Hi Srini! I'm aware of some of your concerns, but ultimately the decision to amend any of the training materials rests with the Academy team. Please know they are very responsive to feedback and take seriously the validity and integrity of their courses. Level 3 in particular is designed to simulate a real Anaplan implementation and force Learners to think creatively. This Forum post may provide some tips or insights for you; I will reiterate that it may be helpful and/or encouraging to you to hear from your fellow Learners (past or current) on their experiences with this course and their perspectives on overcoming certain obstacles—the Forums are your friend! 😁
We wish you the best on completion, but fully understand if setting it aside temporarily is the right move for you at this time.
I just managed to pass my L3 exams today. I know the technical exam is challenging but if you keep calm and do it, getting 100% is possible.
Since we are forbidden to discuss any answers, I won't go in detail. My suggestion is ensure that in your L3 course work, all the 'Check your build' sections match number by number (yes, they do all match). If you get them correct, then you know you are set for the exam. I made a habit of checking some of the previous steps during later stages of the course to ensure nothing changed.
During the exam, I spent more than an hour loading data, verifying it is all expected. I had to click Next/Back buttons so that it would not time me out. I then failed in first attempt which surprised me as I knew all my formulas were expected. Only then I realised I forgot one step. I did that and then in my next attempt I got 100%. So it is possible but patience is key and yes, load and verify your numbers.
I have close to 20 years of experience in EPM space alone and I was curious to know Anaplan capabilities to offer to my clients. The hands-on through the course till L3 and earning Certified Model Builder Badge has given enough exposure on Anaplan and on what I need to pitch with the clients.
Pursuing and spending time to earn further certifications, as I think now, would not help me.
