    Default 2015 updates in the Linux+ 102 exam?

    I'm sitting for my Linux+ 102 on Thursday (Feb 12) of this week. I was wondering if anyone knows for sure if the 2015 topics are on the exam as of February? I took the 101 on the January 20th and don't recall the 2015 subjects on that exam.


    If you go to COMPTIA's site for the Linux+ there is no mention of the updates and if you click the see what the exam covers link you get a PDF that does not list the new topics.


    I know people will say just learn the new stuff, because it will be helpful anyway. I have watched the videos I just need to know where to focus my time. I have plenty of things to memorize and if I could cut some of 2015 topics off my list that would make things a lot easier in my effort to pass. Btw, 2015 topics are things like LightDM, syslog-ng, jornalctl etc.



    Thanks in advance for any info.

    They aren't. The 2015 version will have a new exam numbering scheme.

    Thank you for the reply. That confirms what I've heard thus far.

    I asked the same question on the Linux Academy forums one of the instructors said the 2015 materials won't be on an exam until March, at that point they will have 2 separate exams for up to 6 months after that. I've emailed COMPTIA as well to get the official answer but feel pretty good about the answer Linux Academy provided, I'll post anything I hear from COMPTIA.

    The info they sent out said you could choose what version you wanted to take after the new year but I only see the old versions available. For what it's worth, examcompass has this info:
    • CompTIA Linux+ (powered by LPI). Exam codes: LX0-101 and LX0-102. Exam Retirement date: N/A.

    Got a reply from COMPTIA support on a ticket I opened. They said the following.

    The CompTIA Linux+LPI exams will not have the 2015 objectives on the exam until March 30, 2015.

    New LPIC-1, LPIC-304, and LE exams are almost here!


    UPDATED: February 17th. Due to some unforseen technical difficulties with launch, our new exam launch has been slightly delayed. Information has been updated below. We apologize for any inconvenience.
    We're putting the finishing touches on the new versions of the LPIC-1, LPIC-304 and Linux Essentials exams. For the first time, we'll be offering the new and old version of the exams for a period of six months for improved options based on the study materials you've been using. Read on to get important new info on new exam names, release dates, and summary of changes.
    New Exam Names and Launch Dates
    If you've ever taken an LPI exam through Pearson VUE you'll likely have seen our exams listed at 117-101 for the first LPIC-1 exam. Now, to facilitate the six-month overlap of the versions we've implemented a new naming system for our exams.

    All existing promotion codes, discount vouchers and pre-paid vouchers will be updated to allow the new names. Existing registrations made for the old series code will be honored.
    You can see how this will appear by going to our landing page at VUE LPI :: Pearson VUE and navigating to the “view exams” item on the right of the page.
    Please Note: LPIC-2, LPI-300, LPI-303 will retain the old names 117-201, 117-202, 117-300, and 117-303 until they are due to be republished.
