Finally got the results. Passed it. Thank you! :)


@allisonkraker  I found out this by accident over weekend as was going to schedule my AZ-900 exam and saw I had passed the Beta DA-100 - yah !  My question though, being this a newbie to certifications - I was expecting to receive an email alert that I had passed ?  Should I have received an email as otherwise I wouldn't of known if hadn't happen to logon to my dashboard.  Appreciate feedback and so happy I passed this :)


Hello @PowerBeeEye,


Congrats on your pass! Unfortunately, there is no notification for exam results. As per the usual process, you'd get your results instantly, and I suppose for the special case of beta exam results such a solution was not considered. I myself checked the page every workday, plus the Twitter-Feed of @LibertyMunson, who would usually send out a post when the results go live.


The pass on the dashboard is nice, BUT I was worried about having not passed, in which case the dashboard would not show this result and you'd have to walk through to the PearsonVUE website to see the Fail. Perhaps an E-mail notification for the results of beta exams would be nice, everyone would want to know after weeks and months, even if it is a fail.

@allisonkraker I was wondering if there is a place to find the sample files shown in the associated learning paths for this certification? Thanks so much for any direction you can provide! 


@austin950 If you start the lab you will have access to a virtual machine with the lab files.

They are on the D: drive

I suspect they are on GitHub somewhere but I can't find the repository.
