All of this discussion is out of date, and none of the links work.
Where is the prep for the most recent exam?
The newest link to the Certification resources page is here: Marketo Certified Expert
but... I get the feeling that will be updated/replaced in a few weeks so when that happens I'll be by to update the link. As for the prep materials, the Education department here has moved that content into the Marketo University.
If you are already logged into the Marketo University, these are the current links. If you are not already logged in, these links will simply take you to the homepage where you can use the search term "MCE Prep".
There is a virtual session that is available here: https://learnadmin.marketo.com/ContentDetails.aspx?id=B261C54E880346B89B5D60057556B82B
and a OnDemand recording available to passport holders here: https://learnadmin.marketo.com/ContentDetails.aspx?id=850B24EB6B6049CF8DE284AFDAF45EAC
Thanks. Yes these are the correct links.
Fortunately I passed the exam last night . Eureka! Quite a lot of panicking when I realised I had nothing to revise against, then 6 hours studying from 9-5, but then I do use Marketo 6 hours a day.
Hi Philip Tieu
I can't find a study guide for the MCE exam. There are the sample questions in the link you gave, but no guide of what to study for the course. There was a guide a couple of weeks ago but now I can't find it. I was part way through the prep course recording but now that summit has passed, it won't let me access it, whereas I thought you only needed to access it before summit to get it free. I am certified but need to renew my certification.
So, can you post a link to the study guide please?
You need to take a look at this discussion:
The preparation is no longer free but paid for, but it was a good course.
That links to this discussion! I did find the exam study guide here for anyone else looking, but only through googling is as there didn't appear to be any direct links to it:
I know it is paid for now, I'm a freelance and have to pay my own way, so I prefer to do my own studying, especially as the recording that I'd worked part way through was not in depth enough to each me anything. I've been using Marketo for 8 years now but take nothing for granted in preparing for exams!
I agree - the prep material did not do a good job of preparing people for the exam. It was EXTREMELY difficult and I use Marketo on the daily. I passed the exam; however, I still feel I could have been better prepared and some of the questions just seemed like trick questions. I was very anxious taking this test because I felt like I went in "blind".
Like Robb I am very disappointed I failed especially after all that I know and the prep time I put into taking the test.
I feel there were easy questions that were deliberately made confusing so that the test designers could feel good about making the test difficult. I also feel the multiple choice format a very poor choice - it's a visual tool. Use screen shots.
This thread is in response to the 2015 exam, aka #CertGate. The exam has been re-written several times since this abomination and is now much better at showing proficiency in Marketo.
