CompTIA Server+ Certification Exam Objectives

The skills and knowledge measured by this exam are derived from an industry-wide and worldwide job task analysis and a survey to validate the job task analysis. The survey results were used to weight the test domains and ensure that the weightings are representative of the job requirements.

This exam blueprint includes the test objectives and the relative weightings. The table below lists the domains measured by this examination and the extent to which they are represented in the examination. Example topics and concepts are included to clarify the test objectives and should not be construed as a comprehensive list of all the content of this exam.

% of Exam
1.0 Installation 17%
2.0 Configuration 18%
3.0 Upgrading 12%
4.0 Proactive Maintenance 9%
5.0 Environment 5%
6.0 Troubleshooting and Problem Determination 27%
7.0 Disaster Recovery 12%
Total 100%

Response Limits
The examinee selects the option that best completes the statement or answers the question from four (4) or more response options. Distracters or wrong answers are response options that examinees with incomplete knowledge or skill would likely choose, but are generally plausible responses fitting into the
content area. Test item formats used in this examination are:

Multiple-choice: The examinee selects one option that best answers the question or completes the statement. The option may be to point and click on a selection that is embedded in a graphic.

Multiple-response: The examinee selects more than one option that best answers the question or completes the statement.

Sample Directions: The examinee reads the statement or question and selects only the option(s) that represent the best answer(s) from the options presented.
