In this guide you will find most answers related to exam topics listed in official guide plus good links to external documentation and other websites.Depending on whether I was familiar with it, I spent more or less time on different areas. On topics I didnt have experience in, I tried to not only to read about them and learn passively, but also code some examples in a blank Magento 2 instance. I wanted to be sure I understood it practically and as we know, doing is the best way to learn.You can also take the free (limited questions) or paid (more questions) Magento 2 frontend test created by Swiftotter. I think its always good to check how are you prepared by answering practice questions and this is a very convenient way of doing it
