I have finally got round to taking this exam, I have only just (well it feels like) passed MB-200 and so when this exam was announced, I was a bit “meh” about it.
Thankfully, the amazing Julian Sharp asked for people to review his new book Microsoft Power Platform Functional Consultant: PL-200 Exam Guide and I jumped at the opportunity.
It is a wide-ranging exam, from canvas app button functionality to recommended data repositories and AI builder techniques and everything in-between. I found my selection of questions focused on Business Process Flows quite a lot as well as Power Virtual agents.
Basically, ensure you read the exam outline and know the fundamentals of each area.
Julian has done a wonderful job bringing all the aspects of the exam in one readable volume. His understanding of the intricacies of the Power Platform shines through strong with every page.
This is not a mere “learn these facts to win” book, the reader is given a deep understanding of the platform. Starting with ensuring his readers get practical, hands-on experience by signing up a for a trail, he then guides them through what to expect from the exam. He also highlights some of the history, tools and initiatives in and around the platform to ensure the reader has a rounded understanding.
Each area of the exam outline is then documented to a great extent, with screenshots and steps to complete the task at hand. Each chapter has a series of questions to test your knowledge. As a seasoned Power Platform professional, some of these were tricky and ensured I had the knowledge required to pass.
Overall, a great book, which I highly encourage people to purchase if they are working towards this qualification.
