    Well,

    I PASSED!! icon_cheers.gif The LX0-101 that is..

    I didn't get the high score I wanted, but i'm just happy I passed!

    My advice: read the questions carefully, and understand the concepts.

    The Transcender practice exams were pretty good, They made me go back and study a little more on some topics, like disk quotas. I'm not sure if it's that necessary though-Good if you can afford.

    The Complete Linux+ (Sybex) has been the only book I have been using along with the some man pages reading. I believe this is enough as long as you understand the concepts. I also used Virtual Box with Ubuntu, CentOS, and Fedora 12 VM's.


    Next... LX0-102 icon_study.gif

    Good for you and good luck on your next one. I've had to put that aside for now, but I'll get back on it. How much experience in Linux did you have prior to your starting your studies? And how much time did you spend in getting ready?

    I have been going to school for my AAS in Linux Networking for 2 years now.. I have no real world experience but I'm in the running for a Jr. Linux system admin position at my current job.

    I started studying for the Linux+ (lx0-101) about 5 days ago with the Sybex book and Transcender practice exam. I read chapters 1-5 back and forth and hit the man pages for additional info.. especially for dpkg and rpm. I was weak on DPKG packages and apt-get because we only used the Red Hat strains in school (Fedora, CentOs).

    It has been crunch time!! icon_study.gif
