RHCE Red Hat Certified Engineer Linux Study Guide 2nd Edition
Use the Amazon App to scan ISBNs and compare prices.
"Why is RHCE performance-based testing important? Well, because Linux's role and uses in the enterprise today are so important. Linux is used as core infrastructure for web and ISP services; for workhorse networking servers running DNS, ftp, HTTP, DHCP; databases, and other mission-critical applications, or acting as a firewall." - Certification Magazine"

Here's an example.. When he introduces the POP protocol, he tells the reader that it stands for Point of Presence as opposed to Post Office Protocol, come on now. I was looking for a book to help prepare me for the RHCE, but now, I don't trust any information that comes from this book, and I would not recommend it to anyone who is even the slightest bit unfamiliar with Linux or UNIX.
Since I have worked with Linux systems, I can tell the mistakes, and there are many. It is a waste to even try to get something out of this book. I have since purchased another book, so let's see how that one does.
Also all teh topics are handled in a very shallow manner.
It is clear that the author himself does not understand well about MBR, disks, IRQ s etc.
It has all the symptoms of being written by a technician rather than a technical author.
lilo : completely unclear about the different error messages.
mbr : says each disk partition will have an MBR
chapters on installation is useless.
Overall Barkakati book is hundred times useful.
Shame that I didn t know before spending money.
