Have you viewed the video and read through the required skills on the CCA-131 certification page?

@Piks I think we may be having a perception issue but lets walk through this and see for sure. When looking over the certification page, the question format is explained:
Each CCA question requires you to solve a particular scenario. Some of the tasks require making configuration and service changes via Cloudera Manager, while others demand knowledge of command line Hadoop utilities and basic competence with the Linux environment.
Looking further down the page, the required skills (see below) should be interpreted as potential questions on the exam. So for instance the first item listed Set up a local CDH repository signifies that you will need to be able show proficiency in setting up a local CDH repository. By looking at the required skills list in this manner, there should be sufficient information available to prepare for the exam. The video with the one example is simply to provide greater context for how the questions will be asked and answered. You should be able to take it from there.
Is there something particular you are looking for in terms of guidance over and above this?
Demonstrate an understanding of the installation process for Cloudera Manager, CDH, and the ecosystem projects.
Perform basic and advanced configuration needed to effectively administer a Hadoop cluster
Maintain and modify the cluster to support day-to-day operations in the enterprise
Enable relevant services and configure the cluster to meet goals defined by security policy; demonstrate knowledge of basic security practices
Benchmark the cluster operational metrics, test system configuration for operation and efficiency
Demonstrate ability to find the root cause of a problem, optimize inefficient execution, and resolve resource contention scenarios
