[FONT=&quot]Hello everyone,

Over the last few months, I have been able to knock out 2 Microsoft Technology Associate exams and 4 Microsoft Office Specialist 2016 exams:

MTA:
98-369: Cloud Fundamentals
98-368: Mobility and Device Fundamentals

MOS:
77-731: Outlook 2016: Core Communication, Collaboration and Email Skills
77-727: Excel 2016: Core Data Analysis, Manipulation, and Presentation
77-729: PowerPoint 2016: Core Presentation Design and Delivery Skills
77-725: Word 2016: Core Document Creation, Collaboration and Communication

I wanted to give a huge shout out to Pluralsight because their training was absolutely relevant to the material covered in the exam.[/FONT]

[FONT=&quot]Before taking both MTA exams, I knew that I needed to brush up my knowledge on Microsoft Intune. This was not a product I had much experience with, and this was covered on both exams. After watching Jason Yates’s videos on Managing PCs and Devices with Microsoft Intune, I was able to go in to the test center and conquer both of those exams on the same day.[/FONT]

[FONT=&quot]I went in blind to the test center for the Outlook and Excel exams. However, after barely passing Excel, I wanted to brush up on my skills with PowerPoint and Word.[/FONT]

[FONT=&quot]Heather Ackmann has two awesome courses for PowerPoint 2016 and Word 2016. I enjoy the way how she approaches the training material. She makes it very easy to understand and has a soothing voice. Having an instructor that covers the appropriate material while bringing you in a captivating way causes the listener to want to watch more. Two thumbs up from me.[/FONT]

[FONT=&quot]The MOS exams are exclusively hands-on. You have to complete multiple projects and perform actions within the Microsoft Office application you’re being tested on. I like that approach compared to exams with strictly multiple choice. There is no theory with these hands-on exams, either you know the material, or you don’t.[/FONT]
