    For some reason I have no history when I log into prometric, even though I've taken multiple exams with them and I have a candidate ID. I phoned them and the woman informed me it was showing as failed for the Linux + beta....

    I am starting to think only Prometric is releasing results. Anyone here use VUE?

    That's a nice way of finding out. XD Let me guess, Prometric too?

    Just checked the prometric site again this afternoon and learned that I passed. I was in with the last bunch of people to take it (tested 1 Sept 09) so it would seem like they are wrapping up with the scoring...

    Hehe, so I got the results...

    passed the Linux+ on: 9-Jan-2009 1:15 PM
    passed the Linux+ beta on: 22-Jul-2009 12:30 PM


    OK, this wasn't probably fair just 6 month in between.

    Congrats!

    On another note, I e-mailed CompTIA to ask about PearsonVUE results. It almost seems that the lady who gave us the vouchers did not know the results were being released via Prometric by the reaction of her read receipt. XD

    My understanding was that only a certain number of people that passed were actually going to receive the certificate (the first 50?), so that might be part of the reason for her reaction.

    Does anyone else remember reading something like that?

    This cannot be correct as I was in the very, very last batch of people who received voucher codes and I took the exam within a week and 1/2 of the final date. I believe the cut off amount was 400. But even then I doubt that they would list anyone as failed who had passed it, even if they did not receive the certification because they fell outside the cut off.

    Looking through my old e-mails, it looks like you are right about the 400. The "50" was that they said they needed 50 more people to take the exam, and had nothing to do with how many certs they were handing out. Just misremembered that part.

    Hi everyone, seems like there's been a mistake. Please read the e-mail direct from CompTIA:

    "(Me), the people who received the notice received it in error. The notice was released inadvertently and those people will shortly receive an email from CompTIA.

    Exam development activities are not quite final. Please be patient just a bit longer. Thank you."

    Dear Linux+ beta candidate:
    If you participated in the CompTIA Linux+ beta exam you may have received an email with notice of pass/fail along with instructions to confirm your mailing address in CompTIA’s CareerID system. As the final exam and scoring checks have yet to be completed, we ask that you disregard this request.
    At the appropriate time you will be notified by your testing provider (Prometric or VUE), and given your score report and instructions on how to obtain your certificate. We apologize for your inconvenience, and appreciate your patience while we complete exam development activities for the CompTIA Linux+ Certification Exam.

    CompTIA Linux+ Team

    I personally have lost a lot of respect and confidence in CompTIA after this stunt. Prometric lists I passed the exam and it's listed under my certifications in my CompTIA account but yet the scores haven't been finalized??

    I think you will probably will remain "passed." I think some of the others that were told they "fail" might get a second chance. However, I would not count on seeing a certificate in your mailbox until February.

    Wow yours is listed on CompTIA? Mine is listed on Prometric, but the only thing in my CompTIA account is Linux+ 2004.

    I know that this topic has gone cold. However, anyone want to have bets on when the results might become available? I am thinking late January.
