Introduction

Welcome to the Level II study guide series for the Sair Linux and GNU Certified Engineer. This is the Apache study guide for Sair Linux and GNU Certification, Exam 3X0-202. The Apache study guide is one of the optional or elective subjects for the Sair Linux and GNU Certified Engineer (LCE) certificate.

Requirements for the Sair Linux and GNU Certified Engineer (LCE) include passing the Core Concepts and Practices exam, 3X0-201, plus three additional exams from other elective subjects. In addition to this study guide, other possible elective areas include Sendmail and mail system components, Samba and resource-sharing components, and PHP and scripting. See www.linuxcertification.com for a complete listing of available courses. Each course consists of a minimum of 32 classroom contact hours, making the LCE equivalent to an additional 128 hours of classroom contact beyond the LCA. We see achievement of the LCE to be evidence of the ability to perform as an advanced Linux systems specialist, as a system administrator supervisor, or in some other form of Linux system management.

Preparing for test content is paramount in criteria-based certification tests, and Sair takes pride in the coordination of test topics from the Knowledge Matrix, objectives, competencies, study guides, and exams. These topics specify exact criteria that the candidate must meet. The tests directly measure these topics, and results are reported with a detailed summary for each of these six areas< theory of operation, base system, shells and commands, system utilities, applications, and troubleshooting.

Each exam consists of 50 questions that can be answered, reviewed, and changed for up to 60 minutes. Typical test takers use about 45 minutes to complete the exam. Successful completion of each test requires 74 percent correct, or 37 correct answers. Unlike tests that assign a rank to a test taker relative to all other test takers, Sair emphasizes mastery of material. Results of the test directly inform the candidate of the mastery level in each area, allowing each student to focus future studies on areas of relative weakness. Prospective employers can also use the detailed summary to evaluate job applicants' or employees' areas of strength. Sair is unique in this regard. Some other certification examinations supply the test taker with only a relative score of some type, without a raw score, percentage correct, or other measure for evaluating his or her performance. The effect of this practice is to leave the test taker who fails without guidance as to how to prepare for reexamination.

Minimum Candidate Requirements

The Sair Linux and GNU tests were not designed for the novice computer user. It is assumed that the candidate has approximately two years of computer experience and has experience in the configuration of one or more operating systems. For example, the candidate should be familiar with basic hardware concepts, such as CPU, cache, memory, interface adapters, hard disks, and networks. The candidate should also be familiar with basic operating system concepts, such as booting, file access, and device drivers. Finally, the candidate should know basic commands and the use of a Unix-type editor, such as Joe, Pico, Vi, or Emacs.

Knowledge Matrix

The test is based on the Apache Knowledge Matrix shown at www.linux-certification.com. Examination topics are listed here. Note that while the major topics listed in the Knowledge Matrix will not change, some subtopics may be added as needed to update the material. Please check the Sair Web site for any additions to this list.
