The site for the exam is here:  http://www.cloudera.com/content/www/en-us/training/certification/cca-spark.html

 

It is a hand-on exam, so there is not a book that is going to give you all of the answers.  The course Cloudera Developer Training covers the topics as well as giving you hands-on exercises to practice.

That sounds like we can not be confident unless we sign up for Cloudera's training. I welcome the performance based skill testing method but Cloudera should not force us to signup for their training by not spill the beans.

 

I also need to know if we require to code in Scala AND pyhon for all the problems.

Thanks for reply Brad, good to hear from Cloudera folks.

 

Like you pointed out importing data from MySQL sounded really simple to me and thats what made me wonded "what else is in there ?"

 

I'm a self learner, relying on Coursera(for Scala, Python), Edx(Spark) and Cloudera VM. By chance will there be some sample excercie on Clouder VM in future release, it will help developer community a lot since all of us don't get an opportunity to work on all of the exam objectives at work/school.

 

And about my other question, do I need to write program in Scala and Python ? I'm good @Python and just getting started with Scala.
