All core level exams for Dynamics GP and NAV are now available. Each exam tests knowledge, skill and experience in the categories listed below. The percentage listed next to each category is the estimated percentage of test questions which will target the particular category.

The committees which write DynamicsPro exams strive to deliver a fair set of questions which measure knowledge, skills and experience with Dynamics. Exams do not include trick, overly complicated or esoteric questions.

The committees go through a rigorous process to finalize what you see below. They wish to present a fair listing of what will be covered on each exam. The outlines are not intended to represent a complete list of every topic that could be on the exam.
