Can we leave Hive context for CCA175 certification?

Can I just focus on sqlContext and Python context. Are there questions from hive context in exam?

Soon they are going to use 1.6.2 version of Spark on the cluster used for exam. If you know Spark SQL, go for it. It can save time.

As @rahulabvp have mentioned, you can choose technology of your choice to take the exam. They only care about results.

Does not matter what you use in exam. All cloudera cares about end results stored in proper format in the given location.
