Question RHCSA Exam in RHEL6


Hi there,

I wanna take the RHCSA exam in RHEL 6. I read exam has 2 parts. And I have some questions about exam.

1. Do they take the exam in one day or 2 days?
2. How many questions come in theoretical part?
3. How many minutes for 1 question?
4. How long (for example how many pages) instructions come in practical part?
5. How many computers do they provide for exam?
6. In RHEL installation part, what is the facility like?
7. In RHEL troubleshooting part, what do they provide? Usually how many computers do they give to one person?
8. While you were taking the exam, did any physical hardware issues happen?
9. I am going to take an exam in Linux Learning Center in Bangalore. If you had taken the exam in this place, how did it continue? Any advice?

If I did not mention another necessary things, please tell me.

Thank you.

I'm pretty sure for several of those questions, anyone who has taken the exam isn't allowed to tell you any details about the exam itself as part of the conditions of taking it. I'm taking it myself in June

That's good decision. I will try to answer your questions as much as possible

1.the RHCSA exam has time limit of 3 hrs.
2,3.the time you take depends upon your talent
4.the question may of 3-4 paragraphs
5.1 PC per 1 student minimum of 8 members are required to conduct the exam
6,7.For every practical only 1 PC is given through which you should crack the password,configure the network so that u receive the paper it generally takes 30-45 mins.
8.There will be no such things as the examiner would check each & everything before he conducts the exam
9.i haven't given my exam there,anyway don't turn your head unnecessarily,the redhat examiners are very strict in conducting the exam.
If you are found guilty or if he suspects you he might fail you in exam. Don't worry All The Best.

Thank you for your reply.
But I have one more question. If we need to configure server and client, does it mean we will use same computer (server and client in one computer) ?

RHCSA came into existence after the launching of RHEL 6. Before that it was RHCT. The RHCSA course consist of two book. SA1(EX 124) and SA2(EX 135). If you take the third book, that is SA3(EX 255) you can write the RHCE exam as well.
RHCSA exam is for 2 and a half hour. This is a performance based exam. Details on questions cannot be given. I have not written a RHCSA exam but have written RHCT exam and also RHCE. There are a lot more topics in RHCSA than RHCT.

More information on RHCSA visit: https://www.redhat.com/certification...x.html?id=home

I am not sure what do you mean? Or if you know what you are talking about. While writing the exam, you have to accept a confidentiality agreement where in you can not divulge anything regarding exam to anyone.
Forget mock tests and go about reading the material and practising the examples in the book. Dont waste time in finding out shortcuts to success. And if you even pass the exam but certify no knowledge according to the industry standards, you would anyhow be deemed useless. Forget everything and concentrate on acquiring knowledge.

Thank you for your reply.
I have been reading and practicing. I do not want to take an exam until I completely sure to myself. I asked for this reason. I think nothing to bother in it.
