Azure Solutions Architect role-based exam prep: AZ-301 Design - BRK3387

Azure Solutions Architect role-based exam prep: AZ-301 Design – BRK3387

good morning everyone how are we doing this Wednesday enjoying it night so far how many people followed me over from the first exam prep session that we just did okay about half so the first couple minutes were going to be the same thing for for anyone knew they wasn't in that first session we're gonna talk about the two new exams 300 and 301 just kind of the credential as a whole and we'll get started so my name is Charles cluedo I'm an escalation engineer and Microsoft and this session specifically is an exam prep for the design portion or the design exam of the new azure architect credential so the idea here today is that we're gonna do an overview of the certification go through the objectives for this specific exam this is a Z 301 we just talked about 300 in the other session go through how to prepare what the what those objectives look like for the topics on the exam arm and then what actions you can take away to be able to go study and prepare to pass this exam so again this is AZ 301 we'll talk about different studying material we'll go through the objectives the slides have some some links and resources you can download download those later from the ignite page and the takeaway is there is you can have those topics we'll go through some clothes some the idea of a question what questions look like on the exams so that you can you can go take that so first just an overview of the new certifications so we've announced four new azure job roles on Monday in addition to some other job roles for Microsoft 365 so for Azure specifically we've got as your administrator so this is replaced the 7533 exam we have Azure developer just replaces the the 532 exam and the Azure Solutions Architect so that's what we're talking about in that replaces 535 and then coming soon in the future the next couple months we'll have the azure DevOps engineer so the idea behind these certifications is that we've broken them up into three different levels first is a fundamentals level this is just kind of the basics what is cloud what is I as what is PA's you know what what do you need to know before you even log into the portal and try to do something at the associate level are two of the other roles first is the azure administrator associate and then the azure developer associate and then at the expert level we have the Solutions Architect and the one in the future the DevOps engineer the only thing to maybe keep in mind about the the difference between associate and expert would be that for this credential specifically Solutions Architect there's no prereqs really you can just go take these exams 300 301 get to credential you don't have to worry about passing anything first or taking any other exams for that for the for the DevOps engineer when that comes you see to the connected lines there that will be that will be after you take either the the cloud admin or the azure admin and the azure developer exam so those either one of those would be a prerequisite before you go take DevOps as far as transitions available so has anyone past 5:35 a few so if you already have 5:35 you can transition up to this new credential by taking the exam code AZ 302 the table there in the bottom right of the slide so with 5:35 you can transition up it's only one exam rather than two it's still the same topics it's a combination of AZ 380 301 but then you only have to take the one exam there's anyone past 534 and not 535 okay also a member of people so unfortunately there's not a direct transition from 534 since that was already retired so you've got two options you can you can take 535 which will be retired the end of the year in transition and all of the transition exams are only going to be available until March or you can just go ahead and look at the two new exams start again with with 300 and 301 and in either scenario if you have 534 you have to take two exams whether it be the 535 first and then transition or just go ahead with with 300 and 301 so when we talk about the the new credentials so the as your admin developer solution architect they're they're all based around a job role so rather than having certifications or credentials based around individual products or trying to force the solution on a product all of these new credentials have been based around a job role so for the the solution architect in particular you're expected to know a lot of the technical details so that's mainly the the 300 exam what is the the virtualization what is the networking what kind of identity and security requirements there's a solution need but at the same time you also have to take into other considerations for the design what what are the billing aspects how much money are we spending by by deploying the solution on a monthly basis is the solution that we're deploying compliant there's a comply with our organization policies does it comply with any industry policies regulations GDP are things like that so those are the ideas that are taken when when creating this job role and then thus the the credential that follows it so looking at this role in the credential the different courses that are available for preparation so we're focusing on 301 404 this exam prep in this exam so that's the learning path on the bottom there we've got four main courses that trends that translates to the the 301 exam and when you pass both the 300 and 301 exams then you're assigned as your solutions architect expert credential so some exam based is there anyone in this session that has not taken a microsoft exam before brand new to exams okay quite a few yeah the idea when you go in and register for an exam and you take an exam you'll get between forty to sixty questions some of them are multiple-choice some of them are or what we call innovative it might be a graphic and you have to interpret the graphic be able to answer questions and maybe they'll give you an arm template or a screen shot of a bunch of settings and then what is the result of what was deployed or what will this deployment do or change so not all not all of the questions are equal not everything is worth one point sometimes there are questions that have multiple drop-down boxes or multiple answer choices and those are typically worth more than one point each answer is normally worth the point there's there's never a penalty for trying to guess so if you don't know an answer apparent points aren't going to be deducted for getting something wrong and there are some special item types within the within the exam that are similar to case studies so that when you pass that item you can't go back to it and so at least when you're making the first pass be sure to answer all of the questions even if you're guessing and then you can if it's something you can go back for you can mark it for review or if not some of the items when you click Next that's it you can go back to that item most of the exams are you three hours 180 minutes that's broken up into a few minutes to start you sign an NDA gives you the instructions tells you about how to use the different item types then you get two and a half hours for the exam itself and then at the end you get a few more minutes to answer questions go back and review provide comments on items I would ask since since these are in beta if you plan on taking either of the exams this week but please absolutely provide comments at the end of the exam you know take so they give you about ten or fifteen minutes at the please do take that if there was if there were any questions that weren't clear as to what you know what that question was asking had maybe conflicting information just didn't make sense and provide that provide them in a comment and the exam team will 100% look at every every comment while while an item is in beta or while in exam is in beta and then finally um case studies so most of these exams will have case studies where you're given a whole bunch of information business requirements technical requirements existing environment on pre-existing environment in the cloud any applications that have already been deployed or might be deployed and then when you get a question so it doesn't have any scenario or anything with it you're just asked to go figure out a how to deploy an app and you have to go back and look through the case study find the requirement of that app and be able to answer the question all of the new exams will eventually have performance-based testing right now the cloud administrator role or exams have this so when you go in and take the exam you'll be presented with an actual Azure subscription it's not a simulation it's not pre-recorded it's not half working it is a real Azure environment you'll be given a task list from seven to nine tasks or so and it'll measure based on whether those tasks were done it doesn't matter how you do them you can do them in a portal you can use the cloud shell environment within the portal use PowerShell as your CLI doesn't matter it's only gonna grade you on if you got the task done so if the task was go deploy a VM the the script on the backend only checks to make sure that VM was deployed doesn't care how you got there from a scoring perspective all of the exams have a passing score of 700 doesn't mean that it's 70% again some some items are worth or some questions are worth more points than others and so that ranges from zero to thousand thousand being perfect and so the the cut score or what what that seven hundred really means is determined during him development and during beta based on the the difficulty of of the questions that wind up on the exam and and the audience taking again so again there there's no points deducted for for any wrong answers do guess some questions can't be skipped so so always answer a question before you move on so for those that haven't taken an exam before the the structure of a question is there's normally always fairly simple there's no more except for the case studies there's no more no paragraphs and paragraphs of information before you're presented presented a question so first you're given an environment or a scenario your developer you're an administrator you're trying to do something and then you're given some type of problem or requirement so an application needs to be able to scale an application needs security to block certain ports and then a goal statement so you need to deploy the app you need to configure the app you need to meet the security requirements and then the final part is just what should you do what should you create all of the all of the exam questions on both of these exams follow the same structure so they're all meant to be straightforward easy to read easy to understand so again if something's not pleased to provide those comments so now we'll get into the actual what we call the objective domain or the OD for for this exam for 301 so this is broken up into six major buckets they're all fairly equal so unlike the the 300 exam for those of you that were in that prep session where we've got three three more important categories and others these are these are all fairly equal and fairly important based on the survey that went out so the first bucket of information is determining workload requirements then we get into identity and security we'll look at Data Platform business continuity strategy for design how we're actually designing for deploying a solution migrating a solution integrating that maybe with different authentication options and then the infrastructure behind a solution and so each of these major buckets have individual objectives beneath them as to what the topics are so as anyone looked at on the website it's called skills measured so does anyone looked at an exam page and look through the list of of what we call skills measured on the website okay so I highly suggest you you look through that list this is the same list I've pulled it from the website but this is really what's gonna help you study for for passing the exam because when we look at this and think okay optimized consumption strategy I mean what does that mean what are the things that we can do behind that and so that's where you'd want to go in and look at the documentation okay what what tools do we have can we use as your adviser to to maybe help optimize is it going to recommend deploying a solution differently deploying a VM differently what tools do we have at our disposal at our disposal to optimize a consumption strategy that's just an example so when we think about workload requirements one thing that comes up a lot is is patterns so this is just a definition of software divine pattern from Wikipedia but ideally and when we think about solutions in the cloud we want to make sure they're reusable we want to make sure that it's not hard-coded into our solution we want to make sure it's agile and so from that perspective in answer how can we do that that would be primarily with arm templates and taking a DevOps approach to deploying a solution so even if you're if you're only planning on deploying a few VMs initially that might always grow so how can we make sure that we do this in a modular approach that we can repeat it maybe we decide later we need redundancy we're gonna deploy the same configuration in another region so if we if we have arm templates to do that then we can make sure that we have certain patterns and that our deployments are the same so from an azure and a Microsoft perspective what are the things there that allow us to do that so we have a foundation on github that allows us to have different templates there's a variety there's hundreds of different templates that you can download from from github to start a deployment whether it's just VMs whether it's an app gateway load balancer whatever technology you plan on designing and using for your solution so when looking at as your resource manager again this provides a consistent deployment so if we need to deploy ten VMs 100 VMs a thousand of VMs they can all be configured exactly the same way it supports grouping of resources so we can group together the the network behind that VM whatever storage requirements allow us to use role based access control to be able to provide permissions and restrict actions the objects within that within that resource group if the Silla Tate's our infrastructure is code so from a DevOps approach again if we want to to use arm templates or use automation beyond just deployment there the actual configuration and ongoing maintenance of those VMs we can do that and so the objects within that are called or called objects within the resource manager so these are all the instances of of individual pieces so even down to a network card on a VM is a resource object and so you can again manage permissions manage instances create templates and configure or write in the JSON or modify the JSON and that template to do what you want it to do and when you need it to do that so arm templates again are JSON you can deploy that from visual studio you can reference these in PowerShell the CLI the azure portal if you already have them maybe you have your own repository and github you can deploy them straight from git or use any of the templates that are provided to you already so that simplifies the orchestration it allows you to have restrictions or dependencies to make sure that maybe a load balancer is deployed before you create an object behind it we need the load balancer before we create a traffic manager profile some other restriction like that and then we move on to the next bucket of information so when we talk about designing for identity and security what are the one of the topics that we need to be aware of from a design perspective so we need to be able to manage identities we need to determine how users are going to authenticate to an app or a resource or something we've deployed we have to figure out if they're authorized so not only are they who they say they are when they log in but then once we've once we've authenticated them what do they have permission to and then what of our what are our risks associated with that how could we mitigate risks and then what is the monitoring strategy once we have all of that deployed so of course the the basis for that from an azure perspective is Azure ad so that's our cloud-based directory it's the identity management service with an azure so this has directory services governance access management it's the basis for for our back we can identify users and and manage access to resources resource providers all of that within Azure ad we can also integrate that with an on-prem ad if we need to so we can have multi-factor authentication on Prem with mobile devices we can Fedder eight we can have single sign-on with pass-through authentication and we can synchronize passwords or have password write back as well so some of the authentication strategies you might want to use the ad connect if you have on-prem ad already so this supports a wide range of different synchronization topologies you have multiple ad forests you can install this on any Windows server in your Active Directory environment connected directly to a domain controller that you have on Prem can either use the the sequel server that's built in have separate sequel server to hold all that information and allow a two-way synchronization of any accounts that you create on Prem or any accounts that you create that are that are cloud accounts and didn't be able to use those on Prem as well there's also a couple other options is the the b2b and b2c options so if you want to federate to another organization or a partner you can use b2b connectivity there to allow partners to access the resources and the applications that you have an azure and so then you can use local azure ad groups support those the the credentials and the user accounts that are in that other organization and then manage everything is managed by them but you're allowing them to access your resources there's also the the b2c connectivity so that's giving you the ability to allow you consumer user accounts so he's like Facebook Google Twitter you can allow those authenticated resources to then maybe access an application or resource that you have that you've deployed within azor there's also a managed 80 domain service within adjure so you can have domain join group policies the same chrome roastin TLM that you could have on prem with in Azure so that's just essentially two domain controllers in an azure subscription it uses the the azure ad tenant that's associated with that obscure that subscription and eliminates any requirements for for any type of hybrid connectivity you know it's in essence its own ad Forest at that point running with measure the third bucket of information on the exam is Data Platform solutions so this revolves around data management data protection designing and document how data can flow in and out of an application or a resource within Azure and then again the the monitoring strategy so when you're thinking about studying for the exam and what you need to prepare for these are these are the ideas that you would want to think of for a good 15 to 20 percent of the exam so some more examples of that would be the storage perspective there's blob storage so you can have files blobs and disks different interfaces different suggested uses depending on the application so again this is a design exam so you may get a case study you may get a scenario well we need to have streaming and random access for an application whether the app has a lot of random reads what's the the best storage type to use for that application and so then in that case you might use blob storage as the as the answer another storage component to be aware of is as your files so this is SMB file shares SMB 3.0 you can have an azure storage account associated with that can have an unlimited number of shares so these are just regular SMB shares as you would have on prim you can support files up to a terabyte and so that simplifies migrating a lot of on-prem applications that might have some other requirement to access just a UNC path or require file share as part of that application there's also as your file sync so if you need a method of migrating that on-prem file share to the cloud you can use the storage file sync service and that service will synchronize the the files that you specify provide centralized storage and then move that data up to up to Azure if you need an on-prem storage array for that storage you can use store simple so this is still as your base but it provides a storage array locally on prim for you and then replicates that data to an Azure storage account has different management tools that are web-based it centralize all of that you can still use PowerShell if you want or used to there's a store simple MMC snap-in as well so some of the benefits of doing that is that it integrates really easily with Azure as well as on-prem you know it's just another storage device it reduces some of your storage costs you can choose how you want to replicate that if it's just gonna be maybe archive storage and azure it simplifies your storage management it puts everything in one place for you and then of course improves disaster recovery by by replicating the storage that you do have on Prem up to Azure store simple also supports data tearing so that hot and warm data can be stored locally on that device so it's kind of like caching caching that data locally on prim and then any cold data that you have an access for a while that's just sitting there using using your local storage you can then move that up to Azure so that you know you're not using your storage space and it'll be cheaper overall for your solution so the usage of that data is constantly evaluated constantly monitored and then when we do decide to move the data that it's not being used that much anymore before we do that it's duplicated compressed and encrypted so that it's encrypted in transit and then when it gets to a sure it's also encrypted at rest so then the next section is designing a business continuity strategy so here we have to talk about or or think about how our our design is going to be how it's gonna be highly available if we have any site recovery expects to be familiar with what our recovery strategy is may be for individual workloads and then if we have any data archiving requirements or any other compliance requirements for keeping data for for an extended period of time so the first thing to think of from an asthma perspective to help with that is as your backup so just being able to protect that data whether it's on pram or whether it's already whether it's already in Azure so you can integrate that very easily with Azure site recovery and then have different tools to perform Recovery Options test the backups do a restore whether it be on trim or or an azure so some of the different backup options for a backup and restore for on prim this would be file share system state might require an agent if you want system state so that would be for windows backup jobs within the OS and then files and folders within either a non-print server or within VMs if we want to be able to backup different workloads we can do that for the the operating system the system state it does require a deployment at the azure backup server but then we can deploy agents to different computers and there they're going to be backed up and include that in the service and then finally the the backup and the restore so this is intended for a full vm backup we're gonna back up the entire vm it does require an extension to be part of the vm and then those backup jobs are run on the azure platform for the vm there are other there are other options for into an encryption you can monitor all of this with log analytics so if you want to install the agent and require a different pass Ferries you know ending any time that data is sent in transit or transferred across the network it uses TLS to encrypt that data and then you can look at all of the statistics and the amount of storage in the vault using log analytics you can also create app consistent backups for for VMS regardless of whether they're running Linux or Windows but by default Linux VMs are our crash consistent so there's extra configuration there you should be aware of that process is probably a easy exam question to do identify how you might need to configure that to make it at consistent finally for this topic their site recovery so this is disaster recovery for our on prima environments or for running hyper-v on prim or even vmware or physical servers we have a way to migrate those from on-prem to Azure so there's almost almost no downtime of course it depends on the application you can have application consistent failover between the on-prem environment and Azure as well as have the ability to failover to Azure and then fail back to on premium if necessary there's also a lift and shift migration tool if you're just looking to get rid of the physical servers and the the on-prem environment you can do a full system state replication machine replication from the on-prem environment to azure so this is a good scenario for dev and test environments there's no data loss there's nothing to worry about it's a complete migration from from the on on Prem VM to an azure VM so then one of the the smaller buckets on the exam talks about deployment and migration so here we have to think about different deployment methods how are we going to migrate what are different integration strategies we have with api's so again the the lift and shift is the most common approach this is the one that I've worked on the most so you can just take the pay-as-you-go pricing where if you have an EI or other type of agreement with Microsoft you can you can use Azure migrate and that'll give you a delivery and assessment tool so that you can see the workload that you have on prem and identify that too to be able to translate that to an azure vm or an azure resource that would match that workload and then optimize the cost for you provide cost estimates and and how suitable is that migration however that is for vmware only it's at the moment there's also another migration method so does anyone here still using classic VMs or classic portal and azure couple so there's a there's a few scripts that are available that you can run to be able to migrate that from classic to an ARM based model it's it's fairly easy fairly painless you can migrate the virtual machines storage accounts the virtual networks and then take advantage of not only the the different costing models that are available in aachen Resource Manager but all of the the new security or the different security options then you can use our back so you might want to consider migrating from from the classic is how about the classic cloud services is anyone using cloud services instead of app services all right so unfortunately there's no direct migration path from a cloud service in the classic portal so these are again the the new role for that is is app services so this is where you can have liberals and worker roles and so the recommended migration path is to to go with service fabric and convert those roles into micro services if you encounter that so then then the next thing to look at is an infrastructure strategy for the infrastructure behind whatever app or resource your to point so this could be storage compute networking and then the the monitoring aspects for for those resources once we have them deployed so from a storage perspective there is four primary types of storage we've got blob tables queues and files and to be able to use any of those of course you have to have a storage account so this is the the logical grouping that can be configured as a general purpose if you want to be 2 or as blob storage and so blob disks are available as block blobs page blobs for VHDs or append blobs tables are a non structured sequel service queues are for messaging and then files are just that for file storage we also have to worry about the from a design perspective the storage account security so by default there are two storage account keys that provide unlimited access to that storage account you can regenerate them on-demand if you want to and you can change those values without affecting the access to storage as you need another way to do that is to use shared access signatures or sass policies so this allows you to have additional control over that storage account or the components within that storage account by creating a sass token and then you can use that token or when you're creating it you can specify different restrictions whether it be time-based whether it be permission based and so rather than specifying the restrictions on the resources specifically they didn't have that token and you can grant that either to a user to an applic however you want to use that token and so from a design and an exam perspective one thing to my to maybe keep in mind is that there are limit of five different policies on any type of container table Hugh files can only create up to five policies another storage component to be aware of are the disks underlying within that storage account so there's managed versus unmanaged disks does anyone using managed just currently okay so if you're not using managed Disco I highly recommend that you look into that for your own environment just because there's additional provisioning capabilities you don't have to create and manage different storage accounts you can convert between standard or premium there's a there's a lot of benefits for using managed towards accounts and so then from an exam perspectives we're thinking about questions and we might be presented with a scenario that we need to be able to use our back or we need to be able to use some other feature that is specific to managed disks and the the question is gonna ask how should we design the solution and then the answers might be managed versus unmanaged or creating a storage account yourself next topic is event hubs so how can we store some of the information that we're getting what is how can we use that data so event hubs gives you a platform to be able to take all of these events process them create actions do different things depending on what what the event came in with you can authenticate people with those sash tokens that we just talked about so that only certain applications or components can create an event and so this is your this is your front phone your front line for any event pipeline so whatever whatever role whatever alert the the method that you want or the action that you want after an event occurs you can start that in an event hub and then finally there is also um IOT hubs so this is bi-directional either device to cloud if you have IOT devices or cloud to device if you need to send a message back to a device it controls the message flow or you can configure those routing routing rules to determine the flow for IOT or that communication you also have a lot of different security aspects of that as well as gateway support for both the the field gateway how that's communicating in and the protocol gateway what what the protocol is that that IOT device might be using so that in a nutshell is the topics that are on the design exam so when we think again when we're thinking about questions and how to prepare for that and what what do we need to look for and be aware of before we go take this exam so as anyone been to the new Microsoft comm slash learn page okay about half so the the learn page has a bunch of step-by-step tutorials self-paced videos there's different options there there's hands-on learning knowledge assessments practice assessments different things that you can use self-paced environment to be able to help you pass this exam that would be that would be my first stop and looking for that because all of these all of these buckets have training courses and training available that directly relate to each of those topics or objectives there's also online courses the resources on things like EDX LinkedIn learning plural cite those courses give you self-paced videos and in content as well as the ability to use hands-on labs either in a managed subscription or in your own Azure subscription and then again the knowledge assessments from from places like measure up and other things then finally there's an instruction instructor led training where you can go through and either bundle or customize a course with any of those topics and have you know a three five day course deep dive however however you want it you can talk to a learning partner about creating a class that allows you to either pass this exam maybe you combine them together you can take topics from the the 300 exam and 301 exam and and do a one-week cram session if you want to do it with a learning partner other resources so again I asked earlier for earlier if anyone had been to the exam page if you have not I really recommend that you go and look at the look at the specific exam page there's a section about half way down that's called skills measured it's the full list it's got even more detail as to the topics that are covered on the exam so you can use this as a resource number one for any type of studying that you need to do you know if you're already comfortable and familiar with storage and compute and you want to spend more time on Io teen event hubs that will give you the list of everything that might be covered on the exam or that is covered on the exam and give you the you know the reference point for you as to what topics you need to spend more time on you can also join different study groups those are available on the same website practice tests externally will be available soon you can actually go to the immersion zone next to the the expo floor this week at ignite and take practice tests for for any of the new adjure exams they're not available downstairs okay and then the documentation so all all exam items when they're written have to have some type of authoritative resource and that's typically documentation I really really suggest if it's if it's not a feature you're familiar with at least go through and read the doc you read the first paragraph to be familiar with how that technology works before you go and sit the exam that'll be a good reference to at least make you comfortable and be aware of what the technology is before you go in and sit down and then get a question on on containers or logic apps or something maybe you haven't used yet so just some other suggestions you know while you're preparing for an exam I really really suggest that you go and just do something so all the exam questions on on all the exams are are typically action based so if we think of the exam structure or the question structure it's what should you do what should you create what should you recommend so you should be able to understand the technology and it doesn't matter how you got to that point whether it's through the portal through PowerShell through the CLI I would recommend you use each of those methods not only does it not only would help you study for that specific technology or that feature but then if for when you get a performance based item and it asks you to go deploy an app service you would be able to design that app service and do that and whichever way you're most comfortable with whether it's through the portal or through one of the command options and then again if it's not a feature that's easy to deploy if it's not something you're you're comfortable with doing at least go read about it write do the documentation sit through some of the the LinkedIn learning videos Pluralsight videos to be able to to make yourself comfortable with that before you go into the exam so again we've got supposed to have free practice tests we've also got the hands-on lab area so the lab area downstairs by the expo floor if there's a technology you want to get familiar with there's hundreds of labs that you can go and take at your own pace any time during the week if you take the exam this week is art they're also all exams of 50% off at ignite so the the certification booth is outside of Hall D so you can either go see other MC T's there or visit them at the the expert bar the learn booth on the expo floor or get more information on on the website there's also a list of other exam prep that are available so if you're interested in the 100 or the 200 exams or any of the Microsoft 365 exams there are different exam prep that you can either attend or watch the recording of afterwards so I suggest if you know if you're interested in that to do that and then we have time for Q&A so we've got three mics set up in this room you know if I'd like to come down and ask a question feel free be happy to help anyone that has any questions on on this exam or the certification path or Learning Path yeah night so the testing center here is outside of Hall D so it's down the hallway around 325 ish or 225 it's on level two around to around room 225 in the hallway but you mentioned we can take tests exams first and so there are practice exams in in the hands-on lab is it for certain exams only here as well yeah those are down in the immersion zone by the expo floor thank you sure firstly thank you secondly I would like to know this as a heads up not a question to you and the team the certification booking site is not working I've tried since yesterday so as you try to schedule an exam here and ignites enter the site keeps reloading and you're in a circle it's a it's a problem with the event Wi-Fi if you connect to any other hotspot there's also some surface devices available by the booth by the in Hall D or outside of all D that you can use yes you have to be on another Wi-Fi other than the conference Wi-Fi okay thank you other questions I mean it really just depends on your scenario they're both options are completely valid if you've already been studying for 535 like if you've invested a lot of time in that you've bought resources books any subscriptions you might be better prepared for that exam and it's not like that credential goes away or becomes invalid they're just retiring the exam you know you would still be as you're certified it's just the the previous version of the exam and then that would give you the ability to use the transition exam until March so it's personal preference if if you're starting new and you haven't invested any time or money into studying for 5:35 then just start with the new ones right if you're more comfortable with 5:35 you've already put time into that you know you might have you it could be a personal preference that maybe you feel like you've got a better chance to pass that and then take in a new test blind that's personal preference any other questions if you don't want to do it on the mic we've got some extra time I'm happy to stay and answer any any questions that anyone has please do to make sure to fill out the evaluations on the the MS events app the link there on the
