From the Author
This book covers every published objective in the latest two-part hands-on exam (Troubleshooting and System Maintenance; Installation and Configuration) for the Red Hat Certified Engineer credential from Red Hat. Plus it's up to date for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5. The best way to prepare for the RHCE exam is with Red Hat's prep courses, but you'll find this book an invaluable resource in your studies and afterwards on the job.
Everything you see on the RHCT exam is part of the RHCE exam. In other words, you can use this book to study for both exams. If you're studying first for the RHCT, read the Introduction. You'll find a guide to the topics to study in the book, based on the publicly available Red Hat exam prep requirements.
But more importantly, to pass the Red Hat exams, you need real-world Linux administration skills. This book can help you brush up and enhance skills in areas where you might be a bit rusty. The problem-based focus means you can use this book even after you pass the RHCE exam.
I've updated this book to the latest requirements, including tips on making Security Enhanced Linux play well with any services you may configure. There are now 16 chapters in this book, which means there are many more labs that can help you practice configuring and troubleshooting Linux.
If you're serious about passing the RHCE or RHCT exam, and can afford it, take the Red Hat courses. And read this book. As suggested by Red Hat's Exam prep guide, practice installing and configuring Red Hat Enterprise Linux. Practice installing, configuring, and activating network services. Configure scenarios that require you to debug the boot process. Configure scenarios that require you to repair network services. Practice until installing, configuring, troubleshooting, and maintaining Red Hat Enterprise Linux is second nature to you.
Thank you, and good luck!

True, the included CD is aimed at Windows PCs, but it's very easy to access the PDF files on a Linux system as well without using the Windows programs.
I would recommend this book to anyone studying for RHCE.
Having taken the exam and passed in December 2004, this release of the book is a little dated since the format of the exam changed, but the content of the book is still very relevant.
The exam no longer includes multiple choice questions, but is now entirely performance based. There is an updated version of the book which I did not buy, having already had this one for some time. It is not aimed at people who want to be taught everything, but at people with initiative and willing to go out and practice and learn by themselves. The content is still good and is well worth the price to prepare for the exam, or to work through before going on an RH300 (bootcamp) or other RedHat class.
Hands-on Guide to the Red Hat® Exams: RHCSA' and RHCE® Cert Guide and Lab Manual (Certification Guide)
What I would LOVE to see in one of these test prep books / software packages is the sorts of labs, practices and simulations similar to the actual Red Hat material.
I got this book about a month before I was scheduled to take the exam. I went through the book, doing every lab, even if I thought I knew that particular subject matter. This book covered the list of things to know on Red Hats website in depth.
With the combination of the RH300 class and this book, I was able to easily pass the RHCE on my first try. I highly recommend it to anyone prepping for the exam.
If you have enough Linux experience to resolve most OS server issues then purchasing this book for review and other items you may not do on a regular basis should enable you to pass the exam. There are more than likely items on the exam such as LVCM, NIS, and quotas that a lot of people do not use on a regular basis so this book provides good information in regards to those types of subjects.
The great thing about the exam is that a lot of it is hands on so your not required to resolve problems in a certain manner but only required to come to the correct solution.
I think the RHCE is a valuable certification to obtain for sys admins even though it has not necesarrily benefited me monetarily it has definitely expanded my knowledge base. I do know others who have gained this certification and either recieved raises at their current jobs or moved to different jobs that paid higher wages because of them having the RHCE certification.
If you read this book...and do ALL the labs (along with Red Hat's documentation and prep guide); it will prepare you for the test.
I personally _didn't_ take the class (I just took the test) and I passed using the labs in this book. However, I HIGHLY recommend taking the class if you can afford it.
