Just wanted to share that I have received mail from Cloudera today(after 13 hours approx.) that I have passed the CCA 175 certification. I got 7 pass and 2 were marked as number of records not matching. Most probably because i used distinct in the query.
Regarding exam, the environment was working fine. Copy/paste was using right click. I opened 2 different instances of terminal. I used pyspark on one and hdfs commands on another to check the files are getting saved or not. Tried to launch using pyspark2 but it was not working and used pyspark then which was set to used pyspark version 2 by default.
Questions were easy, mostly converting one format to another with some basic transformations like using substring or concatenating.
I prepared using Raju Sir’s Udemy course and then practiced questions using some other course in udemy.
Now waiting for Cloudera to share the certificate and license number.
