For the Salesforce Certified Platform Developer 1 exam, these two points are mentioned as part of the study guide but I am not sure at what level of technical understanding you need on these two topics specifically for the intent of passing this exam.
Describe the benefits of the Lightning Component framework
Describe the resources that can be contained in a Lightning Component
Do you need to be very thorough with aura framework like how one should be with VF framework or the questions test only your basic understanding of this lightning comp framework ?
Has anyone who has completed/attended this exam in the recent times, throw some light on this ?
