Hello, everybody. I'm Shawn Powers, and welcome to the Exam 202 portion of the road to LPIC-2 certification. Now if you've ever taken certification exams before, you know that some of the courses that are really, really long and in-depth can be so stressful when it comes to taking tests.


And LPIC-2 is one of those courses that is very in-depth, has a lot of information, and a lot of things to learn. So they've broken it up into two separate exams. LPIC 201 is a course that you could have taken. It's already on the CBT Nuggets website.


This course is exam 202. So just like the LPIC folks have broken it up into two exams, we've broken it up into two courses, so you can prepare separately, and not get overwhelmed by just how much information there is to take in. But it's an exciting course.


201 was great. 202 is also great. We're not only going to learn how to get certified, but how to do all sorts of hands-on system administration stuff that will make you a much better system administrator, even if you have no interest in becoming certified.


But if you want to get certified, this is definitely the way to go. Hopefully, if you're taking this course, you've already watched the Exam 201 course, and you already have LPIC-1 experience. I hope this has been informative for you, and I'd like to thank you for viewing.
