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.

Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.
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:

The test as described by Magento:

Despite the official study guide mentioned by @philwinkle, I would like to add two more resources which can be quite helpful in order to prepare for the Magento Frontend Developer Certification:
