Has anyone taken this cert? Or rather, does anyone know a thing about this cert? ie. how worthwhile it would be to get it, key areas on the test, words of advice, whatever. I'm thinking that this is the next cert I wanna get so I can say "Hey, I know more than just windows over here!".

The more people that are willing to say that you know your stuff the better off you will be when you go to find a job, its like having a bunch of friends vouching for your that your a good guy. the More postivie input, the more likely that their going to think your a good guy

I already got the Sybex Linux+ study guide, and the linux+ Certification Bible off of edonkey the other day. The latter had a practice test that I scored 85% on with out reviewing shit. I was weak with the lp commands, and that's about it. If that is really an indication of what the linux+ is gonna be like than it's as much of a joke as A+ is (Don't bother arguing here, yes A+ is important, but I still think it's junk).

But either way, I think I made up my mind. I want this cert by the end of the month. Let's see if I can back my mouth up now.
