Participation is the ONLY way to win. Start a thread that sparks lots of interest; share thoughts and experiences; help a newbie... quality is more important than quantity.

Re: [Article]-April 2007 Free Giveaway - Winner

The study guides and T-shirt arrived yesterday, and I got the vouchers sent to me a few weeks ago. The study guides are two fat ring bound books with accompanying CD's. I've decided to do the Linux+ first because the voucher expires sooner than the Security+ voucher. Also I think my security knowledge is OK, while my Linux knowledge definately needs some attention. My work manufactures a Slackware based product for which I give tech support, and I've once or twice found myself escalating issues or passing them to my colleagues because of my lack of thorough Linux knowledge.

One drawback already is that the Linux+ exam objectives haven't been updated since 2004. The course is supposed to be vendor neutral, yet it says I should install Fedora Core 2. I've got an old copy of Fedora Core 3 lying around somewhere, yet I'm inclined to just use BackTrack or Knoppix or Kubuntu to study for this. I'm sure the book I have is pertinant to the exam I'll take, and I'll still be able to carry over the principles in to the present. Linux however has developed leaps and bounds in the past 3 years and I think CompTIA should start thinking about upgrading this exam.
