Welcome to the Linux Foundation Forum!

Have my resit in 2 days: One question and one complaint about the exam (NPM docs access)

Hello :)

-My complaint is simple: the documentation of NPM was not accessible during the exam. The main site seemed to be HTML only (perhaps security blocked everything else?) and when I clicked on the link to the documentation, I got an error: I don't remember the exact error, it was something like 'no access'. So all the NPM-related questions were essentially void for me. I'm afraid this will be the case with the resit as well. Has this been fixed perhaps? Or isn't this known?

For example, I could not access this: https://docs.npmjs.com/cli/v6/using-npm/semver or anything from the docs of NPMJS.com.

-My question is somewhat related: I used the official NodeJS docs in the first exam attempt but during my preparation I noticed I can also use guides on NodeJS.org. Am I allowed to use those or am I to strictly stay on this: https://nodejs.org/dist/latest-v14.x/docs/api/ ?

Or can I use anything from here: https://nodejs.org/en/docs/ ? Such as the debugging guide: https://nodejs.org/en/docs/guides/debugging-getting-started/

Thanks in advance for the answers! :)

    hey @ruudhermans I'm guessing you already sat the exam, if you didn't pass this time I'd request another free retake. All of the links you mentioned, should be accessible - I'll follow up on this to ensure that they are.
