From the Author
This book is divided into two sections -- RHCSA and RHCE -- based on the exam and learning objectives. The RHCSA section covers tasks that are intended for implementation on a single system, while the RHCE section covers those that require two or more networked systems. The book has twenty-five chapters in total and are organized keeping in view the four learning objectives mentioned above.
The RHCSA and RHCE certification exams are hands-on exams presented in electronic format on a live desktop computer running Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 with one (RHCSA) or two (RHCE) virtual machines. The exam objectives are covered in sufficient detail in the chapters throughout the book.
I have attempted to explain the concepts in an easy-to-understand manner supported by step-by-step instructions on how to perform tasks and implement services. I have included numerous exercises, which I actually ran on test systems. My emphasis has been more on the practical aspect to align with the nature of the Red Hat exams as well as the other learning objectives. I have provided requirements in the first chapter to help build a lab for practicing the exercises, challenge labs, and sample exams while studying the book. This book has:
No. of Exercises: 115+
No. of Review Questions / Answers: 500+
No. of Do-It-Yourself (DIY) Challenge Labs: 70+
No. of Sample RHCSA Exams: 2
No. of Sample RHCE Exams: 2
I hope this book will prove to be an invaluable resource for your exam preparation as well as learning RHEL 7.
Good luck on the road to achieving the RHCE certification....

Not only is this great for passing the test, but Mr. Ghori explains things beautifully clearly and concisely. There were a variety of concepts that I sort of knew beforehand that after reading this book are crystal clear. I also had the previous version of this book, for RHEL5, and found that if I needed really good details on how to do something, I was more likely to find them in this book than anywhere else. I love knowing the details of how things work, and this book provides them.
After taking both courses and then attempting to read this book I can point out pretty significant differences in the course plan vs the books plan. The book seems dip a toe into red hat by teaching you basics of file modification, file tree layout and where everything is (which is consistent with the first part of the RHCSA I class). Then it jumps right into virtualization without teaching you anything networking. This tends to be a common theme in the book where you learn something basic in the multiple ways a task can be done. Then it shows you a bunch of deeper tasks that will be learned later but gives no explanation as to why you are running the more in depth command.
I can see how the book is setting the basics of the OS then building the Virtualization on top which in my guess would be closer to the practical as you would have to do that in an early step but covering some of the other basics then expanding would be wiser for someone who is entering with minimal or zero knowledge.
I have yet to take the exam however comparing this book to the outline and documentation of the RHCSA I and II classes its much more confusing. I have also noticed a few commands have errors in them or aren't properly laid out and cause errors.
I bought this book on the recommendation of a friend who just passed the RHCE exam. I must say it was money well spent. The author have the excellent grip on the subject material. He provides plenty of details on the commands with examples.At the end of each chapter there are a good number of practice labs. In each chapter he provide exam tips that can be life savers. He has divided the book in two parts one for RHCSA and the other for RHCE and as you go through the book your knowledge keeps on growing in a systematic way. Booth of these exams are not easy but if you go through the book and do all the labs you will pass them .
I must give Mr Ghori five stars for this excellent work and i would recommend this book to any one who is serious about passing the Red hat exams .
I wish to see more Virtualization, Virtual Cluster.

I can't recall any typos or errata which sometimes can leave you utterly confused in other books, so really recommended.
I love the typography too.
My only criticism - and the reason it only gets 4 stars - is because the screen shots are very difficult to make out.
I don't know whether it is just my copy, but some of them are pretty unreadable.
Now I almost finish reading it, so I give my comments based on my reading experience.
(1) It's the best material to learn or review RHEL/CentOS 7 system knowledge.
(2) Every technical background is clearly and concisely demonstrated.
(3) The exercises are practical and in detail.
(4) Due to the limited pages, other books need to reference if you need an in-depth understanding of some topics such as DNS, Kerberos.
(5) The author, Mr. Ghori, is so friendly and approachable. Thank you!
Questo testo invece è organizzato molto bene e tratta tutti gli argomenti inerenti alla certificazione Red Hat.
Non è un testo di teoria - non lo deve essere infatti - tuttavia ogni argomento è introdotto molto bene, lasciando eventuali approfondimenti al lettore. Anche l'inglese è abbastanza scorrevole e facilmente comprensibile.
Anche l'arpproccio è abbastanza in linea con le metodologie di apprendimento "Europee", evitando continue ripetizioni. Generalemente gli argomenti vengono introdotti nei primi capitoli e approfonditi nei capitoli dedicati ad essi.
Ci sono molti esercizi pratici, la maggior parte di essi richiede la configurazione di un'ambiente di virtualizzazione. Per chi dovrà sostendere l'esame di certificazione consiglio di dedicare un PC per l'installazione di una Centos 7 con KVM e configurare almeno tre o quattro macchine virtuali proprio per essere in grado di eseguire tutte le esercitazioni. Mal che vada si può usare VirtualBox, ma cosi si "perde" la possibilità di esercitarsi con KVM.
Aggiornamento: Settembre 2016
Abbasso di una stella il voto perchè dopo aver studiato su questo testo e averlo confrontato con quello di Sander Van Vugt devo sinceramente ammettere che quest'ultimo è superiore.
Il problema principale è alcuni argomenti come NFS con Kerberos e AutoFs sono proprio trattati in modo approssimativo lasciando eventuali problemi e/o approfondimenti al lettore.
Sebbene rimanga un ottimo testo, non credo fornisca tutti gli strumenti necessari ad affrontare e superare l'esame RHCE, è "necessario" affinacare lo studio di questo testo ad altri testi e risorse su Internet.
Il consiglio per chi ha la possibilità di investire 60 e passa eruro e quello di acqusitare entrambi i testi. Per chi invece non ha la possibilità di farlo consiglio il testo di Van Vugt
