No book can teach you to pass that exam.
You will need to get RH8.0, and
will need to install it on different
hardware more that 20 times I would
say, and you will have to practice

I have authored a 5-day Linux system
admin course based around RedHat,
Slackware and Debian, and I was involved
with LPI, and I have lots of
experience with sys admin work on RH5,6,
and 7, including building a
driver disk for the Adaptec SCSI RAID
series card (which meant reading the
skimpy info I could find and reverse
engineering other driver disks).

I would not consider taking that exam
without a serious refresher, as I
have not touched RH8.0 and have not done
serious admin work on a Linux
machine (except my home machine) for the
last year.

So, don't take the exam lightly. Your
best investment might be to spend
the money and do the course that is
coupled with the exam on the last day.
