It's not too bad a course I suppose. I'm not a sysadmin. Had I been one I might have put to use the skills learned on how to set up a secondary DNS for example. The module on bash/perl scripting was good for me as was the one on networking. The first two would be basic for most people who've been around Linux CLI for any amount of time. Unless you want/need the certificate, I'd simply look at the course description and do the one(s) that you feel you need. Jacques B.
