Flex 4 ACE Questions

Passed ACE Certification with Flex4.

The differences of Flex3 and Flex 4 certifications
1/ more questions – 59 questions (previously 50)
2/ more time – 90 minutes (previously 60 min) Don’t bother about time factor you will have at least 30 minutes spare time for review.
3/ UI have more share among questions 35 %
4/ In Flex_Exam_Guide – They didn’t mentioned about LCDS, but we got Questions from LCDS too.

Tips:
1/ Do use attest, as it is the only resource we have for mockup
2/ Unlike Attest the questions will be in shuffled order
3/ While you attend ACE, don’t forget to use “Flag for review”, whenever you have doubt on your answer.
4/ The Questionnaire will be different for everyone
