Hello everyone I am new in salesforce and I want to clear Platform Developer 1 exam. Please suggest me study material, tips and dumps so I can prepare well for the exams.
Is Lightning also included in updated syllabus of PD 1 exam?
Things I noticed, before I took exam I watched https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lIZk8cKOFHk&t=6613s the person teaching is teaching in classic while a lot of trailhead is in lightning. He did help me visualize a few questions on the test I would've had no clue on.
Things I would recommend studying is going to every profiles, user, permission sets, validation rule, object and flow and look at what you can and cannot do, and the default settings.
In object such and such pick 2 of 4 things you can do. In this thing what is true?
I'm thinking about retaking it in a week, its a good test, just wasnt ready for that. Thought it would be more scenarios rather than 'what are your options, what is default settings, what went wrong, what things could have not been done right'. It will get you if you are a second guesser or overthinker because you have a lot of options, a lot of questions I noticed you have to pick 2 out of 4 choices, meaning 2 times to second guess yourself in 1 question.
Definitely not easy, but felt like I was closer to passing score of 65% or around there, I felt like I had small chance to pass before hitting the submit answers. I had feeling I did have a feeling I wasn't going to pass before I started the exam but I took it anyways because I kept seeing the message "FAILURE IS AN OPTION". So I'm not too upset I failed, but disappointed.
I'd say my reason for failure was that I was having too much fun in trailhead rather than specifically studying for subjects relating to ADMIN exam. I had over 35 minutes left after answering questions and went back to check answers too for 20 minutes, which I felt good with, but all in all, 18%.
My 2 cents. Good luck to anyone taking it, also look at the flashcards, I didn't look at them but now thinking I would've passed it if I did http://www.sfdc99.com/2014/10/02/guide-to-passing-all-salesforce-certifications/

I just discovered the "How to Be Successful with Salesforce" handbook, however it's over 5300 pages, so I'm wondering if diving into this is the right thing to do or if I'll just get lost in minutia. Here's the link: http://resources.docs.salesforce.com/198/13/en-us/sfdc/pdf/sf.pdf
I completed the Admin Trails before any other training materials, so I'm going to re-do them in a new Dev Org to see if I retain more.
If there are any other study resources that will help me pass the 201, please let me know. I understand that most Admins take this test after being on the job for several months, but I don't have that option as I don't think I'll be able to get an Admin job without being certified since I have no IT experience and no previous experience as an Admin .
Thanks for looking at my question. I am new to SF and am trying to get certified in ADM 201 and DEV 401.
This question goes out to all certified developers and admins with the above completed, recently would be great.
Was looking at the following link:
and am very disapponted. Questions seem to be so specific that nothing my trainer taught me applies.
Want to know the following:
1. Is that exam realistic?
2. What is the best guide to study for the exam ... any suggestion/s are appreciated.
3. Length of time I can expect it will take to complete the same.
I looked at the questions posted previously by other users. Most of links in those replies are not active any more.
Thus I am choosing to post this again.
Thanks for your help,
I am not sure where to post this so I am posing here.
I tried to download ADM201 – study guide from the below link but I am getting 6 page pdf file -
I assume there was something 50+ pages pdf file for ADM 201 study guide.
Anyone knows where to download correct ADM201 study guide?
Anyone from SFDC, pls correct the attachment(study guide). It is linking to wrong pdf.
