As you understood from the title, I passed my Pardot Consultant exam!
It was the 4th of the 5 Salesforce exams I passed on the same day, but I will be covering each one in a different blog post.
If you have used Pardot before, or you have already studied for (or passed) the Pardot Specialist exam, then great, you’re over half-way there!There is a lot of overlap, but now you will be building on your existing knowledge and understanding on how to apply this to external clients as a Consultant.
If you haven’t, don’t worry, you can still pass the exam. My tactic was to
- go through all the material that I could find on the Pardot Knowledge Base site, based on what was required for the Study Guide.
- Go through every video on the Pardot Specialist eLearning site
There is no official Salesforce Pardot course and the Premium Training videos are the same as those I provided the eLearning link for.
I hadn’t come across this whilst I was preparing for this exam, but there is a guide created by Ben Edwards that I would particularly recommend that can really help you get started:
- Pardot Consultant Study Notes
I was able to use a lot of the Marketing principles and CAN-SPAM content the Email and Social Specialist exams, and the Pardot Specialist exam. Use the above content I provided and you too can pass the exam!
