CCA175 exams: Help regarding the exam environment

CCA175 exams: Help regarding the exam environment

Explorer

Hi guys,

 

I wanted to get some clarifications on a few things regarding the CCA175 exam environment that Cloudera have issued.

 

  1. There is only a single terminal which should prevent any issues with lag as had previously been experienced during the exam.

 

There are multiple interactive shells to do the work.

 

I'm not sure what this means. Does it mean:

 

  1. a) I can open up more than one shell at any one time.
    b) I can only open one shell but can choose between spark-shell & pySpark

 

  1. There is no text editor in the new, simplified environment.

 

I'm not sure what this means. Does it mean:

 

  1. a) There is no Word, notepad, notepad++ etc but can still use vi or nano.
    b) There is no Word, notepad, notepad++ etc and cannot use vi or nano.

 

  1. All websites, including Google/search functionality and access to Spark external packages, are disabled. You may not use notes or other exam aids.

 

I'm not sure what this means. Does it mean:

 

  1. a) I have no access to Spark documentation.
    b) I have access to Spark documentation.


Before the senior posters, mods & bots suggest I contact the certification team, I did!

 

This is the less than helpful reponse they gave me!

 

Unfortunately there is no further information we can share on this.

 

All the information required for taking these exams is found on the related certification page and this is the same information that is made available to everybody.

 

There is also the option of revisiting the community forum and reviewing feedback etc. from other users who may have chosen to share their perspective.
