The old exam, XK0-004, won’t retire until Monday, January 16, 2023. You can take either exam in the next five months.

I scheduled my online exam for the last day to give myself two months of studying time. I got the “CompTIA Linux+ Certification All-in-One Exam Guide: Exam XK0-004” by Ted Jordan. I should pass since I used Linux since the late 1990s.
