@luke.meyrick , thank you. I think it's difficult to give advice since everyone has a different style of learning, and has varying levels of experience with Red Hat flavors of Linux. I have a hands-on, learn-as-I-do mentality, so I found the excercises to be very helpful. I also use Fedora and CentOS both professionally and personally. I might recommend spinning up a CentOS home server. I use mine to both learn on and implement personal conveniences like running my own NextCloud instance, and storing all of my movies/TV shows to stream over my home network.
