The thanks are mine! You now have a lifetime cert, sir! Don't suppose I could talk you out of those practice exam/test questions and any cheatsheets/links you used that haven't been posted yet, maybe?

My study resources included:PenguinTutor Linux LPI practice exams (LPI202 and 102)
Robb Tracy's book / practice q's in book
Robb Tracy's cd-rom - has Total Tester with a load of questions (this was very useful)
Bresnahan's CompTIA Linux+ Study Guide, Third EditionBresnahan's practice exam
In short: I read both books. I did every single practice question and read the questions I got wrong, and figured out why I was wrong. I did it over and over so it was engrained in me. For example, if you asked me how to view a mail queue, I could instantly say 'the mailq command will show what's in the queue. If there is nothing, you will still get a message saying no mail'.
A big thing is having two VMs. I had one ubuntu and one OpenSUSE. I would use systemctl to setup openSSH and share public keys, add them to the keyring, display the keys, revoke keys etc I set up CUPS and knew the port number it used etc.
A combination of reading, practical work and extensive practice questions and reviewing answers you got wrong will help you pass this! Hope this helps!

Si20 congratulations bud! 800/800 just wow! I wish we could talk about the exams but nonetheless well done! Best of luck with everything!
shochan, you should have purchased certmaster as it is probably one of the worst preparation guides for this exam. I would strongly recommend get your money back if it's not too late and stick to the books and practice exams. Certmaster got it all wrong with Linux+ guide.

Be sure to update your resume on the job boards - usually recruiters will review/notice new resume uploads. At least that is what I have noticed whenever I would update mine on CareerBuilder, Indeed, Monster.
