Plus, essential exam tips and exercises help you work out your mental muscle memory.

about the technology

The Certified Kubernetes Administrator (CKA) exam proves your skills as a Kubernetes administrator, and it’s a serious test of your competency. There are no multiple-choice questions or essays: the whole test is conducted from the command line, with you performing solutions directly in the terminal. Administered by the Linux Foundation, the certification is recognized by employers worldwide as proof of your ability to configure and manage production-grade Kubernetes clusters.

about the book

Acing the Certified Kubernetes Administrator Exam is a fun, friendly guide to preparing for the CKA. If you’re familiar with Kubernetes, this book will ensure you’re ready to pass in just one month of study. If you’re brand new, this is the perfect primer to get started on your Kubernetes journey.

The book pulls back the curtain on Kubernetes, explaining its complexities and relating its components to tech you probably already know. You’ll quickly get a Kubernetes cluster up and running, learn about common REST methods through the lens of Kubernetes, and master load balancing and networking—all vital skills to master for the CKA exam. Each chapter is accompanied by carefully designed exercises that simulate working in the terminal, just like you’ll face in the CKA. By the time you've finished reading, you’ll be confident and ready for exam day.
