An update was made to the CCA175 Spark and Hadoop developer certification webpage today.
There are two changes that are being announced.
Exams taking in the next few days will still get the old exam and cluster, but this is a notification of changes for later this week.
Based on the recent change in CCA175. As I would plan to write the exam next week. I have pasted few queries for you to address.
I was planning to take certification in next 3 days ( I have not bought exam coupn as of now) , which format I should expect OLD or NEW ?
They aint sure about it; That's what I understood it from @juddimal 's response
When we are satisfied that the new version does not break any existing questions, we will be moving the new version into production. Weare not announcing a date for when the exam content changes. If you wish to make sure that you your exam is with the latest versions of our products, wait to schedule your exam until April. If you wish to take the exam with the old version then schedule immediately. We will be making changes as soon as we can guarantee a proper exam and without any further warning.
That's why its quite uncertain.
Please let us know from when(which date) these changes are going to be effective.
If I bought the voucher already taking account into old syllabus, on which syllabus i have to write the exam ?
Will exam rescheduling charges apply if somebody wants to do as there is change in syllabus?
Why can't be the exam name to be changed from CCA175 to CCA175a (or) some other name as the old syllabus seems to be easy compared to new one? That should be a better way to differentiate.It's my opinion.
I`m planning to take the certification in next week. I have already purchased the voucher. I have few questions
1) Wanted to know from when this changes are applicable?
2) This changes are applicable for only for new buyers or for already puchased vouchers?
