Just incase you might have missed the article on the redhat serviceblog, I will link it for you here. This might be an interesting read for all of you, that are aiming to become Red Hat Certified Professionals.
Indeed it was helpful.
It takes a lot of time to pass the self check question 1 for me, though I can quickly give yes to question 2.
Thanks @Rudolf -- You say many of the same things I tell my students.
I love when I find things like this.
From the article:
"Aim to understand, not to memorize"... "Make sure you can do things, not just understand them".
The advice is golden. I am happy he wrote the article.
Thanks @Rudolf for that great article !
Having taken more than 10 RH exams so far, I'd like to share my own unofficial tips Here they are.
Before the exam:
During the exam:
What about you ? What tip would you give to someone taking a Red Hat exam ?
Very importent tip:
1. Favour a classroom exam over an individual exam. You'll have a desktop computer instead of a laptop, which implies a higher screen resolution to arrange your workspace and a better sitting posture for your neck. Your local lab environment will be more responsive and with no reserved shortcut keys. Even better: you won't be interrupted for the random security check at some point during the exam, and you won't waste time for that security check. Additionnaly, you'll be handed out a worksheet.
Wow, those are all amazing tips. Thanks for sharing all that.
About keyboard layouts, I'm french, but I have been practicing hard on using US keyboards. It took a bit to adapt, but it's always better, and saves ton of time.
I forgot that one : master the vi text editor !
A few other command-line text editors may be available in Red Hat exams' labs, but some administration tools such as visudo, vipw or 'oc edit' open a vi editor by default.
Besides, editing with vi is much faster, once you've learnt key tricks such as copy/cut/paste lines, search (and replace), navigate to the top/bottom of the file and to the beginning/end of a line.
That is also going to be very useful for your career in general, not just for Red Hat exams.
