Who, in your opinion, needs to pass this exam?
Well, Magento provides a free study pdf guide for this exam, but it contains only questions and no answers. At the moment, there is no comprehensive tutorial for this exam, so I and a colleague of mine decided to write one ourselves! It was hard, obviously, harder than simply studying the pre-made material, but at the same time, I realized that I retained the information much better.
How long did it take you to get ready for the exam?
I began studying in January, so it was 5 months in my case.
What questions from your certification exam did you remember the most? Were there any unexpected questions?
No, there were no surprises – all the 60 questions were mentioned in the Magento study guide.
The questions that I remembered the most…. perhaps, about the mixins and their use for customization, and UI components creation and customization. That was useful knowledge that I expect to apply soon to future projects.
