How I pass Salesforce Developer Platform 1 Exam

I passed my Salesforce Developer Platform 1 exam on 30 Dec 2016.This  was my second attempt.I am glad at last , I got it over with a happy ending.

I am working in Salesforce since 2011 and I got to know Salesforce with self learning.Salesforce workbook, documentation ,Salesforce StackExchange and mr. Google are really helpful.

I fail at first try due to lack of preparation.Believe me, years of experience is not a ticket to pass.So I was really working hard on the second try.Here are my tips :

#1 Time
I took few months to sit for the second exam after my first attempt.It give me time to study.

#2 The guideline
Please take the Exam Guide seriously.I ticked the topic to indicate how many times I study the topic.I am lucky because I found the reference here , it explained the details on which topic that we should study.

#3 Making note
I made note on the topic that I studied and put it on the wall.Near my desk, near my bed,at door and mirror.Just to make sure I get to use with it everyday.

#4 Mock up Question
Well, I am referring quite a lot on mock up question.I will study the topic that asked by the question.For example if the question asking on Roll Up Summary , I will study the topic on Relationship in Salesforce.Memorize the the answer is not good.But reading the question/answer and  study the pattern is good.Honestly I feel the question is tricky.Sometimes I need to keep reading it to understand.

That's my tips.I will post some of questions that I remember and hopefully it will help your study.

Happy New Year.

Tips and Tricks : Test class for Invocable method

This is not useful when deploying it to Production although it gets deployed together with Process Builder. The correct way is to direct call Invocable method inside test class itself. Example of class : 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32 33 global class MyCustomObject_StatusUpdate_Util { @InvocableMethod ( label = ' Update Quote Status ' ) public static void updateQuote ( Request [] requests ) { Set < Id > setOppId = new Set < Id >(); List < SBQQ__Quote__c > listQuoteToUpdate = new List < SBQQ__Quote__c >(); for ( Request request : requests ) {
