Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.


it is primarily a opinion base question. if you are good and like to write logic you can go for developer path but if you like drag and drop world you can go for administrator path.

I have also asked for same question and got answer as Admin ADM201 first and then go for Platform App Builder certification. Later go for your specialised area for Admin or Developer based on your taste.

Also it's not good to go with individual certification in one area. You should be have basic certification of Admin & Dev and then advanced certification based on you interest, as Dev and Admin bonded very closely in salesforce daily activities.

Study Guide of Certification will help you to determine which area you are comfortable and which area you need to concentrate more.
