Course description

This course will discuss the CompTIA Linux+ course outline, as well as introduce the test objectives and a brief discussion of the test, including passing score and question types. Additionally, this course will introduce how to set up a lab using VirtualBox as a desktop hypervisor. Although the Linux+ is not considered a hands-on test, there are some performance-based questions and having a lab gives you the chance to get more hands-on experience, which will facilitate learning the concepts and specific commands.
