Salesforce Learning Platform: Trailhead
Access to Trailhead: https://trailhead.salesforce.com
Use your developer account or trailhead account to log in. You might have seen a trail mix recommendation on the Salesforce Platform Developer 1 Guide to prepare for the exam.
This is an excellent trailhead path to follow through based on the Platform Developer I Exam requirements as listed below. There will be a total of 60 questions given in the Developer I exam and getting a minimum of 65% score is what you would be focusing on to pass the exam.
While you are going through the trailhead exercises, you will be given an opportunity to test your skills in a salesforce system called Trailhead playground. It is like a sandbox with all the features with a limited number of accounts to use the system to practice what you are going to learn.
In my next post, I will be going through Salesforce Platform Basics and do a quick run-through on the important topics that are required for any Salesforce Developer.
Salesforce used to call its platform Salesforce Classic. Since the introduction of a new and better platform called Salesforce Lightning Experience, most of the Classic customers moved on to the new experience.
