  • How does Microsoft decide how many questions on a particular subject to include on the exam?

    The skills measured on an exam are identified by subject-matter experts external to Microsoft (in other words, they are not Microsoft employees). This list of skills, called the “objective domain,” is the basis for exam development. The number of questions that measure each skill area is determined through the blueprinting process; sections of the exam measuring critical and/or more frequently performed skills will contain more questions than those that assess less important or less frequently performed skills.

  • Will the exam cover material that is not covered in the Microsoft training or Microsoft Press book I am using to prepare for the exam?

    All learning materials related to a given job role are built from the same job task analysis. As a result, the learning content should be closely aligned to the exams. Keep in mind, however, that the learning materials are developed independently of exam content because the exams are intended to assess competence in the job role, not the effectiveness of training materials or learning. Because the exams are designed to assess your ability to apply skills beyond what was explicitly covered in the learning, the skills will be assessed at a higher level than was taught in the training. For some candidates, this can give the impression that the skill was not taught in the associated learning; however, all skills assessed on the exam are included in our learning options.

  • How should I prepare for an exam?

    The best way to prepare for an exam is to practice the skills listed on the Exam Details page. Browse all exams to find the exam that interests you. Hands-on experience with the technology is required to successfully pass Microsoft Certification exams. The associated microlearning, online courses, and instructor-led courses are intended to train the skills needed to be successful in the job role, a subset of which will be assessed on the exam. However, because the exam focuses on application of those skills beyond what was taught in these courses, experience or practice in addition to training is strongly recommended prior to taking the exam. To start preparing, review the “Skills measured” section of the Exam Details page and evaluate your skills against what is being assessed on the exam. The best way to do this is to actually perform the tasks listed and note any challenges that you encountered. Practice until you no longer experience those challenges.

    Microsoft Certified Trainers work with many candidates as they prepare for certifications. They often recommend the following steps to help candidates focus their studies:

    Browse all exams to find the exam that interests you.
    Print the Skills Measured section of the page.
    Review the entire list. Think about each topic. If you are very knowledgeable on a specific topic, highlight the topic or cross it out.
    Look at what is left. Now, start some targeted research. For each topic that you did not highlight, search the web for specific articles.
    Use authoritative sources such as docs.microsoft.com, msdn.microsoft.com, technet.microsoft.com, and the Office 365 support center
    You might also want to ask others how they perform those tasks, read white papers, MSDN, or TechNet to get additional information about the tasks that are included on the exam, and/or explore the resources provided in the “Preparation materials” section on the Exam Details page which will link to any available online courses, microlearning, options and a portal where you can find instructor-led training options in your area.

    Additionally, Microsoft Official Practice Tests are available for some of our certification exams. These may provide more information about your specific strengths and weaknesses. However, passing a practice test is not a guarantee that you will pass the certification exam.

    If you have taken the exam and not passed, prioritize the skills that you should practice by focusing on the content areas where your exam performance was the weakest and the content areas that have the highest percentage of questions.

What is Microsoft Azure Fundamentals?

Azure-Fundamental-img

The Microsoft Azure Fundamentals is a role-based certification path. It validated a candidate’s primary level knowledge of Azure and it’s services. The AZ-900 exam is a necessary qualifier for gaining this certification. The exam is considerably lighter in comparison to the other certification exam in the Azure series. Candidates both from a technical and nontechnical background are eligible for the certification.

The Microsoft Azure Fundamentals does not require any specific prerequisites. Experience in cloud and programming may not be a necessity. This certification is suitable for those who may be engaged in the sale and purchase of cloud services. While the exam is an excellent precursor to Other Azure certifications it is not a compulsory prerequisite for those certifications. For IT professionals, in particular, the certification exam can be a decent start for the rather significant Azure roles of developer, system administrator, solution architect, etc.

What is cloud computing, in simple terms?

Cloud computing is the delivery of on-demand computing services from applications to storage and processing power typically over the internet and on a pay-as-you-go basis. Cloud computing is a popular option for people and businesses for a number of reasons including cost savings, increased productivity, speed and efficiency, performance, and security. Cloud computing is named as such because the information being accessed is found remotely in the cloud or a virtual space. Companies that provide cloud services enable users to store files and applications on remote servers and then access all the data via the Internet. This means the user is not required to be in a specific place to gain access to it, allowing the user to work remotely.

Benefits of Cloud Computing

Azure-Fundamental-img

Cloud computing offers your business many benefits. It allows you to set up what is essentially a virtual office to give you the flexibility of connecting to your business anywhere, any time. With the growing number of web-enabled devices used in today's business environment (e.g. smartphones, tablets), access to your data is even easier. It also offers big businesses huge cost-saving potential. Before the cloud became a viable alternative, companies were required to purchase, construct, and maintain costly information management technology and infrastructure. Companies can swap costly server centers and IT departments for fast Internet connections, where employees interact with the cloud online to complete their tasks. The cloud structure allows individuals to save storage space on their desktops or laptops.

Take up Cloud Computing Certification

Over the past few years, the cloud computing industry has generated a lot of interest and investment. Cloud computing has become an integral part of the IT infrastructure for many companies worldwide. Cloud computing is one of the most important investments in modern IT and it’s grown to become a top priority for all organizations. That means IT professionals with cloud skills are in high demand and certifications can help make you even more hirable by validating your cloud skills and expertise. And cloud certifications can go a long way in boosting your IT salary. Whether you’re just getting into cloud computing or you’re ready to take the next step in your IT career, there’s a certification that can help get you where you want to be.

The Demand for Cloud Computing Professionals Will Continue to Grow

Azure-Fundamental-img

Organizations are looking for IT professionals who have gained professional training in cloud computing and can help them implement a cloud environment into their infrastructure as seamlessly as possible. The number of jobs in Microsoft cloud (Azure) has increased over the years, and a study of 120 Microsoft partners indicated that hiring companies had tough time sourcing professionals who were skilled to work on the Microsoft Azure platform. A certification in Azure Infrastructure Solutions will enable you to have the skills necessary for those jobs.

Secure Jobs

If you gain the latest skills in cloud computing, you can land jobs that aren’t influenced by volatile market conditions. This is because most companies find it difficult to find IT professionals with the cloud computing skills they need.

Azure-Fundamental-img

It Proves Your Expertise and Promotes Credibility with Employer and Peers

Azure-Fundamental-img

Certifications are a great way to measure knowledge and skills against industry benchmarks. According to Microsoft and IDC, certification, training, and experience are three of the top four important attributes an organization looks for when hiring for a cloud-related position. A certification in cloud computing implies that you are skilled to help your organization reduce risks and costs to implement your workloads and projects on different cloud platforms. This will provide opportunities for cloud-related projects, and your clients will see you as a credible subject matter expert. It shows that you can work on complex procedures and handle cloud deployment in an enterprise.

Cloud Technology Is The Past, Present, and The Future

Over the last few years, cloud technology has transformed the way businesses operate. Whether you’re planning to carve an entry into this domain or looking to grow your cloud computing career, a certification will help you gain the most-recent skills and contribute to your organization’s business. Building the infrastructure to support cloud computing now accounts for more than a third of all IT spending worldwide, according to research from IDC. Meanwhile spending on traditional, in-house IT continues to slide as computing workloads continue to move to the cloud, whether that is public cloud services offered by vendors or private clouds built by enterprises themselves.
