    By looking at your topics, I think you are asking about following 2 exams:

     

    1Z0-402 Oracle Linux Fundamentals

    1Z0-403 Oracle Linux System Administration

     

    Please note that these two exams are being retired on October 31, 2013 as they are very old.

     

    Look at the following page to see the information about the new exams that will be replacing the above exams:

    http://education.oracle.com/pls/web_prod-plq-dad/db_pages.getpage?page_id=206

     

    You should consider and plan to take the new exams instead of the old exams. There are trainings from Oracle University to help you prepare for the new exams.

    These are the topics for the new exam:

     

    Please allow me to offer a couple of bits of advice.

     

    First, it is counter-productive to post an extensive list of topics that you have obviously copied from another web site.  No one with the information you are seeking needs to see that list.  Conversley, anyone who thinks they'd need to see the list is almost by definition unqualified to answer your question.  Do you really expect someone to take the time to go through that list and cross reference it to whatever "study materials" they might be familiar with?

     

    Second, it would be really helpful if you would go to your profile and give yourself a recognizable name.  It doesn't have to be your real name, just something that looks like a real name.  Who says my name is really Ed Stevens?  But at least when people see that on a message they have a recognizable identity.  Unlike the system generated name of 'ed0f625b-6857-4956-9b66-da280b7cf3a2', which is like going to the pub with a bag over your head.

    Agree with EdStevens that you don't have to post the list of topics. We all can see the topics on the exam page posted earlier by me. Having said that I am not aware of any books for this exam. Your best bet is take the following 2 trainings:

    Oracle Linux System Administration

    UNIX and Linux Essentials

     

    Or prepare using Product Documentation Resources available at:

    Oracle Linux 6 Product Documentation Library

    Oracle Linux Documentation

     

    Good luck!

    No.  Don't repost it.

    It's already far too long to read, because the O.P. splattered their text multiple times.

     

    It's now moved from the Oracle Linux forum space to the Certification forum space (where it should have been from the start).

    What books are recommended to help me learn for this exam?

     

     

    Yes -- 1Z0-100 is the code for the new Linux exam.  There will also be a follow-on to it: 1Z0-105: Oracle Linux 6 Advanced System Administration.  Since 1Z0-100 is currently in beta, no one has written books specifically for it, nor will they until the test is in production.  I wrote a study guide for 1Z0-460: Oracle Linux 6 Implementation Essentials which contains about a 50% commonality with topics on 1Z0-100.  Once 1Z0-100 comes into production, I will almost assuredly write a guide for it as well.  I expect that other publishers will likely create guides for 1Z0-100 that will likely be out no sooner then mid-to-late 2014.

     

    In the meantime, you can use the links on on the companion website for my study guides to locate information on both exams.  Currently 1Z0-100 has just the links for the applicable topics that were also on 1Z0-460.  However, as I write the guide, I'll add links to additional materials as I run across them.

    I took the beta. Be warned, there are quite a lot of question specific to Oracle Linux. So if you are a Redhat guy you can't answer all questions.
