CCA 175 review timelines

New Contributor

Hi,

I gave the test on 1/10 and though I got the score card by EOD, I am yet to get the review/certification.

There was no response both via mail and call to get more information on timelines.

So what is the average time taken for review of CCA 175 tests?

 

Regards,

Bala

Hi Kalyanhadoop, so in the programming questions, can we choose between scala and python for coding or we have to write programs in both scala and python.- thanks

New Contributor

if the question is on scala means , we need to provide solution in scala only.

 

if the question is on python means , we need to provide solution in python only.

Hi Kalyan,
I am quite new to Hadoop world and looking some guideline related to preparation path ( link,sample test papers,book etc) which might be helpful?

The details about the exam are on Cloudera's website:  http://www.cloudera.com/training/certification/cca-spark.html

 

Cloudera offers a course that covers these topics and give you hands-on exercises to practice these skills:  http://www.cloudera.com/training/courses/developer-training-for-spark-and-hadoop.html?course=develop...

 

There are multiple books covering the basics of Hadoop, including Hadoop: The Definitive Guide

 

The website also shows you all of the skills that will be tested, so you could use that as a basis for your own self study.

Thanks for providing details related to training for certification 

Training is meant for Developers,Administrators and Data Analysyts

 

So, question is:

 

1. What is the equvalent of CCA175 ( Developers) for Data analysts? it seems CCP(DE575) is the only

     certification track for data analysts

 

2. I am more interested in CCA175 certification, do I need to brush-up/learn python before i take training or

    appear for certification? it seems working knowledge of python is neccessary to qualify CCA175?

 

3. Is cloudera training neccessary or advisable if someone is new to Hadoop before appearing  for ceritification

    exam?

 

Just to give my back ground , I am in Database enginering,data modeling,data architecture for the last more than 15 years and mainly in Unix/linux/AIX environment. No JAVA experience.

1) The Developer course maps the the CCA175.  The CCP DE575 is a difficult exam meant to test development mastery.  A data analyst taking this exam would be very unhappy.  DE575 most closely maps to our Big Data Applications course (plus some years of experience).

 

We currently do not have a certification path that maps to our Data Analyst course, but you should continue to watch the website for announcements.  http://www.cloudera.com/training/certification.html

 

2) Look on the community site for the subject below this one labelled "Spark Scala AND Python"

https://community.cloudera.com/t5/General-Questions-Training/CCA175-Spark-Scala-AND-Python/m-p/36070...

 

3) The testing objectives for our certifications are close to the learning objectives for the courses, and the courses have exercises that will help you practice for the practical nature of the exam.  The training is not required, however.

 

4) There is no Java on the exam, but there is development work that needs to be done.  See question 2.

You can also see all of the skills required at: http://www.cloudera.com/training/certification/cca-spark.html

Thanks,

Thanks for your response.
How can I install sandbox ( single/multi node) version of Hadoop on my
windows-7 Laptop? I would like to explore and learn hadoop
usage.

Expert Contributor

You can run a virtual environment such as VM Ware on your Windows box and use an image from Cloudera.

Congratulations!
So how long it took you to prepare for the exam and get such good marks in it? plus you had any background of any of the hadoop technologies before you started preparing for it?

New Contributor

Thanks,

 

I knew C++ as well as I took Hadoop training. After I completed my training, I've been practicing for test almost 7-8 months. Now, I feel like I am ready give a shot but I am still hesitant due to the fact that Cloudera changed CDH 410 to CCA-175. This is the reason why I am looking for CCA 175 exercises.

Expert Contributor

There are no exercises or practice exams for the new hands-on practical exams.

 

Our Cloudera Developer Training for Spark and Hadoop teaches you all the skills to pass the exam and gives you days worth of hands-on practice.

 

If you do not wish to take our training or cannot afford it, there are hundreds of free resources on the internet. For example, if I point my browser to the List of objectives from our website. I then copy the first objective and search on it, I get dozens of free docs and training on the skill.

 

Objective: Import data from a MySQL database into HDFS using Sqoop
sqoop.apache.org docs on importing data using Sqoop
Importing Data into HDFS using Sqoop
Video demonstration of user importing data from MySQL to HDFS using Sqoop

 

This can be done for any of our exams. Of course the quality of materials freely discovered on the internet differs greatly, as does the discount training vendors, which is why we only recommend Cloudera training.
