All-new study guide!

Released December 19th: This study guide is brand new, just for the Associate Developer test! It is 187 pages long, with detailed and in-depth information on what you need to know to pass this test. BONUS: I am building a companion video series that will also be included with this guide. You will see, first-hand, how to build a module that is quite comprehensive (including uiComponents). I will let purchasers know when this is complete.

Already purchased the previous guide?

If you have purchased the study guide on or after December 1, we will be emailing you the new study guide. If you’ve purchased the Associate Developer guide prior to December 1st and you want our new Associate Developer guide, we will give you a 50% discount now through January 15th. Purchase it here then contact us with your original order ID and your current order, and we will issue the 50% refund on your latest purchase.


Yes, we will refund the money you paid for the study guide if you fail. However, having participated in writing this exam, just reading this study guide will not assure you of a passing score. You are spending less than $100 on a study guide for a $200 test, so it is important that you thoroughly study and practice. In order for us to provide a refund, you will need to have one of the first two practice test takes within a 4-week rolling window be over 65%.

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.
