LPIC1 & CompTIA Linux+ Intro

00:00:00

Hello, and welcome to CBT nuggets course for the LPIC1 and CompTIA Linux+ exams for certification. Now, in order to get LPIC1 certified or CompTIA Linux+ certified you need to take these two tests, Exam 101 and Exam 102. This is exam 101 that we're going to be doing right now. And the really cool thing is that if you're

00:00:26

going to get certified for one, you can opt to get certified for both because this 101 test for the CompTIA Linux+ certification and exam 101 for the LPIC1 certification are the exact same materials. So you can take it once and get certified for both. It's really great. Same thing with the exam 102, but we'll have to do that at some later time. But first of all,

00:00:50

I want to show you exactly how I go about teaching things. This is where I would put the topic for the specific objective for the LPIC1 CompTIA exam. For now, this is just a welcome. So welcome, this is a smiley face because there's a smiley face there. And over here, I always put the weight and that's

00:01:12

because what they've done is they've said, Okay, this particular section, or this objective is weighted, like from a number one to five, alright? Now, the intro you're not going to be quizzed on the intro. So there's a weight of zero, but anywhere between

00:01:26

a one and a five, depending on how much information they're going to test you on, on that specific objective. Okay, so if it's a weight of five maybe you want to pay extra special close attention because it's going to be weighted heavily on the test that you're scored on.

00:01:41

Okay? So, there's not really a whole lot I need to show you; I'm going to teach you as we go along. But, again, this exam 101 for LPIC1 and LXO-101 for CompTIA Linux+, you get two in one, alright? You can get both certifications if you finish both of these exams, alright? So, anyway, that's it, let's get down to business. If you're

00:02:03

curious what I look like- that's what I look like. I'm actually three-dimensional in real life, but, and maybe now I have a little less hair. But anyway, my name is Shawn Powers and I'm looking very forward to going through exam 101 with you, and, hopefully, you decide to continue on and get the course for exam 102. Without further ado, let's get on to our next nugget.
