Cleared CCA-175 on 04/11/2019

Hello,

I have cleared the exam with 8/9 score. I would like to thank durga and Arun, Durga’s youtube playlist and Arun’s blog were really helpful.
I would also like to thanks @Ambuj , his replies to my questions were great help too.

Initially I had it scheduled on 03/21 but it got cancelled twice due to cloudera’s technical issue, then I scheduled on 04/09 and exam didn’t launch, finally I was able to complete it on 04/11.

Good Luck Everyone!

Hi @Goraj - Thanks for sharing. I have the exam next week. Do they ask Impala or to use RDD instead of Spark-SQL? Can we use Spark-SQL for all transformations? Any example on what kind of transformations?

@Goraj, Congrats.
I read in some other group that sqoop question was vague without proper column names, did you had such question?

Please can you tell the kind of question asked from Hive.

Also, did you launch spark-shell with executor parameters?
Can we launch spark-shell without any parameters?
