here is the scenario,

the company i work for are considering migrating to linux, i have little knowledge about linux but has made me interested about it. I am thinking about getting certified however all the books i see does not state whether the material is official linux. i dont know which distro we will be using the possibilities could be redhat or suse. If anyone can help with this that would be appreciated as i am a novice.

Hi,

One thing that can be confusing is LPI certification is across the board.  It is not related to one particular distribution, unlike an MCSE which is directly related to Microsoft.  So in that sense there is no "offical" study material.

The book I've been using is LPI Linux Certification, published by O'Reilly.  But this is not quite up to date, as in the preface it talks about how the exams have changed slightly.  Not that the material is irrelevant, but that the order of the material in the book does not relate to the exams, as they have apparently moved material from one exam to another.

Another good source of material is http://www-106.ibm.com/developerworks/edu/l-dw-linuxlpi1-i.html
This free, though you do have to register for  access.  You can then download each section as a pdf if you wish or just do the study on line.

One more is: http://www.icon.co.za/~psheer/book/index.html.gz
This is a whole book on-line (you can actually buy a hard copy if you wish, but the author has also allowed it to be put on line), so the page might take a bit longer to load than expected.  This provides more than you need for the LPI, but despite it's age, it does give a good grounding in Linux.

If you want a good distribution to try Mepis (http://www.mepis.org or http://www.mepis.org/book/view/1462) is well worth the download.  You can run it from the CD to check out all your hardware and if you're happy you can then install it on your harddrive.

Neil.

hi, I'm new to Linux. I'm planning to get certified. What do you recommend?

1) how long does this certification last for? 3 years, 2 years? etc...

2) is this vendor-based? or non-vendor-based?

3) how valuable in the market place. Great Demand?  etc..

4) is this they type of cert that will fade away...?

5) should I tackle the RHCE or go for the LPI? which one has more credibility, or more accepted?

6) do you also need to be a UNIX expert to do linux. Suppose I just have linux, would you be hired based on just linux alone..


Thanks....
