Introduction to Microsoft Modern Desktop Administrator MD-100 and MD-101 Exams

by Glenn Weadock

The two Windows 10 learning paths present different views of the Windows 10 curriculum and are built on different Microsoft outlines. This mini-course examines the topics in each track, how they overlap, and how they differ.

What you'll learn

Microsoft’s outlines for Windows 10 certification as a “Modern Desktop Administrator Associate” cover two learning paths: the MD-100 path, titled Windows 10, and the MD-101 path, titled Managing Modern Desktops. These outlines have different emphases, but some topics overlap. This mini-course presents a guide to both tracks and synopses of the courses. It also explains the areas of overlap and where the two learning paths differ in terms both of content and emphasis. We conclude with study recommendations for both IT administrators and exam candidates.
