CompTIA Linux+ Powered by Linux Professional Institute Study Guide


Why should you learn about Linux? It's a fast-growing operating system, and it is inexpensive and flexible. Linux is also a major player in the small and mid-size server field, and it's an increasingly viable platform for workstation and desktop use as well. By understanding Linux, you'll increase your standing in the job market. Even if you already know Windows or Mac OS and your employer uses these systems exclusively, understanding Linux will give you an edge when you're looking for a new job or you're looking for a promotion. For instance, this knowledge will help you make an informed decision about if and when you should deploy Linux.

The Computing Technology Industry Association (CompTIA) has developed its Linux+ certification as an introductory certification for people who want to enter careers involving Linux. The exam is meant to certify that an individual has the skills necessary to install, operate, and troubleshoot a Linux system and is familiar with Linux-specific concepts and basic hardware.

The purpose of this book is to help you pass the Linux+ exams (LX0-103 and LX0-104), updated in 2015. Because these exams cover basic Linux installation, configuration, maintenance, applications, networking, and security, those are the topics that are emphasized in this book. You'll learn enough to get a Linux system up and running and to configure it for many common tasks. Even after you've taken and passed the Linux+ exams, this book should remain a useful reference.
What Is Linux?

Linux is a clone of the Unix operating system (OS) that has been popular in academia and many business environments for years. Formerly used exclusively on large mainframes, Unix and Linux can now run on small computers, which are actually far more powerful than the mainframes of just a few years ago. Because of its mainframe heritage, Unix (and hence also Linux) scales well to perform today's demanding scientific, engineering, and network server tasks.

Linux consists of a kernel, which is the core control software, and many libraries and utilities that rely on the kernel to provide features with which users interact. The OS is available in many different distributions, which are collections of a specific kernel with specific support programs.
Why Become Linux Certified?

Several good reasons to get your Linux certification exist. There are four major benefits:

The exams were designed with the needs of Linux professionals in mind. Surveys of Linux administrators were performed to learn what they actually needed to know to do their jobs.

The exams have been extensively tested and validated using psychometric standards. The result is an ability to discriminate between competent administrators and those who must still learn more material.

CompTIA is an organization that doesn't itself market any Linux distribution. This fact removes the motivation to create an exam that's designed as a way to market a particular distribution.

Major players in the Linux world support the exams.
How to Become Certified

The certification is available to anyone who passes the two required exams: LX0-103 and LX0-104 (often referred to as simply 103 and 104). You don't have to work for a particular company. It's not a secret society.

Pearson VUE administers the exam. The exam can be taken at any Pearson VUE testing center. If you pass, you will get a certificate in the mail saying that you have passed.

To register for the exam with Pearson VUE, call (877) 619-2096 or register online at www.vue.com . However you do it, you'll be asked for your name, mailing address, phone number, employer, when and where you want to take the test (that is, which testing center), and
