RHCSA 7 Exam Presentation

The RHCSA exam (Red Hat Certified System Administrator), also called EX200, is a performance-based exam lasting 2 hours and half, focusing on installation and server configuration onRHEL 7 (Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7).

You can take the exam in a classroom setting monitored by a proctor or in a IndividualExamSession (IES) remotely monitored. A FAQ about IES is available on the Red Hat website.

Red Hat provides a FAQ about its certification program and one about the Red Hat Learning Subscription service (RHLS).

Red Hat exams are covered by a NDA (Non-Disclosure Agreement): anybody taking an exam can’t talk about it. For this reason, all quiz or sample exams in this website are based on exam objectives and not on real questions, even though the level of difficulty is similar.

After taking the exam and in the next three days, you will receive an email with your result (the pass mark is 210 out of 300). But you will never know what part you succeeded or what part you failed!
