Tip 1 – New Certified Admin!

This week’s guest blogger is Emma Frost who is our Project Manager at Cloud Galacticos, who passed her Admin exam last week, thank you and congrats Emma!

“I don’t use Salesforce as a part of my day to day job, my role is project management and the projects happen to be Salesforce projects. So it was possibly in a moment of madness that I decided to book myself on to the Salesforce Admin 201 exam. I decided to complete the exam onsite and the earliest date I could get gave me 2 and a half months to revise.

Firstly I hit Trailhead, and completed the Trailhead Admin Beginner trail. Then I signed up for Certified on Demand’s Certified Administrator Study Guide.

The best advice I believe was going through the official Salesforce Certified Administrator Exam Guide, Section 5 Exam Outline. Go through each bullet point and make sure you have studied resources relating to each point. I made copious notes covering each section.”

Tip 2 – More Exam resources

Also from Emma…”I also read several blog posts giving advice on strategies and tips for completing the exam including these links from Brent Downey (aka Admin Hero), David Liu (SFDC99) and Ben McCarthy (Salesforce Ben), plus here is a great blog post with loads of links from Jen Lee.”

Seemingly my blog was of no help whatsoever…thanks Emma 😉
