MongoDB Associate Developer Python Exam Topics

Hi MongoDB team,

I am preparing for the MongoDB Developer Exam- Python. I am following this guide to prepare for the exam which is given below[link1] :

However, when I read this guide[link2] → https://10geneducation.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/213550903-What-topics-are-tested-on-the-C100DEV-MongoDB-Certified-Developer-Associate-Exam-

I found that some topics that are not given in link1 when compared with link2 are not same, such as sharding and replication. so, which link should I follow?
and also can you please share the exam guide that I should follow to prepare for the exam because there is so much inconsistency online?

I also had the same question. So, per the new exam guide, there is no replication, sharding related words. Is it safe to exclude them from the preparation? Please confirm. Thanks.

Hi @Nandhini_Madanagopal,

As per new Associate Developer Exam study guide, you can safely skip replication and sharding from your preparation for the MongoDB Associate Developer Exam.

Kind Regards,
