   ✍   We recommend taking atleast one complete video tutorial course besides any textual guides or books you plan to read. The best choice is the Official Microsoft Azure Tutorial Videos which provides bite-sized crisp learning experience on each topic. The quality of the information and clarity is cutting edge in every video.   ✍   In parallel with the videos, we suggest a patient walkthrough of all the topics included in the Official Microsoft AZ-900 Exam Guide. The questions in the exam often match the verbiageof the documentations of the topics in this guide. The Official Microsoft Azure Fundamentals AZ-900 Guide is perfectly designed to get you straight to the topics, and relate with the Microsoft documentations just the way you want it. Even more, online searching and reading of the fundamentals and related topics from the Azure AZ 900 guide will definitely help you achieve clarity for most of the topics. The Official AZ-900 Microsoft Practice Exam is expensive between $99 to $109 unlike the exams here.

Mandatory Tutorials

   ✍   Learning Azure requires some strong foundations initially on which we can build on later. There is an interesting analogy by Elon Musk, the mastermind behind SpaceX and Tesla Motors, to view knowledge as a semantic tree. Make sure you have a robust foundation of the fundamental principles and concepts, i.e. the trunk and the big branches. Only after that, we can move on to the details, i.e. the leaves and the small branches. This approach works remarkably in accelerated learning at later stages. Investing 5-6 hours is an affordable price to pay for each of the below videos to garner crystal clear concepts.

 ✍   For Learning Azure from the basics and skilling up to the next level in a few hours, the below video tutorial is a pretty nice fit. It walks through the essential components, features, functionalities, and use cases of Azure, along with interactive demos. It is recommended that you read more on the concepts along the way as the tutorial progresses. This will give a nice feel of how the environment interacts with the various integrated components. Some concepts like Governance can be best assimilated while viewing the functionalities and usage of the components like RBAC, resource locks, Azure Policy, Blueprints, and Cloud Adoption Framework.

   ✍   For an exhaustive learning experience, devote a few hours to the below tutorial. This video is elaborate, and deep dives into the finer concepts of Azure. It is recommended that you explore with as much variety of concepts as possible, since the more comprehensive your learning the better. Many of the times the scenarios in exam span across samples from industries and businesses that we see in our daily lives. Having frequent exposure to such scenarios will help you understand the variety of use cases where we can use Azure.

✍    The below Azure AZ 900 Tutorial provides you with a comprehensive exposure of the environment and related concepts. Plan to complete it in multiple seatings, to make the most out of this content-rich long video. It is recommended that you become thorough with the initial concepts first even though some may seem optional, before you plan to skip to the advanced finer details. Many of the topics and components referred in the lectures later for definitive gains and robust architecture will be using the concepts that you will learn below.

Besides that, check out our collection of videos listed in the section above on How to prepare for the Exam? Here we will recommend some more videos for Advanced Learning

On Azure Fundamentals, we recommend you to go through the below series to get an exceptional understanding from Azure Expert Tim Warner.

On AZ 900 Questions Analysis, here is a thorough walkthrough on all Azure AZ 900 Questions and more by Ravi Kirans, a Microsoft Azure Expert. You are not expected to do hands-on during the exam.

Practicing questions form an integral part of Azure learning, the video below by Azure experts will cover all the essential details in a brilliant way. You will not be asked to create or navigate using the Azure environment during the exam but this knowledge can boost your overall score with crystal clear understanding.

Tip #3: Key Focus Areas

The Microsoft Azure Fundamentals AZ 900 Certification Exam has Conceptual and Theoritical questions you are required to answer correctly to achieve a good score. The Exam Guide from the References section of the Menu will give you a comprehensive list of all topics. Among them, we advise to take special attention to the below key areas and practice quizzes from our Exams here: Benefits of Cloud Computing, Difference between Capital Expenditure and Operational Expenditure, Consumption-based Model, Shared Responsibility Model, IaaS, PaaS, Serverless Computing, SaaS, Public cloud, Private Cloud, Hybrid Cloud, Availability Zones, Resource Groups, Subscriptions, Azure Resource Manager, ACI, AKS, IoT Hub, IoT Central, Azure Sphere, Azure Databricks, Azure Cognitive Services, Azure Bot Service, Azure Portal, PowerShell, CLI, CloudSHell, Azure NSG, RBAC, Resource Locks, Azure Policies, and Service Level Agreements. 

Tip #4: Practice

Practice is at the heart of Azure. Solving practical problems multiple times daily will make sure you are well acquainted with the tool and can derive any insight whenever asked for. This will come handy during your examination as you can save your energy for the complex problems later, instead of getting exhausted with the easier ones. And with a huge collection of Microsoft Azure Fundamentals sample questions exactly like what you can expect in the main exam, you have all the tools you need here at

Tip #5: Google

Google can be a blessing if you know how to use it effectively. Though you are not permitted to use resources like books or search for answers online, you can recollect answers faster if you have practiced earlier and done research on those topics by searching specific answers online. Such reading provides clear understanding and conceptualization of the topics and helps remember the Azure topics with better clarity. 

From your online search results, we recommend visiting the links of the Microsoft Help Articles first. Often the answers are created in such a way that the verbiage will exactly match with the Azure Help Documentations. If you cannot find your answers in the Azure Help Guides, move on to the other search results. Wherever possible, try to answer the questions using Azure Official Documentations instead of other sites. Questions like the different types of subscriptions available in Azure and related security and networking concepts are best available in the Microsoft documentations itself. 

Tip #6: Get to the answer

Microsoft does not restrict how you arive at your answer as long as you get it right. Thus whether you logically analyze and eliminate the options to arrive at the correct answer or you know the answer to the tricky question that you stumbled upon it does not matter. The Microsoft Azure Fundamentals AZ 900 Certification Exam does not require you to use the tools in an Azure environment, but it helps answer the questions faster if you have prior experience working in Azure.

The Microsoft Azure Fundamentals AZ 900 Exam questions span across all categories from conceptual, to insight-driven, to management of various types of Azure resources, and to intensely enhance security and networking infrastructure of your Azure environment. Exposure to a variety of Azure environments and being able to analyze them effectively is a key skill in Azure. You only get one attempt per device for our free test. Based on the scores of thousands of test takers, we would advise you to be active in Azure for at least 12-16 weeks with various hands-on and theoretical problems before attempting this test to make the most out of this opportunity.

How to improve your score?

Optimizing your Score

Microsoft assesses your skills on different categories - Azure Concepts, Services, Azure Security, Governance, Service Level Agreements, and more. You can download the AZ-900 Exam Guide from the 'References' in the Menu above. Being strong in only one area and appearing for the exam can prove fatal. Unless you are well adept in every area, you are taking a gamble on your luck. Improving your score in Azure is possible only through rigorous practice and well-planned topic areas to study. If you would like further guidance, take our practice tests, or use the Contact option from the menu and reach out to us. Mention which email id you used to give our practice exam along with the date and time. We will review your results and send you a personalized feedback.

Continuous Assessment

Microsoft does not provide you detailed assessment score breakdown results after you complete the Certification Exam, so you will never know which questions you need to improve upon or which questions you answered correctly. That's why taking our Practice Tests is critical where we provide you real-time results as you progress. Microsoft clearly states that their exams are designed to measure skills, not enable skills. Hence their report only shows high level topic areas with percentage scores without further granularity.

Understanding Dumps

Well, it is no wonder that we are all enticed by a notion of a AZ 900 Azure Fundamentals Certification Dumps, that can enable us to pass the coveted Microsoft Azure Fundamentals AZ 900 Certification with lifelong validity within a couple of days.

Once the Proctor has completed your ID verification and environment review, a list of Rules and Agreements of the Exam will be read out to you, same as the ones mentioned above. You are required to audibly confirm Okay for each Rule mentioned by the Proctor. The Proctor will then help you get connected to the internet server where you will receive the optimal upload and download speed. This entire process can take 10-40 minutes

Scoring after the exam:

All exam scores are reported on a scale of 1 to 1,000 and are scaled such that the passing score is 700. Any score of 700 or greater is a "pass." Any score below 700 is a "fail." The actual number of items you need to answer correctly to pass is determined by a group of subject matter experts in conjunction with the Microsoft psychometrician during the development and maintenance of the exam. The passing score is based on the knowledge and skills needed to demonstrate competence in the skill domain and the difficulty of the questions that a candidate answers when taking the exam.
