I am planning to take the Microsoft 70-533 exam. Do you have some tips to study for this exam?  Can you provide resources to build my skills for this exam?


Yes, as part of our SQL Server Certification tips, we will include an FAQ about this exam including videos, books, online courses and links.

Who should take this exam?

This exam is oriented to System Administrators, IT Professionals, Developers or other professionals who want to be certified in Microsoft Azure.

What is the exam about?

It is about Azure security, Azure Databases, Azure AD, Azure VM on Windows and Linux, Azure Web Apps, Azure Web and Mobile Apps and more.

This is my first Microsoft Exam. Do you recommend taking this exam first?

If you believe that the topics are familiar to you and you have several years of experience in these topics, you can take this exam directly. However, if you are a newbie in Azure and most of the topics covered, I strongly recommend starting with easier exams like the Microsoft exam 98-364 or maybe Exam 70-461. Once you have some experience with Microsoft exams, you can take Microsoft exam 70-532, which is related to this exam, but a little bit easier.

Is this exam difficult?

Yes. If you have no previous experience in Azure, it is very difficult. This exam requires advanced knowledge in IT, Networking, VM virtualization, Administration and development skills for Web and Mobile apps.

Do you recommend some books for this exam?

No. A big problem with Azure is that the Portal is new and many books are now obsolete. However, this may change in the future.

Do you recommend a practice test?

Yes, here you have some practice tests:
