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 :)

Anyway, we will wait for the moderator to help :)

Hi @Remzi ,

I agree with @PiotrS  and @Gineesh . Your score will not be docked for using any available documentation. Knowing how to find particular information may also be a hidden objective of your exam :)

Your score is only based on the end results. If for example, you are told to set up a web service that answers on port 80 and sends out the text "Hello world!", we connect to port 80 and look at what comes back. If you were to write a service that listened on port 80 and responded with the text, or set up a web page would be up to you. We would just make sure that the end result is correct.

Best Regards,

Hya,

Want to prepare for my exam.

Why is a wireless keyboard and mouse not allowed ?

I use a microsoft sculpt ergnomic keyboard, only one I have.

This is wireless, same goes for the aptico trackball.

 

Further more the image does not seem to detect my logitech c270, while this is quite a normal webcam.

 

Another question can I use a headset for communication, or is a headset not allowed at all ?

(And if it's not allowed how am I to hear the proctor ask anything?)

 

thank you in advance.

Hi there,


Why is a wireless keyboard and mouse not allowed ?

I use a microsoft sculpt ergnomic keyboard, only one I have.

This is wireless, same goes for the aptico trackball.


A wired keyboard/mouse is a strict requirement for RH remote exams.
I suppose its to make the proctors job easier and to ensure additional devices are not connected during your exam. Unfortunately, there is no way around it for now.


Further more the image does not seem to detect my logitech c270, while this is quite a normal webcam.


I have also used the Logitech C270 basic 720p camera for my first exam and it was detected. I do not know if there are different versions of this model but you can try to test it by live booting Fedora 33 and see if its detected (The remote exam image is based on Fedora 33).

A warning about this camera model, During my exam, the proctors could not read the ID for verification and it was blurry and we had to spend a while to get that sorted. I eventually moved to a better webcamera for future exams.
Here is a page where other testers have shared their hardware details - https://learn.redhat.com/t5/General/RedHat-Remote-Exam-supported-hardware-cameras-mice-keyboards/m-p...


Another question can I use a headset for communication, or is a headset not allowed at all ?

(And if it's not allowed how am I to hear the proctor ask anything?)


Headsets are not needed for communication. The proctor will communicate with you via a chat applet within the exam environment.

Hope that helps and Good luck with your exam!

Hello,

    I have an upcoming remote exam and was running the compatibility check.   I noticed that my external webcam was recording the mirror image of myself in front of my monitor.  I experimented with showing my ID document to the webcam and it displayed the reverse image.  In other words the printing looked backwards, like in a mirror.   will this be a problem?  there doesn't seem to be any controls in the compatibility setup that let you adjust anything about the camera and there are no buttons or controls on the webcam that allow you to do anything.

 

Dennis

It hasn't been an issue with me, personally. As long as the words on your license and your background are clear, you should be fine.

Hi,

As replied here:

reply webcam horizontally flipped is normal 

It's normal. The proctor will see the image as it should, no worries here :)

 

Good luck for your exam,
