About the test

The Apache Spark online test evaluates a candidate's knowledge of the Spark framework, how to use it to configure Spark clusters, and how to perform distributed processing of large data sets across clusters of computers.

It's an ideal test for the pre-employment screening of candidates applying for roles such as Spark developers, testers, and administrators.

This test requires candidates to answer questions based on Spark infrastructure, its configuration, and running transform and action operations on data sets.
