Passed EX300

This week I've passed EX300.
Most of my study material came from Nightshade's book and Michael Jang's book for RHEL 6. I did do some googling when I thought that some thing weren't clear.Be careful- both books have mistakes (see multiple ssl vhosts in M Jang book)
I think the exam is much harder than EX200 and time is shorter so you have to be quick. Not all the objectives were touched. We were 5 in the classroom. One guy had time to solve everything and check some of the objectives but not all.

ADVICE: REBOOT AT LEAST ONCE. WE HAD A GUY WHO SOLVED EVERYTHING AND 20 MINUTES EARLIER BUT WHEN THE COMPUTER REBOOTED HIS COMPUTER DIDNT BOOT ANYMORE-> FAIL.

I think I'll go for the SUSE certification now (I live in EUROPE and SUSE is pretty common here).
I also sugest this guide -is good for a quick recap
RHCE: My study guide « João Ubaldo Blog
I will post in the next few days the labs I've done in the next few days(except those in the books).
Good luck guys on your exams

    I agree with the reboot thing. I remember I configured things slowly and rebooted after each major configuration to test things

    Congrats on the pass!

    What's next?
    Also, what sort of experience did you have previous to taking the exam?
    Work in progress: picking up Postgres, elastisearch, redis, Cloudera, & AWS.
    Next up: eventually the RHCE and to start blogging again.

    I'm a systems engineer. Dont know exactly. I like what I'm doing. Maybe changing the work environment for diversity.

    Very nice. Do you work on MS and Linux or just Linux?
  • BodanelBodanel Posts: 214Member ■■■□□□□□□□
    Both Windows and Linux.

    The key is to pay attention to changes in /etc/fstab. This is basically the only place you can screw up.
    Even then, you can get out of it by booting with init=/bin/bash and editing/commenting out lines in /etc/fstab.

    There is Novell's RHCE-2-NCLP exam, and all materials covering differences between RHEL and SLES are available on their web site for free.
