Focus on Force

What is “Focus on Force”?

In my opinion, Focus on Force is the best resource for learning when studying for a Salesforce certification.  It’s a robust website that helps you “get the knowledge and confidence to ace your Salesforce certification.”  It doesn’t disappoint.  A brief testimonial:

My Favorite Feature: Explanations on Wrong Answers

The site gives you access to realistic practice exams with detailed explanations of what you answered wrong, so you know exactly where you need to improve.  These explanations include a written description as well as a screenshot example to help you understand where you went wrong.  I’ve made it a habit to take the practice exams and then use the explanations of my wrong answers as a study guide.  This helps improve my scores every time I take an exam until I feel confident enough to take on the real thing.  Here’s an example of how they teach you where you went wrong:

Who is “Focus on Force” for?

There are practice exams, study guides, workshops and training classes for admins, developers, consultants, architects and marketers.  Here’s a snippet from their site showing everything you can take advantage of:

How much does it cost?

The value really is amazing.  You can purchase a study guide or a practice exam for just $19.00.  Once you do, you’ll be able to login to the site and access your account.  This is where the magic really happens.

Stay Organized.  Stay on Track.

Once you’re logged in you’ll be able to keep track of your progress.  I signed up for Platform App Builder practice exams, for example.  Now, once I log in, I can see my practice exam broken into different topics.  I can take practice tests on each topic and get an individual score on each topic.  This lets me know where I am proficient and where I need to study more.  I can see my previous test stores and compare them to the current ones.  It even shows me my average score by topic.

In the example below, you can see that I need to study “Salesforce Fundamentals” and “Business Logic & Process Automation” more, but I am proficient in “Data Modeling & Management”.
