    @Laziz - Thanks for your question. I am not aware of any certification preparation session on Dynamics 365.

    Thank you Selina for sharing. This is very interesting. Please advise if there is any prep session for MCSA BI Reporting exams, 70-778 and 70-779

    @mehdi - unfortunately, there were no cert prep sessions at Ignite for 70-778 or 70-779. However, I do know that there were prep sessions held recently for these exams in another forum.  While we may not have recordings, we might have the materials. I'll check and provide an update if I can get access to these materials.  Thanks.

    @rajkumar - you can start with the exam details page for that exam here.

    You'll see links to an exam prep video from Ignite, as well as ILT and practice tests that should help you prepare.  

    We also have Azure MOOC courses available in this domain area on  While they are not designed as exam prep, they do provide good underlying knowledge and hands on exercises for this area.  

    The courses that cover this area on include:

    Online Training

    Microsoft Azure Virtual Machines

    Microsoft Azure Virtual Networks

    Microsoft Azure Identity

    Microsoft Azure Storage

    Microsoft Azure App Service

    Databases in Azure

    Automating Azure Workloads

    Note, that exam 534 has retired and as a result web registration is no longer available. If have not yet registered, but you want to take this exam, you'll need to call Pearson VUE or register directly at a testing center.  Otherwise, you might want to look at the replacement exam 535.
