I feel incredibly happy to have passed the exam and finally obtained my certification, especially after my third attempt. For those of you planning to take the exam, I'd like to share my experience and advice:
I cannot stress enough the importance of reading each question very carefully. Understanding the details is crucial for providing the correct answers.
Personally, I tend to make typos, so I found it helpful to use the "cut and paste" method when typing commands/configurations/arguments. It minimizes the risk of errors.
During the exam, time management is key. The three-hour duration goes by quickly, so if I ever got stuck on a difficult question, I would click on the "back" button and choose to "revisit" it later. This way, I ensured I had enough time to tackle other questions.
Pay attention to the small things. There are many details you need to address during the exam, such as logs, events, and configurations.
You don't have to worry about memorizing every setting or field. Whether using the CLI or Web GUI to configure the infrastructure, I found that copying YAML samples from the Web GUI can save time. If in doubt, I would refer to "oc explain" or use the "command help" function to get a better idea of how things work.
Before taking the exam, I recommend going through the official documentation. Familiarize yourself with the layout and where specific functions or features are located. It's essential to have a general idea, so you don't waste time searching for information during the exam.
I hope my experiences and advice can be of help to you as you prepare for the exam. Good luck, and I believe you can do it too!
My score is 281/300.
@Webber Congratulations, I'd like to thank you for sharing your experience and how you managed to pass the exam. Your score is amazing. I'll take the exam too but few months later, i hope to pass from the first attempt too.
