Instructions about the exam
The advanced administrator certificate exam is very relevant to Salesforce as it churns out the best advanced administrators into the market. All you need to do is to adequately prepare for the exam and pass with ease.
As far as the exam is concerned, the candidates will be given a total of sixty questions to answer, and the questions involved are of the multiple-choice type. The total time for answering these sixty questions is ninety minutes, and this means that the candidate has a maximum of only one and a half minutes to answer each question in order to stay within time.
Also, the candidate needs to have a few minutes to go through the answers and see to it that everything is in the right direction. Therefore, one has to increase his or her speed.
The pass mark for the advanced administrator exam is 65%, and candidates are entreated to work relentlessly to at least obtain this mark in order for them to be given this honourable certificate. The cost of registration is $200 plus a retake fee of $100, which is not anything huge as compared to the other exams being offered. Under no circumstance should a candidate refer to any related material in the course of writing the examination as culprits will be dealt with accordingly.
For a candidate to be eligible to participate in the exam, he or she must have achieved the rank of a salesforce certified administrator, so that the person can easily increase his or her ranking to the advanced administrator level. Before appearing for the exam, candidates are advised to partake in the ADM 211, which is referred to as the Advanced Essentials for Experienced administrators.
Since candidates require full preparation ahead of the exam, sample questions have been provided for candidates to practice and get themselves familiar with the question types and to excel this Salesforce training exam. However, the original questions can either be more difficult or simpler than the sample questions, but the bottom line is that you will have confidence to write the exams if you have full control over the sample questions.
