What is the LPI Linux Essentials Practice Test?

The LPI Linux Essentials practice test is a tool for Cybrary learners that is designed to help them prepare for the 010-160 certification exam. It’s a beginner-level credential that is part of a certification program developed by the Linux Professional Institute (LPI) to establish global standards for IT professionals and their organizations related to Linux.

The LPI Linux Essentials certification was created for individuals who are just starting their open source careers or for those who want to validate proficiency for current or future employers. Our LPI Linux Essentials practice test allows learners to determine whether their Linux knowledge and skills are sufficient to pass the certification exam or if they need further instruction, practice, or study.

The practice test, like the LPI Linux Essentials certification exam, covers five domains:

  1. Linux Community and Careers in Open Source
  2. Finding Your Way on a Linux System
  3. The Power of the Command Line
  4. The Linux Operating System
  5. Security and File Permissions

The five domains make up the fundamentals, or essentials, of the Linux operating system. Successfully passing the practice test means that candidates are ready for the real exam. There are up to 40 fill-in-the-blank and multiple-choice questions on the official LPI Linux Essentials certification exam, for which test-takers have one hour to complete.

Is the LPI Linux Essentials Certification Worth It?

By earning the LPI Linux Essentials certificate, certified professionals demonstrate that they have an understanding of the Linux operating system (OS) and multiple Linux distributions, as well as the experience for the configuration, management, and usage of common open source applications and the OS. This is important for various reasons, including:

  • Career enhancement – LPI helps open source communities and Linux members to enhance their careers by providing certifications and professional resources worldwide.
  • Job and promotion opportunities – Most hiring managers and recruiters rely heavily on professional certifications when hiring cybersecurity and IT personnel. The LPI Linux Essentials certification provides added value to a resume.
  • Validation of skills – Certifications demonstrate a specific set of skills and knowledge with no other explanation required.
  • Linux is widely used – Linux use continues to increase worldwide as many users, industries, and government agencies are embracing open source technologies. From the automotive industry to space exploration, Linux adoption is growing, and that means that more professionals who have comprehensive knowledge of Linux are in demand.
  • A stepping-stone for advanced certifications – The LPI Linux Essentials certification is entry-level, but it serves as a stepping-stone to the more complete and advanced Linux Professional certification track.
