4.0 out of 5 stars A very good place to start 4 Feb 2006
By A Customer
A few warnings before you buy this book:
1. You will need time to study it. I had about 10 weeks. There's a lot to learn! Don't buy it the week before you do the exam.
2. You have to have a machine you can scratch and rebuild over and over again. Just reading the book is only a small part of the story.
3. This book was written for RHEL 3, or possibly older versions, and the course is now based on RHEL 4. You will need to use the course synopsis from Red Hat to work out what has changed (e.g. SE Linux, mdadmn for RAID, Xorg replacing XFree86).
4. I felt that the emphasis of the course has changed somewhat. More than can be explained by just the change of RHEL version.
Having said all that, I went from someone who (just) failed the on-line pre-reqs test to a first time pass in 10 weeks. I'm very glad I bought the book, and would recommend it to anyone planning on the taking the exam.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth reading 18 Aug 2005
I bought this book to study prior to taking a 4 day RHCT course and the exam and it very useful.
The explanations and the labs went a long way towards preparing me for the well taught and briskly paced Redhat training (which I'd definitely recommend if you want to take the exam).
Some topcs aren't as given as much emphasis as in the course and vice versa but by studying this book and playing around with the labs for about a 4 weeks you'll make the whole experience a lot easier on yourself.
Recommended by one happy RHCT!

3.0 out of 5 stars Might as well buy the RHCE book by jang (4th edition) 3 Dec 2004
By Mike S. - Published on Amazon.com
I bought the RHCE book (jang 4th edition) and used it to study for the RHCE exam. Because the exam encompasses both the RHCT abd RHCE exam, i thought i could use the RHCT book as a way to refine skills geared strictly towards just the RHCT portion of the exam. This book really is just a subset (cut and paste) of the RHCE book from jang, with a very few changes. You are better off just getting the RHCE book by jang and using it to study for both the RHCT and RHCE. The skills you learn, although not super in depth, will force you to learn or relearn key concepts that will potentially be on the exam.

I bought this book knowing it was for an older exam. It was helpful in getting up to speed on Red Hat Linux and related variants.

5.0 out of 5 stars More than just an Exam Cram 24 Nov 2004
By John Matlock - Published on Amazon.com
The rise of Red Hat has been marvelous to watch. Starting with a 'free' operating system, they have produced an integrated software system that rivals the big kid on the block. With this kind of success, comes more success. Now you see job ads for people who know Red Hat. And with this comes certifications. How do you prove that you've even typed 'ls' into your system.

This book is at once a study guide and a detailed overview of the Enterprise version of Linux. Yes, it will tell you what is going to be on the test, and the title and cover copy emphasises this. But the book is more than that, it also explains the why and wherefores of the operating system. It has real world exercises and instructions that cover what the serious user needs to know. The book could easily have been rewritten slightly and called something like "Everything you Need to know." It is not a beginners book.
