Salesforce Certification

Hi All,

 

Can anyone please guide me the exact material which I have to study to clear 401 certification exam.

 

Also if possible please highlight the main topics which I have to study, some sample questions.

 

Any help regarding this would be appreciated.

 

With Best,

TechForce

When I did my DEV401 exam, a simple Google search provided me with plenty of refrences.  In any case, a good one is listed here:

If you've been using Salesforce for a while, the test is fairly basic.  The things that trip people up are the limitations of Salesforce.  How many external reference IDs are allowed on easy object.  How many custom objects does Salesforce support.  What's the best use of an Analytic Snapshot.  Now you only need a 70% or something to pass, so don't rack your brain on everything, but it's important to know the best uses of each field type, each automated process, etc.

Here's a link to the official Study Guide, which outlines the topics to be covered

Also, if you look on iTunes for Salesforce Certification, you can download (for free) classroom training videos of the DEV401 course.

Thanks Ritesh,

 

I have those videos and have the certification guide, just wondering if anyone can help me out with some sample question of latest tests if anyone appeared.

 

Like latest test should have criteria based sharing rules, field set etc.

 

Thanks
