Preparing for AZ-900
I started with learning paths documented by Microsoft
Note: This exam does not require hands-on experience, though Microsoft provides Sandbox environments in the above learning path, which I enjoyed practicing. You can also register to get US$200/- free credit on Azure services for 1st month.
My Exam & Result
I booked this exam in an exam center in Sydney. I got 28 questions in total. It took me 20 minutes to complete the exam then I spent another 10 minutes to review questions. On submission to the exam, I immediately received a score, which is perfect 100%. The exam center provided me a copy of my result.
Sharing is Caring
Based on my experience, I have created flashcards, which you can follow to learn all concepts & services needed for this exam. Also, you can use practice tests to gain confidence, so far more than 5K people have been benefited from practice tests on different platforms. You can buy flashcards & practice tests as a bundle also.
