7 golden tips for passing Microsoft exams

Microsoft is today the major supplier of basic IT infrastructure and therefore it is very important that you get your Microsoft certification. Being a professional Microsoft certified you get more visibility, credibility and, above all, increase your profitability, whether you are a service provider or an employee.

Tip 1: Think positive

Negative thoughts can limit your ability and hinder the exam. So eliminate thoughts like:
"I'm not good at proofing" or "I don't know if I'm ready for it"
Passing Microsoft exams requires nothing but dedication, time and effort. If you're the type of person who wants to succeed, but doesn't want to try hard, you're in the wrong place. However, if you want to leverage your IT career, dive in that everything will be fine.

Tip 2: Take time to study

You will need to dedicate one to two hours a day to learn the content and review the labs. It is necessary to be focused and not be distracted by the environment around you. If possible go to a room and stay there while studying, if listening to music helps you to concentrate, it is also a good choice.

Tip 3: Read official Microsoft books

Reading the official Microsoft material is a big step to pass, as it is guaranteed that all material will be covered and you will not forget any details that might be pranks at the time of the exam. In my experiments I used Microsoft's EXAM REF series books.

Tip 4: In-person or online courses

If you have the opportunity to pay for an official classroom course, it will be a great addition. However, we know that there are no training centers in all regions of Brazil. In these cases, it is possible to go for online courses, which come at affordable prices and it is possible to find top quality materials.
I will also leave a link to udemy, an online course platform where you can find a wide range of courses related to Microsoft certifications: Go to Udemy courses

Tip 5: Theory x Practice

As already mentioned in tip 3, it will be necessary to carry out laboratories to make sure you have learned and acquire proficiency in the technology you are studying, as the test may drop several malicious questions that can confuse you if you do not know in depth what you are studying.
Install Hyper-V on your PC and upload some VMs from Servers and Desktops to simulate a corporate environment.

Tip 6: Study English

It sounds obvious, but the best materials to study for a Microsoft certification are available in English only. It is essential that you at least have a good technical reading.
