My Microsoft Azure Certification Revision Sheets

I finally successfully passed the three exams necessary to certify as a Microsoft MCSD: Azure Solution Architect (now becoming the MCSE: Cloud Platform and Infrastructure). \o/

  • Exam 70-532: Developing Microsoft Azure Solutions
  • Exam 70-533: Implementing Microsoft Azure Infrastructure Solutions
  • Exam 70-534: Developing Microsoft Azure Solutions

It was no easy feat, not least because of the absolutely massive number of topics that you need to learn, but also that Microsoft decided to update the syllabus’s of all three exams just as I was ready to take them (Nov/Dec 2016).

The main updates were to change the focus from ‘Classic Portal/ ASM’ to ‘New Portal/ARM’ and also to include a whole set of new services too. However there is a grey area as some things still can’t be performed through the new portal and I didn’t totally trusted that exams would not touch on classic Cloud Services etc., so had to learn old and new.

Anyway, I consolidated all my learning and notes into what I thought would be a concise set of PowerPoint slides. However, due to the sheer number of subjects and the depth / detail of knowledge needed, I never completely finished the notes and it’s a hefty 58 slides long!!

Anyway in case others may find my notes useful you can view the slides here by clicking on any of the images below. Slide Index is under the images.

Or download it as a PowerPoint or PDF file.  If anyone does improve or supplement the PowerPoint file, please post back and I’ll update it here for others.

Caveats – Please note that these notes are not necessarily everything you need. Some subjects are pretty sparse or even blank as I didn’t get round to making notes or didn’t need or want to.
