I actually did worse on FOF practice exams than the actual by a significant difference so I think they prepped me well. Started with the more heavily weighted topics on Trailhead then moved to FOF guides and exams the final 2 weeks before the exam. I also wasn’t prepared for 65 questions on the real exam (they throw out 5 random questions when scoring) because all the practice only had 60, so expect that. Try to identify the exam topics that consistently give you trouble (e.g., config and setup, lightning app builder, etc,) and read the detailed exam answer explanations and even test then by working through them in Trailhead to cement them in your memory.

No easy way but to spend time on admin trail offered by SF, then take practice tests from multiple vendors .

Could use some perspective from folks here! I joined as in-house counsel from V20 recently. When I interviewed for the position, the hiring manager explained the team structure and broadly gave me a career path in the company. The day I joined I learned of a long term secondee who’s around my same level that they’re planning on bringing in with the exact same job description as me. I feel extremely frustrated and had I known this before joining, I might have made a different decision. Contd.
