Passed the 70-533 Azure Infrastructure exam

Today I had registered for a second try of the 70-533 Azure Infrastructure exam, two weeks ago I tried this exam and failed, this time it was a bit more successful and I passed.

The first time doing the exam I was thinking that my knowledge in Azure would be enough but I was a bit wrong ­čśŤ

These last two weeks since my last try I have been studying and exploring the features and documentation on Azure and it is a seriously complex and full-featured cloud platform!

I will in this post give you some advice on what areas I have been studying if you are also aiming for taking this test..

First of all, you can see on the Microsoft Learning page on what areas that is covered in the exam,

I have used Azuremans blog post about the exam topics, Marius has also made a blog post about the exam and what to read and learn.

I have also used the Microsoft Virtual Academy : Establish Microsoft Azure IaaS Technical Fundamentals course.

Some of the links to Azure documentation and blog post that I have gone through during my hours of learning :
