    Salesforce Admin Certification - Any tips?

    Rachit Puri



      I am planning to start preparing for Salesforce Admin certification. I have been working in Salesforce in past few years (building campaigns, reports etc.) Does anyone have any study material which I could use? Would request you to share any tips, which can help me.

          Rachit, great that you are going to add this certification to your skillset.


          I have this certification, here are some tips I followed:


          You'll want to follow a study course. Certified Ondemand (www.certifiedondemand.com) is one of the best and very affordable. You can also look at the topics, and then study the salesforce documentation on your own.


          The path is important because even at the basic administration stage the amount of knowledge is vast and you can easily spend days studying something that will not be on the exam.


          Next is that you should use the study guide and build out the scenarios, it's easier to remember all the steps and conditions if you have constructed the solution rather than memorizing process steps.


          This is strictly my opinion, but for studying purposes I wouldn't follow the trailblazer path. Much of the content in trailblazer is for advanced versions of the salesforce certification.

            Hello,  I just passed my SFDC Admin test.  I found the practice tests at Focus on Force to be excellent preparation.  They have very realistic questions, which I found more important than I initially thought.  If you get used to the way the questions will be asked you have a lot better shot at remembering the right answers and spotting the wrong answers.  I believe they also have prep courses but I didn't take them so I can't offer an opinion on that part.  I also used Trailhead quite a bit, especially to cover the parts of SFDC that I don't personally use.  .
