I have been conducting probono study groups in New Jersey for over 6 months and all 25 members from my study groups so far have passed their ADM 201 exam in the first attempt. The 100% success rate and working with such a diverse group of amazing people has motivated me to organize another round of study groups; this time for the ADM 211 (Advanced Administrator) exam. Choosing ADM-211 over other certification exams was a result of the poll that I posted on the success community a while ago:
There are a few prerequisites for joining the study group and I would appreciate it if you E-mail me only if you meet them. 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:
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 trails on Trailhead:
Similar to the previous study groups’ structure, here are the details:
- Meetup Location
Secaucus Public Library, New Jersey. I will send you the address via E-mail after you have joined.
- Target members
Anyone who is planning to attempt the ADM-211 exam in the next two to three months is eligible to join. You should be in the Tri-state area and be able to commute to the library every Sunday for four consecutive weeks in 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.
- 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 sessions will begin this Sunday, September 11th. The exact time can be finalized based on everybody’s convenience though 2 PM – 4 PM has worked well in the past.
- 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-211 relevant features and a 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 one module 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 practice test a week before your exam and help you get an idea of what the actual exam will be like.

So are you interested in joining a collaborative group where we not only aim to crack ADM-211 but also strive to get better at administering Salesforce? Send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
