I am Aniesh from Bangalore. I’m very new to Salesforce and began exploring the platform about 3 months ago. Started my journey with #trailhead a few weeks ago. I came across Mayank via Twitter. He was 5x certified then, little did I know that this man will agree to be my mentor and help me out in this #journeyofsalesforce. I wrote him a detailed email with my educational background, work experience and why I was considering #Salesforce for my career in Cloud Computing. Glad that he replied in detail #Congratulating me on my decision to choose the platform and tips on how to get started addressing questions on learning, finding a job etc. 2 weeks later- I find myself stuck in the UI Customization module of the Admin trail. I sat for more than 2 hrs to complete the 1st challenge in the UI series but I couldn’t move further due to a simple mistake. Approached Mayank via twitter, wrote him a detailed email with 3 screenshots of my issue and expected a reply in a few hours cursing myself for writing such a big email. Quick, came the reply via twitter itself. Was surprised but all that I had to do was make a minor change and that not only helped me complete my challenge but also gave me the desired output of seeing any contact name in my contact list on Google via the ‘Google Info’ custom button. Thanks a lot Mayank for helping me when I hit the #deadend. You continue to #Inspire me learn more and make a Career @Salesforce.
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!
Mayank Srivastava is very proactive, dedicated,enthusiastic,
I just took the ADM 201 exam tonight. Well I just completed the exam 5 minutes ago and I could not believe my eyes when I saw the results. I sat there staring at the screen for about 3 minutes in disbelief. It said that I passed! I couldn’t believe it! I owe it all to you!! THANK YOU!! I can’t tell you how much appreciate this! You are awesome!!
Mayank is really passionate about Salesforce and that comes across in his training. He gave us a thorough training on the software, enabling us to use it on our own. After 5 years of donor data in scattered excels, we now finally have it all organised in Salesforce. As we continuously use Salesforce, we’ve realised the need for additional data and features and Mayank has been quick to respond and been able to help us make those additional changes too.
Thank you and congratulations to everyone as well. The strategy that was shown during the last session really helped me stayed organize and allocate the remaining time I had to review those questions that marked as “Maybes” and “Did not Know” (which were very few). I definitely advise you to spend all of the time studying on the session slides and questions and walk into the exam very confident.
Mayank – Once again, thank you for your time and your effort in providing us a guideline and the right tools to attain this certification.
I started with self study on the Administrator part and with so much of content to study I had a lot of queries, very silly ones even. That is when Mayank helped me out through the Salesforce community. Almost every time I posted a question on the community, Mayank was always around with the answer and clarification. Mayank’s answers to my queries have always been spot and helped me understand the concepts better. Very often he embeds a Salesforce official help link in his answers to ensure that we just don’t move away after getting our answer but also understand the concepts/ scenarios around that topic. Thanks a lot to Mayank for being around for thousands of Salesforce aspirants like me.
Today I cleared ADM-201 and want to say thanks to you. I would say the guiding motto in the life of every natural philosopher should be, Seek simplicity and Mayank has been a huge help and great guide to me. I started my journey from your success story, and followed all instruction to complete the exam. You have answered my each query or all questions in which I was confused. Writing this review is just a token of appreciation for Mayank sharing his knowledge with budding salesforce admins and helping them succeed. He is prompt, well informed and very cooperative. Really inspired and would follow you, in future as well. 🙂
