Preparing And Mastering The Microsoft Azure AZ-300 And AZ-301 Exams

In this article you will learn how to prepare and master the Microsoft Azure AZ-300 and AZ-301 exams.

Introduction

 
Microsoft Azure AZ-300 and AZ-301 are the new exams for the Azure Solution Architect Expert certification. The AZ-300 and AZ-301 exams replace the older 70-535 exam, which was retired on December 31, 2018. These two exams are part of Microsoft’s new role-based certification program. Candidates who pass both exams will earn the Microsoft Certified: Azure Solutions Architect Expert certification.
 
I have successfully completed both exam on August 2019 and Received mail from Microsoft saying “Congratulations on achieving your Microsoft certification Azure Solutions Architect Expert, and taking your career to the next level! A Microsoft certification can help you advance your skills, demonstrate clear business impact, and get hired or promoted”.

Microsoft Leaning and Labs

 
Microsoft Learning are publishing the lab instructions and lab files on GitHub. There is a GitHub repository for the AZ-300, Microsoft Azure Architect Technologies, and AZ-301, Microsoft Azure Architect Design, courses.
 
Within each repository there are lab guides in PDF format. If appropriate, there are accompanying zipped files with any additional files that are needed to complete the lab.
 

Pluralsight courses

 
I strongly recommend that you take a look at Pluralsight courses for all Azure Solutions Architect topics out there, they are high quality and really helpful. App Dev Manager Priti Kalani shares some tips on preparing for AZ-300 and AZ-301 using Pluralsight training content.

Microsoft and Pluralsight have partnered to give Azure learners access to 46 Pluralsight video courses. Anyone who redeems this benefit can use all Pluralsight features available to individual subscribers, including paths, Skill IQ, channels, and notes.

MICROSOFT AZ-301 and AZ-302 Dumps

 
Mindhub official partners with Microsoft to offer study materials, practice tests and special offers designed to help candidates prepare for Microsoft Certified Professional exams.
 
I also recommend you to buy a prep test, I am really happy with measureup prep tests. Using prep tests there is no guarantee that you will pass the exam, but they can represent a good learning material which you can use to learn and to test yourself about and see how much knowledge you have about AZ-300  and AZ 301 before you take official one.

Exam Result Day

 
The process of preparing for this exam was very interesting for me, sometimes stressful but at the end it was worth the effort and time. The best part is that I realized even I have good experience with Azure. There are always some topics that you are not good at, and you will need to learn and take a lot more time to understand them.
 
I passed the exam on my first attempt; I could have scored higher but at the end of the day passing the exam is the only important thing.
 
Certificate is only the proof that you took some time to learn and practice certain topics and that you have some knowledge in them, nothing else.
