Studying for the Azure certification exams can be a daunting task. One of the most difficult things is knowing whether you’re ready to sit the actual exam or not. Take the exam too early, you’ll fail. Not understand how the questions will be written, you could fail. Over prepare, and you’ll pass but possibly waste some time. To really hone in on a certification exam, the use of a practice test / exam can be extremely useful. In an effort to help others studying for these exams, I have started creating a couple Free, Open Source Azure certification practice exams.

Run in Web Browser

When I studied for and passed the Azure certifications myself (last summer) I began creating an open source practice test for the 70-532 Developing Microsoft Azure Solutions exam to help in my studies. This test has been available over on Github ever since and I’ve made a few updates to it since that time. Recently I also started putting together an open source practice test for the 70-534 Architecting Microsoft Azure Solutions exam, as I think it will help a lot of people currently studying for that exam.

Here’s the links where you can take the practice tests (no downloading or installing) right within your web browser, from any device:


Free and Open Source

GitHub-Mark-120px-plusThese exams are free, open source and released under the MIT license. I encourage you to use them to help study and double check your study progress. Additionally, since these projects are Open Source and hosted on Github, anyone is more than welcome to submit pull requests if interested in contributing. In fact a couple pull requests have already been accepted!

Here are links to the Github repos for these practice tests:

We are a community. We are in this together. Let’s help each other out.
