I’ve got twenty years of IT experience. Because I’ve decided to take several certifications starting with RHCSA (Red Hat entry level), RHCE and VCP5-DCV (VMware entry level), I’ve found that creating a website to store useful informations was a good idea.

You will find here some tutorials and tips about these subjects.

I just wanted to say thanks for putting all of this information out here. It is the best singular resource I have found of the internet for studying for my RHCE(especially for putting together a study guide). I passed the RHCSA last summer with the help of Michael Jang’s book, and am currently using that book plus this website for the RHCE. I hope to take the exam in June.
Thanks again,



The tasks of the day are awesome! Can you please post more of similar practice questions?
It helps to see how much time it takes for me for each lab. I train to make tasks faster and faster, with different names\tweaks, etc’

If you could make more RHCSA sample questions that would be awesome πŸ™‚


Thks for the great resource. Although i have the RHCE it’s a very nice resource that have been good to have when I’ve taken my exam. Very very good job.


Hello, I am really enjoying your site, it has helped me tremendously along with my other study material for the RHCSA/ RHCE. I just wanted to thank you for the great website.


I’m RHCE from december 2013. I’ve found this website and I think it is very useful. There are many news about new RHEL 7. I’ve to say thank to you πŸ™‚


Great site and and a valuable resource while preparing for the RHCE on RHEL7. Just wanted to point out that the EX200 and EX300 objectives have been updated on the redhat site.

For example on EX300 SAMBA now includes Kerberos authentication and on EX200 LUKs has been removed . Thanks


Best site ever for reference and RHEL certification prep !


Thank you for creating this blog! It is the most complete and useful I’ve ever found πŸ™‚
I would like to certificate on RHCSA7 (and RHCE later on). I’m looking for a good book that will help me to prepare for EX200/EX300 v7 exams like the Michael Jangβ€˜s “RHCSA/RHCE Red Hat Linux Certification Study Guide” (Sixth Edition) was supposed to be for RHEL6.
Could you please recommend one good book, if any, to study for RHEL7’s ex200/ex300 exams? Thank you!


You have done a great job. I know how hard is to keep updated such a vast area of IT information. I will try to support you as much as I can and help you make the website even better.


Just what I need! Thank u!!!

Just wanted to say a big thank you, I passed my RHCSA last week in part thanks to your site. Now on to RHCE but I am also possibly thinking about CCNA and VCP5-DCV as well. But I am not sure which one to look at first. I work in a large enterprise environment that has just invested in VCE infrastructure so the VCE-CIAE could also be a goal. I have worked as a sysadmin for 4 years (sort of got in through a back door) and not to sure which way to go now. I would like to focus… Read more »

Hi CertDepot,

Great website, I used it a lot for my RHCE preparation so thanks. I’ve done a youtube video on how to setup a RHCE lab on VMware workstation, it would be great if you could give it a mention.


Thanks very much


Thanks for a great website. I took both the RH124 and RH134 week-long classes, and bought Sander Van Vugt’s exam prep book, but I also learned a lot from the sample exam and discussion here. Took my RHCSA exam yesterday and scored a 300! That’s right 300 – I was astounded. Will be coming back here in a few months to prep for my RHCE!


Really like your site! You have lots of really good info and links to great resources. I just wish I would have found you sooner πŸ™‚


Thank you for this website πŸ™‚ I would like to donate to the author but do not know how? Suggest you place a paypal donate button on your website somewhere. I passed the RHCE exam back in May and this site was inspirational in my studies. I used many resources including Sander Van Vugt LiveLessons, A. Ghori book, CertDepot, and many other resources. The test was very hard and I scored a 86%.



Hope you’re doing well. I was thinking that you should start a new topic regarding OpenStack on your website. And you should create an open discussion forum where everyone studying OpenStack can contribute and help each other with day to day problems in learning this technology and share resources and solutions.
Thank you =)


First of all I really REALLY liked your site. Simply SUPERB! and AWESOME! Rich in contents. You deserve a special recognition. The contents are so rich – can’t believe how I never saw or heard of it before. I bookmarked it. Additionally, if you would like to start any additional topics like, OpenStack and AWS/MS-Azure/Google-GCE would be great additions. Just adding my 2 cents. And, I would be able to contribute to those topics, to what ever extent I can. Please contact me for this if you need any help. Thanks.


I’d like to give feedback on https://sdm.mit.edu/?id=certdepot-EX200&exam=rhel7-get-started-random-number-generator/
Instead of “cp /usr/lib/systemd/system/rngd.service /etc/systemd/system” then edit, then “systemctl daemon-reload”, you can do “systemctl edit –all rngd.service” which does all these three steps.

Thank you for this great site.


HI CertDepot,

I referenced this site for my RHCSA exam, and passed! Great site!

I have just ‘ done’ the 14 questions for the RHCSA on this site. Thx! It made me think as they were slightly different to the self-study course I have just completed from icttrainingen.nl . In the end I stored the answers to the 14 questions in a text document – partly because it was unclear to me how I could enter multiple lines (of my answer) in that single small window. So I have questions: 1. is there a way I could place that txt file anywhere and have someone provide feedback? 2. about the ex200 exam: is it… Read more »

Have you set an email notifications already? There was a problem with it, when somebody answer to my comment, I do not remember in which topic it was. πŸ™‚

Hi Certdepot, First of all I would really like to thank you for making such a great website to help us student to prepare for Red Hat certification. The way you put information here is very great. I have intermediate knowledge about Linux and working in Linux domain. I have one question for you, as I want to go for Red Hat Certification. Can I do the self study by using any of the below books and can pass the exam. Asghar Ghori’s book Sander van Vugt’s book Jang/Orsaria’s book Andrew Mallett’s book Or I have to join authorized Red… Read more »
