Yes there is an entire course DO457 that covers the objectives for the exam. Each chapter has multiple hands-on exercises. There is no free course nor free set of labs for this, but the DO457 is available as part of RHLS and it includes the video classroom pieces with an instructor presenting the lectures and walking you through the hands-on exercises.

Hi,

I took EX457 exams this month but failed twice with a nearly same results as %0 network administration tasks. But the thing is I did all the questions as wanted and checked from the devices and push the playbooks the gitlab.
After the exam I also tried to figured out what I did wrong but I could not find anything special. The thing is I will do the same if I will take the exam and failed again.
Do you know anything about this can be happened because of a test center problem or exam test automation has some issues.
I am that quite sure that I should pass, I opened a ticket but the the guys kept saying that he result is accurate. When I asked which playbooks that you can see in the gitlab they did not answering me because of some reason. Finally I asked for escalation I hope they can help me. Is there anything like the reviewers can check the exam video records or something else. I have nearly similar playbooks with me if any expert from RedHat can discuss me about where I am wrong I will be appreciate.
Best Regards

I confirm, same for me for "network administration tasks" => 0% where I was pretty sure to be successful.

My feeling is that the section results in this exam are absolute: 0% or 100%, nothing between... at least the recapitulation of my last exam was like that.

My 2nd attemp will be tomorrow, I'll refer about.

Just received results, passed with 237 points.

I confirm my hypothesis, the assessement looks very "binary" per each section and looks like no partial efforts accepted:

 OBJECTIVE: SCORE
        Configure Automation content navigator to work with Ansible Automation Platform: 0%
        Manage playbooks using Git repositories: 100%
        Manage variables and facts.: 50%
        Implement task devops: 100%
        Work with automation controller: 100%
        Utilize roles and Ansible Content Collections: 0%
        Automate network administration tasks: 100%

So like let's say we have 6 playbooks for network automation and 1 of them is not as expected for the test review tool and it counts all 6 as 0. It makes sense to me also, this can be the just explanation for me even though I am not sure it should be like this:)

@mbehadir -

The playbooks for Network Automation do lots of things so the 6 aren't all counting as zero. There are several tasks that you complete and some objectives might go across multiple tasks. For example, the person above you passed and got 100% in Network Administration tasks, but 0% on the objectives for Utilize Roles and Ansible Content Collections. In order to use roles or content collections you must have them in playbooks. So maybe you got credit for that, but whatever you were supposed to do for the network administration task didn't work. 

For Red Hat exams, you need to pay very close attention to the details. Look at the question, what are you being asked, what are you told to do, were you able to test and verify. I've had discussions like this with other Red Hatters and students where I've delivered the live in-person exam. We are not allowed to disclose what students do wrong, but they swear something is 100% right when I'm watching them do it wrong over and over and we can say nothing.

My advice, look very closely at what you are supposed to be doing. If you are asked to name something ThisIsMe, name it ThisIsMe, not thisisme or tHisiSme do EXACTLY what is asked. While some argue it doesn't make sense and this doesn't test whether you know how to do something ... it does test, you need to know the process and create the correct and exact resources.
