I am trying to break into the Linux Server Administration field so I have been doing quite a bit of studying lately. I figured while I am studying the subject I might as well work towards a related certification. I am leaning towards the Linux Professional Institute Certification. Other certifications I am considering are CompTIA’s Linux+ and Red Hat’s RHCE. So which Linux certification is the best? I would say Red Hat is the most reputable of these three but I am concerned that their certification might be too Red-Hat-centric, and I don't want to be locked into one distro. Which one is the easiest/cheapest to obtain? Which is the mostly highly regarded in the industry? Are there others that I missed?
I'm currently working towards my MCSE and am looking for some good (hopefully free) resources as far as Skills Assesment or trainers are concerned- Googling for it only turns up pages and pages of ads. If you've gotten your MSCSE or any of the MS Certification tests what resources did you find most helpful?
