First off thanks to TE for the support, AceRimmer and log32 for their advice.
This is part 2, part 1 is "Just passed RHCSA, here's the path that worked for me"

Looking at the requirements for The RHCSA exam, to me it consisted of many tasks and a few some services.
(RHCSA objectives) https://www.redhat.com/training/courses/ex200/examobjective#

The RHCE consists of many services and depth of configuration in those services
(RHCE objectives) https://www.redhat.com/training/courses/ex300/examobjective#

I started by breaking down the individual requirements of the RHCE and going through the books to figure out how to make the services/security/firewall work for the requirement. It was a lot of trial and learning which booleans and firewall/service configuration settings worked to make the RHCE objectives function. Used my same Lenevo laptop that was my lab for RHCSA, RHEL 6 with two Virtual machines. Reinstalled my practice virtual machine more times than I can count. Think the test is fair in what the Objectives state and what they ask.

This was the first RH test I took in the Individual Exam Chair. Took my whole allotted time on the test. by the time I drove back to work and checked (about 1 hour 30 minutes) Red Hat had emailed me my test results.

Passing score for the exam: 210.0
Your score: 247

Thanks again to TE for the posts and the support.

    I don't plan on going on for other Red Hat Certification. I do want to get some time with SUSE and see where RHEL 7 ends up.
