Pass Rate & Success Pack for the RHCSA


So I'm taking the fast-track (1 week) training and the RHCSA exam. (RH200) The cost is $3,400. I notice that they offer a "Success Pack" option for $3,600. The only difference is you get two shots at the exam which costs $400 alone. If you pass the first time you cannot transfer the credit. So it's basicaly like insurance on a product with a $400 value for $200. 50% seems steep..

I apologize in advance if this has been covered but anyone have an idea as to what the typical pass rate for the RHCSA Exam is? Does anyone have an opinion on whether the Success Pack is worth the additional $200?

Thanks in advance!

It's really down to how much experience you have with RHEL. Experienced people pass it in minimum time with zero preparation, newbies often seem to fail it. Personally I would feel that if you *need* a course for it, you shouldn't be taking the exam anyway, as it's pretty trivial stuff for a Linux professional, however new to the game.
