Having completed the installation of Linux on both the Raspberry Pi and the Cubietruck development boards, I am doing some planning for a study path from this point forward. I have worked with and studied Linux for many years but this year I would like to obtains some up-to date certification so I am taking a look at the paths for doing so.
So today I just want to share some Study Guides and links for two Linux Exams that I hope to take during 2015.
The following two exams can be taken under self-study with the exam itself being held at an authorized test centre, I will post a list them here at a later date .
The First exam is Lpi – 101
The objective are as follows :
Exam 101: Detailed Objectives
This is a required exam for LPIC-1 or LPI certification Level 1. It covers basic skills for the Linux professional that are common to major distributions of Linux.
Each objective is assigned a weighting value. The weights range roughly from 1 to 10 and indicate the relative importance of each objective. Objectives with higher weights will be covered in the exam with more questions.
Linux Installation and Package Management
GNU and Unix Commands
Devices, Linux Filesystems, Filesystem Hierarchy Standard
