I recently passed the Microsoft certification exam for 70-532: Developing Microsoft Azure Solutions. To celebrate this achievement, I would like to share some information that will help you prepare for the exam.
1. Read the Official Exam Prep book.
Exam Ref 70-532 Developing Microsoft Azure Solutions
by Zoiner Tejada, Michele Leroux Bustamante, Ike Ellis
2. Take notes while thoroughly reading the book.
Never underestimate the power of your own notes. By taking notes while reading the book, I was able to review the notes to remember key features just before I walked into the exam.
3. Watch the MVA course for 70-532 prep.
4. Watch the MVA course on Azure Fundamentals.
If you need a refresher on Azure Fundamentals, check out Bob Tabor‘s Azure Fundamentals video course on Microsoft Virtual Academy:
5. Watch the PowerShell video tutorial on Lynda.com.
If you’re new to PowerShell, Lynda.com has a great video tutorial on PowerShell. If you don’t have an account with them, you can start with a free trial.
6. Memorize the details of each pricing tier.
There are tables of data in the official book and in Azure documentation about pricing tiers for virtual machines, websites, SQL Server databases, etc. I would highly recommend reading through these tables thoroughly so that you’re prepared to answer questions where such knowledge is key.
7. Get some actual experience on Azure!

8. Download Visual Studio!
To get the development tools you need to work with the Azure SDK, download Visual Studio for free!
9. Now, get ready to schedule your exam!
Best of luck!
If you’ve been using BizSpark to get free Azure credits, you may heard of the BizSpark Plus program which has been giving out $60k of free Azure credits for a year’s worth of cloud goodness.
As of July 1, 2015, Microsoft will double that offer to $120k of free Azure credits!
Over the years, Microsoft Virtual Academy has grown to serve over 3 million registered users worldwide!
As of June 2015, the MVA website has undergone a new redesign, to include the following:
So far, I’ve co-hosted 2 MVA courses with my colleague James Quick, both on Construct 2 game development.
