You want to take an exam, but it’s all about points exchange. You’ve seen the points rules, but accumulating points is so slow! Another way is through third-party educational institutions, but there’s no discount, and no courses to exchange, only exam vouchers! I’m so frustrated…

So, I’m asking you all, how can I quickly earn points?

Write an article worth 100-600 points.
Reply to more questions.
Basically, you can finish the course.

You can get 80 points by replying 10 times a day, 5 points for continuous check-ins, and a few hundred points by watching free videos.

Taking PCTA as an example, PCTA requires 1599 points for redemption, the exam courses are free, and certification points can be accumulated in just 9 days.

One-time score: 550

Complete company information: 50
Complete personal information: 20
Bind Github account: 10
Bind email: 10
Bind phone number: 10
Complete 101-TiDB Quick Start course: 50
Complete 201-TiDB Cluster Architecture and Features course: 50
Complete 301-TiDB System Management Basics course: 50
Complete 302-TiDB Advanced System Management course: 100
Pass practitioner certification: 100
Publish technical articles & columns: 100 (for newcomers, this can be practical deployment, so it's included in one-time points)

Entry-level newcomers can repeatedly earn points, calculated based on the daily limit, averaging 119 points per day.
(Once proficient in TiDB, there will be more ways to earn points.)

Check-in: 5
Post questions: 5x3=15 (considering practical situations, calculated as 3 questions per day)
Mark self-posted questions as 'Best Answer': 5x3=15
Answer questions: 8x10=80
Participate in weekly tea talks: 30/7=4

By only calculating one-time points and repeatable points, it takes just 9 days to accumulate enough points. This does not include potential points from being liked, marked as a solution, publishing articles, participating in events, etc.

Friendly reminder: Spam posts will result in zero points and may lead to a mute or ban depending on the situation. Actually, by asking questions based on practical usage and participating in community activities, you can accumulate enough points before you are capable of certification. You can even ask questions about video course content to continuously improve the courses.

Points are hard to earn.

Friendly Reminder: Posting irrelevant content will result in your points being reset and may lead to a mute or ban depending on the situation. Actually, by asking questions based on actual usage and participating in community activities, you can accumulate enough points even before you are able to get certified. You can even ask questions about the video course content to continuously improve the course.

It’s already very affordable, don’t you think? Look at that dreamer, even the A certification is ridiculously expensive.

Haha, DM started relatively early and it is not open source.

Real-name authentication, binding corporate email, and binding GitHub account all have points.

Your comment is very heartfelt, and you even took the time to compile it.
