You should watch the 101 video course at least once in its entirety and understand the exercises after each lesson. Secondly, you need to understand the principles and functions of each component in the cluster. It is best to read through the official documentation tutorials for each component. That should be sufficient, as the PCTA exam focuses more on principles.

Watch the 101 course, which combines theory and practice. Set up the environment first, then watch a chapter and do the corresponding experiments. The difficulty of version V6 compared to V5 has decreased significantly, making it relatively easier to pass.

Let me tell you a cheat code, I’m not kidding. When doing questions, always trust your first instinct, don’t hesitate. Submit immediately after finishing, don’t check! :sunglasses:

Yes! After checking, I found that I didn’t pass.

:crazy_face: When it was free before, as soon as I checked, it was basically borderline.

Watch the 101 course once, review the notes once, and if there are any unclear points, fill in the gaps by watching the video or reviewing the notes again. It’s all relatively basic theory.
