Detailed Review Of Preparation
I used Linux Academy SAA course. It was definitely a big help. I took notes on every module in the course, took the quizzes and even did all the labs. Do the quizzes until you get a 100% on all of them. Do all the labs at least twice - one phase as a follow along with the video and another phase on your own just reading the instructions.
After I completed the course, I skim watched a Youtube video by Exampro...I watched all the "cheatsheets" in the video (look in the video description or comments for video timestamps) and that helped because it was a good way to hear the material from a different perspective/trainer. I didn’t take notes here unless I absolutely needed. I just listened to make sure I actually knew the material from Linux Academy.
Leading up to the exam, I re-took all the quizzes & labs on LinuxAcademy and reviewed my notes. Then I watched the Youtube video, but only the topics that I was uncomfortable with. Then, a couple days later took the exam. Hope this helps!
