On Tuesday I sat and passed the LPI 101 and 102 exams! That means that am now LPIC-1 certified.
I had decided to sit both exams in one day to get it out of the way. I was actually a little nervous before the exams as I didn’t really know what to expect. What I did find was that the exams cover a wide range of topics and distributions. There were a few questions in there that I really didn’t know the answer to! Now, these days, two minutes with google, or a man page, and that knowledge gap would have been plugged – sitting there with an empty box on the screen waiting for an answer, hmm… A little head scratching and educated guessing was required.
Thankfully I did know the answers to the vast majority of the questions and passed both exams with scores over 80%. Each exam is 90 minutes long, but I didn’t quite need that long – 19 minutes for the first one. The second was a bit tougher and took a little longer: 20 minutes.
LPIC-1 in under an hour… I’m happy with that
