Passed LPI Linux Essentials Exam

Hello Community ,

Passed my  LPI Linux Essentials Exam recently.  Here is the breakdown of my scores
Scales Score 610

Number Correct31

Number Incorrect9

Test Section InformationPercent Correct

The Linux Community and a Career in Open Source71%

Finding Your Way on a Linux System87%

The Power of the Command Line70%

The Linux Operating System62%

Security and File Permissions100%

I know the score is quite average or perhaps below average.

The biggest mistake I made was that I underestimated the exam a bit . I thought the exam is a bit easy so effectively just studied for 7-8 days max. I went through Kenny's videos twice in detail and made detailed notes from them . So I can confidently say that I almost knew Kenny's  videos 100% as I juust written down his videos into my notes bit by bit. I also did all the excercises and end of course mock exam thoroughly .

I think I got a bit unlucky too in the exam , 3-4 questions were really tough  . But 2-3 questions were apparently so easy but I had no clue to the right answer because I had never heard of that term/application etc .I thought I would get 5 questions wrong once I completed the last question of the exam but to my surprise it was 9 :(

The good thing is that for the first time I have started learning Linux in a proper structured way and I don't want to stop here .I would definitely keep learning.

But for now back to AWS as I already have passed AWS Solutions Architect associate exam (Thanks to LA) and booked the Developer exam next .

Btw paid the yearly subscrpition too to Linux Academy as I feel its really worth it;)

Special thanks to Kenny for preparing a great course and thanks once again to Linux Academy for being a great learning resource . Keep up the good work  !

great! if I may ask, (I'm new here) are Kenny's videos part of the syllabus here?  I'm trying to get resources aligned along with this...

Hello Raymundo, Yes Kenny's videos cover the syllabus thoroughly.If you stick to videos by going through those in detail and solving the excercises + end of course mock exam , you will be in a good position to pass. The most important of all is you will learn quite a lot from the videos .Also please don't forget to go though the study sheet pdf  which you can download from the course section. Best of luck !

Well done, Babar!  A little over a week is a quick study track.  One thing that I would recommend to anyone that is studying Linux is to practice as much as you can.  LPI does not create exams with 'gotcha' questions, but they do focus on practical knowledge a fair bit, which of course comes with practice.  Good luck on your next course!
