If you are good enough to get the RHCE and i mean that you actually have 
the required knowledge and skills, the RH300 will definitely set you up 
for certification. When I took my exam, I went the RH300 route...I did 
not know whether I had the stuff so I thought I'd just take the RH300 
course to make sure. On the exam day, I met others who were taking the 
exam but did not take the course. I asked one he was gambling on the 
exam without taking the course. He pointed out that two exams were less 
than the cost of the RH300 course/exam combo.

The RHCE is really pretty basic (or was anyway...did mine on RH7.1 five 
years ago) and you don't have to memorized pesky command line arguments 
or out of date and incorrect concepts like swap should be twice the 
amount of RAM as you would if you were taking the LPI. I would encourage 
taking the RH300 to learn a thing or two :). I certainly did when I did 
mine. I almost got full marks (messed up the kernel name on the kernel 
compilation...lame excuse is that i was too tired after four full days 
on which i had to also conduct computer classes in the evening) and I 
had practically zero work experience on Linux besides teaching Linux 
classes. :P
