There aren't any Prep Guides to prepare you for the 2 Big Data Professional certification exams. We do have 9 classes, in the SAS Academy for Data Science program that contains the content that will prepare you for the 2 Big Data Professional exams.
There is some information and links posted in this previous Community posting on preparation for the Big Data professional certification exams, here: https://communities.sas.com/t5/SAS-Academy-for-Data-Science/What-are-the-prerequisites-for-big-data-... .
So, there is NOT any “exam prep” or "prep guide" for the Big Data Professional Certification. Just as our Advanced Analytics Program package has 3 modules with 9 classes; the Big Data Program package has 2 modules with a total of 9 classes. The 9 classes in the Big Data Professional package prepare a student for each of the 2 exams. There is NOT any Prep Guide.
We do have a PDF for each of the Big Data exams that shows what will be on each exam:
Exam 1: SAS Big Data Preparation, Statistics, and Visual Exploration
Exam 2: SAS Big Data Programming and Loading
Also, you can visit this web page: https://www.sas.com/en_us/certification/credentials/data-management/big-data-professional.html for the Big Data Professional certification and in the middle of the page, there are 2 links, one for each exam, if you click on each link, you will go to the Certification page for that exam that shows the exam code at Pearson VUE and the information about how to register for the exam.
There are some books available on the topic of Big Data in the SAS Bookstore -- here's a search string to show you all the books: https://www.sas.com/store/search.ep?storeCode=SAS_US&keyWords=big+data&submit=Search but these books are not necessarily geared to the Big Data Professional certification exams.
Information about the Big Data Professional certification training package is available here: https://www.sas.com/en_us/training/academy-data-science/big-data-certification.html
Hope this helps,
