Welcome back to my journey to Pipelines Certification blog! In the last post, you learned about my game plan to get certified before the end of the year. Now to tackle one of my biggest fears – test anxiety! Most of my test anxiety can be managed by fully understanding what to expect. To get a better picture of what I’m up against, I reached out to Kiko, Manny, and Matthew on the Customer Success team at Quickbase and recorded a 9-minute interview on their exam experience. They recently became Pipelines Certified and were happy to offer guidance on my path journey towards Pipelines certification. If you have time, I highly recommend watching the video below.
