Red Hat Certified Engineer (RHCE) 7 EX300 Study Guide

Red Hat Certified Engineer (RHCE) Study Guide Video Course

RHCE Video Course

Looking to pass your RHCE exam? Look no further! I’ve created an RHCE video course and published it on Udemy.

This course will prepare you for the Red Hat Certified Engineer (RHCE) exam (EX300) by expanding your Linux skills with clear explanations and easy to follow examples.

The lessons will walk you through each exam objective and show you practical examples in Linux that you can follow along with in your own lab environment.

We first begin by showing you how to set up the lab environment, and then jump straight into the practical examples. Each lesson will conclude with a list of important things that you need to remember for the exam, including specific commands and locations to inbuilt documentation that may be referred to during the exam.

By the end of the course, you will know how to complete everything needed for the exam and be prepared to succeed!

The course is normally $25, however for readers of my website you can pick it up for 20% off by using the coupon ‘ROOTUSER’, or by simply clicking on any of the links on this page which should automatically apply the discount.

RHCE Study Guide

The rest of this page is a directory that links to posts I have done that cover the official objectives in the Red Hat Certified Engineer (RHCE) 7 exam. Basically if you need to know detailed information on any of the objectives below simply click the link for further information. I created these posts while studying for the RHCE EX300 exam myself, I passed it with a score of 281/300.

The official objectives for the RHCE 7 exam can be found here and are covered below.

The RHCE assumes that you are familiar with all content in the RHCSA, you can view the RHCSA exam objectives here. My RHCSA study guide covers how I studied to pass this exam with full marks.

Below you will find links to posts I have created covering different areas of the RHCE exam which will help you study for the exam.

System configuration and management

Network services

Network services are an important subset of the exam objectives. RHCE candidates should be capable of meeting the following objectives for each of the network services listed below:

Database services

While I have explained the RHCE exam objectives in each of the posts above, the video course will likely be easier to follow as it allows me to actually show you how to complete everything.

  1. I’ve added a link to your blog on my page as a valuable RHCE resource.

  2. I just realised that you haven’t passed the EX300 exam yet. Have you tried it, or are you still studying?

  3. I really like your site and I’m using it for my own studies. How long did it take for you to prepare for the rhce exam?

    • Thanks, glad you’ve found the information useful! I wrote these posts over the period of almost a year and took breaks in between, however I probably spent 1-2 months studying continually prior to actually taking the exam.

  4. excellent material, congrats for the hard work.

  5. Hi Jarrod, I’m interested in your RHCE Udemy course. I noticed some of the reviews have said that the course was fast, have you or do you plan to address this? Thanks in advance for your response.

    • Hey, it is a little fast paced I suppose. I can’t really address it without redoing the entire video course, which I do not plan on currently doing. They are videos, so you can always slow them down, watch them again, and pause as needed to take something in. I believe Udemy also offer a 30 day refund, so if you do find out that it’s not for you then you can always go ahead with that too.

  6. I appreciate you responding my question. I have passed the RHCSA and you make a point about the lessons being videos. I will go ahead and purchase it and let you know how I do. Since you passed the RHCE can you tell me roughly what percentage of the questions are RHCSA related? It’s been two years since I passed the RHCSA version 7. Thanks Jarrod!

    • Hey no problem. It’s hard to say, I mean nothing specific from the RHCSA is tested, you’re tested against the objectives listed in the RHCE, however knowing how to do RHCSA tasks is assumed and sometimes possibly needed in order to do a RHCE task, so based on that it’s difficult for me to attempt to come up with an approximate.

  7. No problem. Thanks for the input Jarrod.

  8. Just Wow,You share excellent information & it’s handy enough.

  9. Hello if the RHCSA 3 yrs ends can we exam for RHCE or do we have to recertify for RHCSA again?
