About the test

The System administrator (sysadmin)/system engineer online test assesses a candidate's knowledge of setting up and maintaining computer systems.

It's an ideal test for pre-employment screening. A good system administrator needs to have knowledge of upkeep, configuration, and reliable operation of system software, hardware, and computer systems, especially servers. They also ensure that these systems run efficiently and effectively.

This online test requires candidates to answer multiple-choice questions about different parts of computer systems, and procedures that keep such systems up and running.

Decorative quote

Simple, straight-forward technical testing

TestDome is simple, provides a reasonable (though not extensive) battery of tests to choose from, and doesn't take the candidate an inordinate amount of time. It also simulates working pressure with the time limits.
