Having used Linux mainly in the Home environment too for about 7-8
years I've got a lot of experience but perhaps not well rounded but
having done a few trail exam questions I found I'm pretty sure I could
answer most , but  I've  got a few knowledge gaps, so need to make
sure I've got all required areas covered.

Why are the tests sooo expensive?
