Sharing my Salesforce Certified Administrator preparation notes


While preparing for my Salesforce Certified Administrator exam, which I passed in april this year, I wrote some notes down to review just before taking the exam.

The majority of the notes came from someone else who took the exam somewhere beginning of 2012, and as I was watching the video’s on Premier Help & Training portal, I edited and corrected them and even added some content to them.

Be careful this is updated with Spring 14 release included, but no further! So keep in mind that some of the limits and functionality could have changed since them in next releases!

But I think it gives you a great basis to start off with, so you don’t have to write everything down again ????

The structure of the preparation notes pdf follows the same structure as the Salesforce Certified Administrator Study guide.

Download them here: Salesforce certified administrator exam (ADM201) preparation notes in pdf

So good luck to all of you passing the exam and leave me a message if the notes helped you at all.

Did you pass using these notes alone? Or have access to other training or dumps?
Notes look good by the way, thanks for sharing.

The notes are actually a summary of the training and resources I've studied for the exam. Altough the notes do contain almost all answers, I can only recommend the study the resources and use those notes as a final review just before going, so that you also understand the bachground for each topic ;-)

You have to know that the adm201 is one of the most difficult exams at Salesforce and is a prerequisite for later exams, because it covers the basics of almost all features Salesforce offers, while next exams are more topic specific focused.

Good websites: (if you go to the end of section 17 on adm 201 section, you'll see another downloadable pdf with a good outline/notes). Also, Mike Wheeler's course on Udemy is great.
