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.
The above community link says there is a practice test before and also if there is no practice test then how will I get to know the format of questions
@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
