I am preparing for the Linux certification test

I have two laptops with Linux(centos 6.4) installed.

Are there any practice exercises available that I can use the laptops as practice tools?
If not, what are some exercises that I can do the laptops to prepare the Linux test?

Well the redhat certification is a live test.  You get about 3 hours to install, configure and secure a certain amount of services.

I would learn how to set a bunch of services like dns, dhcp, nfs, samba, etc.  Install them and configure them to be used on the internet.

Also study iptables.

Good luck.
