AZ-301 Exam Prep: Additional Resources

Additional Resources

This short video gives you a list of some of the other resources you should review before taking the Microsoft AZ-301 exam.


Congratulations on making it all the way through this learning path. Note that this learning path is currently in preview, so we’re still adding courses to it. If you’re preparing to write the Microsoft AZ-301 exam, bear in mind that although we’ve covered all of the major topics in the exam guide, there are a few details that weren’t covered. I’ll list them for you and show you where you can learn more about them.

  • Some organizations use RADIUS for remote client authentication. To add two-step authentication to RADIUS, you can configure the Azure Multi-Factor Authentication Server to act as a RADIUS server.


To save you some typing, I put all of the links from this video in the transcript below.

  • When you use Azure Site Recovery to fail over from a primary site to Azure, there are a couple of options for how to handle the networking. The VMs in the failover network can either use the same IP addresses as the original VMs, or they can use new IP addresses. There are tradeoffs to consider when deciding between the two approaches.

  • Before you migrate applications and data to Azure, you need to check their compatibility with Azure services. For web applications, the Azure App Service migration assessment checks your application’s readiness to move to App Service.

  • For SQL Server databases, the Data Migration Assistant will check their compatibility with Azure SQL Database.

  • OAuth2 is a popular standard for authorizing access to web applications and APIs. To learn more about how the OAuth2 authorization flow works with Azure AD, have a look at this page.

  • The Azure Import/Export service lets you import large amounts of data into either Azure Storage or Azure Files by shipping physical disks to Microsoft. You can also export data from either of those services to physical disks that are then shipped to you. Here’s a link to the product page for it.

  • If you don’t want to supply your own disk drives when using the Import/Export service, then you can use a Microsoft-owned Azure Data Box appliance.

I also recommend that you get more hands-on experience with Azure, which will help reinforce what you’ve learned.

If you have any questions or comments, please let us know.

Thanks and good luck on the exam!
