    Hi Jake,

    Access is for 12 months from purchase date. That should give you plenty of time to study.
    We don’t give lifetime access, due to the effort to continually update them and align them with Salesforce releases.

    Sujata

    Hi Martin, Thanks for your response. So, Developer 401 certification is the Platform app builder course right? Then what’s Platform Developer 1..??? I thought Platform Developer 1 is the developer 401. Could you please help me to understand the difference between them. Since I am planning to write developer 401 certification.

  48. Profile photo of Martin Gessner
    Martin Gessner Post author

    Hi Sujata, yes Dev 401 was configuration (which was a confusing name), that’s probably why it was renamed to Platform App Builder. Platform Dev 1 is coding with Apex and Visualforce. You should do App Builder first, so that you understand the configuration options before moving to a development solution.

  49. Profile photo of Martin Gessner
    Martin Gessner Post author

    We usually recommend a combination of Trailhead and the Focus on Force study guides and practice exams. The study guides and exams cover all of the topics in the official study guide, so you will be very well prepared after learning from them. I would suggest to work through as many Trailheads for practical hands on experience and then use the study guide and exams to reinforce and verify your knowledge before taking the exam.

    Your courses/practice exams are great and helped me pass the Service Cloud Consultant exam 🙂
    It would be GREAT if you could add Pardot and Marketing Cloud courses as those skills are definitely in high demand.

    Hello. I am thinking about purchasing the study guides along with the practices tests for Platform Developer I certification. I know that the test had some “maintenance” recently and was wondering if the materials cover everything that I would need to know to pass the test? Thank you in advance!

    Hi Derrick – We analyzed the official study guide after it was updated and found there was one new objective added, related to Heroku.
    We have added that topic to the study guide and practice exams, so our material covers everything in the updated official study guide.

    Hi Martin.. Great material here… I have passed my admin, service and sales cloud consultant exams this last month and the material here was a great help along with trailhead. Looking forward to the pardon material. You mentioned it is on the roadmap after things like community cloud and cpq. Do you have a rough guide as to your roadmap? Or if pardon will be this year? Again thanks for the help and support you provide

    Hi Martin,

    I am looking to move into salesforce domain and have a previous oracle CRM developer background.
    Do you recommend going for developer certifications before the admin one ?
    Also is platform Dev 1 certification a pre-requisite for Dev 2 ?

    Many Thanks

    Hi Adi, I recommend you do Admin first. Admin will give you the basic concepts that you need to understand about the platform. After that I would recommend Platform App Builder before going for Platform Dev 1 as you should understand the declarative options available before developing a programmatic solution. Yes PD1 is a prerequisite for PD2 and it makes sense to take them in that order as they build upon each other.

    Hi Martin, I was able to pass the Salesforce Admin certification exam on the first try, thanks to your comprehensive Admin training practice exams (all six of them) – it exposed me to a lot of the necessary details I needed in order to pass Admin exam. It took a lot of study and practice time and effort and stress but I was able to pass the exam successfully. Thank you again for taking the time to put your Admin training program together.

    Passed the Service cloud examination on 07th Aug in first attempt

    We cannot expect exact question from focus on force exams , generally exam questions are bit easier than this for me . So if you can pass these exams without memorizing and grab the concepts you have high chance to pass in first attempt.

    if you gone through study materials and all of the exams by getting correct concept (without memorizing ) , you will never find best materials than this .

    Additionally do trailheads as well + try to implement things by your own in trailhead environments

    Thanks martin

    Hi Chandra,

    Thanks for the positive feedback. The reason that we have access for 1 year is that we have a team constantly updating the material and offer personal responses to questions in the forum as a service, so that cannot be lifetime access.
