The following questions will help you measure your understanding of the material presented in this book.
As discussed in the introduction, the RHCE exam consists of two different, equally weighted sections: Troubleshooting and System Maintenance (2.5 hours) and Installation and Configuration (3.0 hours). There are RHCE and RHCT components to each section. To earn the RHCE, you need to meet all of the following requirements. To earn the RHCT, you need to meet the noted RHCT requirements.
On the Troubleshooting and System Maintenance section:
Successfully complete all five RHCT-level problems within the first hour.
Answer enough RHCE requirements (three of five) to earn an overall section score of 80 (of 100).
On the Installation and Configuration section:
Earn a score of 70 or higher on the RHCT components.
Address enough issues correctly to get a grade of 70 on the RHCE components.
Both exams are "closed book." However, you are allowed to use any documentation, such as man pages, that you can find on the Red Hat Enterprise Linux computer. You are allowed a pen or pencil and paper to make any notes that you might need.
If you pass the RHCT components of both sections, you'll qualify as a Red Hat Certified Technician. If you pass the RHCT and RHCE components of both exams, you will also become a Red Hat Certified Engineer.
In most cases, there is no one solution, no single method to solve a problem or install a service. There are a nearly infinite number of options with Linux, so I can't cover all possible scenarios.
