The practical oriented certification exam was really a great idea for Hadoop. It was challenging as well.
It was refreshing to be tested on a real set of machines. I could bring to bare all of my experience with linux, networking and the command line as well as my experience with Hadoop together to solve problems and do real work, in a way a multiple-choice test just can’t. It also meant I could combine approaches that exist in the real world for speed or ease that may not be honored in a constrained example. Thanks, it was a fun test to take!
It was a great exam and required a lot of study and knowledge of Hadoop. Keeping in mind the time constraints and number of questions to complete, this exam can teach you a lot. And questions test your knowledge – from mostly all of the prominent Hadoop tools which i like the most. I felt very confident after clearing this exam and right now I am working on a huge dataset in my current job.
