I have been working on Mainframe and VAX/VMS Technologies. Worked on Functional aspects of the applications related to HealthCare, Banking & Finance for 16 years. I am finding it very difficult to shift jobs. I am planning to change my Carrer path onto SalesForce. How hard it would be and what would be to mould myself into an expect on Sales Force Developer. This application being CRM application and i am basically from Core Functional aspects of HealthCare , Banking and Finacial Domains. How hard would be the learning to establish myself as a decent SalesForce Developer. Please help in providing me an idea around these questions.
Hard to say as I don’t have the knowledge of mainframe tech myself- however, I myself transitioned from the Wintel world (desktop, servers, networking, etc.) into Salesforce and my general technical background certainly helped. Ultimately it is a new platform and a new ecosystem- you have to commit to it, keep learning and getting certified 🙂 Great thing is that there are a lot of opportunities and a great community out here to help!
Good luck in your transition! Please keep us posted…
Just wanted to let you know that it is possible to pass the Admin exam on Friday the 13th! 🙂
Probably thanks for your course, of course…
Awesome, congrats!! 🙂
I passed my 201 test today!! Just wanted to thank you for this site – it was very helpful and I learned so much. I would recommend this to anyone planning on taking the 201 certification test.
Hi, I want to upgrade from free to paid… how do I do that?
Use the sign up page: http://certifiedondemand.com/register/certified-administrator-study-guide/
I just wanted to say thank you for providing this website.
I successfully passed the ADM201 yesterday and COD was a huge help!
All the best.
Nice, congrats Dave!
If I subscribe to your website do I get access to App Builder(ADM-401) as well or its just ADM-201 alone.
Please see the FAQ
Just wanted to send a quick thank you for the website. I was floundering around trying to prepare for the exam, and finally decided to sign-up for full access to your site. The way you have the material organized made preparing much easier, and the practice exams were very helpful to get a sense of where I needed to focus my energy. I’m happy to say that, last week, I passed the exam on my first attempt. It is very obvious to me that Certified On Demand was a very big reason for my success. Thanks again for such a great site.
Hey Dan- thanks for the feedback and congrats on your cert!
I can see “login” link even after i logged in which is confusing. Only way to know whether i logged in or not is to go to profile.
How can I edit my username? It is misspelled. 🙂
I can’t edit the username unfortunately 🙁 You could sign up a second time, and then I can delete your original account if you’d like
I just signed up – would I have to pay all over again?
If you sign up for a free account then I can swap the free/paid accounts.
Thank you. I have done that. Please keep the JillRemley user name with the gmail email address (making this my paid account) and remove the JillRemey account (I changed the email address on this account to a yahoo address I don’t use anymore).
Thank you so very much for your help!!
Replied offline- will get this sorted out
Hope you would help me clear some doubts regarding the 401 maintenance release exam.
I got certified in 401(winter’15) and also wrote spring maintenance release.
I was told that we no longer have the 401 exam valid and need to write APP BUILDER in-order to maintain the 401 credentials.
Can you please throw some light on the above, Thanks.
The Developer exam (401) is going away, being replaced by App Builder for non-programmatic types and Platform Developer I for developer types.
You would need to choose one of those two exams to transition away from Dev401- I migrated to App Builder.
I’m seeing free and paid content or not? I want to pay for the full version but I’m not sure what I’m seeing is the full version or not. Or is the trial version after signup includes the full version until a certain date, please advise.
Both free and paid accounts can see the ‘free’ content- if you’re not logged in or using a free account you can’t see much of the content outside of the free sections.
Put it simply
, I want to see the paid content… But I cannot pay…so I’m wondering am in already seeing the paid content when I log in. If not.. I want to pay to see full but I am not able to. Thanks.
If you can access the final practice exam in the getting certified section then you’re on a paid account.
how to Assign the Lead/Case to the different user/Group after 2 days of case creation..?
Use process builder
I have updated the email address in my profile, yet the email notifications are still going to the old email address rather than the new email address? How can I rectify this please?
You’ll need to confirm the new email address – you should get an email notification when you update the user account.
Can a receipt be sent for my payment please?
Studying this guide for ADM201 is enough? If I purchase the study guide, how many licenses will I get?
Please see the FAQ: http://certifiedondemand.com/faq/

Your description so far looks pretty encouraging for a completely ignorant SF aspirant to take up the exam.
I clicked on the “Payments” to allow me purchase the study guide.However, it takes me nowhere. I am still on the same page. How do i purchase the material and is it going to be a pdf that you will be sending across to the email registered?
Do you get the page where you can enter a credit card or select paypal? Once you have sent through the payment, you can access the entire site – parts of it are blocked until then. There is no PDF, everything is online.
Thank you! Can you please send a payment receipt to the email account on file?
I recently upgraded to a paid account, but it still shows my information as the Free site. Could you please assist? I also need a copy of the invoice sent to my email on file. Thank you!
Your account is paid – the sections labelled free will still say free, but you will have access to the entire guide.
Would you please send me a copy of my invoice to my email on file?
Thank you so much!
I would like to see if I can have my invoice emailed to me since I have not received anything after making the payment . Invoice #ch_6sY1EmYQE3Vsox
Email address firstname.lastname@example.org
I entered my card details and clicked on purchase, but nothing happened. I haven’t received any message from by bank also. Should I try again?
Yes I would try again. If the purchase went through it won’t let you buy twice.
I have purchased the course with my credit card and it appears I have access to all the content, but I did not receive a receipt/invoice. Can you please assist?
You should get one automatically – just had it resent, let me know if it doesn’t come through.
I checked my email “In” box and “junk” email folder and have not received a receipt/invoice/confirmation from you and/or the site. Are you sending it to the email address in my profile?
In your profile – I’ll email you offline and see if we can’t sort this out
I have gone trough to your website and found it to be good platform for newbie on Salesforce.com certification path.
I would like to see your reviews on my path of getting ADM201 certification. I have been working on Zoho.com CRM and other Zoho application for almost one year. I have much declarative form of experience on it. Would this experience help me to get salesforce certification.
More, when is the next exam of ADM 201 going to happen.
Would your website have all updated resources available for that season.
Glad to hear the site is helping. Working through updates shortly – you can see the latest status at http://certifiedondemand.com/faq/
please advise where can I edit my profile picture, which is appearing, although I’ve never uploaded any picture…thanks.
Pictures are though wordpress Gravitars – https://en.gravatar.com/site/login/
I have read the last comment and I am not sure if my account works properly. I think I signed up for this site for a free trial first and then I purchased the whole package. How can I check If I am able to access all information?
If you can get to the final practice quiz then you’re all set.
I signed up for the free trial but now I want to purchase the subscription. How do I make that change without creating a new username, password, with a different email address?
Unfortunately your email address is tied to your account. The easiest way to do it would be simply to create a new account. Thanks for asking!
I just want to use this blog to get more experience in saleforce and not to get a certificate….
Does anyone do this also in this way and could tell me if it’s worth to pay for it or are there better Solutions to get only experience in salesforce
best regards John s.
Yes this site will help you get experience – albeit simulated experience. On the job is better, but this is definitely a good alternative.
which section covers Dashboards? The exam has Reports and Dashboard section weighting for 13% hence I am trying to locate the Dashboards.
I have absolutely no experience in Salesforce. Will this guide help me prepare as in a beginner level and prep for the exam?
Yes this guide will definitely help accelerate your learning- I would also recommend in person training and/or premier support if you have access to either. Use everything that you can!
I feel like I have already posted my questions but I am not able to find it. I would like to subscribe here and use this source. I have couple questions to you. Do I need to pay $40 monthly or is that one time fees? Do you have any discounts for nonprofit organizations?
One time, no discount for NPs at this point although something I will consider.
Hello, I want to take my ADM 201 certification in few months and I am already on my way for preparing for it. I want to take a membership of this site but want to confirm that the study material is updated with Spring’15 release and will help me pass my certification in 2015?
This site is updated to Winter 15 currently – you will want to review the Spring 15 release notes before you take the exam.
Does WordPress let you add “be notified on all posts” or “…on my posts”? I keep forgetting to check the little box. I know – duh! – but… (I did remember to check the box for this post, though. LOL)
It is just thread by thread unfortunately
None of the quizzes are showing up?
Yeah thanks for the heads up – fixed now.
I am a Dynamics CRM consultant, interested in getting into Salesforce. I am interested in knowing – from where should I start to learn salesforce. I am interested in getting technical expertise and moving into Business Analyst as I am right now. Like in dynamics , Microsoft had application level training, then technical configuration and customization training, advance coding training so keen on getting your inputs.
This site is not a bad start – I would also recommend training from Salesforce (either in person, or use premiere training if available through your company).
Just wanted to post my thanks for such an informative and easy to use study guide. The affordable price is great as well. Looking forward to using your site for additional certifications in the future! (PS. I passed!)
Awesome, congrats Shayleen and thanks for posting!
My eCheck has cleared via PayPal nearly a week ago, and I still do not have access.
Sorry about that- there seems to be an issue with echecks updating; I’ve updated your account and this site no longer accepts echecks.
Hi John – I’m preparing to take the exam this month and wanted to know if the training is updated for the latest release of Salesforce (Winter 15 I believe)
Yes it has been updated
Hi John – I’ve been reading enjoying the free articles you have on this site and I’m thinking about purchasing the full version. Can you let me know if this site is up-to-date for Summer ’14 exam materials? I’ll be taking the exam in 4 days on 10/29 so I’m looking for (1) more practice questions and (2) articles to solidify my understanding. Thanks so much.
There are links at the end to release training for any releases not included in the content. Thanks, hope you did well!
Can you send my invoice (ch_4sBYLGqIzRsV12) to Noel McCann: email@example.com?
I just purchased and made the payment via paypal. My profile shows as it is still free version I have. Can you please check if the payment I made went through?
Replied privately – you have two accounts; one has the paid login the other does not.
I can’t find my invoice… it gives a number out but no pdf or html based document for audit purposes.
Apologies on the late reply, I think this was resolved via email.
For the last 2 days I ma trying to get Payments window but no luck.
What happens? I’m seeing successful transactions go through – are you using Paypal or credit card?
When click on Payment option I never get next screen.
It looks like you have already purchased the guide – that is likely the cause. Are you having problems accessing content?
can I get access to the study guide , paid for it last evening
If you purchased, you should immediately have access to the entire guide contents immediately. Please fill out the support page if you having problems and I will respond quickly.
What products do you have coming up for SFDC Certification?
Just the basic administrator guide for the moment. I may launch another guide in the future but not any time soon.
won’t take profile image upload; no explanation why it fails. might be helpful to give an explanation of what you want, or guidelines on size & format of image.
