I wanted to post a short note to share the experience of passing the Sales Cloud Consultant certification yesterday.
The study guide provides a list of self paced online training material. These sessions helped me to formalize notes which I reviewed a few days ahead of the exam. I also printed the various implementation guides, annotated them and reviewed them ahead of time.
Obviously, nothing beats hands-on experience implementing the Sales Cloud, which also came in handy when preparing for the test.
The exam itself consists of a list of 60 questions, you will have 1 hour 45 minutes to get through it all. Sadly, you don’t actually get to know your score, which is somewhat frustrating (it’s either pass or fail). The upside is that you know the outcome right away.
Congratulations! You have successfully completed the certification exam to become a Salesforce.com Certified Sales Cloud Consultant.
