Salesforce Advanced Administrator Certification Tips

I took Salesforce Advanced Administrator certification exam on 31st Jan’17 and cleared it. In this post, I am going to write down how I approached this certification and my study materials as well.First, to start you, you need the Salesforce Advanced Administration Certification guide. You can download the same from here. The exam format is -Number of questions: 63Type of questions: Multiple-ChoicePassing Score: 65%Time: 90 MinutesSo basically you need to answer ~41 questions correctly. Note – You need to clear Salesforce Certified Administration Certification before this certification. Strategy:I followed the below strategy by reviewing the certification guide and bucketing the items based on their weightages. This is the formula I followed, topics with more than 10% weightage are my priority items and rest of the items are kind of last minute items to check. With the above strategy, I came up with the below list -Security and AccessSales Cloud ApplicationsService Cloud ApplicationsData ManagementChange ManagementAnalytics, Reports and DashboardsProcess AutomationBut definitely, I was not sure whether I can answer all the questions correctly from above lists.

Salesforce Platform Developer – I Certification Tips

I have cleared another Salesforce Certification yesterday – It’s Platform Developer – I. In this post, I am going to share my study notes. Hopefully it will help others as well.If you are an experienced developer or admin having more than 6 months of experience, it is very easy to clear this certification. But if you are new to Salesforce, then I think this study note is going to help you. I found 50% – 60% questions are scenario based.During the exam, I am sure you will get multiple questions which will make you confuse in terms of more than one correct answers. My suggestion is that read the question/scenario 2-3 times, there will be one/two words which will lead to the correct answer. If you still not able to find the correct answer, mark the question for review and go to the next question. Don’t spend too much time in one question.Note – Don’t treat this as a Certification dumps. Rather the intention of the post is to share my strategy, topics I covered during my preparation.Another important point to mention here is that when I gave this certification the release from Salesforce was Winter’17. With every release, Salesforce brings new features so you need to go through the release notes as well.Let’s start by topics mentioned in the Certification Syllabus. Salesforce Fundamentals [Weighting: 10% i.e. # of Questions: 6]Describe...
