How I passed Nintex Workflow Admin Certificate

Hi all,

Finally, I passed my Nintex Workflow Admin Certificate and scored 251 on 04 Feb 2017. I started learning Nintex products last Nov 2016 and started preparing for last week of Dec 2016. I tried my first attempt and was unsuccessful with score of 138 out of 300 in Jan 2017. The passing score is 180.

I asked a lot of questions from Nintex community about how to pass this exam. Erick Weitkamp (from Nintex) suggested to take the full exam, sense the kind of questions and then retake it again. I followed his instructions. I am working on SharePoint online and number of questions are not exactly the exam is looking for. However, after studying for exam I am able understand the basic concepts such as LazyApproval, Installation of Nintex forms and workflow, NW Admin tool concepts, backup and restore etc.

If you do not have Nintex subscription, then you can download a free app on SharePoint online  and create a free Nintex Account and practice with exam.

Some Nintex Admin Certificate takeaways:

·         Exam is for 60 minutes and 30 questions are asked.
·         Most of topics are covered in exam syllabus. 4-5 questions are not covered though. You can perform a google search to find out answers. But take note of time. In my first attempt I was short of time.
·         Understand the LazyApproval, NW Admin tool, Installation of Nintex products, Performance guide, and Database design thoroughly.   
·         I made my own notes and checked all the questions that I could not answer in my first attempt. It really worked.
·         At this point of time, there are no videos dedicated for preparing for Nintex Workflow Admin certification. May be Nintex team can provide them in future. 

Now, time to study for Nintex Workflow Pro certificate.
