CompTIA will make minor changes to the CompTIA Linux+ Powered by LPI
exams this fall. The objective changes are reflected in the current exam objectives
available for download and will be reflected in both CompTIA Linux+ exams, LX0-101 and LX0-102, by the end of August 2012.
The CompTIA Linux+ Powered by LPI exam is a high-stakes, vendor-neutral certification that validates the fundamental knowledge and skills required of junior Linux administrators. The certification is the result of CompTIA's partnership with the Linux Professional Institute (LPI). LPI recently modified its own LPIC-1 exam objectives. With this planned change, CompTIA will align its exam objectives with LPI's.
The modifications to the CompTIA Linux+ exam objectives (LX0-101) include:
- Adding objectives pertaining to systemd, Upstar, LVM, GRUB 2, and ext4;
- Deleting LILO from list of terms; and
- Adding bash_history to list of terms.
Modifications to the CompTIA Linux+ exam objectives (LX0-102) include:
- Adding Environmental Variable TZ to list of terms, and
- Adding an objective pertaining to IPv6
For more information on specific changes visit the LPI wiki
. CompTIA Linux+ exam candidates can check with their respective publisher to find out if they plan to provide addenda for these minor changes to the existing objectives.
These revised objectives will be referenced in CompTIA's regular cycle of republication of the CompTIA Linux+ exams, due in the market by late August. These exams, although modified slightly, are not new exams. The CompTIA Linux+ exams are scheduled for full revision sometime in 2014.
