Passed Chef Basic Fluency Exam with 80%

Reposting as achievement: I passed the Chef Basic Fluency Exam. My feedback on Linux Academy's Training:

This course did a good job getting me started. I believe most topics covered on LA's course was on the exam.

I never used Chef before, and I studied for about a week and a half. The course did go over all the essentials. My only concern that LA did not provide exercises. For me to fully grasp a concept, I have to use the tools. Although I did follow the instructors in-video procedures, I think having practice exercies (similar to other LA courses) is benefical to grasp concepts.

I also used LearnChef Rally (which is free) to perform alot of exercises, this helped me understand concepts better.

Last thing for anyone seeking to get this badge. Follow the study topics found at chef's website ( I literally went through each scope topic listed, and wrote bullet points for each. Chef Rally exercises are found in the link as well.

Overall, the exam was not difficult. As long as you watch LA's videos, use Chef Rally, and go over the study topics guide, the exam should be passable on first attempt.

It's great to hear you passed, Ernesto! Thanks for your feedback. We're working hard to bring more and more hands-on stuff to play with since, as you said, it's one of the best ways to really grasp a topic. Keep up your hard work and I'm looking forward to seeing your next achievement. :D
