    Thanks for the post! Just as I was looking into some microsoft certifications to do.
    I heard they're quite notorious for having the content of the exam be VERY different from what you study, so feel kind of anxious about attempting it.

        Yep will do. My company also has the exam reference guide book for the exam I'm interested in (MD-100), 300 page+ text book is quite daunting though

    Anyone looking to get a start or upskill in Microsoft's "Cloud" side of things i.e. Azure can go for the AZ-900.
    It's an easy one provided you put in the time (10-20 hrs) depending on your capability.
    There's also a free course on Microsoft Learn or an Instructor-led one through Microsoft Training Days.
    If you prefer Udemy, there a number of good instructors you could study from. I went for Scott Duffy (thanks Sir!) who kindly provided his paid course for free for a couple of days back then.
    I got it done over a weekend last year between lockdowns.
    Good luck! You got this!!!

  • Hello Cheapies,
    I'm working as a data analyst currently and I'm keen on upskilling myself.
    I'm looking for recommendations about which of these exams is a good stepping stone for someone new to MS?
