Platform App Builder - 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.

    Hey I am a bit confused with what you mean regarding the objectives naming.
    Eg: exam questions salesforce fundamentals (objectives 1, 2) – app builder
    Where can I find these objectives 1 and 2 ?

    1. Rielle G. Focus Team

      Hi Hendrick, the Objective number corresponds to the sequence of each detailed objective in a section/category from the official exam guide.

      Example: Salesforce Fundamentals (Objectives 1, 2) – App Builder

      This topic exam should have questions from the following detailed objective under Salesforce Fundamentals:

      – Given a scenario, identify the boundaries of declarative customization and the use cases for programmatic customization.
      – Identify common scenarios for extending an org using the AppExchange.

      The reason is that when you go to the official exam guide of App Builder – The detailed objectives mentioned above are the first and second on the list (1, 2). Hope this clarifies it.
