Become a Certified Cassandra Administrator: Practice Exams
TWO high-quality practice tests with 60 questions each must help you become a certified Apache Cassandra Administrator Associate, passing DataStax Academy's proctored certification exam:
Each practice test has 60 questions, for 90 minutes, with a 70% passing score - just like the real exam.
Domains mapped to areas from the recommended courses: Architecture, Operations, Data Modeling, CQL.
Includes several questions from my other Become a Certified Cassandra Developer: Practice Exams.
All questions are original, with detailed explanations and references.
Questions closely emulate those from the actual exam, without duplicating them.
Same level of difficulty as the latest exam questions, changed in mid-2020.
Unlike the real exam, you'll know right away what questions you missed, and what the correct answers are.
Detailed explanations with external references for any possible choice, in all practice test questions.
Just like the actual exam, questions are all single-select, with four possible choices to select from.
DataStax can provide vouchers to try and retry their exam for FREE, after watching some of their videos.
Otherwise, the list price for the real exam has been cut down to $145 US.
How should I use these tests?
Try first practice test. And do not worry about the time or if you fail. You are expected to fail, this is how you learn...
Stop the exam anytime, if you're not patient enough to go over all 60 questions.
Once done, you get your total score, plus per domain. These are the same domains used in the actual exam.
Click Review Questions and scroll down to both the right and wrong choices for each individual question (remember these!).
Read the detailed Explanation for each question. This is something else you don't have at the actual exam...
Repeat with the second practice test. Don't skip it, as both these tests together cover most types of actual exam questions.
Repeat these tests again and again, until you score at least 90% on each. And then go for the real deal. Good luck!
