Study Tips for Salesforce Advanced Admin Exam

Here is the complete study guide for your reference how should you prepare for the exam. The study guide is prepared by discussing certified Salesforce advanced admins who have passed the exam successfully.

Study Tips for Salesforce Advanced Admin Exam

1). Check Topics and their importance:

Topics with a high weightage should be prepared first then you can start to study others with less than 10 percent of weightage. Even if you prepare topics with high weightage well and answer all questions correctly, you can easily score 65 percent in your exam. For the weightage, we have already given the chart earlier. It is not necessary that every time you will get the same set of questions but it may vary year to year. Still, there are chances’ that you will get questions in the same way as discussed.

For each topic, there are certain bullet points that you need to cover while studying for the certification exam. The understanding of the breakdown of the exam and its structure is taken as the wise step and best practice recommendations. Make sure that you understand the intention of each bullet point clearly. If you are not sure of a particular topic then study about it and spent more time on that particular category.

2). Practice Quiz:

Self-assessment is mandatory before you attempt the final exam. There are a lot of quizzes given online, you can practice them and get an exact idea of questions. You can study the previous year’s papers too. Sometimes, questions are repeated from previous year exams.

For your understanding, we have given one quiz as well where you will get an exact idea of questions that are asked during the exam. We have given 23 sets of questions in the previous section. You just practice them and try to solve them one by one. If you can score 65 then there are chances that you will get the same score in your final exam too.

Also, you will get to know where you should improve and which topics need to focus more than others.

3). Hit the Trails now

When you are sure of weak areas and need to work over it one by one. So, the question is how to improve your base knowledge to hit the exam. According to experts, you should prefer taking instructor-led training online and learn everything step-by-step. The exam does not check your theoretical knowledge but how much are you stronger as an experienced administrator. for this exam, you should focus on practical study more.

4). Learn through Trailhead

Trailhead is a knowledge hub where you will get each and everything about Salesforce for free. If you are a self-learner and sure of your skills then you can study through trailhead as well. It is a free source where expert Salesforce professionals share their knowledge and experience. It is also one of the best study guides for Salesforce available so far.

5). Google is your friend

Next to Trailhead, you can rely on Google as well where you will answer all your queries and practice quizzes as well. Google has everything but you have to spend time to filter the right things and learning materials for the exam. It is again a good option for self-learners. the best part is that you will get the most recent content as Salesforce keeps changing its platform features and capabilities.

Google is your friend

For example, if you search Collaborative Forecasting in Salesforce then it will give you the most recent articles, blogs, YouTube videos then can be highly beneficial for you. Similarly, you can search for other topics too or you can join the community online where you can connect with other Salesforce experts and grow your skills eventually.

6). Create a Personal Developer Account and practice things online

Once you have gone through all the concepts, the best way to retain information is to practice things online. For this purpose, you should create a developer account online where you can set up and configure Salesforce. also, you can explore more about Salesforce apps and learn to play with complex Salesforce features. You can practice concepts through Trailhead challenges too.

7). Go through Mock Exam questions

I was very much sure of my skills and I was thinking that I know everything and ready for the exam. The best idea is to check your knowledge through mock exam questions. Also, you will get a better sense of questions and how can you potentially do on the exam. You will also get some flashcards on quiz sites and increase your chances of being correct all the time. there are a few mock questions that are available for free and there are a few where you have to pay a certain amount.

8). Study Routinely

Study daily and make it a habit until you don’t appear for the exam. If you consistently score 80 percent then your chances of getting 65 percent can increase immensely. Also, it will build up your confidence in taking the exam.

9). It is the Exam Day, a moment of the truth!

Here are the tips for how did I prepare for the Salesforce Advanced Administrator exam.

  • Readout each question slowly and take your time. Look out for the keywords carefully.
  • Take notes on scrap paper and make calculations wisely. Focus on your exam completely and find solutions attentively.
  • Go through each of the answers at least twice. Sometimes, we do answer wrong accidentally.
  • If you think that you have to spend so much time on one question then mark it for Review and jump to the next question.
  • For each question that you are not sure of 100 percent, mark it for review later.
  • Make sure that you will complete all questions in time because you have only 90 minutes to work on 60 questions.

Final Words:

At certain points, you have to conclude what all you have done and what can you skip. It is not possible to answer all 65 questions correctly. But prepare at least 40 questions in the list that are correct to secure the passing marks. Think twice before you submit the exam or keep review until 90 minutes.

I wish you the best of luck on your exam! Feel free to comment and add resources that helped you out!
