I also recommend Guru Labs classes over RH classes.  You'll learn
more.  If you're after the cert, I might add that I don't think it
does a bit of good when searching for work.  I have the RHCE and it
didn't help get a job at all.  They look for experience, not certs.
The GL class will give you the knowledge you need.  I wouldn't bother
with the cert.
