CCA 175: spark version outdated to use sql on dataframes


Hi all,
I notice that data analysis using spark sql is an important point in the CCA175 spark dev. exam. However the version of spark on the exam (1.6) is too outdated to already include the commands to easily create an object that can be used for direct sql queryine (such as registerTempTable or createorreplacetempview ). ANy though on how this will work??
Also are there any videos for this part available in python on itversity? The section in seems not in line with the spark version used in the exam and looks slightly out of date (no videos, duplicate section.

Many thanks for response!!
