It was definitely stressful, I did expect the RHCE to be a lot harder
as I expected before walking in that there is no way I could pass. The
reason is the crash course is 4 days long where you cram a ~400 page
manual. And you are supposed to study all what you learnt when you get
back home every night. It was hectic. I over-estimated the exam
though, just because of the intensity of the course, but it is not a
piece of cake. However, it may not be as hard as people make it to
seem. The following cheat sheet was inspirational, and I think covers
good ground.

and emotions around the exam
