How I passed the Microsoft AI-900 Certification

After about a month of on and off studying for the AI-900 exam, I finally took it and passed. This was the first of the many Microsoft certifications I am able to test for, for free (link below to my blog post). Just to put it out there, I have had training in the past on Artificial Intelligence while working on my post-graduate degree, so the AI concepts were a refresher to me. I mostly studied the features of Microsoft Azure as it pertained to AI. 


The first thing I did was Downloaded the outline and took the free Learning Path from the Microsoft Website. I took reviewed the learning path on my personal laptop, so I don't know how well it will work if you only have a mobile device. The learning path does have you follow along as you build no-code AI processes on Microsoft Azure. It's definitely good to go through it, but I don't think it's necessarily needed to pass the exam. 


While commuting to work and while I was working, there were a few AI-900 Study Guide Youtube videos I listened to. My favorites are below.

I did the previous tasks off and on over the course of about a month.

A couple of days prior to taking my scheduled exam I took a couple of practice exams to get myself a little more comfortable. 


So, in the end, I now have my first Microsoft Certification of many I plan to obtain and it cost me nothing but my time. I hope this information is helpful to anyone trying to go for exams and I'll be sure to post another "How I passed ...", when I take my next IT certification. 


Another resource that I found, but didn't use.

I work in Big Data, Love playing video games, and often go to conventions. I mainly post free or inexpensive training and about video games.

It's becoming more and more necessary for persons in many aspects of a business to have some knowledge of programming. I know since working in Data the two languages I've been asked to learn are R and Python. I've since learned those languages, but I continue to train myself in other techniques using various online training. There is a wide range of free to paid training online, I'll be posting a few that I use.
