    The RHCE was a tough exam.

    You have to accomplish a lot during a very short amount of time. Therefore, you need to be comfortable enough with the services/commands you’ll be working with that you don’t spend time in the man pages. I’d also recommend that you have a deep understanding of what you’re doing instead of just following along with the labs you use to prepare. You will be thrown curve balls.

    When I took the exam a couple years ago, RedHat offered a monthly subscription to a virtual lab environment that was the same network setup as the actual exam. You could use this to practice setting up services and configuring them. It was really cheap too and well worth the money I spent.

    Beyond that, think how you can best manage your time and have a plan for that going into the test. If you go in thinking you’re just gonna check off the boxes one by one as you work down the page, you’ll likely run out of time. Multi-tasking is KEY!!!

    well my training faculty also said me that time management is the key,as you said i am focusing more on understanding the internal working,but as a beginner what i am feeling is while i am in the training i remember the commands i used in the class and after some time say i finished the class and went to my home and relaxed myself and when i  turn on my computer and boot in to linux,
    i couldn’t remember some of the options in the command.

    for example i learned the ls command,
    i know the functionality of the ls command,but when i look  all the attributes used along with the command,it is making me confused and i am feeling a bit tough to remember those attributes

    I would like to know when you learned these things,how you coped with those attrributes stuff and all ? ???

    what had you done to remember those command attributes? ???

    how much it costs ? also instead of paying isn’t it a good idea to configure those things inside vmware or some thing ?(just to save money ;D)
    just asking a suggestion from you

    Code:
    This is the reason for which i had opened this thread,i don't know where to find practice materials for evaluating my self,for example say i learned  the file systems and some commands in linux ,i want to evaluate myself ,to see that how much i am good at it. ;D

    Memorizing ALL the command switches isn’t necessary. You should have the most useful ones (at least to you) memorized so that you’re not constantly using man pages.

    I had to look it up b/c I didn’t remember, but you can find all you need to know about the virtual labs here:

    http://www.redhat.com/training/ways/livelabs.html

    The nice thing about the RedHat rented environment is that it is exactly as you will see it in the exam, so you can perfectly recreate anything they’ll throw at you. Honestly, though, what I did was go back through ALL the labs in my manual from class. I spent more time where I felt I was weak.

    i don’t know where to find practice materials for evaluating my self

    The best place is your class manual. Second, the RedHat website itself:

    http://www.redhat.com/training/courses/ex300/examobjective

    Third, there are a number of books available through Amazon for the RHCE. (I don’t know that I would recommend any of them, though.)

    I can’t stress enough, though, that time management is very important. Its not about the ‘perfect.’ Instead, it’s about the ‘good enough.’

    Just my cents about memorizing linux (or as a good example Ciscio IOS commands).

    It’s only possible if you use it on a semi daily/weekly basis.

    It takes time. but I see myself stuff do on linux shells and on cisco iOS that I don’t even think about it anymore. My fingers just types attributes to do the thing.

    You can’t become a linux admin in a week. That’s the whole point. It takes a lot of time and active duty  😉
