I took the exam twice and didn’t pass. Did everyone else really pass?

More hands-on practice is needed with migration and backup tools.

Study the videos carefully, pay attention to details. The exam questions are well-designed and are all covered in the videos, but you need to understand and ponder them on your own.

Just watching the video might not leave a deep impression or lead to a thorough understanding. You could try practicing a few times.

PCTP is still somewhat challenging. The 303 video points are not enough, mainly watched the free 302 videos. If passing is considered 80 points, I can’t be sure either.

| username: jiayou64 | Original post link

Take some time to carefully review and take notes. Theoretical stuff will definitely be covered next time.

| username: Jack-li | Original post link

I’ll pass next time for sure!

pcta or pctp? pcta should be quite simple, right? pctp is a bit more challenging, requiring an understanding of all the components of tiup.

| username: zhanggame1 | Original post link

PCTP is simpler than PCTA, you’ll understand once you try it yourself.

| username: zhaokede | Original post link

If 80 points are considered passing, then the pass rate is too low. With 50 questions, the margin for error is not high.

| username: kelvin | Original post link

If it’s about PCTP, it’s better to look more at 303.

| username: 路在何chu | Original post link

The exam is almost entirely based on the content of 303. Reading 302 won’t help.

| username: yytest | Original post link

Can only wait for next time.

303 understanding and operation

Do not take exams just for the sake of taking them. Use exams to promote learning. The TiDB exams are simple in format. For multiple-choice questions, they even tell you how many options to select. If you don’t focus on the technology and answer based on social interactions, you can still get them right. Don’t be discouraged if you fail, and stay humble if you pass. There are many database projects, and the road ahead is long and challenging. Becoming an expert in any sub-project is a long and arduous journey.

Learning without thinking leads to confusion; thinking without learning ends in danger.

Practicing once is better than watching the video several times.

See with clarity, listen with attentiveness, perceive with warmth, appear with respect, speak with sincerity, act with reverence, question with curiosity, reflect on difficulties with calmness, and consider gains with discernment.
