Amy - I would say to try to get close to 100% on the practice exam to hedge your bets and you'll do fine.  I would also recommend reading the product documentation thoroughly (found above under products and support) to cover the rest.  Everything you need to know is in there.  Good luck!

I scored 94% - 97% on the practice exams and an overall 71% on the exam - so there are some significant areas that are not covered in the practice exam.  Ideally Marketo would republish the practice exam(s) so they at least cover all of the areas in the actual exam.  It as though the practice exam(s) were not updated when the exam changed 😞

Yes...and they do tell you the topics on the exam...so if the practice exam isn't showing you those topics, then you may want to work on those areas.

On the 2015-16 tests, which were similar, I found weird questions on the real exam:

  • Calendar pops up alot. These are hard if you don't use it everyday.
  • "Where is this button" questions ...very specific, very easy to fail.
  • More attribution and Program questions...which is a bit odd for a non RCE/RCA exam.

Good to know - I've never used the calendar before. Can you expand on

"attribution and program questions"?

Hi Josh,

Yes that's it - lots of questions around program and calendars

Can you give expand on "attribution" ?  Also any thoughts on where we can gain insight into the Marketo caldendar so for those of us who don't use it can be prepared to answer those questions.  Thank you!

I just found a good resource for understanding attributions

This should be a great place to start for concepts on the Marketing Calendar:

Marketing Calendar - Marketo Docs - Product Docs

I didn't use the marketing calendar all that much when I passed my certification, so I used this Doc as a valuable resource.
