    Hi John,
    I apologize in advance if I’m just not seeing this right…above you have updates to Winter ’16 and SUMMER ’16 but in the change log, it says Spring ’16. The current exam is for Summer ’16 but I don’t see a Change log for it.
    Thanks in advance for clarification!

    Hi John,

    I am new to Salesforce and looking for a certification , I have adequate experience in Software programming , Can you please guide me on the choice of certifications?

    Can you please help me to understand the difference between the Admin Certification and App Builder certification( I was told that Salesforce does not offer the Admin 201 certification anymore ).

    appreciate your help.

      Tushar, it depends on the trail you want to head down. If you are going developer, go Platform Developer and Advanced Platform Developer. The consultant certifications are also helpful as well for bigger contracts/projects.

      ADM201 is the course for admin certification which is what this site covers

      DEV401 is the course preparing for developer certification, which is being phased out and replaced with app builder and platform developer

      I would recommend the admin cert to start, unless you are intending to become a developer- then go for the platform developer cert (not app builder)
