In this expert Microsoft MCSE: Cloud training, Ben Finkel prepares learners to design compute infrastructure, data and networking implementation, and security and identity solutions.
Microsoft retired the 70-535 exam in 2018, and replaced it with two exams: AZ-300 and AZ-301. While this course no longer maps to an active exam, it’s still a valuable resource for anyone studying for one of those exams — or cloud engineers who want to design public and hybrid cloud solutions using the Azure platform.
For anyone who manages Azure training, this Azure Architecting Solutions training can be used for 70-535 exam prep, on-boarding new cloud engineers, or as part of a team training plan.
