Systemnotes.org RHCE Study Guide for RHEL5
v1.0 2007/12/02It is very important to study the official objectives for any exam, as that is the only way to know whatto expect. It is not meant to replace official training courses and manuals, but is meant to help studentsquickly review, so they can determine where to focus their efforts and study in more detail.This guide is based on the official redhat objectives for the RHEL5 exam see:https://www.redhat.com/certification/rhce/prep_guide/This guide is freely available fromhttp://systemnotesorg.blogspot.comhttp://systemnotesorg.blogspot.com/2007/12/rhce-study-guide-for-rhel5.htmlFor more detailed study info on each objective see:http://systemnotesorg.blogspot.com/search/label/RHCEThis guide was prepared by looking at each objective, and asking the questions:-- What could they ask in order to test for knowledge of this objective?, or -- What kind of troubleshooting might be required?-- How can this requirement be met?Q: is used to denote possible questions, andA: for possible answers. Note that there may be more than one answer based on what the objective is, or depending whichmethod is preferred to meet the objective. Some items and ideas were taken from labs in the RHCEcourse book, and great care was taken to not give away any hints about what might be on the exam,other than what the labs and official objectives lead one to infer.
