About MD-100?

If you're looking to achieve the Microsoft 365 Certified: Modern Desktop Administrator Associate (MDAA) certification, the MD-100 exam is your first step. This Windows 10 test evaluates an administrator's understanding of deploying and managing services in this popular operating system. Once complete, individuals can move on to take their MD-101 exam; a desktop administration certification program.

The MD-100 exam is geared towards assessing an administrator's familiarity with Windows' deployment, installation and management; however it addresses these topics at a basic level. This makes sense as the MDAA certification is tailored to junior administrators or those in their first job role due its focus on relevant job responsibilities and knowledge competencies expected of newcomers to this field.

The MD-100 exam is ideal for those new to administering Windows, as it covers a constrained yet comprehensive set of skills that are key in managing an enterprise network on Windows 10. After passing the examination you will be sufficiently confident and familiar with all necessary tools and interfaces needed to efficiently maintain multiple devices running on this platform.

What is on MD-100 Exam?

The MD-100 is a comprehensive two-hour test with 40 to 60 questions that assess one's knowledge of deploying, configuring, securing and managing devices and applications in an enterprise environment. This examination consist of four key objectives:

  • Deploying Windows
  • Ability to efficiently manage devices and data
  • Customize your storage and connection
  • Maintaining Windows

The Microsoft Modern Desktop Administrator Associate certification is comprised of both the MD-100 and MD-101 exams. The objectives associated with the latter include deploying and upgrading operating systems, managing policies and profiles, protecting devices, as well as managing apps and data. With these two tests combined under one roof you'll be able to confidently use your skillset in an ever changing landscape!

What prerequisites do I need to take the exam

The MD-100 is a perfect certification for those just starting their career as administrators with minimal experience. Though the exam may be daunting, you need not rely on prior job knowledge to excel in it – you simply have to prepare!

To ensure that desktop administrators embark on their career with Windows in the right way, Microsoft has developed the MD-100. This certification relies less on job experience and more on knowledge of specific procedures outlined by Windows. Therefore, if you have been using various methods to deploy and manage Windows independently for a while now, you may not be well-prepared for this exam since it focuses heavily on "by the book" regulations such as configuring mobility settings or managing users in Azure Active Directory.

Before attempting the MD-100, you should have substantial experience working with and configuring the Windows operating system. To give yourself the best chance of success however, you can also complete an MD-100 course that will assist in understanding what kind of answers Microsoft expects from its applicants and equip you with essential knowledge to pass it.
