1:-- Is it ok to persue CCA131 for unix administration
2:--I don't have any coding skills, does this matter in learning
3:-- how to prepare for exams, and are there any exams dumps available for pracise.

1:-- Is it ok to persue CCA131 for unix administration - Yes , a little bit of Core Java Concepts could help you land smoothly because the hadoop logs are generated in java and python.
2:--I don't have any coding skills, does this matter in learning - When you want be Hadoop Administrator you dont need to be hard corder however a little bash scripting could help you with some tasks . Also something like chef ,puppet or Ansible .
3:-- how to prepare for exams,
You can spin up quickly a Single Node cluster using QuickStartVm almost 80% of it you use it for preparation for your exam . Some books to read before exam- Hadoop Operations and Hadoop Definitive guide.
Hope this is suffice
