LPIC 101

John Little Profile: Xjlittle

Well I finally decided to go ahead and start the LPIC certification process. Today I took the LPIC 101 (first test) and passed with a score of 650

For those of you who don’t know LPIC stands for Linux Professional Institute Certification. There are three levels of certification: Level 1, 2 and 3. The test that I took was the first of two for the LPIC 1 certification.

I fully intend to follow through all the way through LPIC 3. You certainly learn many things when studying for these tests.

The study guide that I used the most was Exam Cram 2, LPIC 1 by Ross Brunson. This book covers study guides for both the LPIC 101 and 102. It also includes sample tests that can be loaded on either a Linux or Windows computer. The electron version has both a training and testing scenario. There are also 10 practice question at the end of each chapter and then a 60 question written test for both LPIC 101 and 102. I highly recommend this book.

So rather than sitting in front of the TV or Xbox take some time to earn yourself a certification. You’ll be glad that you did.
