Keep in mind that Microsoft varies the test for each taker, so my experience may be different from yours. Microsoft describes the test on this page. I spent evenings for a couple of weeks reading through all of the links on that page. It covered search from a user perspective, i. I would say the test does an accurate job of gauging proficiency in site owner level skills.
You need to know how to add, edit, and manipulate sites, pages, web parts and content. You need to know MySites and its sharing features. You need to know permissions, content types, site columns, document sets, and other essential functionality. Microsoft offers a few certifications in SharePoint, most of which are technical. The MOS SharePoint test is designed for SharePoint site owners who need to demonstrate their knowledge with creating SharePoint sub-sites and pages and managing access to that content.
I debated getting this certification for a while, but decided that it does provide some credibility and studying for the test would be useful. It was my first test in 11 years- since college. Hi, I am planning to take the exam and i need to find some materials to study for the exam.
Could you please provide me some good links to get some materials.. Steven, Do you know of any practice exams for this cert? Microsoft was running free retakes earlier this year. You might see if that program is still going on. That might be another option. Good luck! That test was pretty much the same way although I was so nervous. I hate tests.

Slow and steady, a bit tedious, but it gets the job done. I do not actively use SharePoint in my work wish I did. If I used SharePoint actively, understanding topics would be easier. I just hope I can pass the test in October or November before Microsoft ends the test availability.
I have finished the final lesson in SimpliLearn Lesson 10 and then I will practice with their questions for a couple of weeks. After I have pre-tested myself for a few weeks, then I will schedule for the test. Would that exam be helpful for me — as a beginner, if I want to start with SharePoint Would this exam be helpful for me — as a beginner, to start with SharePoint ?
