Penguin Tutor is a site focussed on helping you get the most out of Free and Open Source software and hardware. The main focus is on the Linux operating system, but information is included on running open source software on top of other open source operating systems (UNIX / BSD etc.) or on proprietary systems such as Windows and Mac OS. There is also some info on open source electronics hardware including the Arduino.
For anyone looking at Linux certification there are a range of Linux tutorials to help you with your studies as well as practice exams for the LPIC (Linux Professional Institute Certification) series of exams including the LPI 101 and LPI 102 practice exams. These exams cover all flavours of Linux, including those using RedHat Package Management tools and Debian based management tools and are also suitable for those looking at Novell Certified Linux Adminstrator for SUSE Linux Enterprise.
I decided to create this website when working towards LPI Certification Exams. I was disappointed by the price of LPI practice exams, and the poor quality of the free practice exams. I therefore decided to use my quiz engine to add a FREE practice exam available all. The site has since involved to encompass the various different aspects of Free and Open Source software and hardware.
Most other sites that offer practice exams either ask you to sign up to email adverts, or give a small sample of questions to encourage you to buy their full product. The exams on this site are completely free, do not require you to sign up for any junk mail, and I do not have an alternative pay for version.
The only funding received for this site is from the advertisers and any donations.
There are a number of different penguin images located throughout the site. Keep your eyes open and see if you can spot them all. You can also see these on the PenguinTutor Facebook page.
