Beginning my AZ-900 journey

D20D20 MemberFLMember Posts: 114 ■■■□□□□□□□
Started the other day with a course on Pluralsight. I'm now going through Tim Warner's YouTube series.
I'll probably pickup the Udemy practice tests as well soon to test myself once I have gotten through more material. 

I work full time, so I'm hoping to get this one passed and under my belt by the first of the year if not sooner. 

I'm hoping to take the AZ-900 then move on to the AZ-104. This is the plan at least.

Certifications: A+ Sec+
2021 Goals: Pass the Azure AZ-900

    I used MS free learning resources for all my Microsoft certs
    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/learn/certifications/exams/az-900

    It was enough to pass the exam. In plus - you have access to Azure based free labs
    I'm just doing my job, nothing personal, sorry

    60+ certs...and I'm not counting anymore

    I agree with @trojin. The free Microsoft material is more than enough for AZ-900. More than that would be overkill.
    Alphabet soup from (ISC)2, ISACA, GIAC, EC-Council, Microsoft, ITIL, Cisco, Scrum, CompTIA, etc.

    2022 goal(s): CRISC, maybe CGEIT or TOGAF

    Many thanks! I'm hoping within a few months I can understand all the material for this exam. We use Azure at work already, but I'm sure there is a lot more I can learn. :)
    This should be a fun journey! I do still need to see what it takes to keep MS certs current every year however.

    There is always more you can learn within Azure, but you do not need to know a lot to pass the AZ-900 exam.  ;)

    Good to know! I plan on doing the MS learn stuff and making some flash cards for terms, etc. 
    Looking forward to learning up!

    Good luck on your exam journey! Work has mandated me to write the same certification so hopefully I'm looking to clear it in the next month or two when I have some free time.

    Basically yes! You don't need to know how to do it, but what you would need if you did need to do it.
