Exam DA-100 - Updated Exam

New Contributor

Hi Learn Team,

I see on the Skills Measured section of the exam page (link) that the exam will be updated on Sept 24 2021. I want to find out if these additions have been included in the learning modules. If not, are there additional material to use to understand and help prepare for the exam?

[I aim to start the learning modules this week outside work hours and in case it takes more than a month I want to be prepared for these additions when I'm ready for the exam]

Typically, not absolutely everything listed in the skills measured tasks for an exam are covered by the learning material. The learning modules will cover most,but when you look at the list of tasks in the skills measured https://query.prod.cms.rt.microsoft.com/cms/api/am/binary/RE4qlRu it is very extensive.
You need to supplement learning with hands-on and reading Microsoft docs.
What I do is print or copy the tasks listed in the skills measured (https://query.prod.cms.rt.microsoft.com/cms/api/am/binary/RE4qlRu) and assess my knowledge of them and plan my revision around the topics and tasks that I am weak on.
There are three new tasks in the September update and I am pretty sure these are not covered by Learn
- apply or change sensitivity labels - see https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/admin/service-security-apply-data-sensitivity-labels
- add a Smart Narrative visual - see https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/visuals/power-bi-visualization-smart-narrative
- use anomaly detection - see https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/visuals/power-bi-visualization-anomaly-detection

Thank you @Julian Sharp! I'll bookmark this link for revision of topics needed!
