I’m posting this a couple of days prior to biggest update so far to MS-900 Microsoft 365 Fundamentals exam, but but don’t panic if you have been preparing for the exam already, I’ll highlight the areas that will need to make sure you need to add to your existing studies and skills at the end of the post. So far it doesn’t look like the exam is reflecting some of the recent product name changes such as Office 365 Pro Plus to Microsoft 365 apps for Enterprise, but that shouldn’t really have too much of an impact at this point in the exam questions.

Describe cloud concepts (10-15%)

Describe the different types of cloud services available

Describe the benefits of and considerations for using a cloud service instead of onpremises services

Describe Core Microsoft 365 Services and Concepts (30-35%)

Describe options for deploying and supporting Windows and Office

Describe analytics capabilities in Microsoft 365

  • describe additional capabilities available when a customer purchases Azure Active Directory P1, Azure Active Directory P2,

At the start of the post I mentioned I would mention the new additions, so I’ll just give a quick list of things you may not have been preparing explicitly for.

  • MyAnalytics
  • Workplace Analytics
  • Microsoft Endpoint Manager including Configuration Manager (not just Intune)
  • Conditional Access
  • Power Automate
  • Insider Risk
  • Power Apps

The objective wording changes may highlight clarify some areas that you weren’t really sure would be covered, so your list of things that seem new could be different to the ones I’m presenting here.
