Update: Did Kevin pass Azure test 70-532?

Let me reveal my answer to you in the form of a couple of test questions:

1. Kevin found the test harder than he expected.

  • True
  • False

2. What areas did Kevin wish he had studied and understood more deeply during the test?

A.  Code.  Actual C# code against Azure web and identity services

B.  Azure Functions. I know the overview, but had to guess on some of the “fill in the blank” code snippets

C.  Programmatic use of messaging; again, you should know what the code looks like for this.

D.  All of the above.

3.  In spite of himself, Kevin passed.

  • True!
  • False

It’s not uncommon to go into a test and get a little flustered with questions that are just outside of the areas you studied, or perhaps went into depth or details you weren’t expecting.  It makes affirming that last “Are you sure (you want to exit the test and see you’re a miserable failure)?” question that much more difficult to click.  But I clicked it, and found that I had indeed passed.  So.. not so miserable! 

And there was much rejoicing...

“What’s next?  Are you going to re-do 70-533 again?”

Y’know, I actually think I might look into another track entirely.. like maybe the CISSP certification, or maybe some Amazon Web Services training and certs.  I know Azure really well, but only know the basics of AWS

So, how about you?  Are you on your own certification adventure?  Feel free to share with us in the comments!

  1. I also found that 533 was a bit harder than I thought it was going to be… especially since I do a lot of this stuff daily. Great to see the exams are getting tougher and that they require not just study/cram sessions, but real world knowledge of what is being tested.
