hi @Learkl ,

 

You get two hours to take the test.

Hi @Learkl ,

 

It depends of your dedication really. If you are able to cover everything in the certification prep guide in one week, that is how long you are going to take.

Give it a try to the exam and then you will feel how much more you need to study to it.

 

Best,

I knew someone that dedicated full-time for 2 weeks and passed. He did not have a SQL background, or a heavy Excel background. It really depends what your background is, and how much time you have available to study. But I would recommend taking it once to benchmark yourself after going through the Core Certification Guide and go from there. Good luck!

Adding to this if it is helpful, I dedicated 3 weeks of time and was able to pass the Alteryx Designer Core on the first try. Although I came from a SQL background, but the experience can still be a lot different on Alteryx, as it was for me. Overall, the Alteryx Prep Kit on community is a must to read before taking the exam and can be comfortably covered within 3 weeks with hands-on practice.

 

Best regards,
