The community of users wishing to obtain Salesforce Certifications is ever growing. However, the road is not always easy. We encourage everyone to share their stories and remind us that we are not alone.
After 30 minutes of wondering if I had perhaps signed up for the wrong exam, the torture was over and I left to admit to my family I had failed.
1 month of intense studying later I could build, export, design and even intentionally break my dev environment. I thought for sure this would be the time, that I knew how to use Salesforce.
Attempt two yielded the same results, confusion of what exactly I was supposed to know. Around this time I came into contact with groups of individuals who had just passed their exams and revealed what helped them. Having access to a question set with similar question formatting.
After studying with similar questions, the ones currently on SFDC, I walked out of the exam after 9 minutes with a pass.
Even if you don't pass first round, don't give up.
I spent the past 2 weeks going through all of your Admin study materials followed by the past 48 hours of my life sans study breaks, meals, and sleep repeating your Admin quizzes until I knew at least 90% of the 185 questions correctly inside and out. My first attempt through resulted with about a 44% correct rate.
It got to a point this afternoon where I could pick out the correct answers before I knew what the question was. After failing ADM 201 the first time this month, I took ADM 201 again just now and finished in about 15 minutes. I only marked 17 questions for review but since I knew the other 43 were correct thanks to you, I hit submit without bothering to check twice. Result = Pass! Thank you, thank you, thank you. Amazing what a free website with people who care can do for a community of us so passionate about advancing our Salesforce knowledge.
To anyone out there who is hesitant, resistant or struggling, please come here. It will change everything for you. God bless.
