Passed MS-900

I’m happy to say that I passed MS-900: Microsoft 365 Fundamentals as part of my employer’s initiative to get everyone through the Microsoft Cloud fundamentals exams.

I got a slightly higher score than I got for AZ-900 which either means nothing (question pools and all that) or that you can take the person out of SharePoint but not the Office 365 out of …

Again it is impressive to see that Fundamentals is a proper exam and even if Azure is a bit more interesting for an old (ex) developer like me, Microsoft 365 components are used by almost everyone on a day to day basis.

It also played to themes that I’ve seen with Microsoft 365 projects in real life – customers have a whole bunch of questions to answer about their IT basics i.e. where do my emails go, where do my files go and can you reset my password for me ?

Passed AZ-900

I’m happy to say that I’ve passed AZ-900 as part of my employer’s initiative to have everyone go through the Azure Fundamentals exam. This is a recognition that cloud is a core part of their business.

My thoughts? I perhaps underestimated the exam and although I passed well I didn’t ace it. I’ve scored more in other “harder” exams so I’d recommend what I try to tell myself – look through the actual product being tested (Azure Portal Features) and if you want to score more you’ll have to remember some of the detail of features and charging structures. I think the classic learning tips of What? How? When? for each exam objective will serve you well.

I’m beginning to realise that all of the exams are treated seriously and a pass (even for fundamentals) actually means something. Respect to my non technical colleagues and a little nudge to myself to treat things seriously!
