A good beginning of a New Year!
Here I have shared some quick steps for those who like to appear for these exams.
How to register?
2. Follow the registration steps and choose your convinient date/time available there. If you have promo code or any voucher code, you can enter while registering for the exam so the exam fees will be 0! Microsoft site declares promotion codes sometimes for some of the exams/courses. You can refer MVA site – https://www.microsoftvirtualacademy.com/ for this.
3. MVA site is for MS members who like to appear for the couses/exams available there. You can register for its membership free of cost! It also describes details about the modules/course of the particular exam. You will be given exam code also.
4. Once registered, you will receive an email from the prometric site with details entered while registering.
How to prepare?
Generally preparation depends upon the exam selected. If you are registered with MVA site, you can see videos of the courses available there. These module wise videos are the introductory part which cover all the topics related to particular exams.
Apart from this, you can read dums! Dums are something like previous exam papers of the MS exams appeared. Users post latest dums online. One of the site to refer dums is http://examcollection.com. It gives a list of the dums posted by date. Its a really good practice to follow these dums to at least score passing marks for MS exams. Passing score is 700 out of 1000. Time duration and number of questions vary depending upon the exam.
How to get Certificate?
After completion of the exam, if you are passed, you will be given marksheet/report from the prometric center and you will recieve the mail from MS.
Approx in 7 working days, you will recieve the mail and it will have your MC ID and access code which you need to enter on the MCP site – mcp.microsoft.com
You will get digital copy (PDF format) of your certificate as well transcript etc from there.
All the best!!
