This lecture covers Roles and the Role Hierarchy, which governs what individual records a user may see. The roll-up nature of records in the role hierarchy is covered and example scenarios are addressed.
Newer admins often confuse Profiles and Roles. Salesforce realizes this fully, and fashions the security questions on the Administrator Exam accordingly. Their goal is to ascertain that you know the difference between the two, and that you can figure out various security based scenarios.
Permission Sets are often confused by new administrators with Profiles and Roles. After this lecture, you will be able to understand the use cases and functionality differences between Profiles, Roles and Permission Sets.
