Fellas, I got a few quick questions. I didn't purchase the exam yet, and I wonder if there is any waiting time between purchasing and scheduling the exam? Also please tell me how can I make sure that I'm scheduling an online exam? I added RHCSA exam to my shopping cart and proceeded till the payment page, but I don't see a way to select the type of exam - online or onsite. Thanks.
Thank you! I just purchased it about 30 mins ago. I see it still has a status "pending payment". Now I hope I selected "individual exam" when I added it to my shopping cart. In the order details I don't see a type of format. Also I already found the remote exam FAQ on RH website. It's pretty helpful though it's not clear if I can use a wired headset: https://www.redhat.com/en/resources/certification-remote-exams-FAQ It says this: "You should remove your watch, rings (except for wedding bands and engagement rings), bracelets, earpieces, any type of headphones, headsets, earphones, or earbuds." So I wonder if I'm using a PC which doesn't have a built-in microphone, then can I use a wired headset? I already tested my PC by using RH downloadable iso test image and it indeed requires you to have both speakers and microphone to make sure you can hear sound and communicate with the proctor.
Thank you again!!! If all communication is done via chat only, then it makes sense. I'll try to plug my external speakers and a stand-alone mic then.
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...
