The test consists of two parts. The first part is multiple choice. This means that you are expected to select all the answers that are correct based on how they are described in the guide. The second part is a writing test, in which you will be asked to write about how you arrived at certain decisions in the material. I believe these are very poor conditions for these exams and should not be the ones who decide if you get the Microsoft certification for Microsoft Dynamics 365.
So, there are two questions that should have been asked on the MB-320. Those questions are: What did you learn? And, How do you apply what you learned from the test to your company? Instead, there were eight different sections in the test that took over four hours each!
I decided to use an online training program to get the most from the MB-320. I am sure other people who took the test have also tried online courses. In fact, they probably tried a lot more than I did. Why pay for something when you can get the same information for free?
First, you need to realize that the test was designed by Microsoft. There is no way they would include all the questions on the test and leave some out. The test is not a real world simulation. You cannot expect to get a true reflection of what will happen on the day of the test. The best you can do is make educated guesses about what will happen on the day of the test.
Second, the test-prep package included tons of practice questions. Most of them focused on the most common scenarios that you will likely encounter. That is not the purpose of the test. The purpose of the test is to test your knowledge and understanding of the concepts and processes that are presented in Microsoft Dynamics 365.
Third, the test-prep package also included practice questions related to Microsoft Dynamics GP. These questions were designed to simulate the management training material that would be used in the real world. Most supply chain management training uses real case studies to illustrate how a specific management concept or technique will work in the real business. It is important that you are prepared to answer the questions that will be asked to you on the test. Having practice questions is the best way to prepare for this type of exam.
Finally, the test prep course that was provided to me had an entire section devoted to answering questions about the technology that is part of the application. It is vital that you understand how these technologies work and how they are implemented in the actual application. Having a good understanding of the technology is essential for your score. I highly recommend that you take this portion of the test very seriously. The test is only as good as the prepared examinee.
Once I had all of these prerequisites satisfied, I purchased the test and prepared for it. I took the MBS certification tests at the same time that I was taking the actual MBA exam. The timing was perfect because I was taking on MBS certification while doing my actual MBA at the same time. This allowed me to have a few hours of uninterrupted practice before taking the real exam.
When the day for the test arrived, I was extremely nervous. Test anxiety affects nearly every student, but when it comes to taking exams, it can be the scariest thing to deal with. Taking the exam was not easy by any means, but I was ready. I knew exactly what I needed to do and what I needed to look for to make sure that I passed. I spent several hours practicing my interpersonal skills and I felt like I did well.
The supply chain management certification was completed in just under three hours. If I didn’t pass, I was actually thrilled. Being certified in this area is not common and having the credential made it that much sweeter. I have been able to add this key skill to my resume and I feel like it has increased my value.
