Overview of what's new in this update

  • To prepare students for the evolving use cases for Linux, we have updated our content to be more concise and cover more advanced topics, such as containers.
  • We've added functionality to 12 new Linux commands including nslookup, apt, grep, sudo, visudo, pidof, stat, git, lostat, lsblk, setfacl/getfacl, and top.

    The CompTIA Linux+ (XKO-005) exam has been updated to accommodate for shifting industry expectations, as Linux is utilized in new and more complex ways. Linux Pro is 100% aligned and helps prepare students to learn essential Linux administrative principles and demonstrate their knowledge and skills using scenario-based lab simulations in a networked environment that's optimized for structured learning.
