Azure AZ-103 Post 2

I’ve completed my training course on Linux Academy and I am now just getting more hands-on practice with the Azure Portal.

I’ve been looking around for some practice tests to try out but they seem to be all over the place in terms of questions. What I have found out is that the Azure exams are made up of the following;

  • Multiple answers
  • Single answers
  • Order the correct steps for a process
  • Hands-on Labs

It’s pretty hard to prepare for the hands-on labs when I have no idea on what they will be asking me to do, this is why I’m trying to get as much hands-on practice as possiable before going for the exam.

It’s hard to tell if I’m ready or not, compared to the GCP Exam it was pretty easy if you understood the case studies and the services explained in the Linux Academy course, you were good to go.

I’ve been focusing on understanding Service Endpoints and Application Security Groups.

I figured out that Service Endpoints enable you to be able to access an SQL database via a VM in the same VNet, rather than accessing it over the internet.

You would use an Application Security Group when you would want to assign network rules to a specific VM that was in a subnet with other VMs.

Some of the questions I find pretty weird as they are based on memorizing portal navigation.
