Re: How different is HDPCD exam from the practice exam?

No worries, sorry if I misunderstood. The level is the same.Of course the questions and datasets are different but the tasks are similar in nature. If you comfortable finish all tasks in the practice, I have a high level of confidence you can pass the actual exam. try finishing under 2 hrs to best simulate the actual exam.

Hope that this helps.

The actual exam is hosted by a proctoring company so it adds a wrapper for chat (with the proctor). The screen may look a bit different because of the wrapper, but the underlying cloud VM is the same in format and HDP version.

I should have been more clearer. I know about how the exam is conducted. What I wanted to know is, the difficulty level. How difficult is real exam compared to the practice exam?
