I plan to get the CCA 175 in the next couple of weeks, but as I keep studying, I get more confused about the actual material.
The outline is awfully vague, so I had to rely mostly on outside sources. For example, sqoop isn't referred in the training course outline, but it seems that several people had examined on sqoop. However, here's where it gets tricky. Sqoop was official retired this June and after that I don't really know if I am supposed to get prepared for a sqoop question or a "JDBC" format question.
Also, Cloudera Quick VM seems not to be supported and I cannot find any concrete information on the environment the exam is going to take place. It would have been really helpful if there was a couple of pictures online or just a simple walkthrough 3 minutes video.
Is it possible to include some extra details on the material (e.g. Technologies that might be examined etc)?
Thank you in advance
Thank you Vidya.

I am following up here on one small point, just for the record (which is to say for the benefit of people who might arrive at this thread via search engine at some point in the near-to-medium term future). The original question from @vbar included this:
However, here's where it gets tricky. Sqoop was official [sic] retired this June and after that I don't really know if I am supposed to get prepared for a sqoop question or a "JDBC" format question.
I can't speak at all to the question of whether or not the exam will have questions on Sqoop, but I do want to clarify that while Sqoop was moved to the Apache Attic in June 2021, the software will continue to be supported by Cloudera and shipped as part of CDP Public Cloud and CDP Private Cloud. See Cloudera's statement of support on this matter here:
