Recently I appeared for CKAD exam and I am summarizing some resources hopefully that will help someone. I have been using Kubernetes for sometime so I am familiar with core concepts and daily uses.

I spent a week to prepare before appearing for the exam.

Prepration:

I followed below resources to prepare myself:

  1. CKAD Exercises: Github Link (Free)
  2. Udemy Course Name: Kubernetes Certified Application Developer (CKAD) with Tests (Paid)
    - Special thanks to instructor of this course.

Test Environment:

To get familiar myself with CKAD exercises, I had deployed GKE cluster on Google Cloud Platform. It usually takes few seconds to set it up and couple of minutes before you can start using Kubernetes cluster.

Result:

I was able to pass the exam using above resources. I appreciate communities and users contribution to support resources which I referred.
