Practice Exams | Microsoft DA-100: MS Data Analyst Associate

Practice Exams | Microsoft DA-100: MS Data Analyst Associate

Price: $19.99

These tests are simulations of what the real exam will be like. If you ace these practice tests, you’ll be in good shape for the actual exam.

Each question has a detailed explanation and links to reference materials to support the answers which ensures accuracy of the problem solutions.

The questions will be shuffled each time you repeat the tests so you will need to know why an answer is correct, not just that the correct answer was item “B” last time you went through the test.

Data Analysts enable businesses to maximize the value of their data assets by using Microsoft Power BI. As a subject matter expert, Data Analysts are responsible for designing and building scalable data models, cleaning and transforming data, and enabling advanced analytic capabilities that provide meaningful business value through easy-to-comprehend data visualizations. Data Analysts also collaborate with key stakeholders across verticals to deliver relevant insights based on identified business requirements.

The Data Analyst should have a fundamental understanding of data repositories and data processing both on-premises and in the cloud.

This exam measures your ability to accomplish the following technical tasks: prepare the data; model the data; visualize the data; analyze the data; and deploy and maintain deliverables.
