Planning to have MCCA Exam this month.
Is MapR Certified Cluster Administrator Study Guide Book enough to prepare for the exam? Thanks
Hi JohnGener Gellecanao,
There are slight differences between various flavors of Linux and MapR; that's a great observation which will certainly help on the exam!
Currently, our exams are multiple choice. However, in the future we may include lab portions, such as installing and configuring a live cluster.
Gary Fluitt may be able to answer some of your other questions regarding the exam.
In addition to the MCCA Study Guide, you can also take the ADM series of courses, starting with ADM 200 - Install a MapR Cluster to help you prepare for the exam. You will also need strong Linux/Unix and general administration skills in order to be successful.
Best of luck!
Hi Onna Nelson,
Thanks so much for the response.
Yes, I already take the ADM courses.
I take training courses also last year in RedHat.
Base on my observation on the commands, for example in creating
ACL there are differences between maprcli commands
and RedHat Commands. On the exam it does matter or it does not as long you
will understand it's concepts?
Lastly, does the latest exam require you to install/configure Map-R, etc.
or it is still multiple choice base on what I have read on Map-R website?
Thanks and Regards,
Make sure you download the MCCA Study Guide and spend some time with that. There are several sample questions in the guide that will give you a better sense of the scope of the exam.
Thanks Onna Nelson and Gary Fluitt..
Hi Gary Fluitt and Onna Nelson,
What type of multiple choice it could be on the exam?
Can I skip the questions and answer first that I'm sure with or skipping is not possible?
You may skip questions and come back to them. There is a UI to mark questions for later review so you have a list of marked questions you can easily return to. The questions are either multiple choice (choose one correct answer) or multiple select (choose multiple correct answers). The multiple select questions will prompt you for the number of correct answers to choose.
Thanks and Good Luck!
Hi Gary Fluitt,
Thanks for this information and really appreciate your response..
Hi Onna and Gary Gary,
I am able to passed the MCCA 5.1 exam.
Thank you so much for your time answering all of my queries with regards to the exam.
Hoping MapR will create a certification exam on the Data Analysts since I'm planning to review it also.
Cheers and Regards,
Congratulations JohnGener Gellecanao!! We love hearing about our students' success!
