I suggest reading over the CCA Data Analyst Exam (CCA159) page as it lists out the required skills and has a sample question.

I think this part of the certification page may be helpful as to why the documentation is available. I added bold for emphasis on the sentence that applies here.
You are given eight to twelve customer problems with a unique large data set, a CDH cluster, and 120 minutes. For each problem, you must implement a technical solution with a high degree of precision that meets all the requirements. You may use any tool or combination of tools on the cluster (see list below) -- you get to pick the tool(s) that are right for the job. You must possess enough knowledge to analyze the problem and arrive at an optimal approach given the time allowed. You need to know what you should do and then do it on a live cluster, including a time limit and while being watched by a proctor.
