Queries regarding new CCA175 2020 pattern

New Contributor

Hi Cloudera Certification Team,


Queries regarding new CCA Spark and Hadoop Developer Exam (CCA175) - 2020


Q1) Other than Spark,Kafka, Impala and Hive, is there any components like Sqoop, Flume, Pig, MySql included in 2020 new syllabus? Because it seems new syllabus covering more on spark knowledge


In addition to that, the components were being mentioned at the bottom of the page previously, there are no details like that anymore.


Q2) I have seen video of the new exam environment for CCA, other than Apache Spark documentation is there any other CDH / HDP documentation available for reference? 


Q3) Regarding configuration

This is a practical exam and the candidate should be familiar with all aspects of generating a result, not just writing code.Supply command-line options to change your application configuration, such as increasing available memory

Do we have access to Cloudera Manager UI to verify configuration details or we have only access to command line interface throughout the examination?

Hi @raj_kumar 


Seeing as some time has passed and this question has not been adequately answered by the bots & "experienced" members of this esteemed forum it would be helpful if you could write a proposed answer to your original query.


Thanks sir.
