I need to prepare for the Magento Front End Developer Certification and there didn't seem to be a question on this yet. How should one prepare for this certification? Are there some guides and/or test exams that I can go through? Please note that I am looking specifically for Front End Certification material. There just doesn't seem to be any information regarding this exam or a study guide.
There is a study guide available in PDF form from Magento's website. The test is multiple choice, and takes about 90 minutes to complete.
You can get the study guide here:

Most of the test revolves around XML layouts and theme fallback. Some questions focus on basic CSS principles. Here's the actual breakdown of the distribution of questions:
The test as described by Magento:
A Magento frontend engineer:
Uses the Admin Panel to: implement design-related system configuration modify the appearance of specific pages (for instance, CMS, categories, and products)
