    Is this not a hands on exam? It looks like from what you posted its a multiple guess?

    I know that Linux Academy is doing Puppet training for the cert...And Team Treehouse has training for Ruby.

    Puppet != Ruby. Chef is more associated with Ruby tbh. I'm very slowly working my way through the puppet course on linuxacademy, very well put together. Not sure when I will get to the exam.

    Looks like a Q&A exam being provided via Pearson VUE.

    Practise questions are available here.
