Why is certification so important?

With all the practical knowledge developers get while working for different projects, they need to stand out in their Dynamics 365 career by achieving something more. The next move should be getting Microsoft Certification.

Microsoft certification has become an expected component of a Dynamics 365 developer CV, along with a deeply technical resume. When you think about it, this only makes sense. It is Microsoft’s assertion that:

  • You have invested in achieving professional status in your field
  • Your knowledge base includes the topics Microsoft says it should
  • Your knowledge base is adequate to the workload described by the certification
  • Your knowledge base is current and will continue to be so
  • All this has been verified by study and examination.

Of course, a certification can only verify so much about you; but the lack of a certification today speaks volumes as well.

This certification requires passing two exams:

At Instructor Brandon we are releasing our premiere instructor-led courses to provide training in these skill sets:

Major topics for MB-300 Exam

The exam MB-300 will be testing skills on the four major topic areas mentioned below. In this exam MB-300 study guide, we have included the relative percentage of each major topic area on the exam.

  1. Use common functionality and implementation tools (20-25%)
  2. Configure security, processes, and options (45-50%)
  3. Perform data migration (15-20%)
  4. Validate and support the solution (15-20%)

Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations Core Exam MB-300 Study Guide

1. Use common functionality and implementation tools (20-25%)

This section of the exam has a weight of 20-25% and it covers identifying common Microsoft Dynamics 365 Finance features and functionality and implementing Lifecycle Services (LCS) tools.

Our course MB-300T00 covers these topics in

  • Module 00: Get Started with Dynamics 365 for Finance and Supply Chain
  • Module 01: Get Started with Lifecycle Services for Dynamics 365 for Finance and Supply Chain

Students can gain hands-on experience with and understanding of the functionality and tools of Lifecycle Services for Finance and Supply Chain, Task Recorder, the LCS Issue Search tool and results analysis, and how to use the Regression Suite Automation Tool.

There are three demonstrations covering reusing existing assets and copying and sharing data. Upload, import, copy and save an asset to the Asset Library, and upload a new version for a specific asset. Access a free lab environment to practice using task recording, creating a business process model and a support incident.

2. Configure security, processes, and options (45-50%)

This section has the major weight in the exam – about half of the exam will be based on these subjects. The following modules of MB-300T00 cover these topics:

  • Module 05: Create, Maintain and Use Workflows in Dynamics 365 for Finance and Supply Chain
  • Module 06: Set Up and Configure Legal Entities in Dynamics 365 for Finance and Supply Chain
  • Module 07: Manage users and security in Dynamics 365 for Finance and Supply Chain
  • Module 09: Implement Common Integration Features in Dynamics 365 for Finance and Supply Chain

All these modules have additional content in lessons added to Microsoft’s official course along with demonstrations, labs with real-world scenarios, and quizzes for all the modules. The course has 24/7 access with a mobile learning app so you can make most of your training investment.

3. Perform data migration (15-20%)

Ability to perform data migration is an extremely frequent expectation of developers in real-life implementations. This includes planning a migration strategy and preparing data for migration. For this, our course MB-300T00 has two modules equipped with detailed lessons, demonstrations, lab exercises and quizzes to equip you for this task:

  • Module 10: Prepare Data for Migration and Migrate Data to Dynamics 365 for Finance and Supply Chain
  • Module 11: Use Data Management in Dynamics 365 for Finance and Supply Chain and

In these modules, students will study and work with common migration scenarios and related tools, determine migration scope, identify relevant data entities and elements based on given scenarios, and establish migration strategy processes. You will identify and extract source data, generate field mapping between source and target data structures, support the transition between the existing and migrated systems, and, importantly, perform a test migration and validate the output from the process.

You will perform exercises exploring the Data Management Workspace, and export and import data to Finance and Operations. Module 10 has a demonstration on the BYOD feature and how to configure entity export.

If you are a developer wishing to learn more then it may be wise to check out our Boot Camp, which takes you from zero to hero with some serious hands-on lab action.

4. Validate and support the solution (15-20%)

This is the last section of the exam, with 15-20% weight. However, its weight in the exam does not express the importance of the next two modules in delivering professional-level implementation solutions.

Developers must understand and have hands-on experience implementing and validating solutions within Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) by using LCS. Our course provides two modules with enhanced and detailed lessons and custom demonstrations/labs/quizzes:
