    Default Pluralsight?

    Are the Linux+ courses at Pluralsight a good option?

    IMO https://linuxacademy.com/ is a better option if your goal is learn linux and get the cert. They also include a lab environment with your subscription.

    I haven't looked at the PluralSight videos, so I can't review them.

    However, I DID use Linux Academy almost exclusively and passed my Linux+ by quite a large margin. Took me less than a month to complete both exams (although I was unemployed at the time, so I had as much time as I wanted to study every day).
    Goals for 2017:
    RHCSA, RHCE, LFCS: Ubuntu | Project+ | AWS Certified DevOps Engineer | Learn Docker, Kubernetes, Prometheus, Golang | Improve Python Programming

    I think Andrew Mallet's courses for Linux+
    https://app.pluralsight.com/library/...le-of-contents
    https://app.pluralsight.com/library/...le-of-contents
    and deep dive in some topics also Andrew's courses for LFCS:
    https://www.pluralsight.com/search?q...published_date
    will be very good option for exam preparation.
    I'm also suggest accompanying with this book:
    CompTIA Linux+ / LPIC-1 Cert Guide Premium Edition and Practice Test | Pearson IT Certification
    It isn't best book, but in Premium Edition it's come with 4 practice exam for each one and 10% discount for exam price.

    Good luck...

    What I'll write bellow it's my own opinion
    Teaching style of Linuxacademy not good for Linux+ exam(Multiple Choice, etc). That style will be good for performance based exam(RHCSA/RHCE, LFCS/LFCE).
    In my case, Andrew's courses was better choice. I'm in IT world from 1996. In Unix(Solaris, HP-UX) from 2004 and in linux world(Redhat, Debian) from 2010. For my new job position Lpic certificate was required and when I'm try arrange my knowledge for exam, Andrew's course and style of teaching fitted much better than others. I also tried Linuxacademy, CBT Nuggets, Testout and Sunder Van Vught Linux+/Lpic-1 courses.
    If you new in Linux and want study and prepare for exam, Linuxacademy is one of best source for studying Linux, bat it's not enough to pass exam.

    I am currently studying Linux+ courses from Pluralsight, so far I like it. However not sure about the results, as I just started. Haven't tried any other option. I am also considering buy Cermaster from CompTIA's marketplace.

    Linux Academy is your best choice for any Linux type training.
