I am working as Hadoop Administration since 2 years and i do have worked on installation,configuration for YARN and other components as well. I do have basic knowledge on cluster planning and installation of kerberos security as well.
Now, I am planning to go for Cloudera Hadoop Administrator Certification and before making payments i want to know the difficulty level of the test and also want to know should be prepare topics before giving kick start to exams.
Also, some examples test questions will be helpfull to understand the difficulty level and level of preparation it needed.
Any information will be a great help for me.

This page has information on topics covered (also mentioned in many of the anwered posts in the right sidebar). It’s tough to comment on difficulty - that’s dependent on each person. What I do know is that it is a multiple choice exam.

There's no practice exam, as far as I know. The page I linked to does detail the specific topics to study though.

@sid2707 I can confirm that h@cloudera is correct that there is no longer a practice exam provided. The post you linked to is an older post from a time when there was a practice exam offered. I suggest checking out our community article of certification FAQs. Here is a tidbit from it around study material:
Q - Is there a Study Guide for Exams?
A - There is not a study guide available for exams, but Cloudera tells us exactly what we will be tested on.
For example, the Required Skills at http://www.cloudera.com/content/www/en-us/training

According to me, no one can provide you this kind of answer but you can search materials on google and get the complete study materials.

There is actually a new certification being rolled out. It is completely task based: https://www.cloudera.com/more/training/certification/cca-admin.html
If you've been an administrator for some time, you should be fine.

For this new certification, is there any way to study or train correctly to give the test? Since I understand that it is more practical

Hey, Dear 🙂
I would love to share few study materials for Cloudera Hadoop Administrator Certification course:-
Firstly, you have to manage your time and your study according to the timetable.
Read these books:-
Cloudera Certified Administrator for Apache Hadoop Ccah Exam Unofficial Review Questions and Answers 2016/17 Edition
Cloudera Certified Developer for Apache Hadoop Last Minute Guide: CCD-410
If you have budget, I want to recommend you that you should do the course from Koenig Solutions because I did Hadoop administration course from the same institute 🙂

Previously it was like multiple choice questions and answers ,pretty straight forward.
Now it is more of like Red Hat linux certification , they will you problem to slove in the cluster and you should solve the issue using Couldera manager or command line in hadoop, if i remember correctly sometimes they will also check your linux knoweldge by asking something related to disk space , process state , premission etc
I belive this is an effort taken by cloudera to avoid dumps preparation which is illegal .
Trust me the cource is only for the jump start (4 days u will not learn much ) ,
i learnt pretty much more with my test and trial .
I dont thing the cource or training is enough for the certification . As everyone says read the hadoop definite guide and follow the cloudera forum were u can fish lot of problems and solution. Take some time to get certified . Just letting my thoughts
