I'd like to remind/inform you that there is an upcoming RHCE prep class that will be offered at ACC through the summer. The class has 64 hours scheduled in 4 hour bursts on Monday & Wednesday evenings starting June 8. The cost is about $700.00, which is substantially lower than Red Hat (~$[masked], I think). The ACC website
has more info.
Also, the book that is being used for the class is an excellent reference that can be used in day-to-day administration. It can be purchased through Amazon
. I've found this book, as well as others by the author (Michael Jang) to be excellent. I recently wrote a review, which should be visible at at the link.
Please keep in mind that the RHCE is reputed to be no "cakewalk". There is about a 50% pass rate of first-time takers of the RHCE exam. However, it is one of, if not THE most sought after certification in the industry. This seems like a prime opportunity to become extremely intimate with The Greatest OS on Earth
. If anyone wants to take the class and form a study group, please stay in touch. You can also post your comments/questions/complaints
on the Meetup Message Board.
