Late last year MS-900 got 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. The changes are naming related, but there are a few other things that need an update as well. What were the name changes?

The Azure Active Directory Premium edition names were corrected, but a couple of things still need to be corrected, but I won’t update them in the list below, instead I’ll just mention them in this paragraph. The reference to System Center instead of Configuration Manager in the endpoint management section is still there, Windows Virtual Desktop (WVD) hasn’t been updated to Azure Virtual Desktop (AVD), and the renaming of Cloud App Security to Defender for Cloud Apps was just after the updated skills measured document went live, so they get a free pass on that this time.
