Just took it last month and the exam is based off Spark 1.x. There is no limit about how you should solve the problem, so RDD, dataframe, spark SQL all could be used depends on which you feel comfortable with.

HDPCD Spark certification has 7 questions, you need to get 5 correct to pass the certification. No multiple choice. All questions should be solved programmatically. No credit for partial results.

You will be given access to pyspark and spark-shell and access to API, to implement and test the logic of your applications.
