    Default Taking LX0-102 in 2 days

    So, I'm taking the second part of L+ in two days. I've watched the linuxacademy videos and plan to spend today reviewing their labs and study guide. Tomorrow is the same. My question is about the substance of the test. Is it heavily weighted to fill in the blanks? (Like the 101) Do I need to know the flags or is an understanding of the command enough (again like the 101)? I BARELY passed the 101 and I'm nervous.

    User/Group Management, Networking, and X-Window system are the largest parts of the 2nd exam. I don't recall questions asking for flags. Know the commands and location (path names) of common configuration files.

    Did not pass. Got a 480 and needed a 500. Had a bunch of fill in the blanks and some required all flags and options. There were a couple things on there that I'd never seen or heard of.

    Yeah. They were specific about how they wanted it answered.

    That's sad to hear. What exam objectives gave you trouble?

    apparently all of them... my particular issues that I remember were subnetting (ie ipadress/29 starts on what address and includes how many usable addresses?), the different bash config files (.bash_profile vs ~.profile) and what goes in each, and the location of config files (CUPS config). I also didn't know what went in nsswitch and I missed a couple resolve.conf questions.

    if you have the Subnetting cheat sheet by Jeremy Stretch print it and look at the CIDR and the addresses. You will notice a pattern and can use that as the building block to understand subnetting. Then use one of those easy way to subnet examples and go through and do this for every CIDR on the subnet chart. When you think you have the theory down continue to finish all the subnets off. Then everyday pick a different subnet and go through and write out the answer. Then explain why this is the answer. That will get you past the subnetting. For the profile files draw out a diagram of the files and the order they occur with a quick bullet on what each one does. Repeat this over and over until you have it done and you understand the order and why. Same with the DNS files. It follows a flow from one flat file into another. Build the flow chart with a bullet on what each file does and follow through the logic of each file. As for the file locations you will need to revisit the filesystem structure (FHS)of linux and remember that the majority of files are located in an exact predictable directory with predictable .extension.

    Hope that helps.

    Ha! I know that feeling. Hard luck.

    Question. Does the original exam fee cover retakes? Or do you have to pay over again?
