How to Pass DA-100 exam?

Hi everyone! I've been preparing for the DA-100 certification exam for Power BI since December 2020 with absolutely zero prior experience before. I've completed the Microsoft Learning Path and taken part in a Dashboard in a Day workshop.

Was wondering if that is enough to pass the DA-100 exam. Is there anything else I should be using to study?
Also curious if we are allowed to use an internet browser during the proctored online exam to look for/check answers.


Thanks for your help! And good luck to anyone else also preparing for the exam!

Hi @DAvizpi2021 

Honestly I don't think that would be enough! I personnaly took courses on Udemy, Passed some Sample Exams, and of course and for most using Power bi in my day to day work.

In the exam no browser is allowed to be open, noting on your desk, no one in the room... all will be controled by microsoft plus you wont have time enough to look for answers elsewhere.

 

Good Luck

Hello, from personal experience the best is to do real model exam questions. I just wrote an article about the certification; there you can find some tips and information about the exam:

Also, if you are looking for model questions with solutions and explanations, here is a good option:

Hi @DAvizpi2021 

You can take the Official Practice Test to assess where you are up to in your prep.

DA-100: Analyzing Data with Microsoft Power BI Microsoft Official Practice Test (mindhub.com)

 

Do as much real world work as possible with PBI.
