Detailed Review Of Preparation

I started preparing for CKAD in January 2020 and had some hands-on already on Kubernetes and Helm before I started actual preparation for certification.

Though I did a course on Udemy by Mumshad for CKAD at Wonderful course with hands-on exercises.

I did the exercises about 2-3 times to quicken my speed and also did exercises on

And few random exercises on internet to do more hands-on practices.


Few tips:

- Exam is of 19 questions and you need to be really quick to complete all of them - try using imperative commands and less of yaml from scratch

- Prepare you vim settings as 1st step to avoid using lot of "spacebar" clicks

- Don't spend much time on questions with low weightage

- Mark the questions in provided notepad and come back to them if any question takes more than 10 minutes.

- Trust yourself and don't revalidate each and everything. Make use of commands like "kubectl get logs", "kubectl get po,deploy,..." instead of describe and get -oyaml everytime unless you are troubleshooting something.

- You can open 1 chrome tab with docs and blogs - so bookmark all the links you may need.

This should be enough to clear the exam.


All the best - remember the test is not that difficult but it validates your confidence on Kubernetes, your speed, accuracy.

Benefits From Certification

  • Knowledge is Power
