I am trying to complete the course of App Builder.
I can see from Salesforce fundamental of topic exams that it separates by 7 objectives. May I know which objective is referring to which topics in the course? It looks to me that there are totally 11 topics of Salesforce fundamental in the course. Thanks for the answer in advance.

For example, Salesforce Fundamentals (Objectives 1, 2) have questions from the first 2 objectives.
