Administrator - Certification Goal


Please be informed that Focus On Force has recently updated this Certification Course to reflect a more modern, stylish and accessible UI.

As you may have observed, we have cleaned up the Main Lesson Page to only show the Main Objectives, Mindmap (also available in Topic pages), and Feedback -- allowing you to have a more clutter-free workspace. We have created separate Topic Pages for each detailed objective which you can access at the left hand side of the page. Upon clicking, you will be presented with the Detailed Objectives under the Section that you have chosen. Additionally, we have put "Topic Progress" indicators which could guide you better on your progress.

For mobile users:
On the Main Course Page, you will see the Lesson Table wherein Percentages and Sections are listed. On the upper right hand side of the table, you will see options to "Expand All" and "Collapse All". If you click on "Expand All", it will give you the option to pick which objective you would like to access.

    I already scheduled my exam on 16th April 2023 and I have Salesforce Admin experience as well however, when I see Salesforce Admin Exam questions, I easily get confused.
    I bought study material & practice test for Admin exam today.
    Is there anything else that I should also do?

    1. Rielle G. Focus Team

      Hi Mohit! Thank you for purchasing our study materials and practice tests for the Salesforce Admin Exam! It’s great to hear that you have relevant experience in Salesforce Admin, and we hope that our materials will be of great help in your preparation.

      In addition to the study guide and practice tests, we recommend practicing your skills in a dev or training org. This will allow you to apply the concepts you’ve learned and gain hands-on experience. Trailhead is also a great resource for gaining practical experience and reinforcing your knowledge.

      Our study materials are designed to provide in-depth information on the topics covered in the exam. Each study guide is broken down into sections and objectives, with visual graphics to aid in your understanding. We are also continuously adding tutorial videos to each section to enhance your learning experience.

      We wish you the best of luck on your exam on April 16th and are confident that your hard work and preparation will pay off. Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any further questions or concerns.

      Hi Pallavi, thanks for contacting us. We would always recommend taking more time before trying the Admin exams, because it covers so much. If that’s possible for you, we would recommend at least 3 months of preparation that includes our materials, Trailhead, and practicing in dev org or Trailhead playground.
