to give up my LPIC-1 pursuit in favor of CCNA for the moment, (not to mention CCDA, finishing up MCSE: Security, and looking at MCITP,) but I'll get back on the horse soon enough. Big congrats on the pass, and good luck on your CCNA studies.
