Warehouse Management in Microsoft Dynamics–Navision 4.0 Exam

TomasTomas Member Posts: 420
Just random ramblings about certifications.

I've recently solved a few issues with Warehouse Management. Therefore, I've decided to have a look at training materials provided from Microsoft. If you are partner, you probably can access training materials via link on partnersource.

However, I was a little bit dissapointed. As... by solving issues in practise, you learn much more than you can read and try from training materials. At least, I didn't find the answers for questions I was looking for.

So, I've decided to book exam on prometric, and to check how easy or hard actual tests are. As, if you download some test samples from the internet, they seem pretty basic.

However, 80 questions with passing rate of 70% seems funny to me. If you would try to look from different perspective, would you like to fly with a plane, which engineers checked with 70% of concentration? You are allowed to make 24 mistakes... this probably means that most questions will not come from "hand-on practise"?

    I've been through high school, college, university, and several certification exams, and have yet to experience a test that accurately tests my ability to 'do' anything. Exams are meant to measure what you 'know'.

    I agree. I've gone through both development exams, warehouse, and trade and none really measured my ability about what I can do. Especially the warehouse exam.

    If someone thinks that after reading that book and taking that exam that they could run a warehouse with Navision they are crazy.

    Before I went to college I always thought it would enhance my understanding of the topics. I was very disappointed when I found out that it was more about memorizing lists of things than applying knowledge creatively. I've always joked that a university degree often looks more like an expensive course on how to use the library :mrgreen:

    funny, but in most cases I guess it's true ;-)

    Of course it was mostly my 17-year old arrogant excuse for laziness :mrgreen:

    Well,

    I've passed this exam. Scenario questions sometimes sounded unreasonably, but quite easy to understand, if you look at it step by step. Questions regarding "where to define setup" for lot tracking/serial tracking/bins/locations/etc were more than easy, as it comes from practise I guess.

    Overall, I've got 93 but there were some questions to which I could say "i actually don't know".
