Red Hat Certification exams are performance-based. They are not multiple-choice questions, so there are no "sample questions" to practice. The exam consists of a list of goals you need to achive, and a virtual environment where you make anything necessary to achieve these goals. Grading the exam means verifying if these goals were met by checking its side effects.

You can follow any procedure to achieve the each goal. For example, you could use either the CLI or the web console of a product. You could use either vi or gedit to edit a configuration file. And so on. If a goal requires creating a local user on a RHEL server, it doesn't matter wheter you run the useradd command or if you editted the /etc/passwd and /etc/shadow files manually. It only matter that you created the use with the specified name, uid, and other attributes.

The recommended courses to prepare for each exam includes a series of "chapter review labs" and a "comphreensive review lab" at the end. These labs are somewhat alike to the exam in the sense that they also present you with a series of goals and a grading script that verifies their side effects. You could avoid reading the solution presented in the course for each of these labs to evaluate if you are able to acomplish them by yourself, like in the exam.

It does not mean that, if you perform all review labs from a given course, you will find very similar questions in the exam. The exam will probably present you with different scenarios but they require the same skills that you practicized in the course.

Hey, @otan2020,

I second absolutely everything @flozano has said.

The one thing he unfortunately forgot to mention is that every exam page on www.redhat.com has an "Exam Objectives" section where you can see what areas you are expected to be competent in to pass the exam.

For example, the RHCE exam page right now (today) looks like this:Screenshot 2019-09-28 at 01.27.05.png

It is also important to remember that exams are living organisms that change and it is a very good idea to re-check the exam objectives before you actually take it, just to see if anything had changed since the last time you saw it.

Hope this helps.

Cheers,
Grega
