Getting Started with Analytics Part 4 (you are here)
You can start attempting the Advanced exam immediately after you pass the Core exam. Just to illustrate how big a gap exists between the 2 levels, here is my personal experience.
I passed the Core level on the first attempt, scoring ~88%. Shortly after I attempted the Advanced exam, with little additional preparation, to check how far off I was. And yeah, very far off. I remember that I got less than half of the multiple-choice questions (40 in total) right and did not even manage to finish any of the four application questions.
I only passed the Advanced exam on the 5th try (or thereabouts), scoring 82.5%.
You can see that I have a less-than-stellar exam performance (^-^) and my learning path is likely imperfect. Any tips I share are meant for self-studying professionals like myself who do not mind piecemeal improvement and whose objective is NOT just about getting certified but about self-improvement and self-help, a little bit at a time.
What follows is a review of available self-help resources. I tried to list them in the sequence which I think is the most optimal.
These are the most helpful resources which I highly recommend to anyone who wants to attempt the Advanced level and tries to get started with the surest footing!
I found these useful for myself, but if you do not have time, I would prioritize the “must-watch” first!
