From the Author:

When I saw the changes that Red Hat announced in November of 2010, I knew that I'd have to make serious revisions for the 6th edition. When Red Hat revised those objectives again a month later, I restarted the revision process to make sure I included complete coverage of every objective.

To address the new RHCSA certification, the changes to the RHCE objectives, as well as the new features included in Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 (RHEL 6), I've rewritten and added hundreds of pages of new material. I actually had to delete a couple of hundred pages of now unrelated material from the fifth edition to make room.

Every command in this book has been tested on a RHEL 6 system. Much of this book has also been tested on the freely available Scientific Linux 6, built from RHEL 6 source code. (You don't have to buy RHEL 6 to prepare for the Red Hat exams.) While the best way to prepare for the RHCSA and RHCE exams is with Red Hat's prep courses, I hope you'll find this book to be invaluable in your studies and on the job.

The book describes how you can satisfy the latest objectives for both the RHCSA and RHCE exams. At over 1000 pages, it includes detailed descriptions on how to configure real-world systems based on those objectives. Due to the hands-on nature of the exam, the book includes 109 labs. (That's nearly double the number of labs in the fifth edition.)

Red Hat's director of certification has stated that exam tasks will be "presented electronically". To reflect this change, most lab questions and all four sample exams are available only on the CD, in the subdirectories for each chapter. (All labs in Chapter 1 and one lab in Chapter 2 are still shown in the printed book.)

When I used the fifth edition to teach a Linux course, I realized how important it is to have separate chapters for the RHCSA and the RHCE. It took a bit of extra time, but I hope you agree that it's worth it. If you want to study for the RHCSA first, focus on Chapters 1 through 9. To study for the RHCE, read Chapters 10 through 17. Every chapter includes at least 12 fill-in-the-blank review questions to help you confirm mastery of this material. In addition, Chapters 1 and 2 include instructions on how to use Red Hat's KVM software to create the virtual machines to set up test scenarios for both exams.

As suggested by the RHCSA and RHCE objectives, the "performance-based testing means that candidates must perform tasks similar to what they must perform on the job". Security, especially SELinux, is more important than ever. This book describes the RHCSA-level tools needed to configure KVM, to automate installations, to customize how a system boots, to set up different filesystems, to administer users, to update packages, and more. Of course, it also addresses the RHCE skills associated with servers for e-mail, web sites, Samba, NFS, FTP, NTP, and Logging. For both exams, you'll learn to configure firewalls and SELinux in all the detail that you'll need.

Thank you, and good luck!
