Interested In Joining A Salesforce ADM-201 Study Group In NJ/NYC/CT Area?

UPDATE: The fourth batch is closed.

Following content is from the previous study group posting and applies to the new one as well.


I recently helped a bunch of folks pass the Salesforce Administrator exam and thus decided to launch a study group in the Tri-state area. The first three batches had 18 members and all of them successfully passed their ADM 201 exam which is a great achievement for all of us. I am aiming for the study group and its next batch to comprise all members from the NJ/NYC/CT or surrounding areas where all of us could gather at a convenient location and study together. Before you begin wondering about the cost of joining such a group, let me tell you that there’s no money associated with being a member and it’s free of cost.

Here are the study group details in a nutshell:

  1. Meetup Location
    Secaucus Public Library, New Jersey. I will send you the address via E-mail after you have joined.
  2. Target members
    Anyone who is planning to attempt the ADM 201 exam in the next two to three months is eligible to join. You should be in the Tri-state area and able to commute to the study location once per week for a month. At this time, due to resource constraints and maintaining an optimum group size, I have to limit the group size to a maximum of 6 members so the sooner you contact me, the better are your chances of getting in.
  3. Course Duration and Timings
    The training will last a month and the plan is to do it on a Sunday for two hours for four consecutive weeks. The exact time can be finalized based on everybody’s convenience.
  4. Learning Approach
    The following tried, tested and trusted resources would be our ammo for cracking the exam:
    Trailhead: I couldn’t stress enough on the importance of leveraging Trailhead for the preparation. It is exhaustive, engaging and highly collaborative.

    Salesforce Help & Training :
    This would be ‘THE’ most crucial resource for the preparation.

    My Experience : How about a live demo of ADM 201 relevant features and a 60 MCQ mock test based on what I have learnt in the past few years? You got it.

    During the two hour meetup every Sunday, I go over the listed topics in detail and give a hands-on demonstration of how these features function in Salesforce. I will cover two modules per session and we will be done by the end of four weeks. During the week between our meetups, I will send you links to relevant trails on Trailhead and Salesforce help articles that you must complete prior to our next meetup.  I will also provide you with a 60 multiple choice question mock test  a week before your exam and help you get an idea of what the actual exam will be like.

  5. Prerequisites for joining
    The only reason behind having prerequisites is to ensure that the prospective members are willing to make a serious commitment to show up and indulge in the preparation needed to pass the exam. Here is what I need from you:a.) No solicitation and asking for dumps or real exam questions.
    b.) No option for virtual training and you must be able to meet up in person
    c.) You should have completed the following trail on Trailhead:
    If you need help signing up for a Trailhead account and connecting a developer account with it, feel free to E-mail me and I would be glad to help you out.


So are you interested in joining such a collaborative group where we not only assist our members pass the exam but also learn tips and tricks to help manage Salesforce better? Send me an email at [email protected] or a message via the Contact form on this site and we can get rolling. Once I have found the six members that I’m looking for, I will post an announcement on the site about the enrollment not being open anymore.

    I was a member in the last study group and found it quite helpful. I had spent a fair amount of time using Certified on Demand but failed the first time. I went through the content again but still wasn’t doing so great on the practice tests. Mayank really helped me and others focus on the key issues and not get stressed on details that weren’t as critical. If the sessions are too fast, you can certainly go over the notes provided at your pace. If they go too slow, you should have confidence you are ready for the exam. The people were great, supportive of one another and I now see more familiar faces when I attend user groups. I hoping Mayank does study groups for other exams as well!

  • Paul Fischer

    Great initiative Mayank!

  • Harry Douglas

    I am so sorry I missed out on this when I was back in the area recently. If I do come back for longer I hope something like this will be repeated. I’ve completed all of the Trailhead Administrator modules (Beginner – Advanced) and i’m planning on taking the exam as soon as possible.

    • Mayank

      Harry, I will be starting another study group soon. Let me know if you will be interested in joining.

      • Terry Cruikshank

        Mayank, I am interested in joining your next study group. Do you have one planned?
