  • Hi Gary,

    There were a lot of improvements made and new features added to the CRM 2011 product. Learning and certifying on this version of the product will probably put you in a better position to work with the next version.

    Having said that, if you have never taken a Microsoft certification exam you might feel more comfortable taking an exam for a product that you know well. 

    Regardless of which exam you take, you want to be prepared.  Here is the link to the Microsoft Learning site for CRM related exams:  http://www.microsoft.com/learning/en/us/certification/dynamics.aspx#tab2

    You should spend some time looking over the requirements for the exams and using the preparation materials list provided to fill in any gaps in your knowledge. 

    Good luck!
