The other day I passed the Magento 2 Solutions Specialist exam. I cannot provide details of the exam, but I’ll say there were a number of challenging questions. I found the study guide and practice test from swift otter to be very helpful https://swiftotter.com/technical/magento-2-certified-solution-specialist-practice-test , but there were some incorrect statements that should be fixed. I have emailed Joshua with this request.
“Inventory is associated with a specific website.”
This is incorrect. Invetory Qty is global.
“Flat product pricing can be changed on a store view basis.”
Product price is global by default, but can be changed to “website” (not store) in stores->configuration->catalog->catalog->price .
“What marketing and merchandising features are available only in Magento 2 Enterprise Edition?”
1. Bulk ordering doesn’t exist out of box.
2. Bluefoot CMS is not built in. Module today has been deprecated.
“What does the acronym MOSCOW stand for? How is it used?”
MosCoW is a way determining the importance of requirements for a project, hence the term MoSCoW Prioritisation. MoSCoW stands for Must haves, Should haves, Could haves, Won’t haves. The o’s are added to make the acronym pronounceable and memorable.
