How to prepare:

It took me 3 Weeks to prepare for the exam.

Week 1 & 2: Start with AZ-900 course on Microsoft Learn portal

Week 3: Practice tests

Exam Day

  • Revisit the core concepts like compute, networking, security, pricing and support
  • The exam is of 60 mins, with 40-50 questions
  • The exam is neither very easy not tough so if you have covered all topics it should be easier to pass.
  • Login to Pearson VUE 30 mins prior to exam time and carry a valid ID and prepare your desk accordingly if you are attempting from home

This exam is not difficult to pass! It takes time and practice to prepare but nothing impossible. The thing is to find your learning routine and constant progress! Good Luck! 🙂
