Sometimes the stars align in Salesforce certification land. That perfect moment when you’re studying for an exam and prepping for a project related to that exam all at the same time. It happened to me during my first certification of 2019.
If you’ve been following along on my #JourneyToCTA, you know that I spent the majority of 2018 earning both my Application Architect and System Architect certifications. You can read about how I became a Certified System Architect here.
As you’d expect, I was a bit burnt out going into 2019. After such a rigorous study schedule with specific deadlines, I was having a really hard time wrapping my head around how to get started studying for the CTA board. I knew it would be a long ramp up (6 months plus) and the long time frame and enormous amount of content was completely overwhelming me.
Luckily, I realized that I could leverage the Mobile Architecture Designer exam as a nice bridge between the domain certs and my CTA prep. Plus, I would be able to apply my study to my upcoming project in the real world. Win, win.
Now on to the real reason you’re here. How I studied for the exam and my take aways after passing on my first attempt!
