    Kewl, Jellyman. Well done. How was the test? Was it pretty much as you expected or were there surprises? (answer as best as your non-disclosure agreement allows).

    Thank you all for your congrats (Its why I do it really lol!)

    To answer some questions for you guys...

    The test was about 80% what I expected, some of it was bread and butter stuff, and some of it was just stupid in my opinion..

    I got a few questions on things like what is the best way to do things which in my opinion if you have all the options available to you the best way could have been any of them really.. it depends on how its all setup... so that kind of annoyed me..

    There were very few questions on hardware (Which is good in my opinion, leave that to the A+) but there were lots of questions on permissions, calculating the effects of them, changing them etc

    A fair few were on CLI commands such as mounting items, whilst others were about identifying parts of files for example explaining cron tables etc..

    EDIT: After a quick re-read of message I would just like to say that what I have written above, and more can be downloaded by anyone wanting to do Linux+, go to CompTIA's site and download the Linux+ pdf which tells you in quite a bit of detail what you need to know!

    The book I used to study for this is the Linux+ 2005 In Depth by Jason W. Eckert and M. John Schitka bought from Amazon... Its a fairly comprehensive book really for the beginner, I recommend it.

    Having a system or virtual machine next to it makes a pretty good learning lab, I ran with Fedora Core 2 for a while, because that is what the book makes reference to, but eventually upgraded to Fedora Core 4 because it supported my system better (Automatically sorted sound and mobility radeon graphics in my case)...
