For years, certifications in the Information Technology world have help job candidates to demonstrate their skills to potential employers.

In the Linux world this is as true as in any other area, with businesses primarily looking for certified candidates to fill available vacancies. In other words, certifications are a proven way of gaining an advantage when applying for a job.

Linux Foundation's LFCS and LFCE Certification Preparation Guide

Linux Foundation’s LFCS and LFCE Certification Preparation Guide

Since August 2014 you don’t have to travel to a testing center and spend a lot of money in associated expenses to take a certification exam.

Thanks to the Linux Foundation, you can aspire to a world-class certification by taking a monitored on-line exam from the comfort of your own home.

The Linux Foundation Certified System administrator (LFCS) exam is more suited for individuals with intermediate level, whereas the LFCE (Engineer) exam is targeted at people with significant experience with network services and with a vast knowledge of system administration.

We at Tecmint.com have put together 66 chapters covering the topics required in both exams and reviewed them taking into consideration the many comments we have received over the last 3+ years.

Also, we do our best to keep the book updated with the latest modifications that have been made to the domain competencies of both exams. With the last revision of this material in January 2019, we have taken into account version 3.18 of the domains and competencies.

This list came into effect on April 10, 2018, as announced by the Linux Foundation.

What’s inside this eBook?

We are now pleased to present to you those 66 exam objectives with 500+ pages in this ebook (PDF format). That was a constantly-repeated request over that same period – you spoke, and we listened!

    To all Users,

    This is to inform you that, with the last revision of this material in January 2019, we have taken into account version 3.18 of the domains and competencies – and updated the LFCS and LFCE book with 66 chapters covering the topics required in both the exams.

    This list came into effect on April 10, 2018, as announced by the Linux Foundation.

    You can buy these books here: https://www.tecmint.com/linux-foundation-lfcs-lfce-certification-exam-book/

    • Husam says:

        @Husam,

        Just sent you updated version of LFCE book. Please do give your review about this new version here..

        • Francisco Clemente says:

          Hi, I bought the book in November, I don´t know if is the update versión. Can you send me a copy of the new versión?

        • Husam says:

          To be honest, some of the subjects are the same on tecmint.com for example chapter 33 can’t be the preparation of an advanced exam not even intermediate exam

          • Ravi Saive says:

            @Husam,

            The chapters on tecmint.com are outdated and haven’t updated since long time, I suggest you to purchase book which is updated as on Jan 19th 2019..

    • Joakim says:

      Hi Ravi,

      I bought the older version of lfcs-lfce complete and then I bought the new version but lfce only since I did not know you’re sending the new versions to those who already bought old version.

      I don’t want the money back and ask for the new lfcs/lfce as I like supporting your efforts, but would it be possible to forward me the complete revised lfcs/lfce version of the ebook?

      I’m yet to take the LFCE second time (failed the first time) so will leave a review once I’m done taking the test, but what I’m seeing is that the revised version of your LFCE has around 95% of the exam covered so the review will very likely be favorable.

  10. Chilu says:

    Ok. It appears that I also got the May 2018 Revised book. Is there an updated version after this? May I kindly obtain the updated copy.Thank you in advance.
