I would like to discuss on the CCA131 attempted examination.
Whom should I contact?
Is there any way to share our experience and give feed back on the certification questions and I believe CCA131 needs lots of improvement.
Hi @voruganti_vishw. Your best course of action is to email email@example.com about your concerns. The certification team will then look into them and reply to you via email.

Thanks a lot for your reply.
Would like to get some technical explanation on the questions asked in CCA131.
Whom should I contact?
and I got a statement from Certification team which is like below:
"you must accept the questions that we ask you on the exam"
And I believe the questions should be valid as per the topics present in list of topics provided in CCA131 topics list and the weblink for the same is:
Unfortunately, I got a question from a topic listed in CCA Spark and Hadoop Developer topics and the topic list for the same is:
Do I need to accept the question yet and if it is yes then there will be no clarity on the topics for CCA131 and I believe CCA131 questions quality has to be improved from non-technical perspective.
I am wondering if I need to get ready for all certificaiton topics like Spark Developer Admin etc so that I can fit to the statement given by Cloudera -
"you must accept the questions that we ask you on the exam" :( :(
The certification team is the authority on the exam. That being said I'll send you a private message to get some additional information that cannot be shared publically.
Thanks for your private message
I have 2 major concerns with the CCA131 examination and I am in communication with certification team but I believe the statement "You have to accept the questions in Certification" is not 100% correct.
Can someone help me on this?
It is tough to believe the curriculum of CCA131.
Cloudera might be confused and mixed questions from other curriculum.
Can cloudera give answer on this?
I have forwarded your concerns expressed here and via private message to the certification team. They did confirm that they investigated the question involved and determined that it was covered under the CCA Administrator Certification page's listed required skills.
Hi There, I need some help understanding the CCA131,,,, I am a unix admin for past few years and wants to go for big data. As i understand ( correct me If I am wrong) , there is also a administration for big data under cca131..
So my question to community expert:--
1:-- Is it ok to persue CCA131 for unix administration
2:--I don't have any coding skills, does this matter in learning
3:-- how to prepare for exams, and are there any exams dumps available for pracise.
1:-- Is it ok to persue CCA131 for unix administration - Yes , a little bit of Core Java Concepts could help you land smoothly because the hadoop logs are generated in java and python.
2:--I don't have any coding skills, does this matter in learning - When you want be Hadoop Administrator you dont need to be hard corder however a little bash scripting could help you with some tasks . Also something like chef ,puppet or Ansible .
3:-- how to prepare for exams,
You can spin up quickly a Single Node cluster using QuickStartVm almost 80% of it you use it for preparation for your exam . Some books to read before exam- Hadoop Operations and Hadoop Definitive guide.
Hope this is suffice
