You can get all the needed help from Hortonworks website.

Similar information for HDPCA exam can be found here.
I would recommend attempting the practice exam once you have a thorough understanding of the topics listed in the Exam objectives and data sheet. Since the exam is purely hands-on, practice is the best advise and practice exam is a great place to check your skills!
All the very best for your exam! Let know if you need any other help!
I took HDPCA certification exam last year, and I can tell you the key to pass this exam is practice and practice.
Before the Exam ( time to get prepared)
Take each subject from HDPCA and try to stress very possible scenarios. Hortonworks has a brilliant documentation use them in your preparation. (I used them in my preparation)
By the way, you have a Practise exam available to check if you are prepared to take the exam.
