Important test update:
Magento just released a new version of the test that covers Magento 2.3. The only difference we are seeing is questions covering declarative schema. We will be updating the practice test as soon as possible and will remove this note at that time. In the mean time, please be sure to study and understand declarative schema.
Magento 2 Certified Associate Developer test is available!
And we have an awesome study guide to help you pass.
We are excited that our own Joseph Maxwell participated in the development of this test (and has successfully passed it too). The test will be 90 minutes with 61 questions. It is designed for a PHP developer that is new to Magento 2, but has completed the Magento U Fundamentals course. It continues the new trend of scenario-based questions testing your knowledge of Magento instead of your capacity for memorization.
Points worth noting:
- Can be taken at a testing center or at home. Note that you must have a decent internet connection with at least 1MB up and down.
- Expects you to have taken the Magento U Development Fundamentals course (or equivalent knowledge), plus some additional study.
- Is easier than the Professional Developer exam. In US labor industry terms, the Associate developer exam is to an apprentice as the Professional developer exam is to a master.
- Magento is still building the study guide for this test. However, you can see basic information for the test here.
Download the FREE study guide:
It has 177 pages full of helpful and informative content. The goal of the study guide is to fill in knowledge voids. This not only makes you a better developer, but will help you pass the test. Please note that this is the same study guide as is used for the Professional developer exam. The knowledge covered is similar, but the Associate test isn't to the same depth.
