Preparing for the Microsoft Azure 70-535 Exam

(Update) The Azure 70-535 exam was retired on December 31, 2018, and it was replaced by the AZ-300 and AZ-301 exams. To prepare for these exams, we recommend the Cloud Academy’s AZ-300 Exam Preparation: Technologies for Microsoft Azure Architects and the AZ-301 Exam Preparation: Designing a Microsoft Azure Architecture Learning Path.


The credibility of Microsoft Azure continues to grow in the first quarter of 2018 with an increasing number of enterprises migrating their workloads, resulting in a jump for Azure from 10% to 13% in market share. Most organizations will find that simply “lifting and shifting” applications and data to Azure is not as simple as it seems, since Microsoft offers a variety of cloud services serving numerous scenarios.

What’s on the 70-535 Microsoft Solutions Exam?

With the complexities and scenarios of cloud migration in mind, Microsoft recently released the 70-535 Architecting Microsoft Azure Solutions exam, replacing the 70-534 exam, which wasn’t as focused on architecture. Consisting of 40-60 questions over a 150-minute test period, the exam covers:

  • Compute Infrastructure
  • Data Implementation
  • Networking Implementation
  • Security and Identity Solutions
  • Operations
  • Platform Solutions

Preparing for the Microsoft Azure 70-535 Exam
