Good answer.. ;)

Should have asked.. I could have given you just about every difference betweek
EL3 and EL4. I used the heck out of the Jang book and also marked every
error (and there are several). Me and another trainer at Rackspace did the
material training and testing of 62 of our folks at Rackspace. We had an
astounding 92% pass rate!!! (including RHCTs), with 11 perfect scores (out of
62)! Really proud of our techs. They're hot stuff.

And if anyone on the SATLUG or XCSSA list wants the detailed diffs between EL3
& 4 before doing any self study work using that book, let me know.

Ouch.. Good luck indeed.. Did you pay for the whole RH300 class.. or just the
Exam? Did you take it in Austin at Microtek? (nice lunch layouts and cookies
eh?)... What'd you pay.. about $6-700? (if you don't mind me asking)
