I plan to get certified on CCAH(CCA-500), I have gone thru the objectives specified at http://www.cloudera.com/training/certification/ccah.html.
I would like to know if there would be cloudera manager specific questions. That is any questions which are specific to cloudera hadoop release.
If there are questions around cloudera hadoop, could anyone suggest resources around it.

Cloudera attempts to make these industry-wide certifications, not just on the CDH platform. There are no questions that are specific to Cloudera Manager or any other Cloudera specific tool.
The CCA-500 is specific to the CDH5 release. It will not ask questions that are dependent on minor releases, ie there are no questions that will ask the differences that may occur between CDH5.6 upgraded to CDH5.7, but there may be questions that require you to know the differences between CDH4 and CDH5.

Thanks for responding.
To clarify, there would be questions around new features of CDH5, difference between CDH4 and CDH5 etc. Are these not cloudera release specific.

CDH4 and CDH5 are Cloudera specific releases. They are not Cloudera specific tools.
There will not be questions about Cloudera Manager. There will not be questions about Cloudera Director. There will not be questions about Cloudera Navigator. Each of these products begin with the name "Cloudera", and as such are Cloudera specific tools.
There will be questions about daemons. This is a CDH5 exam. If asked what daemons need to be running, you must answer with the daemons that are needed in CDH5. If you chose the daemons that were present in CDH4, you will be marked as wrong (assuming that the daemons changed between versions).
