Where can I find study materials for the Core Spring certification?

The Suudy Guides for both versions are on Pivotal's Certification site.

Spring 4:

  • Around September 2014, Pivotal updated the Core Spring course material and exam. Same major topics, however the emphasis is to use java configuration. Pivotal Academy


  • Spring 3:

  • In July 2010, Spring Source put out a 3.X study guide
  • Jeanne Boyarsky posted her study notes along with a lot of exam commentary
  • See Jeanne's list of resources with comments for each one.
  • Gavin Lasnitzki certification resources for Spring 3.0


  • The Spring 2.5 exam is no longer offered
    Spring 2.5:

  • Spring Source's 2.5 study guide
  • Spring Source's 'sample questions' (they aren't multiple choice like on the exam)


  • Where can I find mock exams for the Core Spring certification?

    Where can I find sample questions for the Core Spring certification?


  • Per Dan's thread, JavaBlackBelt has some questions (as of last check, they were old questions for Spring 2). Skill guru has samples of 50 questions for $.99 that cover Spring 3.
  • BlackBeltFactory also has a sample exam that is harder than the real exam.


  • Where are some experiences from someone who has taken the exam?
    Dan Fernandez explains in great detail his preparation process for 2.5 test as a grandfathered candidate (without having taken the course.)

    How much is the cost for the exam?
    In May 2017, Pivotal no longer requires taking a class to take the certification. The exam costs $200.
