    Default Linux+ 2009 Beta Scores

    I got a letter from Prometric today. I scored 40 points above the minimum... Skin of my teeth.

    No letter here, yet. I did get an email today from CompTIA asking to confirm my mailing address for certificate fulfillment, and Linux+ 2009 is showing up on my CompTIA history, so I guess I really did pass!

    fraud email ?!?
    Dear XXX,

    To ensure you receive your certificate with the correct spelling of your name, please confirm your name and address. The name and mailing address we have on record is:

    XXX
    165 Someroad
    somepostcode

    sometown,
    United Kingdom

    Before your fulfillment will be delivered, you must login to the system and confirm your name and your mailing address. If the name is incorrect, you will need to contact Customer Service to correct it at 630-678-8300 option 5 or questions@comptia.org.

    Please log in with your current ID (someID) here: https://www.certmetrics.com/comptia

    Best regards,
    CompTIA Customer Support
    I mean what kind of domain is that? "www . certmetrics . com" I never had anything to do with them. The CertID doesn't mean anything to me either and I would not know the password...
    They got the Name and the address right, though.

    Did anyone else get this email?

    If I try to go to their www host I get this:
    The destination you are attempting to reach is inaccessible via this URL.

    I received my pass letter today as well.
    Read this and hopped up to check the mail, and I had a letter waiting there as well hehe. A decent pass considering that there were no explicit study materials.

    According to his first post he passed by 40 points so I would guess a 750, which is a little higher than previous pass marks I think. I haven't received the scores on either of mine yet just a pass and fail.

    That's a fairly high pass mark. That is almost similar to what the pass mark for Security+.

    Hey you passed, that's what counts! My letter came today, score is 855. IIRC that's about the same as what I got on Linux+ 2004 when I took it in 2005.

    I didn't pass unfortunately.......... I took the test on a whim hoping to somehow pass. I'm going to buy the official study guide and try again sometime next year. Congrats to all those who passed.

    865 here, but you know what? A pass is a pass. There's nothing terrible about it, aside from how I did on the CUPS questions.

    Well, I agree. But I would like to think that I know the material better than that. But Linux is really one of those things that I enjoy but really only use as a tool. So I only know what I need to. But even so, I will eventually need to get some more knowledge down on Unix like OSes. This was a pretty good benchmark to help me realize I don't know as much as I thought I did.
