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

Hi,

In my 6 different Red Hat Exams, I never seen any information saying we are not allowed to install anything. If the package is available in the repository presented in the exam, then nothing is preventing you to install it.

Saying that, if it's not mentionned during the exams questions then it's not required (Yes, it's easier for you because you are familiar with that, I mean in a way for other candidates they don't need to do that).

As for create simple shell scripts, I think it's solely using bash. Well let's say that it was my interpretation of the exam questions and that worked, I got 100% on that topic. I don't think you can use python... I think you will have the answer to your question after reading the exam requirements...(can't help you due to the NDA that every candidate is accepting).

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

Hi there,


Speakers are not a requirement for remote exams. The proctor will communicate with you via a chat applet within the exam environment.
However, a microphone is needed to transmit your audio to the proctors. If your internal mic also has problems, you can use a wired microphone/headset (via jack or USB) and leave it on the work table. (Your exam proctor will guide on the camera & mic placement).

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

Hi. Can i use a wired/bluetooth external microphone and speaker device during the exam? It's the Anker PowerConf device in particular.

The microphone and speaker volume on my laptop is rather soft even when put to maximum, thus would like to find out if i can use an external speaker and microphone. 

Thank you.

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

Hello,

While I am in the exam, Can I use information commands such as “man, ansible-doc, info ” during the exam?

If we can, could you explain whether using these commands have any effect on the score what we will get at the end of the exam or not?

 

Thanks.

Remzi

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

I don't think that using man/info/other docs was prohibited/restricted somehow on exams.

I'm doing it on all my exams and I had few 300/300s so there's no "penalty" on using manuals.

Moreover - they don't expect you to know all the switches, options etc. for each and every command/module. The beauty of practical exam is that you have to know how to configure the particular part of OS and NOT to memorize sequences of commands.

There's one "BUT" - you have to know where to find this information because searching for something you're not aware of is time consuming. So I'd recommend to get familiar with the docs and not memorize them.

The "power of admin" includes also an ability to find the information not only knowledge "how to use ls or reboot".

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

Ofcourse you can use and I believe there is no such impact on scoring by
checking the man page or help.

As you might already know, these are 100% practical exams and you are free
to refer to provided help/documentation (if any). The assessment is based
on the ability to solve the questions; even finding the correct solution
from a man page is a skill Smiley Happy

Anyway, we will wait for the moderator to help Smiley Happy
