Is it enough to just finish the 101 course to take the PCTA exam? I just signed up and am ready to start reviewing the key points and practicing questions.

It’s enough to get a course completion certificate by reaching 80%. Of course, it’s best to watch everything~

Indeed, you only need to look at 101, or you can directly search for TiDB architecture on the internet.

In addition to watching the course videos, if you have enough time, I suggest reading through all the official documentation as well and trying to understand it as much as possible. After the exam, you’ll find that a lot of the content is covered in there.

Watch the video several times. The exam questions still test the overall knowledge mastery, which is much more difficult than the video’s after-class exercises.
