CCA-175 Exam Structure


CCA-175 Exam Structure

New Contributor

Hi Team, 


I am planning to appear for CCA-175 exam at the end of this month. Since this is a new exam, I am slightly perplexed about the exam structure. 


1) Is the list of required skills mentioned on the page is exhaustive list of questions asked ? I would be mastering the topics and actions in that list.

2) For Spark codes, Do I need to build code from scratch in .py files/Scala jars or Cloudera will give me a snippet and I will be making chnages to the code? OR I can just use the context and write the code.

3) Can I refer to the documentation mentioned in the exam information page, while taking the exam ?

The Required Skills section on the website gives the high-level testing objectives.  I would not call it exhaustive, but those are the major themes that will be covered in the exam.


In order to save time on the exam, you should expect that most coding questions will give you a template to start from and ask you to fill in relevant sections.


You will not have general Internet access during the exam.  There will not be a search engine, for example.  You will have access to the Cloudera and Apache websites.  The list of documentation from the website will be linked for ease of getting to that documentation.
