@Donpezet - I am busy with the XK0-005 course. Is the course material enough to write the LPI 101-500 and 102-500 exams by itself or do I need to go through the 101-500/102-500 to cover any extra materials?
Linux+ and LPI Exams
They are pretty close, but unfortunately, there are a handful of topics on the LPI exams that are not present in the exam objectives for Linux+. You could attempt it, but I would not be comfortable recommending you try that. You could, however, study the XK0-005 materials, and then just watch the 101-500 and 102-500 episodes that aren't already covered. I have never mapped it, but it would probably add up to about 75% overlap between the two, so you could cut out a lot of episodes.
