RHCSA Exam Study Guide

Welcome to my RHCSA study guide. Here you will find answers to your questions regarding the RHCSA exam as well as my RHCSA book reviews, RHEL 6 documentation and other resources.

What is the RHCSA anyway?

Red Hat Certified System Administrator (RHCSA) was launched in November 2010. It replaces the old Red Hat Certified Technician (RHCT) qualification.

The RHCSA exam (EX200) is 100% performance-based, coming after a review of the knowledge and skills required daily by today’s system administrators.

Since 2010, the RHCSA has been made a prerequisite for those taking the Red Hat Certified Engineer (RHCE) qualification.

Though the RHCSA certification is still relatively new, it is likely to gain more prestige with employers over time. Being able to work with the latest RHEL6 will soon be a requirement for many jobs involving Red Hat systems. As the new Red Hat qualifications are based on RHEL6, this gives you all the more reason to get started with the RHCSA and on the road to the RHCE!
