Is there any recent updates to the pdf file for admin certification
Not yet Vidhya, it will be updated towards the end of this year. But usually, about 90-95% of the content remains the same.
timelines are really helpful to plan on how many hours to allocate for studying.
Outstanding Job! great resource for the beginner who is has to sift through tons of info. Thank you!

Finally, a resource that lays out exactly what courses to take and in what order (identifying weighted test questions is also awesome). I haven’t even begun learning and I already feel more empowered than I have the past week of searching countless Salesforce courses. THANK YOU!
