You'll have to give LPI feedback about that one, I've said for a while
that seeding beta questions into a live exam is like doing drug testing
on people who buy from the pharmacy, but it's a fact of life.

Right, so you prepared and studied the objectives, and you didn't get
any questions on two of those topics.  So, was the learning and studying
wasted?  I and other book/courseware authors have to cover the entirety
of the objectives, as you are going to be tested on them and have to
perform them in real life.

Same thing, you have to prepare and learn for the "possibility" of
questions on these topics, if I teach you all nothing else, it's to
learn about the depth and breadth of Linux, not just the stuff needed to
pass the exams...

Same here, now go out and do something seriously worthwhile with all
that energy, like pass your 102!
