VCP How to Set up at Home In my other recent blog post I’ve spoken about how to pass your VCP and some revision tips. In this post, I want to discuss actually sitting the exam itself. Due to the current pandemic, Pearson Vue are currently allowing you to take your VCP test at home, instead of going into a test centre. In my opinion, this can be incredibly beneficial as it reduces the impact… Read More »VCP How to Set up at Home

Exam 70-534 Architecting Microsoft Azure Solutions

Azure Exam 70-534

Following the path I’ve been taking to validate my Azure skills to it’s natural conclusion, I recently took and passed the Architecting Microsoft Azure Solutions exam 70-534.  Traditionally I allow myself a short period of revision. With this exam, I felt confident and with the massed array of Azure possibilities for the exam to call upon, I wasn’t too sure how useful revision over experience might be.  So again in hope of passing more than expectation, I decided to sit the exam – if nothing else I would learn where I needed to focus more effort.  I’ve been working as an architect and have spent much of my career infrastructure focused.  This proved to be a good combination for the infrastructure exam and I was banking on it being a good combination here as well.Read More »Exam 70-534 Architecting Microsoft Azure Solutions

Exam 70-532 Developing Microsoft Azure Solutions

Azure Exam 70-532

Continuing the path I’ve been taking to validate my Azure skills, I recently took and passed the Developing Microsoft Azure Solutions exam 70-532.  After a very short period of revision, to plug some of the gaps in my knowledge, I felt confident enough to sit the exam, in hope more than expectation of passing.  I say that because I’m not primarily a developer, the past 18 months I’ve been working as an architect and prior to that I was very heavily infrastructure focused.  Whilst that was a good combination for the infrastructure exam, I wasn’t going to assume it would be so good here!Read More »Exam 70-532 Developing Microsoft Azure Solutions

TOGAF Exam

I get really nervous taking exams.  I never feel prepared enough to sit the exam and unless I have a hard deadline I will always procrastinate and avoid revising. That was part of my strategy for booking TOGAF with just two weeks of revision time.  Nothing seems to focus my mind more than a tight dealing and a bit of pressure.

So drum roll please….Read More »TOGAF Exams!
