I completed and passed the exam, my tips are:
- Start with this: Marketo Certified Expert Preparation Tools
- Read through all the Marketo docs - Product Docs - Marketo Docs - Product Docs (even know some of the stuff can be simple, I suggest read it all, you will find some hidden features when you read the docs which can then appear in the exam)
- Enroll in Marketo Certified Expert Preparation Learning Path in the University and complete all tasks. I find some University courses can be out of date (i.e. use the old pre 2014 UI), so I wouldn't spend most of my time here but if you have time outside of the Marketo Certified Expert Preparation Learning Path then complete other course too
I found the answers I got wrong in the exam, was on the features that I don't use, i.e. Calendar, that's why the Product Docs is so important as it shows you things that you might not use day to day but may appear on the exam. From what I remember the practice exam is close to the actual exam but I wouldn't personally compare it.
When in the exam, they give you an opportunity to mark a question for review and come back later, this was really helpful as when I came back and read it for a second time, I changed my answer.
FYI. I am sitting with Mr. Docs, who joined us recently) right now and he is working on creating new docs that are more dense (more complete) Since I have you on the phone (so to speak) -- Mr. Docs is thinking about creating three categories of articles:
What do you think?
Steve Schaefer = Mr. Docs
I think Tasks and Concepts is easy to grasp, I am not sure what will be in References, but I look forward to looking at it.

Sally Dickson Your post triggered an idea which I am working on. We are creating a Study Group here -- on the Nation Website -- which will be managed by some of our Champions and User Group Leaders. I will send it live over the weekend. Check back w/ me next week. Thanks for raising the flag here!
Frank Breen Thank you for your response. Hope to see you in the Study Group too so you can share your knowledge : !
Yes, that would be very helpful
