  • Do you mean would it be best to skip this exam and look at training on a later version? If alternatively you mean is it ok to skip parts of the exam preparation if you feel comfortable with a specific topic then yes but be careful your exisiting knowledge covers the skills measured as shown on the exam page.

    The best way to prepare for any Microsoft exam from experience is to study do some practice tests to identify your weak areas and then study some more focusing on your weak areas. If you already have a solid knowledge of a paticular product then you can always start with the practice exams to identify your weak areas.

    As for if you are just referring to choosing exams then it is best to start off with what area of work you are already in or where you want to be using the exams as a way of proving knowledge on a given subject.

    The curriculum roadmap can help point you in the right direction if that is the case
