    1. Hello,
      I want to learn AEM through online sessions. Would you please provide me the details.

  2. I really appreciate the the author for creating such a wonderful blog. I am a beginner to AEM and can grab the information easily from this website. I would definitely recommend the people to go with this blog if they are interested in learning AEM.
    I request author to upload video tutorials on basics of AEM. Thank you.

  3. I have taken this exam once. I used all those "brain dumps" you find on the web. Most of the time they are pretty close to the exam. Not this exam. I have implemented 5 different sites with AEM and still failed this. The exam is very particular and has many questions that are pick 2 or pick 3, and that sucks. I am not a long time java develeper, I am really a C# guy. I have certifications in Microsoft, Sitecore and others, but this is pretty difficult if you don't know what to study for and the questions are tricky. Also I have only worked on 6.2 and up and done most of my stuff in Sightly (HTL), so that also sucks because there really isn't much on that note. I have to take again this week and I hope reading through all of this helps. Thanks for the post.
