UPDATED STUDY GUIDE
We are excited to release the updated study guide to provide knowledge to assist in your preparation (covering Magento 2.3).
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 $85 on a study guide for a $260 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%.
This test is a 60 question, 90 minute exam. This test can be taken in the quiet, comfort of your home or office—you don't have to go to a testing center! This test is exclusively scenario-based questions: a stage is set, the question is asked based on that information and answers are provided. This type is not found on any other Magento certification and brings a tremendous improvement to the test-taking experience. Magento U's information is found here.

Passed the "Magento 2 Certified Professional Developer" successfully with a 70% score. Don't ask me what percentage was needed to pass; I must have missed that. Phew, that was harder than I expected.— Andreas von Studnitz (@avstudnitz) March 1, 2018
