Get Puppet Labs Certified – here is a little help on how and what you may want to study.  This is just some suggestions putting the information in one place – it is by no means a cheat sheet to passing the test!  Hope this information is useful to others.

First, take the Fundamentals class if you can.  It will definitely help but I know we cannot all do this because of the cost.  That does not mean you will not pass, it just takes a little more study on your part.

For those of you working with open source puppet – learn about Puppet Enterprise and all its nuances.  Use the PE Virtual VM to play we the Node Classifier (Console) as there are test questions in there about it.
