Salesforce Certified Integration Architecture Designer Exam Tips

How to pass Salesforce Certified Integration Architecture Designer Exam

My Experience

This exam sounds difficult. But in my experience this is easy exam. Out of all architect exam, I scored maximum in this exam. If you have worked on 2-3 integration projects and you have good hands-on experience in integration, then 1 week of study is enough for this exam. Like all other architect exam, I went through all links in free self-directed resource guides. Some of topics are repeated, so you can skip those topics. This one was 4th architect exam for me, So I was very confident for this exam. When I submitted exam, I was sure that I will pass this exam.
