You are right over the last few releases, some topics have changed and for Summer 17 all of the weightings have changed. Our study guide includes all of the topics listed in the current official study guide and the upcoming practice exams will be aligned with the new weightings.

    Hi Jake,

    Access is for 12 months from purchase date. That should give you plenty of time to study.

    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.

  50. Profile photo of Martin
    Martin 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.

    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.
