It contains topics which used to be required for the PL-100 exam, but are no longer needed. Please enjoy.

The official Practice test

What is a good way to prepare for the PL-100 exam? Why not redo all of the quizzes and the Practice Test in this course.

After that, then please have a look at the official Microsoft Practice Test and assessment.

The Microsoft PL-100 Practice Test* is around US$100 (full price – it may be on sale). It has over 130 questions, and gives you detailed explanations for your answers. This enables you to get used to the style of questions asked and improve on your answers. I would keep doing the Practice Test until you get over 90% right before doing the actual exam. You can do the Practice Test as many times you want for 30 days (for an additional cost, you can extend it to 60 or 365 days, or you can download it onto your computer). We recommend the Practice Test if you are going to do just this one exam.

If you are going to do multiple Microsoft exams, then you may save money getting’s Subscription plan for individuals*. It costs around the price of 2 Practice Tests, and gives you 365-day online access to over 120 tests. It covers all the practice tests from MeasureUp’s catalog, including Windows Server, Azure, Office 365, SQL Server, SharePoint, Exchange Server, and more (including from CompTIA, Cisco, AWS, VMware, and PMI).

To avoid multiple users using this individual plan, you can only have one practice test active at once, and once you activate another practice test, you won’t be able to go back to the previous one for the rest of the subscription period. If you have multiple users, there is a Company version available.

The Microsoft PL-100 Assessment* is around US$20 (it may be on sale). This is good if you want a small sample of the questions so that you can say “yes, I’m ready”. However, it only includes 30 questions, you can only use it once (or twice, if you pay extra). It also doesn’t include any explanations or references.

Microsoft’s resources

You can also look at the official Microsoft Learning Path. There is over 20 Learning Paths with around 100 modules, which contain 5-15 web pages. Please note: these Learning Paths may not reflect the latest version of the PL-100 exam.

The exam requirements and how to schedule the exam

To see the exam requirements, please go to the Resources section in our course, where you can download a copy. Alternatively, go to Microsoft’s PL-100 Study Guide. Microsoft checks the requirements every couple of months, to ensure that they are up-to-date.

To schedule the exam, please go to the Microsoft PL-100 exam page and click on “Schedule exam”. You can then schedule the exam with Pearson Vue, either in person at a test center, or online. If you are doing your test on line, then you will need a webcam, an internet connection, a private, distraction-free place, and a government-issued ID.

You have just completed a video course on creating apps and flows in the Platform. Therefore, you might be interested in going deeper into Power Platform generally or in Power BI.

My courses follow the requirements of the official Microsoft exams or assessments, and there are plenty of quizzes or practice activities (as appropriate), so you can be sure that you are learning.

Our 11 hour PL-200 “Microsoft Power Platform Functional Consultant” course builds on what you have learnt in the PL-100 course. You will be learning about creating a Power Pages website, implementing Power Virtual Agents chatbots, and managing solutions.
