At Oak street we are Kentico specialists and therefore it's important to us to get our Kentico certificates. When I started at Oak Street I immediately was given some time to learn Kentico with their e-learning courses. Meanwhile 4 months have passed, the courses are behind me, I successfully completed my first project and I can proudly say that since a couple of weeks I have obtained my certificate for Kentico!
Kentico certified Developer
From my experience, here are a couple of tips for obtaining the certificate
A good preparation is key: I studied for about 2 days for the exam, maybe shorter would've worked too, but in the end I think this wasn't exaggerated for my first time.
If well prepared, Kentico's questions are certainly not too difficult. However you need to get used to the way they are formulated. That's why it's certainly not a bad idea to check out the example questions in Kentico's preparation guides as well as the versions of other editions.
In the exam there are multiple questions about staging, the way databases work together. This one of the reasons I certainly recommend checking out Kentico Advantage, a good resource for development choices when building your Kentico project.
To solve the exams questions you really need to be fully focused. This is why I made the exam at home. To finish all 50 questions in 90 minutes you better make sure there is nothing nearby to distract you.
To better gauge my remaining time my colleague recommended me to make a small excel file with the remaining average time per question. This is a good tip to keep your tempo in check. I skipped multiple questions at the start of the test so I could return to them later once I completed all the other exercises.
Make sure you have the experience of a full project on your belt. I personally worked on the adjustment of a career site to the needs of our customer. Without this experience I wouldn't have succeeded.
Before you hit the go button, make sure you have all the resources you'll need at your disposal. I recommend at least a local instance of Kentico, Visual studio with a Kentico solution loaded, SQL Server management studio and Kentico Advantage so you have everything within reach.
