Chapter 1 

  1. Answer: False. The Dynamics 365 Functional Consultant role is more than just customizing Dynamics 365 apps. The role involves customizing Power Platform but also the entire project life cycle before and after customization takes place.
  2. Answer: False. The Power Platform Functional Consultant role does not involve extending Power Platform. Extending it is covered by the Power Apps Developer role.
  3. Answer: False. The PL-200 exam has more question types than just multiple choice.
  4. Answer: A and C. The PL-200 exam is aimed at functional consultants who are brought into a project after the project has been planned and initiated. The solution architect will require the PL-200 exam as an associate-level certification as a pre-requisite.
  5. Answer: C - Applying. Questions in the PL-200 exam are in the middle of Bloom's taxonomy, above remembering and understanding, but below creating, that is, evaluating, analyzing, and applying.
