Frequently Asked Questions

This chunky section takes up over a quarter of the entire exam, so you better get familiar with all the concepts! In fact, this section will test your knowledge of Record Types, Formula Fields, Rollup Summary Fields, Validation Rules, Approval Processes, Workflow, Flow & Process Builder.

The exam mostly contains scenario-based questions and therefore given a certain scenario, you will be expected to put forward the most appropriate solution. All of the features mentioned above are so core to the platform, it’s very appropriate that you learn this inside out. In fact, in the exam and on the job, you will most likely be using these features in combination, so have a good play around with them in a sandbox.

This section is all about the Salesforce data model, think standard & custom objects, fields, as well as the relationships between these in the form of lookups & master-detail relationships. When presented with a business requirement, the data schema that is set up is so crucial to the project that it’s good to learn all aspects of data modeling early.

You will need to understand record access implications of the schema, user interface, as well as reporting. In addition, you will need to understand field types in detail, and which one is most appropriate, given a scenario.

You will almost definitely be asked a question based on updating one field to another field type and the data loss that could incur (or not), so memorize and test these combinations out for a guaranteed mark!

As well as diving into the technical point and click aspect of the Salesforce platform, you also should understand the features available to give users a nice experience. With most Salesforce users now on Lightning, this opens up huge possibilities to create slick user interfaces.

You will be expected to understand how Lightning Components can be used, and where they can be placed (Pretty much anywhere now!), as well as the difference between standard, custom, and App components. You will also be tested on how custom buttons, links, and actions can play a part in making user's lives easier.

You will be tested in a similar fashion to the above sections, through scenarios to determine the most appropriate solution.
