Has any taken that Md100  or the md 101?  Anyone have any tips?

    I have not touched the MD-100 but passed the MD-101. I used aka.ms/MSStudyGuide which is the exam blueprint with links to all the relevant technet articles. The cbt nuggets course is ok but a bit lacking in my opinion.

    No, not studying for anything desktop related as I want to move away from dealing with end users. I'm not saying this would not help an admin but I would put my efforts elsewhere.

    I'm considering taking the MD-101 exam just so I can get the Modern Desktop Admin title. I already passed the 698 and the last time I checked the 698 is the equivalent of the MD-100. I have the MS Press Exam reference book.

    Still working on this...   I got side tracked with work and then I recently passed the Azure Fundamentals test. I'm currently studying for the 101 and Security Fundamentals at the same time. I was able to get free test vouchers for all of these exams but they have to be taken soon.  They both need to be done in about a month from now.
