The Linux+ certification from CompTIA requires a passing score on two exams. The first exam, LX0-101, consists of 60 multiple choice questions that will test knowledge of basic maintenance tasks, backup and restore, workstation installation and configuration, the Linux command line, and more. Participants will receive 90 minutes to complete this exam; it is available in English, Chinese, German, Portuguese, and Spanish. A passing score of at least 500 is required.
This exam will validate the skill base of a junior Linux administrator; it is expected that candidates will have 12 or more months of experience in this job role, or as a network, systems, database, or web administrator, in which basic IT concepts and Linux administration tasks were used and performed regularly. Additionally, the A+ and Network+ certifications should be earned before attempting this exam. Training options include eLearning courseware, live mentoring, study guides, and practice exams, and can be found on CompTIA's online marketplace.
Four sections will be found on this exam:
1. System Architecture - Participants must know how to identify and configure hardware settings, boost the system, alter runlevels, and reboot the system.
2. Linux Installation and Package Management - Participants should be able to design the hard disk, manage shared libraries, and use three types of package management: Debian, YUM, and RPM.
3. Unix and GNU Commands - The ability to work on the command line, perform basic file management, and process text streams is required.
4. Devices and Filesystems - Participants should know how to create and maintain filesystems and manage disk quotas and file permissions.
The Printable Study Guides Are Great For Those On The Go
After being told I had to take the CompTIA LX0-101: CompTIA Linux+ [Powered by LPI] Exam 1 for work, I started looking online for a program to help me in my studies. I found TestsForge during a search for help with CompTIA Exams. What a difference this program has made in my studies. The study guide can be printed out, allowing you to study anytime and anywhere you want to. I usually eat dinner at a neighborhood restaurant, so I take the study guide to read while eating instead of a paperback book. I'm getting a good meal and education at the same time! Thank you TestsForge.

it's that easy!
This course was really great. The material was concise and told me exactly what I needed to know. It was easy and great and everything went smoothly. I would not have passed without it. I wouldn't have felt so confident going into the CompTIA LX0-101: CompTIA Linux+ [Powered by LPI] Exam 1 if I hadn't study so well with these materials. I don't think I would go anywhere else to take a test. They were great, it was not too much stress and I would do it again. If you decide to use these materials you will feel the same way as I am sure everyone would-it's that easy!
