Original topic: 攒积分,再考一次PCTA

On May 7th this year, I took the PCTA exam. At that time, there was a promotion where you could get points refunded if you passed. Unfortunately, due to my age and the fact that I went out during the May Day holiday, I only managed to watch two lessons of the 101 course before taking the exam. As expected, I only scored 46 points.

Now, half a month has passed, and my determination to take the PCTA exam has grown stronger. I’ll accumulate points and take it again!

There’s no need to be so obvious, [smiling through tears]. You can get five points for checking in every day, and eight points for replying to technical posts. :v:︎(ᐛ):v:

Watching video lessons is slow; you can also read a bunch of articles summarizing the TiDB architecture online.

PCTA is all about principles. It’s easier to understand the roles and principles of each component.

Having taken the V5 PCTA exam 7 times, you should be happy. The difficulty of the V6 version has decreased significantly compared to V5.

Keep it up! I accumulated points by signing in continuously. It took me almost two years to complete all three certificates.
