We congratulate Alexander on his brand-new achievement and asked him to share impressions about his experience and impressions with us.
Why did you choose to pass the exam in the first place?
How did you get ready for the certification? Did the preparation take long?
Did you come across any unfamiliar questions during the examination?
There were no unfamiliar questions, because both Magento and our study guides covered all the topics. Although there were moments when I was caught off guard by the questions on the areas I have not worked recently with. Since the exam questions are scenario-based, you need to come up with solutions to the case situations promptly and without hesitation. I even memorized several tricky questions that confused me to study them later. So, as a result, I did not only prove my knowledge, but also learned new things!
On one hand, such questions formulation makes the exam demanding and challenging. On the other hand, this is the closest simulation of the actual project environment I have ever seen among the exams. I passed a Magento 1 certification some years ago and it was very different from the exam I passed this weekend. That is why a person who has little hands-on experience with Magento development will have a hard time passing the certification.
Do you plan to pass another Magento certification in the foreseeable future?
We thank Alexander for his sincere answers and wish that his further achievements would be as prolific as his past ones!
