    Default Failed Linux Essentials Test

    Good Morning alll,
    I took my Linux Essentials test yesterday evening and failed My score was 440

    The Linux Community and a Career in open source 71%
    Finding your way on a Linux System 50%
    The power of the command line 10%
    The Linux Operating System 75%
    Security and file Permissions 57%

    The few command line questions I had were things I had not done in labs before. I plan on working on what I missed and doing better for the next test

    Any suggestions to improve are welcome

    I would skip the Linux essentials exam and focus on Linux+ or LPIC, then go learn the Linux CLI. Get on youtube and find some Linux+ videos & follow along with the CLI so you can be practicing those cmds as you go. Read a couple of books before attempting it again, that way you will absorb the material better. Follow the exam objectives and go through each one until you "know it", repeat.

    Cheers & Hi5!

    First to thing to say would be don't get disheartened. I failed my CompTIA A+ first time around but hasn't prevented me from moving on with my career.

    I would recommend having a look at the Linux Academy course on Linux Essentials, they'll cover everything you need for the exam: https://linuxacademy.com/linux/train...nux-essentials
