  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.
