M: Why, in your opinion, is a Salesforce certificate important for a B2B Software developer? 

S: I believe it’s more about the process of preparation for taking the exam. Spending your time improving your knowledge and your skills is always a time well spent –  it will always benefit you on a personal level. During my studies, I came across a lot of things that I wasn’t familiar with. I was able to use this new knowledge I gained to solve real project development problems.

On the other hand, having a certification can benefit you on a professional level as well. It indicates you’re hard-working and eager to learn and improve yourself by staying up-to-date with the newest technologies. In this field of expertise, this can be very much appreciated and a great advancement in your career.

M: How did you prepare for this exam? What resources did you use?

S: The main (and pretty much only) resource was the B2B Commerce Documentation. I went through the whole documentation, paying more attention to the topics I considered most important and the topics I wasn’t that familiar with. I find writing things down a really effective studying method, so I’ve also been making my own notes along the way. It served as a nice reminder later on – if I wanted to check something, I would find it in my notes really quickly.

M: How long did it take you to prepare for the exam?

S: It really depends on how much experience someone already has with B2B Commerce Cloud. It took me around a month to prepare for the exam. 

Considering the fact that I spent around ten months working on a B2B project before taking the exam, it was a great head start since I’ve gained invaluable experience during my time on the project.

M: What does the exam look like?

S: The exam is taken online through the Sentinel software. It’s a pretty strict procedure since you are recorded by two cameras during the whole exam. The exam lasts 90 minutes and consists of 50 multiple-choice questions. The results are provided right after you submit your answers.

M: How many mistakes can you make and still pass the exam?

S: You need to have 70% of the test done correctly in order to pass it.

M: What would you advise your colleagues who are planning to take this exam?

S: Start on time. Going through pages and pages of documentation all at once can get overwhelming quickly, so it’s better to do it in smaller pieces. This is not an easy exam and some of the questions can be quite tricky, so take your time to thoroughly go through the preparation material. Write things down, especially if they’re new to you, it will help you create a nice overview of everything you’ve learned so far. Good luck!
