Next month MS-900 gets a minor update, so there’s no need to be panic if you’ve already been preparing and are almost ready to sit the exam. It’s mostly catching up on some overdue name changes, rather than introducing new items.

So what were the changes, and was there anything that was missed? Office 365 ProPlus was updated to Microsoft 365 apps, Azure AD Basic was removed and replaced with Azure AD Free, and Security Center was updated to Microsoft 365 Security Center. That’s it, I was wasn’t kidding about it being a minor update. That’s a good thing though, because the exam is already incredibly broad, so specifically adding a bunch of new items in to the objectives wasn’t really needed.
