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.
