Platform App Builder - Certification Goal

Note

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.

    Just passed on first try thanks to FoF. Just wanted to say that this is the best (and most detailed) content I have found for SF. Really great videos, slides, and test bank questions with reference links! Super helpful. I recommend both the videos and the study questions. Good luck everyone!

    I cleared my Platform App builder exam on the first try with the help of FOF. I loved all the videos in the study guide, especially the ones by Guillaume Weill. Other than a few trailheads I was able to clear the exam by focusing on the FOF study guides and mock exams. Thank you FOF!

    I passed the App Builder exam after several attempts. Focusing on the reference links for incorrect responses and SLOWLY reading the exam questions was the key for me. THanks FOF!

    Just passed my Platform App Builder exam today in the second attempt. First attempt questions were quite a bit harder. Also it proved doing just all the (topic) exams was not enough. This time I focused on the training materials, mainly the Videos, which were a great help!

    This might be a dumb question, but…. my study plan says to start with Business Logic and Process Automation, but the course seems to start with Salesforce fundamentals. Should I start like the fundamentals? That seems more likely to me….

    1. Starkey Focus Team

      Hi Charles. There will be several ways on how you might want to tackle your study preparations. One way is to start from top to bottom of the Sections and Objectives as they appear on the official Exam Outline (see: https://trailhead.salesforce.com/en/help?article=Salesforce-Certified-Platform-App-Builder-Exam-Guide#outline), Salesforce Fundamentals>Data Modeling and Management>Business Logic and Process Automation>User Interface>App Deployment. Another way that works for others is starting from the highest percentage weight (in this case, Business Logic and Process Automation) going down to the lowest. All depends on you and your own learning style.
