Welcome to post 2 of my 100 day challenge. Checkout my introduction for some background.
I am in the process of revising to sit my Linux Foundation Certified System Administrator (LFCS) qualification.
Over the past few months I have come across a lot of useful information online which has helped me greatly with my revision. This post is an attempt to collate my Linux Foundation Certified System Administrator Resources it into a format that is useful for me and for you:
Links to online resources
- Computer Networking Notes – RHCE study guide. – Focused towards attaining RHCE but more than relevant here.
- Cert Depot – RHEL6 LFCS Exam Objectives – Incomplete but useful resource containing a lot of what you need to meet the objectives for the LFCS exam.
- Tuxar – LFCS – Someone elses list of materials to use when studying for LFCS certification.
- cerebrux gist – Someone’s gist I came across that seems to be a dump of what they revised when preparing for the exam.
- Tecmint LFCS – One of the most useful resources I’ve found. Covers in detail the objectives for the LFCS exam, but you will have to learn about Logical Volume Management (LVM) elsewhere as the LFCS exam objectives have removed RAID in favour of this since the author released this tutorial series.
- Lean Elatencio’s exam notes – Paired with the Tecmint series above this just about covers the entire objectives list. It is 100 pages long but well worth the read.
Links to books I’ve found useful
Yes even dead trees have a place in 2015. Of course you can just buy the ebook version. But what would the fun be in that.
- Linux Bible
- How Linux Works: What Every Superuser Should Know
- The Linux Command Line: A Complete Introduction
- Linux All-in-One For Dummies (For Dummies (Computer/Tech))
- Essential System Administration: Tools and Techniques for Linux and Unix Administration
There you have it. You don’t need to have everything in this list but definitely read the Tecmint and Elatencio’s notes above as they are invaluble. If I was going to buy a book from the list above I’d go for the Linux Bible.
Can you improve on any of the tips I’ve discussed here? If you can let me know in the comments.
