The second test (LXO-104) was slightly more challenging than I expected due to fill-in-the-blanks questions. It is definitely easier to choose the correct answer from a list than to remember the exact answer/path, etc...
Of couse, I should have studied the Study Guide more, but I really wanted to get the tests over with and get my certification ASAP.
Thank you, all! I just wish I'd made my post's title a little less inarticulate. As it turns out, you can't edit the title after it has been saved. I blame it on all the nights of 3-5 hours sleep leading up to taking my test... (That is my story at least and I'm sticking to it.)
I wish I could be more specific on what people need to focus on before taking the test. If it can be of any use to anyone else these are the areas that were most challenging to me:
1) Know the exact paths for everything. Writing them out perfectly is significantly harder than picking from a list.
2) Be ready for fill in the blanks for everything from db related questions to flags/options/variables.
3) Be honest with yourself on whatever area happens to be your weakness and spend extra time and effort (and real practice) to get some experience with using them. For example, I have very little (read: none) prior experience with TCP wrappers and xinet/xinetd. Suffice it to say that I will be working on improving that area of personal deficiency...
The other thing I would recommend to those that have not taken the test is to "flag" every question you are remotely concerned about to be able to easily revisit them at the end. You never know, but you may find some hint in another question that makes the correct answer more clear the second time around. If I could not say with 100% certainty that my answer was correct I flagged it.
Thanks again for all the encouragement! Now on to DevOps (and then some)!
