In the event that you fail your first attempt at passing the Server+ examination, CompTIA's retake policies are:

  • CompTIA does not require a waiting period between the first and second attempt to pass such examination. However, if you need a third or subsequent attempt to pass the examination, you shall be required to wait for a period of at least fourteen calendar days from the date of your last attempt before you can retake the exam.
  • If a candidate has passed an exam, he/she cannot take it again without prior consent from CompTIA.
  • A test result found to be in violation of the retake policy will not be processed, which will result in no credit awarded for the test taken. Repeat violators will be banned from participation in the CompTIA Certification Program.
  • Candidates must pay the exam price each time they attempt the exam. CompTIA does not offer free re-tests or discounts on retakes.

Customer Review

I feel the uCertify CompTIA Server+ course was quite solid. Since I’m an instructor, I could not help but grade it. I give it an A- overall for both content and the learning management system itself. The content is thorough in its coverage of the exam objectives and I feel added value to my own personal test preparation. The uCertify learning management system is also impressive, with numerous features to help guide and motivate students to complete the course and be prepared for their exam. In both cases, I have a few points of constructive criticism which I will detail in the next section. There was also one glaring error in the content itself. But to recap, I found the course a solid tool for preparing for the Server+ exam and think others will as well.
