For some reason, I was not able to load the 3 VM from the CD.

Read the book, do the exercises, read the recommended reading and take the assesment tests on RedHat's site, and you'll do fine.

I find this book very useful, as well as the full study guide, in preparing from my RHCSA/RHCE exams - highly recommended.

This book was written with the intentions of being used with Michael Jang's other RHCSA / RHCE Study Guide (http://www.amazon.com/RHCSA-Linux-Certification-Study-Edition/dp/0071765654/)

I have both of these books. I used the RHCSA / RHCE study guide to earn my RHCE a few months ago, but I also have this companion as a tool to keep sharp. This is another well written, well thought out book by Mr. Jang. He gives excellent exercises and examples in the text, and they are all designed to work in tandem with the virtual machines he includes on the DVD that ships with the book. He gives great instructions for setting up the virtual machines in the book, which essentially gives you a perfect "Practice Lab" that is essential to retaining the RHCE knowledge.

If you are looking at this book, I assume you know that the Red Hat exams are purely practical and very difficult. With both of Mr. Jangs study guide and companion (this book), you will have everything you need to go from barely knowing linux, to being able to master both the RHCSA and RHCE exams. I have been fortunate to attend actual Red Hat training, and these books were the perfect study companion as well.

I honestly cant give this book a good enough review it is that good. I can only attest that without these books, earning my RHCE would have been *difficult*. In the linux field, this is the most highly recommend books for Red Hat based distributions. Not only will they serve you well in preparation for the exams, they will give you years of benefit as a solid desk reference. Mr. Jang gives great explanations of the How's and Why's of each subject, that you actually learn the materials.

Just be ware, This book is designed to be used as the companion to his main study guide.

Pre-ordered this book before it was released and got it early. It's great. It assumes very little knowledge to begin with which was frustrating at first because I was looking for a review. This book was recommended to me by a RedHat instructor. The author's preface goes on and on about how this is not a replacement for instruction from RedHat, and so on. Hooey on that. If you have access to a decent 64-bit computer (required by the virtual machines that come with the book), and a CentOS iso (or you can download one), you will be well on your way toward mastery. Read the book, do the exercises, read the recommended reading and take the assesment tests on RedHat's site, and you'll do fine. Aced the RHCSA and feel comfortable with testing for RHCE which I will do early December.
I recommend this book to anyone really dedicated to RedHat certification. There is a lot of work to do on your part; this book is merely a guide, but it is a very competent guide.

I'll start off by saying that I own both the Study Guide and this Practice Exams guide. Many people in my office have purchased copies and find these to be the most useful, authoritative prep out there for these exams.

Thanks Mike Jang for keeping this series current.

Now for my gripes:

1. I expected that the contents of the physical book would be included as PDFs on the DVD or within the gamma VM as I'm accustomed to from the study guide. They are not.

2. The practice VMs idea had promise, but I found the execution to not have turned out so great. I think this would have been better of as a compressed folder that you'd drop on the home dir of your main VM, perhaps with a simple shell script to do any VM customization (not really necessary). You're far better served by standing up 3 current Scientific Linux 6.3 VMs on a Scientific Linux 6.3 physical box using virt-manager, then copying the exam and lab files and folders over to your own VMs.

The McGraw Hill YUM repository included in the VM's yum.repos.d is worthless at best and troublesome at worst (broken mirror errors galore) - if you use the VMs make sure you just disable those right away and use the proper Scientific Linux repositories.

All in all a good book, if I could do half-stars I'd give it a 3.5.

The structure of the book follows the RHCE/RHCSA Exam objectives, although Red Hat keeps changing the knowledge area it expects to test the candidates. Anyways, not book can be 100% compatible to the exam.

The book is supposed to be a supplements to the study guide. If you don't have the study guide, this book is way too thin for any concrete contents. It does contain large amount of hands-on exercises, which help improve the proficiency as the time pressure is an important factor in the real exam.

For some reason, I was not able to load the 3 VM from the CD. I had to practise on the real Red Hat box.

This is a great book and I've been using it with Michael Jang's other book (this is just an exercise book meant to be used with the other book he wrote on this).

The exercises are highly useful. I highly recommend the book.

The only thing I had a problem with is with one specific file for the virtual systems on the included DVD. The file is named "gamma.example.net-1.img" According to the book, it contains some additional resources like for when you want to make an rpm, among other things. The problem I had, I could not mount the drive because while the partition was listed, it would not recognize any file system on that single partition.

What was the impact? Probably not much. All of the virtual systems work fine. I did have to adjust the MAC address for the virtual systems (he mentions that in his book and gives respectable advice). I made sure the MAC matched in the /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules file compared to the ifcfg-ethX files.

NOTE: the information below is for the author Michael Jang. I noticed he replied to another purchaser of this book. This is the the specifics I encountered when attempting to use the one file "gamma.example.net-1.imge" file

Hello Mr Jang,

First, I have been using your books for a while and appreciate your hard work. I have recommended them to others. I'm not the person you replied to - but I thought I'd mention the issue with the practice VM I found.

I had issues after importing the disk (would never mount, details below) for the disk named "gamma.example.net-1.img" which of course is just the 1GB secondary disk, not the primary disk. I am highly familiar with KVM, I have used it for years at home and also use it at my workplace.
