Why should I take a certification? What does this certificate bring me? These are questions I am often asked. In all honesty, there is no exact answer to these questions. Let me explain how it would answer for me.

The first question: I'm getting to know a new technology, I invest a lot of time, so why not complete this assignment with a certificate!

Question number two: For me it is just a great feeling to learn new things, to keep up with the times and to get a new certificate. It also looks great in the CV (curriculum vitae) ;-)!

 

My exam preparation checklist:

 

1. Read through the skills measured at your leisure

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/learn/certifications/exams/az-104

 

2.Read the Study Guide by @thomasmaurer . This is super helpful information!

3. Create a free Azure account, if you don't already have one, so that you can do all the exercises in a hands-on manner

4. Take a close look at the Microsoft learning path, even better work through it right away (the learning paths are listed a little further down on the website)

5. Register for the exam early. This creates some pressure and you stay motivated

6. Practice, practice, practice ... With examples from the Microsoft Azure documentation portal

I hope this information helps you and that you successfully pass the exam. I wish you success!

Kind regards, Tom Wechsler
