    Hello,

    I am doing the same as you. I have a little Linux expierence and i am studying for the RHSCA which has replaced the RHCT. All i can say is if your not working with it currently there is a big curve but there are tons of information in the documentation from redhat. Check out the different guides they have and just try be as diligent as you can be with it.
    Sometimes we sit and try to pretend we are happy with what we are doing. Open your eyes and do what you feel will make you happy!

    Hi, what's your background/experience ?


    Best way is to install RedHat on VMware, and practice all the topics.

    If you are new to Linux, I recommend you start with CompTIA Linux+. It's better to shoot for RHCE after you have some hands on experience with Linux. Hands-on experience is the key here, forget about practice questions, RHCE/RHCSA is a lab-based exam, so practice questions are not helpful at all.

    I'm not really familiar with Linux+ best books, you can search the Linux+ sub-forum here. I once read the Sybex book for Linux+ and it was good, but I'm sure there might better books there.


    For RHCE, Michael Jang book is good, but that was for RHCE 5, not sure if there's any book for RHCE 6, but better you focus on Linux+ for now.

    Michael Jang RHCE 6th edition is set to come out this summer. There's another book called "Hands-on Guide to the Red Hat® Exams: RHCSA™ and RHCE® Cert Guide and Lab Manual"- by DamianTommasino, Which comes out in May, I'm reading this one now on Safaribooksonline. icon_study.gif

    Hey buddy,

    Start by just switching! Snag a computer and install Ubuntu. Just live it for about three months. I would also recommend getting some perspective on the community. There is an old movie you should get from Netflix. "Revolution OS" it's all about linux.

    From there, just follow along with some training videos for Linux+ then follow along through a book. Maybe have a personal challenge to do a "post a day" for 90 days trying to help people over at Ubuntu forums.

    Finally comes back and work through your book again, this time with flash cards and do some Q&A.

    pretty much how I got into Linux. Oh, you might also wan to learn the basics of programming if you don't already know a little.
