I have been actively studying for 501 cert and have gone through all the posts/blogs/videos about how to prepare, including another post here: How to study/prepare for the Salesforce ADVANCED Developer Certification?. But I am still very unsure about myself, as there is no dump about 501 in the website which I can check my readiness like 401.
About me, I don't have very long experience in SFDC development - Only two months. Before that was four months' study on Apex/VF. I have gone through the study guide of apex and Visualforce. I can't remember everything but there shouldn't be any concept about apex/VF which completely have no clue. Within my work, I did every task every carefully and aim at 100% or nearly 100% test coverage for every piece of code as I see them as a way to learn.
I know the recommended experience is at least 8 months but I still want to give it a try. My goal is to register after two months. Please let me know if it is too aggressive.
Here are my questions:
In Jeff Douglas' post, he mentioned: Visualforce - know all of the components, how they are used and their attributes. Definitely I can't remember all of them. I just google them when use. Is it really important to recite all these?
Visualforce Page Templates are mentioned many times. But I can't find relative information except Visualforce email templates. Is that Visualforce page template still available?
- Should I recite the details, like how many @future methods allowed?
Any other suggestions are also highly welcome.
