Sitting for the Exam tomorrow

I have over 45 hours of studying in with Testout material as well as some hands-on with linux.

I hope the test is easier than what some of the other forums have to say about it.

I don't think it is right that you need to memorize command line switches and case sensitivity when Linux pushes --help, man and info pages all the time.

I finished my ccna a few months back and used this as a break from the hard stuff, but it didn't seem like much of a break.

    Good luck on the exam!

    I'm not familiar with Linux+, but I am familiar with Linux. It's important to know at least basic options for commands (ls, grep, find, tar, cp, rpm,....). While it's nice to have man pages and --help, you also don't want to be fumbling around every time you need to do something.

    Just work down the list of exam objectives and you will be golden. Don't trust Testout to be the 'end-all, be-all'. icon_cool.gif

    Have you used their software?

    I am reading through techexam's technotes and they are very close inline with the testout objectives. I hope they are right.

    I looked at MCMSCE.xxx and there questions were pretty close as well, but more challenging with the multiple choice of select all that apply type questions. I would get 2 out of 3 variations right, but still get the answer wrong

    I sit in less than 12 hours. God I hope that testout is right

    I passed the exam today. Barely, but I passed.
    The exam was similar to the testout material but went a little more indepth.

    I think if I did more hands-on, I would have done much better.

    While you have to be familiar with services and where the conf files are, I would also be familiar with the content of the conf files.

    Congratulations and thanks for the feedback. I'm going to be taking this sometime later this year to break up my MS studies a bit.
