Emmett Dulaney completes this survey of CompTIA’s Strata Green IT certification exam (number FC0-GR1) with a series of practice questions to test your knowledge and readiness for the exam. By understanding the kinds of questions you may face, you will be better prepared to take the exam, and be able to narrow your studies on those areas you still need to learn.

In earlier articles, we looked at the Strata program from CompTIA and introduced the Green IT certification. We broke down the objectives of CompTIA’s Strata Green IT certification exam (number FC0-GR1) with an eye toward what you need to know in order to be successful on this exam and earn the certification. Having covered all of the material, the following are 20 practice questions to test your knowledge and readiness for this exam.

While the practice questions test on the same topics as the actual exam, there can always be differences in the verbosity of each problem. The certification exam itself consists of 30 questions which must be answered in 60 minutes. The passing score is 70% and it is expected that candidates will have 18 months of work experience (and highly recommended they have A+ and Server+ certification).
