Are there any study guides for this exam? I saw a 20 page overview but I would much prefer a book to sit down with. I have seen a few Magento 2 book but I want something that is for the exam.
At the end of this page https://u.magento.com/certified-magento2-solution-specialist#.WgIk5N9fjCI you'll find the link to the free study guide.
That is the 20 page overview I mentioned. I was hoping for about a 300-400 page book to read.
If you use that guide to explore topics you should be OK.
If you like to get some practice/idea about his the exam maybe you can follow this thread: https://community.magento.com/t5/Training-Certification/Magento-2-Certified-Solution-Specialist-stud...
(to be clear, that isn't the real exam and that's not a shortcut for the certification)
