Suggestions & Tips
- Take any of the new Architect Journey exam as more to get the knowledge than the certification credentials!
- In order to pass this exam or any of the new Architect Journey exam, you must have read the Architect resource guide thoroughly and as well as hands on experience.
- If you don't have any practical experience, a Salesforce Developer edition will be the best option where you will have pretty much everything you need to have for this exam.
- Salesforce Trailhead is a great source, containing full of information for each area of the Salesforce platform.
- I learnt one thing in the new Architect Journey exams Don’t judge exam questions by its length! In any of the new Architect Journey exam you will find few questions very easy straightforward but those questions are very less in numbers. You will find majority of questions complex but interesting and every question will have a clue or point to select the correct answer(s).
I hope the content here helps you to get this Certification. Best of luck!
