Microsoft 365 Certified Developer Associate MS-600 Exam Prep

This course prepares developers to take and pass the MS-600 exam, the only prerequisite to achieving the Microsoft 365: Developer Associate certification.

Microsoft introduced a new certification for Microsoft 365 developers in late 2019. This course is the best guide, or roadmap for developers to prepare and pass the MS-600 exam, the only prerequisite to achieve Microsoft 365 Certified: Developer Associate.

Microsoft 365 Developer Associate certification

The Microsoft 365 Developer Associate certification identifies developers with a broad and deep knowledge across the five (5) major workloads in Microsoft 365:

  • Microsoft identity (Azure AD)
  • Microsoft Graph
  • Microsoft Teams
  • Office Add-ins
  • SharePoint Online

Microsoft created the certification in response to customer demand for a way to identify qualified candidates and their proficiency as Microsoft 365 developers.

MS-600: Building Applications and Solutions with Microsoft 365 Core Services

The MS-600 exam measures your ability to accomplish the following technical tasks:

  • implement Microsoft identity
  • build apps with Microsoft Graph
  • extend and customize SharePoint
  • extend Microsoft Teams
  • extend Office clients

Traditional Microsoft certification exam prep

Instructor-led courses charge you as much as $3,000 and require a dedicated a week of your time in virtual/in-person classrooms to prepare for the exam. In-person classes can require travel if one isn’t available near you, not to mention the health concerns of sitting in a packed classroom with others these days.

These instructor-led courses consist of lectures and hands-on labs. Microsoft 365 is always changing and improving. Have you ever wondered how often the instructor-led course materials are updated? Here’s a little secret: not often. Just think about Microsoft Teams - how many times has the user experience changed in the last year?

The instructors often don’t have experience in the subject matter or are even familiar with the content. Do you really want to learn from someone who’s not a recognized subject matter expert on the Microsoft 365 workloads the MS-600 is testing you on?

What if you’re a developer who already has experience with one of the five Microsoft 365 workloads? Why invest your time sitting through a course & pay hands-on labs you don’t need waste time you don’t have?

It's time for a change: our unique approach to exam prep

I'm a long-time web developer with extensive experience in every area the MS-600 exam tests you on. I've worked with Microsoft 365 going back to when it was first introduced as Office 365 in 2011.

In the spring and summer of 2019, I worked alongside leading Microsoft 365 developers in the industry on the certification. We identified the topics developers should know and be measured on for the certification.

Microsoft used that list to create a pool of questions for the MS-600 exam.

I was hired by Microsoft to develop most of the Microsoft Learning modules based on this same list of topics. These modules are fantastic resources for self-paced learning. They include documentation and hands-on labs.

Not only am I intimately familiar with these modules as the author, but I regularly refresh them so they're always current.

Prepare efficiently, on your schedule, at a fraction of the cost

What you need is a guide... a roadmap... to the certification exam.

It takes time to figure out all the different topics you need to know. You should focus your time on preparing for the exam.

In this course, you learn what topics the exam covers for each of the five (5) Microsoft 365 workloads. I explain what you need to know about each topic and which ones you can ignore.

What about hands-on labs? I've already them created for Microsoft - you shouldn't (and won't) have to pay for them.

For each topic, I'll bring you to these same hands-on labs. They are always current (refreshed quarterly) and unlike the in-person courses, you can complete these at your own pace if you need the extra practice.

    Included in the pre-release

  • Microsoft identity

    The Microsoft identity platform is an evolution of the Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) developer platform. Developers face a challenge in that many topics related to Microsoft identity don't apply to Microsoft 365 and therefore aren't measured on the MS-600 exam. In this chapter, you'll l learn what parts of the Microsoft identity platform you need to know in order to pass this section of the MS-600 exam.

    Estimated release: January 2021

    Estimated release: January 2021

  • SharePoint

    Microsoft SharePoint is a customizable platform that developers can extend with custom components. As it has been around for a very long time, the surface area and number of topics related to SharePoint development can be overwhelming. Thankfully, the MS-600 exam primarily focuses on the current recommended customization model: the SharePoint Framework. In this chapter, you'll learn what topics related to the SharePoint Framework you should be familiar with in order to pass this section of the MS-600 exam.

    Estimated release: February 2021

  • Microsoft Teams

    Microsoft Teams is an extensible platform you can create custom apps on; putting your app at the heart of your organizations collaboration platform. Microsoft is constantly updating Microsoft Teams and that can make it challenging to know what things the MS-600 exam will test you on. In this chapter, we focus on what extensibility points you need to be familiar with in order to pass the MS-600 exam.

    Estimated release: February 2021

What does it add up to?

From my experience in working with Microsoft on the Microsoft 365 Developer Associate certification, I know not only what topics are on the exam, but what materials are publicly & freely available.

In this course, I'm not asking you to pay for what you can get for free. Rather my course:

  • guidance on how to best prepare for the exam
  • clear instruction on what topics the MS-600 exam tests you on
  • helps you avoid topics you won't be tested on
  • includes workload-specific checklists for the topics you need to know before taking the exam
  • leverages existing hands-on labs when you need hands-on practice
  • on-demand access: study and prepare at your own pace & at your own time

Developers just like you love our MS-600 exam webinar series

Not sure if this is for you? Get a taste of what this course is like from our webinar series that previews each of the workloads covered in the MS-600 exam (watch them here). Hear what other just like you have said about them!

I came to know about MS-600 exams through Andrew’s free webinars for each of the five workloads. They clearly explain what you can expect from the certification and what resources you need to prepare yourself for the exam. There’s nowhere else you would get such clear and detailed information on how to approach the exam, I’m waiting for Andrew’s new course on the exam before I take the certification myself.

I thought the webinars were great in getting the info across on everything required for study - I had no idea at the time there was so much material available, and it was really good quality! As a result of studying it, I passed the exam first time.

I would like to say that the webinars were simply amazing. I went from being zero to a point where I got a very good understanding of all the concepts covered.

I really got a good confidence after learning about some of the behind the scenes information about the kind of questions which are asked in the exam. Also, about what topics to focus on and which can be left out. Thanks again!!!

Thank you for your webinar series on Microsoft 365 certifications. Nice presentation style and talk about real world scenarios implementation which all made for a really enjoyable and informative session. It not just helped to clear the certification exam, but to clear the concepts behind it. Thank you for sharing your knowledge with us. You are awesome!
