    Default Can I pass Linux+ in 3 weeks?

    Good morning Tech Fam,

    I am currently studying to receive my Linux +. Is it realistically for me to pass this exam and receive this certification in 3 weeks? I have small experience with using Linux and I'm eager to study about 4 hours a day.

    It's possible, but probably very difficult w/o any Linux exp. Realize that the exam covers multiple "flavors" of Linux, touches briefly upon [shell] scripting/programming, and is comprised of 2 separate tests that you must pass. f you have no experience, it might be more prudent to devote 3 weeks to each of the individual Linux+ exams instead of 3 weeks overall.

    Good luck! Keep us updated

    Depends on the quality of you labs and how realistic you are about working out with the VMs to build that "Linux Muscle". Can it be done but when your not in front of the lab you should be thinking about every possible question and how to answer them.

    If you've taken these tests before you know how the exam exercise works and what to expect.

    Good luck!

    I studied and passed both exams in 17 days. Yes, it is doable. I also had a number of certs under my belt already, along with 20 years in IT.

    Realistically, you will need to spend about 150 hours per exam studying, but that varies based on your existing Linux knowledge. My concern would be that 3 weeks at 4 hours/day is not enough.

    Get VMs set up with Debian and Fedora, and spend a lot of time using the command line. It isn't a overly difficult exam, but it isn't a pushover either.
