Will the actual exam will also be an html file separate from the 'Ambari' screen? And, where are our answers recorded?

New Contributor

Hi,

I went through the practice exam and while attempting it I wasn't sure where should I be posting my answers. Will I have a html in the actual exam as well independent of the 'Ambari' screen where we see the status of our cluster?

Also, where am I supposed to post the answers. I launched a terminal in the environment provided and it was working fine. But, wanted to be sure if that is a right approach.

One last question: How are our answers evaluated. Are they evaluated on the result that we achieve or the way we achieve it matters too?

To be specific, I performed a task which took 3-4 iterative steps to complete from my side, but there could be a possibility that the task could be performed in a single go. Either way the task was completed.

So, the end result is evaluated or the way of reaching the end result is evaluated as well?

Regards

Saurabh

  • The real environment looks the same as the practice environment
  • The tasks are displayed differently though - on the real exam, the tasks appear in a separate pop-up window that you can move around
  • Each task will tell you where to save your answer. For example, Task 1 might tell you to save your script in a file named /home/horton/solutions/task1
  • The answers are evaluated by the output. There are always different ways to solve problems in programming. It is not the code we are interested in - it's the result. You need to execute your code on the real exam and it needs to generate the desired output described in the task instructions. (If a task has no output, it is immediately marked as wrong.)
  • Each task is worth 1 point and it is either correct or wrong - there is no partial credit.
  • The current HDPCD exam has 7 tasks and you need to get 5 correct to pass. (This is subject to change at any time.)
