Certified Kubernetes Administrator (CKA) Exam Resources
Well if you all want an exam that will actually test your deep knowledge of Kubernetes from a hands on level then you may have found your match.
The post here is broken down into three area to not only provide insight on how to prepare for the exam but also some study resources I used. The reality is that this is a hands on exam and you will be expected to know command line syntaxes for Kubernetes.
The first part of the blog post is focused on the exam expectations, costs and preparation requirements.
The last part of the blog is where I share resources I used to study for the exam and prepare for the exam. This is a niche exam and there is not a lot of information out there.
I did not actually take the official course since I have been a Google Cloud, Blockchain and DevOps focused SME for years so I had most of the knowledge before preparing.
You will need to be very disciplined to pass this exam.
