That One Time I Passed My Linux Essentials Exam!

As much as I love IT, Linux was the one thing that intimidated me. The lack of a GUI and the idea of having to learn the command line in order to navigate the OS was very intimidating. I have to say that taking the Linux Essentials course you guys offer has helped me get over my fear and understand Linux more. I was supposed to sit for the exam this coming Saturday, but after getting scores of 94%-100% passing scores on my practice exams, reviewing the flashcards, and going over the video notes, I knew it was time. Needless to say, I passed with a score of 670 out of 800 (passing score: 500). 


Thanks so much Linux Academy for not only providing excellent content to help me pass, but also for helping this girl get over her fear of the command line. I will be using you guys for my next certification!

Congrats Keithia!  As a node to Kenny's remarks, the more you work with the command line, the more you will find you beging to prefer it.

And to echo everyone else: The command line really does become like second nature once you get used to it! I'm so happy you got over that fear and absolutely rocked your exam!

Congrats! The command line is one of those things that once you've tamed it you will rely on it more than you'd think. I opt for CLI tools over GUI based tools almost any time I can now.

Congratulations Keithia!

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
