A couple of weeks ago, I took the Linux Foundation Certified System Administrator exam.

One interesting thing about this exam is that the participant decides which flavor and version of Linux he wants to use for the test. The reality is that the Linux flavor changes very little on the tasks, but it puts the test-taker in a more comfortable situation due to the OS familiarity.

Overall I think the exam is pretty straightforward both in the way questions are formed and solving them.

I would suggest this exam to anyone who would like to demonstrate his ability to perform essential Linux tasks. This exam has other options, such as the Red Hat Certified System Administrator, but the Linux Foundation exam is independent of Linux vendors. The Linux Foundation exam independence might be an advantage or disadvantage based on personal needs and preferences.
