How to pass Dynamics Sure Step 2010 Certification (MB5-858)

Here are some tips and tricks that one can look at to pass the exam:

Get the mocks of two courses 80199A and 80047A from partner source. Read the 80047A just to get an introduction of sure step. If you are not in project management position or have no knowledge about general project management stuff, then spend some time to go through 80047A in more detail. While reading it try to play around with the client tool for sure step 2010 but you need to draw some boundaries while looking at the documentation embedded within the tool, otherwise you will be reading the documentation for ever. Also focus on end of chapter exercises.

Once you are done with 80047, pick up 80199 case study based course. Try to visualize the implementation phases as you are doing the actual implementation. Again it is really necessary to look at the documentation in the client tool keeping the scope limited. What I have experienced is almost 50% of the exam questions can be answered if you have done a good job reading 80199 course.

You may also go for course 80235A (Managing  Microsoft Dynamics CRM implementations) but I didn't as the questions in the exam are not really related to specific Dynamics products. The course 80199A is quite enough I think.

I know most of readers who haven't done a single implementation or involved in such project will not second me but it is really important to have your involvement in at least one implementation not necessary for any Dynamics product could be any ERP before you attempt for this certification.

A good direction for certification preparation is the distribution of percentage for contents in exam. Take a look at http://www.microsoft.com/learning/en/us/exam.aspx?ID=MB5-858#tab2. You should follow this list of major topics get full coverage of test preparation.

In general try to focus on the following topics:
  • Focus on Optimization Offerings
  • Decision Accelerators
  • Project Types
  • Design Documents (Functional Requirements, Functional Design, Technical Design, Integration Design, Solution Design)
  • Project Charter, Project Scope, Project Closing
  • Implementation Roles (Customer, Partner roles)
  • Focus on Agile project type specifically
 If you get some time, it is good to go through the documentation in client tool. For any question, feel free to ask me (irananed).@gmail.com
