I have achieved the EX180 exam, and I would say that being familiar with the Linux command line is definitely very helpful. After all, containers are Linux at heart, so I would absolutely recommend knowing Linux at the very least at the user level.
RHCE is definitely not required. RHCSA would be helpful. I would recommend you take DO180, and if you feel overwhelmed, then take a look at RH134 as well.
You can take RHCE later. Note that you need to obtain RHCSA before RHCE.
Thank you, Marek. I agree with your comments.
Also I'm wondering if there are any sample questions available for EX180? Having Linux experience and taking DO180 course in RHLS + lab exercises is enough to achieve EX180? Appreciate any guidance.
There are no sample questions for EX180 as far as I know (none that we officially release at least, not sure what other vendors/companies do).
So what to do to prepare for the exam? Well, that's why we create comprehensive reviews. In DO180, you can take a look at the comprehensive review and try to complete it without looking at the solutions.
If you can complete at least most of it without looking at the solutions, I'd say chances are pretty good for you passing the exam.
I would also say that though we, the course developers, do not know what is in the exam (the exam team is separate from us, and that is on purpose), I am confident that we prepare students for a large part of EX180.
Of course, there might be something new or something we did not cover in depth (typically, that's also on purpose for our exams). If you are truly worried about the exam, I would recommend you go through the exam objectives and evaluate whether you truly know each part of those objectives.
If you are confident in all of the objectives, I would say you are ready. If you are not confident in a couple of the objectives, take a look at the DO180 course and recreate some of the GEs/labs on your personal machine if you can. That'll take your learning to the next level.
The above are, of course, just my personal suggestions. I have written a blog post about passing our exams, that might be helpful to you as well.
Hi Marek_Czernek, i have passed the RHCSA v8 no 20Sep2022. now preparing EX180, but not confident about OCP and RHEL8, because faced some many issues, while praticing.
1. which OCP exam version is available to attempt ? OCP 4.6 or 4.10 ?
2. if OCP 4.6 then underline RHEL version would be 8.2 or 8.4 or ?
3. if OCP 4.10 is available for EX180, then underline which RHEL 8 version would be in exam. ?
