    One more thing, I can't believe there are classroom courses where you are supposed to learn everything in 3 days and then take the exam. No way, unless they simply teach exactly what is on the exam and no more and get you to simply memorize questions and answers. It took me more than a week to work through the learning path, and then 3 days of studying after that. Not counting the week or more spent on the fundamentals certification. I noticed that those "garunteed" pass classes use all kinds of weasel words on the garuntee. Looks like you can take the class again for free after waiting a month or so for the next one, but you have to pay the hunreds of pounds for sitting the exam again yourself.

    Thank you so much. I am also going through Microsoft Learn. Just upgraded and now into Databricks. I will follow it up with practice test of Measurup.

    Which specific topic related questions did you find tricky, so that I can prepare.

    I'd rather not go into specific detail about what's on the test, but when you take the practice test for the first time you'll be amazed at how much stuff there still is to learn. I actually had to double check that the practice test was actually the right one because they were asking about stuff I hadn't even heard of after I did the whole Microsoft Learn path. The good new is that there isn't a whole lot that is on the exam and not on the various practice tests.

    Don't forget to keep an eye on those credits to avoid a £150 surprise.

    I am not keen on specifics as they are against T&C. Did you get Powershell or T-SQL or .Net commands? Did you have a lab related Questions?

    To be honest, I actually can't remember what specific types of questions were on the exam versus the various practice tests I filled my head with. Also, I'd bet that the actual questions are rotated randomly to combat cheaters so if I said there's not T-SQL it might be different for you.

    In general, there's nothing new on the actual exam that is not covered on the practice tests.

    Yesterday and today I've been working on DP-201 and it's totally different. There's no defined learning path, and there's a lot of information about Hadoop and Spark that I haven't learned yet.
