    Hello, I am very happy to post that I passed my Salesforce Platform Developer I certification on the first attempt today. I couldn’t have achieved this certification with out Focus on Force study guide an practice tests. Thank you for putting forth such great material for us to achieve our goals. Next, I will be working on earning my Administrator certification with the help of FoF,

      Hi Mousumi, thanks for the inquiry. The topics covered in the study guides and practice exams are concentrated on the objectives in the exam outline. We recommend you taking the practice exams over and over until you obtain the highest score possible. It’s highly recommended though to reference trailhead and other Salesforce documentation when you encounter topics that may still not be very clear to you, or you may post your inquiries here or in the feedback forums. Lastly, it’s best to gain more hands-on experience in the Salesforce platform especially if you don’t work with it on a regular basis.

    Successfully completed my certification at around 4am in the morning (started at 3am). The exam was hard (considering I took it during my sleeping period) but the practice exams prepared me on points to look for in those tricky questions.

    Hi FoF team,

    I’m happy to inform you that I’m PD1 certified after 2 months of continuous preparation. Your study guide and practise tests were very useful. This is the 2nd time that I’m using FOF materials and I really loved it! Thank you so much Martin and team for the materials!!

    Hi Guys,
    are there any Heroku questions on the exam? I have checked the Exam Outline and it’s not mentioned there but in 2019 there were some questions (they didn’t count?).
    My Certification Goal was set for Dec 18 but Dec 16 is my date 🙂
    Thanks for the exam guide! Top quality, as always.

      Hi Mateusz, your are correct, in the past there were exam objectives related to Heroku, but they have been removed. We assume it is because a Heroku Architect Designer certification was introduced.
