Have you studied for a certification before and struggled with memorizing some of the content you have read?

I have indeed struggled with it! An example is that I studied for the Endpoint Administrator (MD-102) certification, where I had to memorize the different app types in Intune. Do you know what helped me? Flashcards!


I am excited to tell you more about a workshop where you can create your own flashcards later in this blog.

First, I will give you my tips and tricks for studying for a certification.


Studying for a Microsoft Certification

Are you looking at starting with a Microsoft certification and are wondering how to get started? Look no further, I will give you some tips and tricks below.





  1. First of all, I would recommend you take a look at the study guide. For this example, I will be using the MD-102 study guide. The study guide will be give you some insights on how much each topic will be covered in percentage on the exam.

  2.  Once you have become familiar with the study guide, it's time to learn! There isn't a better place learning, then Microsoft Learn. Here you have free materials that will help you prepare for your exam.

  3. Lastly, you will have to test your knowledge to see if you are ready for the exam. On the MD-102 exam, there are free practice assessments that will give you an idea of whether you are ready for the exam. 


I hope these tips and tricks will help you prepare for your certification. If you have any other tips, let us know in the comment section!


Flashcards with Microsoft Fabric and Azure OpenAI

When I had to use flashcards, I always had to create them manually. It takes a lot of time, which is better spent on reading and learning about the certification you are trying to achieve. You wouldn't believe me if I told you that, with a little work, you could actually use content directly from Microsoft Learn. This workshop will help you create your own flashcards with Fabric and OpenAI.



If you are interested in getting started, I would recommend you take a look at Github. 

There is a guide on how to setup the environment for the workshop with step-by-step guidance.



Flashcards are great if you have to memorize certain topics when you are reading content for a certification. It takes a lot of time to create manually, but I hope this solution can help you in the future. It's important to say that this solution can also help you prepare for certification renewals.


I hope that the tips from this blog can help you get started on your next Microsoft certification!
