    Congratulations!! What material did you study, and how long did it take you to feel ready for the exams? I'm going to do them next year just want to know what I'm up against.

    Congrats TechGuy215! Nice score to boot icon_cheers.gif

    BTW you also get the Novell DCTS...it's pretty much a throwaway cert so I wouldn't list it on your resume or anything but...if you're trying to paper your walls it's a good one to toss up there.

    Arod95. I've been using Linux for several years now, so honestly I didn't have to go crazy with the books. I would recommend downloading a distro and just playing with it, try some labs (you can find a ton online for free). Lsud00d, I see the DCTS cert, didn't even notice that one! lol

    Thanks I kind of figured, I'm probably gonna get a Linux book not for the test but more just to get me started, and once I probably get started then I'll probably go more cert focused. Gonna take awhile to get use to linux

    Congrats on pass!! icon_thumright.gif

    I'm currently working on the Linux+. I picked up the CompTIA Linux+ Study Guide for exams: LX0-101 and LX0-102. I'm hoping it won't be too hard since I have experience with Red Hat, SuSe, Ubuntu, and Fedora.

    Congrats! I'm working on this now. The only experience I had before starting to study was using live cd's and a few little things here and there. I'm using the sybex study guide and the essentials book and basically playing around with a bunch of different distros mostly on vm but also on my spare laptop and desktop just to get that physical feel (both had bad HDDs when I got them so I just do install and play around then do another clean install or whatever.
    No longer work in IT. Play around with stuff sometimes still and fix stuff for friends and relatives.
