Just a side note here. I took my exam with no speakers at all and was fine. I was able to see when the Proctor was messaging me and the one time I did not the proctor just paused the exam to get my attention. Speakers are certainly nice to have but I didn't want anyone to run out and spend money thinking they were required.

Another note, my webcam (a Logitec C922), like many other such devices, has a microphone built in. That worked fine for me and I did not need a seperate microphone. Again just hoping to save people money on something they might not need.

FYI. Today I purchased EX200 exam. I see the order in my account, but I couldn't find any link to schedule the exam. Maybe it's too early, idk. I even checked YouTube to learn how to schedule it. Anyway, while browsing my account details I found "My Emails" tab that I never used before. There are just 2 emails from today's date. I checked the latest email and I was pretty sure I didn't receive it. Indeed, Gmail considered the second email as spam and sent it to the spam folder. The first email didn't go to the spam folder. For some reason, Gmail only filtered the second email. So folks, if you didn't receive some important emails regarding your training or exams, don't forget to check your spam folder...

Hi, you may try this guide: https://www.redhat.com/rhdc/managed-files/tr-remote-exams-preparation-ebook-f27382-202103-en_2.pdf They mention MacOS on page 18. Here is what they say: "2018 and later series of Mac systems have been found to have compatibility issues with several Linux® distributions. These issues impact the remote exam LiveUSB as well".

Not sure what are those "compatibility issues". I'd try downloading exam boot iso and creating a USB stick then test if everything is OK. I already run 3 or 4 tests of my PC that I'm going to use for the remote exam. In my case it's a regular PC with Win 10 and Intel CPU.

Once my flash drive boots, which option do I choose? Once I'm in Fedora, how do I ccess the live exam environment? Is it just going to my red hat learning subscription and logging in?

The boot will guide you into a couple of configuration prompts, then log in to the Red Hat site. Once that is done, you will be in a start screen where you first verify your equipment is ready to go. Once that is then, you will be ready to access the exam environment once link to use it is active.

I'd also suggest logging in beforehand because in my case I experienced an issue while testing my mic. Believe me, you don't want to encounter any serious hardware issues just before the exam starts...

Really wish I could get an answer to my issue before my test in the morning. When I boot to the live USB, all i get is an option to 'Try Fedora' and an option to 'Install to Hard Drive' neither one gets me to any live environment. Please help.
