Yep +1.All I can say is take a minute or three and read ALL the questions and then plan how you are going to approach them.
Don't do it in the order it's presented and choose your strengths to focus on first where you know you can put in the most points.
I got ****ed by doing things in the listed order and that doesn't work.
Nope haven't done it again.Yep +1.
Did you pass the second time round as well?
I'm sure you'll do fine now that you know what to look out for.Nope haven't done it again.
Baby has kind of ****ed up my year so they better not come with any *** about my voucher having expired or some nonsense as I expect from Torque IT.
Must make an effort to go do it in August.
1.) I wrote my first exam in CPT / 2nd in JHB (as CPT didn't have dates).Thank you so much guys, I will make sure I read the questions and then get the base configuration done first.
I noticed last night while studying that the command to add slaves to a network team is different in newer version of RHEL7 - so luckily found that.
With regards to the scripting, do I need to know it really well? This part has me quite scared, I do script everyday basically but it's not something that I need to do with a time limit.. eish.
Currently I am working through the RHCE videos by Sander Van Vugt, I have his lab with the 3VM's setup so I am practicing on there, got about a month left to practice.
Will it be possible to pass first time? Seeing that I only have this one chance lol.. And I need to fly to JHB for the exam as no one in CPT ever takes it
Thank you so much for the reply.1.) I wrote my first exam in CPT / 2nd in JHB (as CPT didn't have dates).
2.) I used Sander's materials (not his VM's though) for RHCE - they're worth the money.
3.) Passing first time - sure, but the percentage of first time passers is small. Something like <30%. I'd say here that it depends heavily on your time management / previous experience.
4.) Bash scripting in the list of requirements, so you may need to be able to perform some tasks. That being said it wouldn't be my main concern - there's far more to this exam than this one topic.
There's an NDA so I can't disclose much, but personally I found NFS to be the hardest topic (mainly as I hadn't done Kerborized NFS before).Thank you so much for the reply.
If I may ask... If you were to write again, what would you focus extra hard on? From my research NFS and Samba seems to be Super important?
Shot thanks man, will take a look. appreciate itThere's an NDA so I can't disclose much, but personally I found NFS to be the hardest topic (mainly as I hadn't done Kerborized NFS before).
I'd head over to CertDepot and take a look and see what you do / don't feel comfortable with. I've commented and added some tips for the RHCE there previously as well.
