    Well I just finished my Redhat course this semester and since I made a 97 in the class I'll be getting a free RHCT voucher. The only problem is that I most likely won't be able to make it to my university where it is offered

    The exam costs $400 so I suggest you make every effort to make it.

    I know, the community college im at lets me substitute my certs for comp classes, so If I get it finished in summer I wont have to take linux class in fall semester and that will save me alot of time and money lol and then I can take some other classes instead. Ugh need to get off my lazy butt!

    I've been wondering this for a little while now...will the current LPI books be used for the new Linux+ or will anything be updated. *hoping that my Sybex LPI book will be enough*

    After a month I finally got a reply from CompTIA. The XK1-003 won't give you credit for LPIC-1, you have to go through the new two exam format.

    Finally getting back to thinking about LPIC again.

    I am going to pick up the new LPIC book when it comes but until then I will use the sygress Linux+ guide (which apparently sucks Amazon.com: LPIC-1: Linux Professional Institute Certification Study Guide: (Exams 101 and 102) (9780470404836):…) and the Linux Admin a Beginners guide. I will start tracking my progress here, again....

    Just curious, how respected is this cert? I have a little bit of linux in my background but don't use it on a day to day basis (probably not even week to week or month to month). I considered studying up to get this cert just to have it and to add some extra broadness to my background. Do you think it is worth it?

    Meh...

    In some circles it is known by name. In others it is known by association (A+, Net+, Sec+). Now that the Linux+ is the LPIC-1 I think it will be more respected (at least material wise). I think if you want to go into linux for certify in linux to add to an existing skill set it is ok. There are more respected linux certs out there (mainly RHCT/E) but this is an ok start.

    Like I said, its not something I really use much, but I think its great to have the skill. And there isn't a much better way to prove you have a skill than to be certified with it.

    I don't really know much about any other linux certs. Could you provide a link?

    Default Linux+/Security+ push

    So in a few weeks (more than likely the first week of June) I am going to start making a push to picking up the Security+ and the Linux+/LPIC-1. I think I can pick up the Security+ by the end of June (I started reading Darrils book before but I need to pick it back up tonight). I would like to take the LXO - 001 and 002 at the end of July and August respectively. Anyone down for a study group for either or both?

    Which Redhat course did you take?

    So are the xk0-003 books irrevlevant? I bought both the book and the study guide... Guess I'll be purchasing another new book.
