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.
During the Exam
- Read each question carefully.
- You will have 2 hours to finish the exam, this is enough time to do it and still get to check it out.
- If you find any questions that you do not know you can use the documentation that is available within the exam environment
After the Exam
Wait for your results.
