Re: [PLUG] RHCE Course Questions

  Those week-long seminars where you get an instructor equipped with
overhead slides for 4 days and then on Friday you take the exam - the
best thing about them is that they get you out of work for a week.  Your
time would be better spent studying at home 9am-4pm and pocketing the
$2,500.  Unfortunately a boss probably wouldn't agree with this idea.

  The best thing to do for the RHCE/RHCT exam is to get a PC and do
everything that will be on the test.   i.e. install fedora core w/RAID
and then configure every service you can think of.  mail, ftp, http,
dns, dhcp, firewall, ssh, nfs, nis, samba.

  When I took the test a grade of A = RHCE, a grade of B = RHCT, or else
you fail and pay $750 to take it again.  If you fail it, immediately
find a paper and pen and write down the test questions, and make sure
you know the answers to those questions when you go to take it the 2nd
time.  The questions will not change much if at all.
