What is Data Science on Azure?

Azure is the Microsoft cloud and provides services in the cloud like virtual servers, web pages, big data, APIs, databases, Kubernetes, compute, analysis, etc.

Data Science can also be handled in Azure. Data science is the field that studies how to process and extract knowledge from the data. In Data Science, you need to use algorithms to get insights from the data. To extract the data, you will need to collect, clean, and analyze the data. It is also important to have a good knowledge of statistics to handle data.

What is the DP-100 Exam About?

The exam is about Azure Machine Learning Services: how to design and prepare ML solutions, how to explore data, how to deploy models, and how to train models. Basically, it is an exam about machine learning.

Is the Exam Difficult?

Yes, it is a complex topic. If you are an expert in Azure Machine Learning, you may have less difficulties than a non-experienced person. Take a look at the study guide, videos, and courses. If everything seems familiar, maybe the exam will not be so difficult. If you do not know Azure or Machine Learning, I recommend taking some basic exams about Azure first before taking this advanced exam.
