What is a CertifiedOnDemand.com Study Guide?
A CoD study guide is a structured set of objectives, resources (articles, videos, blog posts, etc.), and key facts (takeaways from each objective) designed to prepare you to pass a Salesforce Certification exam.
Watch the video overview:
One of the biggest challenges with learning Salesforce is one of information: there’s simply too much of it. The Salesforce User Guide is 3500+ pages, there are thousands of videos on the Salesforce YouTube channel alone, and hundreds of blogs.
Processing the abundance of information is time-consuming, and it is often difficult to understand what’s truly important to know when preparing for a certification exam.
Another common challenge is identifying knowledge gaps (you don’t know what you don’t know). For example, when I took the Salesforce.com Certified Administrator exam, I didn’t know that account teams existed (much less what they did), and I spent a lot of time preparing for the exam.
CoD study guides greatly mitigate the above challenges, and are designed with several specific goals in mind:
- To dramatically reduce the time required to prepare for a certification exam.
- To dramatically increase the likelihood of passing a certification exam.
- To present real-world challenges in safe learning environment.
- To serve as a reference guide after you’ve passed your certification exam.
The study guide provided by Salesforce.com is very high level. Contrast that with the amount of information available, it’s very difficult to quickly identify what you need to learn and study. Let’s look at an example: the Salesforce.com study guide has 2 objectives for User Setup, while the User Setup & Login Process – Free section on CertifiedOnDemand.com has 18 objectives, exercises, and a practice quiz.
If you are preparing for admin certification, this guide is for you. I’ve gotten feedback from users that have taken Salesforce.com training, used Salesforce.com premiere training, study groups, books, and more. Regardless of your prior training and experience, CertifiedOnDemand.com will help you prepare for certification.

Hi John – thanks for your reply above! Also wanted to report back that I also passed my certified admin exam last week at Dreamforce and absolutely credit your site for helping me get there! With the sheer volume of data out there the structure REALLY helped put my mind at ease and make sure I covered the requirements well. Hoping to add a few more badges in the next couple of years. Just wanted to say THANK YOU!!!! Advanced Admin and perhaps the developer certifications are my next quests 🙂 – See the comment
