Need advice

I need an advice.

I'm using Linux since 1998. I don't have any IT certificate, and I would like to get one, just to fill up my resume.

If I understood well, Linux+ is vendor-neutral -- but I see that most of you recommend Fedora for practicing. Does that mean that Linux+ is rpm-oriented exam? (I ask this because I'm more dpkg-person, since 90% of my experience is with Debian and Ubuntu). Same problem with GUIs (if it covers them) -- I am GNOME-person (haven't seen KDE for 5 years).

One more question -- considering 10 years of Linux experience, should it be enough to quickly (lets say 3 weeks) go through this book, and then take the exam?

    Welcome to the forums!

    There is going to be some RPM information on the test. I'd encourage you to download the objectives here: and review those.

    You really should consider getting a second book or something like a Transcender practice exam as well. Having that much experience puts you in a good position, so you may be able to get by with just a single resource. However, we typically advise people to use two or more since one resource never seems to cover all the material. If you're looking for another book, the Linux+ 2005 In-Depth book seems to have good reviews as well.

    I agree with the boney penguin :D named dynamik...although being you have that much experience I think LPIC may be a better resume filler for you...check it out its on my list of todo's in the next year or so.
