Today I passed the confluence administrator (ACP-200) exam in my first attempt - thought of sharing my experience while it's fresh in my mind , as saying goes sharing is caring , hoping my learnings from preparation and exam can help the Atlassian community friends.
Little background about myself - I’m working as Solutions Architect to manage ALM and CI stacks for an airline company with around an year of experience with confluence more around upgrade automation but less on configuration details.
I must say Atlassian has done a great job in designing the exam , it was a bit challenging with real scenario based questions and expects more hands on.
I had 70 questions to solve in 180 mins.
At the very start I was thinking it's quite enough time but later realized there were few questions really lengthy and time consuming though I was able to go through almost all 70 questions in 2 hr 20 mins with some marked questions for review later (the one's on which I was not much sure) ; these last 40 mins really helped to revisit those one's and corrected some.
So here's the real thing which might help if you are looking to target for the exam.
Do spin up an empty instance of confluence (6.x latest) without any apps installed and try to go through each of the administrative sections like some mentioned below :
I would encourage you to spend more time doing hands on around each of the offered functionalities and visiting each of the tabs to know more in confluence settings screen with descriptions.Most importantly the ones that you rarely use/come across in daily life.
Wishing you Good luck and hope you find it helpful.
Last but not the least - Key to clear the exam is time management and PRACTICE , PRACTICE AND PRACTICE …
