"In July, I took a look at the Linux+ objectives as the exam went to beta. On September 21st, the exam went live, and it is now possible to delve into it at a much more critical level. In this article, I'll look at each of the individual sub-objectives and the knowledge that is required to meet their minimum criteria.

This is a one-test certification available from CompTIA (www.comptia.org), the organization known for the A+ hardware certification. The exam (number XK0-001) consists of 95 multiple-choice questions. Candidates are allowed two hours to complete the exam. The score is adjusted to fall between 100 and 900, with 655 being the minimum passing score. The cost for the exam is $190 (U.S.). A $50 discount is available for employees of CompTIA member companies.

The exam consists of seven categories, or "domains." Each domain comprises several sub-objectives, which I will describe in detail. Note that some sub-objectives simply require common sense and don?t lend themselves to further research. For information regarding the weighting of each domain or other background information on this exam, see the July overview at: http://www.unixreview.com/documents/urm0107b/."
