Hi All,

Today i have passed Microsoft exam 70-532 "Developing Microsoft Azure Solutions". I have been studying for awhile. I have been implementing Azure solutions since 2008. The preparation was just a mater of getting the exam materials, focus on the exam topic areas, and do lots of readings!

I will provide all what you need to read, watch or most importantly is my study tips to pass the first exam in the Azure certifications for Developers and Architects.

A) What you need to read:

1) Topics covered in the exam:
