ex374 ansible automation exam is badly designed and has many bugs



I have taken 4 rhel exam, and  I personally think the exam ex374 which I took today is very badly designed.


1) Many questions do not have clear meanings, which makes it difficult to understand.

2) System environment is not correct, I failed to upload a collection to the hub for technique errors.  The tasks also complain about python environment not correct. Those settings should be fixed before we can take the exam.

3) Many tasks are not related to do374 course, and many important skills in do374 are not tested. That makes it ridiculous to take the do374 course.

I have been attending the do374 course, and I can finish all the lab assignment without any reference material. I do not think tasks failed due my errors.

I strong recommend Red Hat to request their employee to do the exam, and  fix those  bugs.


Appreciate feedback if any of you have taken the ex374 exam.

I did this EX374 a while ago and managed to get 100%.

I agree with you that this exam can be very confusing. Especially when the candidates have not used Ansible a lot and have not performed regular troubleshootings of Ansible low-level issues. 

I agree that some of the questions were not really about developing ansible collection, but was more on the topics covered in EX447. What helped me was that I have done EX447 before this and I have been using AAP2 since the day it was released.

And I think I had that python dependencies issues as well and managed to solve it by installing it separately. But yes that was not ideal situation for the candidate.

I do not know if the course/exam has been updated since I took this last year, but if this is still based on AAP 2.0 and earlier version ansible-builder, then it is not on sync with what's available out there. When I was doing this exam, I was already using AAP 2.2 for my work and the new ansible-builder & ansible-navigator version syntaxes have changed somewhat.
