Red Hat Certified System Administrator EX200K

Passed the exam today! 

Surprisingly got the results back only an hour or so after taking the individual kiosk exam.  

The exam delivery was a tad different than I expected it to be, even being an experienced admin.

To those questioning sources for study:  Linux Academy, Jang's book, and CertDepot.net hit all the points from various angles.

Only advice I would give for LA or future individuals considering the exam, is to NOT focus on authconfig-gtk.  Time is a valuable resource in the exam and installing a GUI is not worth it.  In realworld work environments, chances are you won't have it.

Authconfig-tui (deprecated but still available) absolutely will not work unless you remember to enable force legacy mode with authconfig anyway.  Know how to use both legacy and sssd, but authconfig via CLI and the sssd method is fastest and best way to go in my humble opinion.

And lastly, read all instructions/questions very carefully, 10+ times if you need to.  Tasks are written well, but can be a little tricky. Reading all the tasks will help identify the order to attack them.

Thanks again to LinuxAcademy for the great vids and content.  It helped refresh everything.

    Congratulations Robert!

    I’d love to endorse/recommend you on LinkedIn if you want. All you have to do is add me as a connection and add Linux Academy as your school. Once you do that, post a picture of your cert about passing in your feed and reference me within the original post. Once I see this, I’ll be able to recommend you for your hard work on your LinkedIn profile.

    Thanks,

    Anthony
