In both the RHCDS and RHCA, EX423 can be substituted with EX318.


Also, in your lists above, RH300 should be replaced with RH302. RH302 is the exam alone, RH300 is the RHCE Rapid Track Course with the RHCE exam included.


Now I know what you're thinking next ... price.  $749 for the RHCE alone
is bad enough, another few grand?  Yikes!  Right?

Even worse, RH302 is now $799!


Current RHCE holders can update their RHCE exam for half price ($399).


All-in-all, anyone who can pass EX442 gets my vote.  And I've been
tuning Linux for enterprises (not just playing at home or, installing
web servers) since late 1994.  I failed that one, after having RH442
(only by 3%, but still).  I recommend the RH442 to everyone, even those
that don't believe in certs -- it's an outstanding class (and you can
sit it without the RHCE -- only need the RHCE to take the EX442 exam).

I agree .. RH442 is IMHO one of Red Hat's best courses, and EX442 is IMHO Red Hat's toughest exam. I would recommend this course to anyone who really wants to know how to get the most out of a Linux system.

I also recommend "Optimizing Linux Performance: A Hands-On Guide to Linux Performance Tools" by Phillip G. Ezolt. <http://www.amazon.com/Optimizing-Linux-Performance-Hands-Guide/dp/0131486829>
