If you’re starting your cloud certification journey , you might be very interested in taking some of the azure AZ exams. One such exam is the AZ900 which is a nice starting point in your certification pathway. I have recently passed my AZ900 exam and I would like to share my strategy so that it helps and inspires you to start your journey , or if you’re already on it , then I hope it contributes towards a passing grade.

Disclaimer:

As with any exam , the curriculum and the course content will evolve over time , please pay attention to when this blog was written and take into account that the exam and its content may have changed.

Resources for My Study Plan

I have a preference for a mixed learning environment, so I chose diverse study materials that complement each other. Here’s a breakdown of the resources I used:

1. Structured Learning via Udemy Course

  • To lay a solid foundation with a structured content and curriculum that systematically covers the essentials of Azure.

2. Concept Reinforcement with YouTube Study Cram

  • Watch a YouTube study cram video specifically designed to highlight and reinforce critical Azure concepts, making it easier to grasp and remember the material.

3. Review with Official AZ900 Study Guide

  • Create study notes based on the official AZ900 study guide, checking off each concept as I progress. This worked like a checklist to confirm that I’ve covered all necessary topics.

My Study Approach for Azure

Here’s how I structured my study approach in relation to my study material:

Week 1: Foundation Building

  • Udemy Course: Dedicated 1.5 hours daily to a 7.5-hour course I had purchased on Udemy. This pace was designed to fit my study sessions into my existing work and personal commitments, ensuring a balanced approach to learning.

Week 2: Review and Practice

  • Study Cram Session: Allocated 30 minutes to 1 hour each day to a 3.5-hour study cram available for free on YouTube. This session was not just about passive watching but involved active note-taking to reinforce my learning.
  • Revision and Practice Tests: Reserved the last couple of days for focused revision and taking practice tests. I planned to spend 1-2 hours on two practice tests the day before the exam. This helped me identify my weak areas and allowed me to allocate sufficient time for targeted revision.

Where can you get the study material

I highly recommend the following Udemy course.

AZ-900: Microsoft Azure Fundamentals Exam Prep – JAN 2024

I was recommended this study cram and it was really good.

AZ-900 Azure Fundamentals Study Cram – 2022 Edition! – OVER 900,000 VIEWS!

And finally make sure you get yourself a copy of the official exam guideline for the microsoft AZ900 exam.

Conclusion

The test was challenging and it definitely was a good idea to go through the course and youtube video content but the time I allocated was sufficient to get enough studying done in order to get a decent passing grade.
