Hi everyone
I've decided to take LPIC-1 exam.I attended the course about 1.5 years ago . I have materials(3rd edition of Linux in nutshell from O'reilly) and some practical background on networking tasks with Linux.Can you guys give me some advice HOW TO STUDY for the exam?I should mention for a few months I was away from Linux.

    Unfortunately I don't have the answer to your question but have you considered doing the Linux+ (Powered by LPI) exams ? If you do those you can get Linux+, LPI Level 1 and Novell Linux Administrator certifications for the price of one certification icon_cool.gif.

    I haven't take that exam, but for any linux/unix exam, my approach is to do everything on the objectives list practically.

    for example, if user management is part of objectives, I make sure that I can do that practically, and test that everything is working. You can also look for practice tests like Transcender or something.

    Good advice.I also bought CBT videos and they are very good.

    That's excellent. It's always a good idea to have an instructor (through CBT). always test your configurations. For example if you configure a user, login using that user, see the home directory. Try to create files/directories and see the permission. Take notes and review them


    Good luckicon_thumright.gif

    I did the 2 exams for this cert some years ago. I used Oreilly's 'LPI Certification in a nutshell". My edition is outdated now but I still use it at work as a reference. I stuck closely to the objectives and practiced a lot.
