Start spark-shell in HDPCD spark exam: launch spark-shell or pyspark on AWS

pyspark
spark-shell
aws
spark

#1

Hi All-
I appeared for hortonworks - HDPCD Spark exam.
In the whole exam, I was unable to launch the spark-shell and proctor was not able to provide any help with that.
When i run the command “spark-shell” or even “pyspark”- it just gave an error - command not found.
Same thing happened when i tried to launch on AWS Spark-Practice instance as depicted on the website. I didnt even find sbt available.

If anyone has any insights on how to run this in AWS, please share your experience.

Thanks,
Sandeep
