Re: HDPCD- Spark Exam details

There is currently no practice exam for the Spark exam. If you need experience writing Spark applications on HDP using Python or Scala, I recommend downloading the Sandbox and working through the Hortonworks Spark tutorials.

Also below threads have good details:

I have appeared today for my HDP-spark exam which lasted for 2 hours having 7 questions in total.

Points experienced today :

1.Please go through all the 7 questions first, Prioritize the questions based on your comfort level.

2.Expect the typical Cent-OS cluster behavior such as Ctrl+U , Ctrl+L won’t work in HDP-cluster.

3.No select pattern copy paste as we are able to do in our normal unix box.

4.Cluster is very slow, Please go with recommended bandwidth > 20 MBPS.

5.PSI support may take long time in solving environment issues like exam not getting delivered, DNS configuration at your browser.Please be ready for that.

6.As it’s a time constraint exam, Please don’t waste time on any ques more than 15 mins..

7.Concentrate more on string parsing , input parsing .Remember guys there is no time to think there.We won’t be able to complete 5 ques then.

Personal experience :

People said at many places we need to solve 4/7 ,its actually 5/7 we need to solve. Try to have the exam on desktop machine rather taking on laptop with descent monitor screen.Don’t compromise on bandwidth.

So Best Of luck guys....practice hard before an attempt.

Hortonworks does not create a practice exam. The best one I found can be found here: https://shoptly.com/sparkstudyguide
