Hi @senthil_basuva_ !  Glad you're in the cohort.

Sorry I missed everyone on last Friday's call.  I was on PTO and at the lake.

The certification exams can be a bit daunting, but with the right experience and preparation you can be well prepared!  Have a great weekend

Hi everyone, 

I'm attaching the 1st module for certification -- Planning & Strategy

Josh_KC_0-1690909045975.jpeg

This module gives a good overview of the key components of Adobe analytics and how they work together. 

Be sure to carefully study any components you aren't already familiar with.  The certification exam is designed to test a wide variety of areas, some of which you may have worked with yet. 

I'd strongly recommend practicing with new tools and concepts in a sandbox, if you have one available.

There are a variety of links that are provided to dig deeper into areas.

As you come across new things and find something of interest, or have questions, be sure to post here in the thread.  Understanding how others use these tools can help them make more sense.

Don't be afraid to ask questions -- you're probably not the only one who has the same question!

 

Warm regards,

Josh

Each week there will be a different module, so best to spend some time several days this week to work through Module 1.  There will be lots to cover in Module 2 as well so it's best to pace yourself well.

Hi everyone,

 

For this exam, there's a heavy emphasis on knowing which tools and which visualizations to use for a variety of scenarios.  

 

The 2nd module covers some of the key tools used within Analytics.  There's also a discussion of some of the key visualization types.  

 

I would recommend being able to identify the keywords that can help you know which tool or visualization type to use.  For example, if a question asks about changes over time, I'd first think of a line graph.  If the scenario wants to show portions of the whole, I'd think of donut charts.

 

This lesson also dives into some tools that can help give your stakeholders more insight such as customizing labels, showing or hiding various elements, and exporting as CSV.

 

Note, there are some mentions of the developer exam and administrator duties.  It appears these are in error, so I'd suggest just disregarding the first half page or so.

 

I'd love to hear how these modules are working for you and what you're finding helps.  If you're willing, post a comment that might help the others in group!

Hi all,

 

Attached is the 4th module.  This module has some more in depth technical details, some of which might be out of scope.  However, it might be good information to study for the exam.  

 

As you study, what concepts are you feeling confident in?  Which ones are you feeling less confident in?  It might be good to get some additional conversation going to help each other prepare.

 

Feel free to ask questions as they arise and have a great weekend!

Hi @senthil_basuva_ , the module 3 seemed to be the same as module 2.  I checked in with the team.

@seanrobinson do you know if there's a different version of module 3 available?  Also, is there a sandbox available?

No, we are unable to provide a sandbox for Analytics. Do you have access to it through work or school?
