Recently Magento announced Certified Professional Developer exam for Magento2.

After reading in this page https://u.Magento.com/magento-2-certified-professional-developer

I have some questions about the exam.

  • What is the passing score for this exam?
  • Which study materials useful for preparation of this exam?
  • Except from the Free study Guide, are there any other study materials available for this exam?
  • Are there any passing criterias for the Commerce (Enterprise) edition just like we have in the Magento 1 Developer Plus Exam?
  • What is the retake policy for this exam?
  • How many free retakes are available?
  • 2
  • I think there are some clear questions in your list which could be answered objectively. However you are also asking for study materials which will result in loads of people posting links to all the blogs of devs and agencies out there. Maybe you could reword this? Or be more specific about what kind of/quality of materials you are looking for? – 7ochem Jul 6 '18 at 8:00

    @MurtuzaZabuawala Everytime you register for an exam you have to pay for it. Means for every retake you have to pay. I guess once a year Magento offers that you can retake (only once) for FREE. However, not sure when they are going to offer it or not. – Taran Mar 6 '18 at 16:04
  • @Taran that 1+1 offer not come for last two years , but yes you get discount codes if you fail in first attempt – Murtuza Zabuawala Mar 7 '18 at 5:59

    @MurtuzaZabuawala I am also an Indian :-). If you see/find ROI in certification than it will not be a big amount. I am not sure if you are working somewhere else ask your company to sponsor. – Taran Mar 7 '18 at 18:35
