Description

Update : 12-02-2019 -  Practice Test Added at the end of the course

This exam is designed for candidates looking to demonstrate foundation level knowledge of cloud services and how those services are provided with Microsoft Azure. The exam is intended for candidates with non-technical backgrounds, such as those involved in selling or purchasing cloud based solutions and services or who have some involvement with cloud based solutions and services, as well as those with a technical background who have a need to validate their foundation level knowledge around cloud services. Technical IT experience is not required however some general IT knowledge or experience would be beneficial.

This exam can be taken as an optional first step in learning about cloud services and how those concepts are exemplified by Microsoft Azure. It can be taken as a precursor to Microsoft Azure or Microsoft cloud services exams. While it would be a beneficial first step, validating foundation level knowledge, taking this exam is not a pre-requisite before taking any other Azure-based certifications.

In this course, You would find detailed explanations along with lab demonstrations for the services in Azure. There are review questions after every chapter and this would test your understanding chapter by chapter.
