Studying for RHCSA/RHCE Exams

Update: I had to put this on hold due to a job switch and haven’t studied any further or signed up for an exam again - 1/6/2015

I have decided to finally get the RHCSA and RHCE certifications. RHCSA stands for Redhat Certified System Adminitrator and RHCE stands for Redhat Certified Engineer. The reason I decided on these exams is for 2 reasons:

  1. They are not multiple choice. You sit at a kiosk with VNC and are given a live RHEL (Redhat Enterprise Linux) instance and are given issues to fix (aka Real World)
  2. A stepping stone to me finally taking my Linux knowledge/skills seriously.

My current study guide:

Also my friend, Major Hayden suggested I look at the objectives list for each exame (RHCSA objectives and RHCE objectives) and ensure I study those items.

Please note, I’ve been using linux for 17 years. I’ve managed multiple systems to hundreds of VMs. I’ll keep you posted on how it goes.

NB: I currently have Ubuntu as my native OS on my laptop, but am feeling out other distributions including Linux Mint and Fedora
