You mark this as solved ... But, that is not correct. It is not solved...
We understand Cloudera Training provides all the necessary information for this exam...
Any certification should provide study materials...
Especially when the training is not mandatory and also for those who don't want to take an expensive training (not all will be able to take it) and may want to use a study material and do the hands-on on their own to get this certification...
It will be great If Cloudera could provide a study material (paid one) for this course (I am not talking about a free study material)...

The original poster of the thread felt their question was resolved and marked it as such. Can you further explain what you feel should be included in a low cost study material for the exam?

From the community FAQ on certification.
The answer is yes, there are questions using both languages.
However, please remember that the goal of the exam is to test your Spark knowledge, not your Scala and Python knowledge. The development questions typically provide you some code and ask you to fill in TO-DO sections. So the key is to understand the Spark API. You must have some knowledge of programming, as you will need to be able to read the existing code and understand how to store and retrieve the results you get back from calling the API, but the focus will be on you adding the Spark calls.

Bumping this slightly to get more up to date answers on study materials. There's a book on amazon for CCA 175 which looks decent but seems to be a cheat sheet more than anything else.
Other certifications, e.g. SAS advanced cert, do offer a study guide too. It's a shame that Cloudera don't do that.
