Re: Questions about getting ready for your Red Hat remote exam?

Hello 

I just found out about this today after I missed my exam. This link https://learn.redhat.com/t5/Certification-Resources/Getting-Ready-for-your-Red-Hat-Remote-Exam/ba-p/...

 

suppose to be  available on the time whenyou schedule or register for your remote exam.

I have no idea this is needed before the exam all i did is register and schedule . I was thinking it would be some thing through the browser like LPIC  cert not that you have to do all that to get to remote exam.

Why wouldnt they have some thing like this or email when schedule a remote exam sent about the exam preperation. ??  or through a reminder  or any thing.

Re: Questions about getting ready for your Red Hat remote exam?

Strange.

I've received an e-mail 3 or 4 days before exam with the reminder of exam and detailed description how to test RemoteExam environment.

Please check your spam folders - maybe e-mail was filtered?

Yes. The title of the email would have been "Your Red Hat Individual Exam Reservation Has Been Confirmed".

Best Regards,

Re: Questions about getting ready for your Red Hat remote exam?

Can I install a webcam driver software after booting from the USB ( based on the fedora iso image distributed)?

As far as I know you can't modify Exam ISO and you have no access to OS of this environment. So the answer is - no you can't install.

Hi @binyam 

@PiotrS is correct, you can not modify the "Live Remote Exam Environment", so you can not install anything (except what could be asked in an exam instruction, for example some packages, and that is limited to some exam related virtual machines ...).

Hi @crixus1 ,

Candidates receive the information by email, after the purchasing process.

It contains a link with all the instructions.

Re: Questions about getting ready for your Red Hat remote exam?

Hi @bardo,

EX407 will be available as a Remote Exam pretty soon.

Please refer to my comments at https://learn.redhat.com/t5/General/Questions-about-getting-ready-for-your-Red-Hat-remote-exam/m-p/1...

You should be able to see an option to cancel your existing schedule (or reschedule to a much farther date to avoid a no-show). Once RE option is released in about a week or so, you can switch it.

Regards,

Shefeeq

Re: Questions about getting ready for your Red Hat remote exam?

Hi,

I really would appreciate it if a list of compatible webcam that worked reliably could be setup, even if it's community run because many of us seem to be subject to a large amount of variability. With just over 24 hours to go until my exam I had to cancel it because my webcam (Logitech BRIO Ultra HD, not a shabby camera) worked fine during the Compatibility Testing but when I re-tested it (without a reboot) the microphone then failed the test repeatedly and the camera image is suddenly flipped. It seems the testing environment is not maintaining the settings between the first and subsequent times it accesses the camera.

I'd put in loads of work to be ready for the test on the Holiday Monday here in the UK but as the remote exam environment flipped from "PASSED" to "FAILED" within a few minutes I'm now going backwards. I'm using a desktop PC (which I purchased explicitly for exam taking purposes) so I don't have an internal microphone to fall back on. I'm £1000 deep so far into this already, what do I need to buy to take the exam? Once I know, I'll buy it.

"Webcam: One external webcam with at least a 1m cable" doesn't really offer much clarity. I have one of those, a pretty good one but it's apparently is unreliable in this remote exam environment.

I feel like I've failed before I've even started.
