    Wow, thank you. I have gotten of the Linux track but this might just give me a needed kick in the butt to get going again.

    I vote sticky
    How about you mods?
    I plan to eventually tackle these exams. I had started on studying for the Linux+ months ago. I'm still a cli noob and learning a little as I go. This is definitely going to take some concerted effort and I'm trying to finish up at WGU right now.

    Can we also sticky the Red Hat one with the updated info? I know you guys like the LPIC stuff, but the RHCE sticky is pretty out of date too.

    A word of caution, that Happy Monket link is broken, and if you search to find it, once you get to a website, it asks for a credit card number.

    Some good resources there, but unfortunately out dated.

    For the LPIC1 exam there is loads of up to date material. Books on Amazon from 2015, cbt nuggets etc.

    However I'm having some real problem with the LPIC2 material. There is NO CBT NUGGETS! The latest Sybex book I can find is from 2011. :/ The exam was last updated in 2013. So I'm not sure if the Sybex book is still relevant or not....

    And the LPIC3, despite the fact that that is miles off, is even more sketchy on material. This is really disheartening to me, as the LPIC material looked really good and relevant.

    Any one have any up-to-date sources for the LPIC2 exam? I need a book or videos with hands on examples.

    The Urban Penguin is quite good and it's free.

    I believe LinuxAcademy has study material for the first LPIC-2 test, but not the second one. I imagine that they'll get around to making material for the second one at some point.

    Edit: I just logged in and seems like they only have partial material for the first LPIC-2 test right now.

    1) Can I pass LPIC-1 in one exam or need pass two? You will need to pass two exams:
    https://www.lpi.org/certification/ge...-professional/

    2) Is there any lab or just questions with answers? Each exam is 60 questions, mostly multiple choice and some fill in the blank.

    3) when I pass LPIC-1 i will automaticaly get Linux+ and Suse certification. NO, you will need to register for CompTIA Linux+ and have them forward your scores to LPIC. https://certification.comptia.org/certifications/linux

    Hey everyone, I've checked amazon recently, searching for some fresh linux books, and how surprised I was when I've found that there is an up-to-date book for LPIC-1 preparation by Christine Bresnahan, and the LPIC-2 Study Guide will be released in Sep,2016!
    The thing is, the author have changed, it's not Roderick Smith anymore - I guess it means that the overall writing style changed a bit, but nevertheless , it's Sybex Study Guide.. I personally would trust that.
    PS. Really glad that LPI's alive, and doing fine, as some new books appear on the market.. it's been a long time since the last LPIC study guide realease.
    But I really doubt that there will be any LPIC-3 study guides in the near future.

    Hey Masq, I'm just starting down the LPIC track. I see you have LPIC-2. What did you use to study and prepare? It will be a while until I get that far, but it would help to have some ideas for the future. Thanks.

    Hi.
    I used a number of books; not a big fan of video courses and online tutorials, so a classic bookworming is my choise.
    For my preparation I read Rob Tracy's Comptia Guide, and Roderick Smith's LPIC-1 Guide.. But both these books are outdated now.
    And so, if I were you, I would stick with C.Bresnahan's LPIC-1 Study Guide.

    ed.:
    Yeah, and for the LPIC-2 .. it was a way different story, just check my threads in this forum. In any case, LPIC-2 Study Guide that is going to be released in Sep,2016 looks _very_ promising to me, and by the time you start your preparation for this exam, the book will still be up to date..
    From my experience, the "study guide" itself helps you actually get the minimum score and pass the exams, but for me it wasn't just enough, so I overprepared for LPIC2 exams as I wanted to get a deeper understanding of all the exam objectives, and for every subject that I wasn't familiar with, I got a separate book.. Like one book for Postfix, another one for squid, and another one for OpenVPN, and so on, and read, re-read, and labbed until I felt like a ninja,yeah..

    I wonder if there's any difference between https://www.amazon.com/dp/1119021189/ and https://www.amazon.com/dp/1119021219/

    Well, besides about $2. Same authors.

    Hell sure there _is_ a difference... - the "introductory part ".
    LPIC-1 Certification Study Guide
    Paperback: 696 pages
    Publisher: Sybex; 4 edition (April 27, 2015)
    CompTIA Linux+ Powered by blablabla guide
    Paperback: 696 pages
    Publisher: Sybex; 3 edition (April 27, 2015)
    - No surprises . As Linux+ got "powered by LPI" it's like being officially dead. It is LPI exam, with another naming, that's it.
    Same for the books.

    Hey everyone.
    Recently I found a couple of web resources covering LPIC-3(304) Exam objectives:
    wiki:certification:lpic304 [LPI Certification Documentation]
    https://www.lisenet.com/lpic-3/
    These look promising enough.. Well, after skipping through these web-pages, I can state that they are not very detailed, but both are worth looking at. It's better than nothing they say.

    I have received an email from LPI that they are going to release an update to LPIC-2 from version 4.0 to version 4.5 in the last quarter of this year, maybe from October or November.

    This includes...lots of changes from:
    - Increasing the coverage of systemd, including journaling and filesystem mounting
    - Addition of IPv6 and TLS
    - Updates to Linux 4.x, Apache 2.4...
    - Removal detailed knowledge on lilo
    ... and more could be found at https://wiki.lpi.org/wiki/LPIC-2_Sum...ion_4.0_To_4.5

    Personally I thinks this should be the necessary step up from version 4.0 (released from 2014) to update all new knowledge to candidates who want to achieve to this certification level. Get excited but there are lots of things to prepare for it

    Nice to see they're continuing to update the objectives with current technologies. I think the added objectives definitely add value to the LPIC-2 certification.
