Free Labs, courses and Second Shot for Microsoft Exams
09/01/2013 1 Comment
I’ve started to take a couple of Microsoft exams and I thought it would be good to share some handy information with you.
For those who want to take Microsoft exams, the promotion “Second Shot” is back and now it also brings some discounts when buying certification packs: http://www.microsoft.com/learning/en/us/second-shot.aspx
The idea is that you can take the exam again for free in case you fail.
For your labs, there is also a great news: You can build a whole lab infrastructure for free (90 days) in the cloud, allowing you to access it from everywhere.
With Windows Azure, you can subscribe for the free trial and create lots of virtual machines, including Windows and Linux OSes.
The VM configuration is not too bad, as shown in the next screenshot, and it’s enough to build a lab for almost all scenarios.
If you are interested in using Azure to build your labs, these 2 links show the step-by-step to create the virtual machines and even a SharePoint lab.
Another good news is the fact you can get heaps of free Microsoft training (lot’s of exam preparation ones) on Microsoft Virtual Academy, check it out:
I hope that helps, now… Studying Time!
