Passed the LFCS

I successfully completed the LFCS Tuesday. I got my results last night. I earned the credential initially in 2017 under the previous domains. While challenging then, it is certainly more difficult now and more indicative of a senior sysadmin. It is a great credential for a linux professional that has a certification requirement.

Advice for prepping for it:
Lots of practice on all domains at the shell. Make use of the LA playground or your homelab.
Firewall and packet filtering = know iptables. No firewalld here.
In addition to the Linux Academy LFCS course, do the Linux Networking   and Troubleshooting course with  Michael.
If you are unfamiliar with containers go through Essential Container Concepts with Ell.
If you are weak in the shell, grab the bash scripting, working at the command line, and the regular expressions course. You will not pass this test with negligible shell skills. In this context shell = bash.

The materials here are great and a great value. They are not sufficient by themselves and practice/experience is a must.

Thanks for sharing your experience and congratulations!

You are correct in that the materials themselves are rarely enough alone. Once you have digested the videos, the study guides and flash cards, the labs and playground servers to follow along and practice the demos are equally important. Everything you need IS here, just be sure you spend the time with the materials and especially the hands-on and, as you proved, you will succeed!
