Have you by chance taken any of them?  I've heard that as long as you are a experienced Linux geek you should do fine, but some of them do touch on the obscure - and will also test your knowledge of the differences between Linux and *BSD (for those of us so blessed to have to work with all angles ;)).  

Also, a little birdie has told me that the CNLE is a Big, Huge, Evil PITA.  Seems Novell continues to take their certs quite seriously :).
