Reviewed by Kathryn Bennett for Readers' Favorite RHCSA & RHCE Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7: Training and Exam Preparation Guide (EX200 and EX300), Third Edition by Asghar Ghori is a guide that has been designed to help you update your knowledge of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7. Within the pages of this self study guide, you will find step by step exercises and challenges labs. The chapters cover everything you need to know including installation, virtualization, security, shell scripting, interface configuration, and networking services. The first thing you need to know about this book is that it is not for those who have no experience at all in Linux and Red Hat; you do need a basic knowledge. With that said, this is a fantastic guide and will help you update all of your working knowledge. I found the book was not only informative but it flowed well, and the way everything is explained made it very easy to work my way through and do all of the challenges at the end of the chapters. I have read several self study guides for Linux in the past, and none of them seemed very well laid out or thought out; they just crammed as much information into you as they could. That's not the case with this book - it gives you time to digest everything you are learning. If you are looking for a tool that will give you the confidence you need for your exams, this book is it. I highly recommend author Asghar Ghori for making a very user friendly study guide.
Reviewed by Gisela Dixon for Readers' Favorite RHCSA & RHCE Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7: Training and Exam Preparation Guide (EX200 and EX300), Third Edition by Asghar Ghori is a very thorough, comprehensive book written for anyone wishing to get ready for a Linux certification, or anyone who wishes to learn and master Linux. The book is divided into two sections: RHCSA section that covers all learning required for a single system, and RHCE section that covers all learning required for two or more networked systems. The book follows a sequential order, starting with the installation and configuration of RHEL7, basic tools and commands, working with files and permissions, virtualization, configuring the kernel, managing users and groups, and continues with the networking components such as managing firewalls and network interfaces, IPv6 and routing, hosting websites and mail configuration, etc. Not only does the book include learning required for those wishing to pass these two exams (RHCSA and RHCE), but it can also be used simply as a textbook and reference guide by students and professionals alike. There are also review questions and answers at the end of each chapter with a lab challenge. The book ends with a few sample exams and a very detailed glossary. Written by Asghar Ghori, an experienced and accomplished Red Hat Certified professional working in the industry for several years, the book is astonishingly detailed and, at the same time, easy to follow. The book is a self-study guide that does not necessarily require a teacher. The language is clear and easy to follow, and the book is extremely well organized. All in all, this is an excellent book on Linux that even a lay person or a beginner can read and learn from, and is an extremely useful study guide.
