So I recently passed the DP-900 exam. For me as an IT Pro of 20 years now, this was doable without too much prep. But I passed nearly, so I guess I was a bit lucky too. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Here are my tips for preparing for the exam.

Step 1: Microsoft Learn self-paced training ๐Ÿ‘Ÿ

Take the self-paced training on Microsoft Learn. This will get you up to speed with the basics of Azure Data Fundamentals.

Step 2: John Savillโ€™s DP-900 study cram v2.0 ๐Ÿ“ผ

This video from John gave me a better insight in some of the concepts. Johnโ€™s way of explaining things really suits me.

Step 3: Microsoft Learn resources ๐Ÿ“š

The following resources are based on the things I needed to learn more about myself. Can be different from your shortlist. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Step 4: Practice exam ๐Ÿ“

Take the practice exam(https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/credentials/certifications/exams/dp-900/practice/assessment?assessment-type=practice&assessmentId=24&WT.mc_id=AZ-MVP-5004700). This will give you a good idea of what to expect. You can check your answers right away to get instant feedback.

Step 5: Exam โœ๏ธ

Good luck with the DP-900 exam, donโ€™t stress about it. If it helps, I failed a good amount myself at the first try. Just try again and youโ€™ll get there. ๐Ÿ‘
