This has been updated to reflect the changes since March 11th, 2019.

Below you will find a list of what is going to be tested in the new AZ-300 Microsoft Azure Architect Technologies exam and a link to a resource that I think will help you learn and pass the exam. It is a work in progress at the moment and I will keep updating it. If you do find a link that is not working, or I have linked to the wrong resource. Please let me know. Also if you would like to help fill in the blanks please leave a comment below.

At Microsoft Ignite, they had a session on this Exam. It is worth the watch.

I’m Richard Hooper aka Pixel Robots. I started this blog in 2016 for a couple reasons. The first reason was basically just a place for me to store my step by step guides, troubleshooting guides and just plain ideas about being a sysadmin. The second reason was to share what I have learned and found out with other people like me. Hopefully, you can find something useful on the site.

Hi Richard, In today’s world who does all so much for others to learn from all what you have created that too for free. Thanks much for all your time and energy you have spent creating these resources and sharing with us for our learning.

I’m planning to learn more about azure technology as I’m into SAP administration since 12+ years and now want to make sure I’m on top of the latest technology/ platform

Regards

At first i figured this was going to be another scam / sales site for test dumps.
Wow what a great site this turned out to be…probably the first legitimate study resource i have found online.
Thank you for the long hours spent collecting, organizing and posting the info for the Azure AZ300 exam!

    Pixel Robots. · September 29, 2018 at 7:37 am

    Thanks for the kind words.

Sandip · October 1, 2018 at 10:52 am

Great Very Useful

Ram · October 2, 2018 at 6:19 pm

Thanks for the great effort to collect and share the resources with everyone. But unfortunately google doesnt list this page right on top, I had to scroll a couple of pages to get here. May be its a treasure 🙂

    Pixel Robots. · October 2, 2018 at 6:46 pm

    Thanks for the kind words.

      Ram · October 3, 2018 at 1:18 am

      WC. One more question, I do not have any experience with Azure, but only with .NET. Can I still have a crack at this exam by just knowing the concepts?? How hard will be the learning curve??

        Pixel Robots. · October 3, 2018 at 8:11 am

        If I was you and did not have much experience with Azure I would have a look at https://microsoft.com/learn and the Azure fundamentals course they have. It’s free. Then as you seem to be a Developer I would look at doing the new Azure Developer certification. It consists of two exams the AZ-200 and AZ-201. the Microsoft Learn site should also have some course to help with that too.

        I hope that helps. Let me know if you have any more questions.

Ram · October 2, 2018 at 6:20 pm

Vincent · October 5, 2018 at 9:29 pm

Hi Richard, thanks for this. Could you have another article for the az-301 as well please?

    Pixel Robots. · October 5, 2018 at 9:48 pm

    I am working on it. I will try and get it up this weekend or early next week. Keep an eye out for it.

      Vincent · October 7, 2018 at 1:03 pm

      Perfect. Thank you!

Sudeep · October 23, 2018 at 9:29 pm

This was an excellent effort. Thank you for taking the time and effort to pull this together.

I have couple of comments. Will post them one by one as I go through.
http://bit.ly/2y0rVad link seems to be old. The command shown in the video is no longer correct. I think the URL https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/azure-resource-manager/resource-group-template-deploy or any other sub URLs in that section should be used instead of the video

    Pixel Robots. · October 23, 2018 at 9:32 pm

    Thanks. I will get this link updated.

Kode · November 16, 2018 at 1:11 am

Hello Pixel
Thanks a lot for putting this together. It will be of great help in my preparation for the AZ-300 exam.
I’ve noticed a small typo in the below section. The percentage range should read 25-30%. You have it as 25-13%
Deploy and Configure Infrastructure (25-13%)

    Pixel Robots. · November 16, 2018 at 12:46 pm

    Thanks. That’s been fixed.

krishna · December 3, 2018 at 1:18 pm

Hi Richard are you also working on uploading the AZ301 Content as well that would be very helpful.

    Pixel Robots. · December 3, 2018 at 2:10 pm

    Yes, I am slowly trying to update both the az-300 and az-301.

      krishna · December 3, 2018 at 3:34 pm

Brett · January 31, 2019 at 10:13 pm

I can’t thank you enough for putting this all together. I used this as my primary study guide, and just passed the exam. There is no way on Earth I would have done so without this. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

    Pixel Robots. · January 31, 2019 at 10:17 pm

    Congratulations! Thank you for the kind words. I am happy you passed the exam. Onto the AZ-301 now?

Pier · February 20, 2019 at 8:11 pm

This is what i am looking for! Thanks for collecting so much data. This will really help me with studying for the exam.

Shabir · March 17, 2019 at 7:47 am

Hi, thank you so much for compiling such extensive guide for Az-300, I am using this as my primary guide for Az-300 preparation. I was just looking at Develop for Cloud section and its look like you havent added links for Azure Storage portion in that section. As per Microsoft AZ-300 certification details, in Section of Develop for Clout there are these bullet points as well 1 Develop solutions that use Cosmos DB storage, 2 Develop solutions that use a relational database. Can you please help me regarding this.

    Pixel Robots. · March 20, 2019 at 11:09 am

    Hello, I will be updating the article soon to reflect the changes.

Archimedes · March 20, 2019 at 2:24 pm

I work for Microsoft. This page is much much better than any of the study resources available internally to Microsoft employees. Thank you Pixel Robots.

    Pixel Robots. · March 20, 2019 at 2:29 pm

    Thanks for the kind words.

      Archimedes · March 22, 2019 at 11:17 pm

      Just completed the exam and managed to pass. Your study guide was my main reading material. Thanks a ton. There are a few links that need to be fixed though. For instance, “Configure application gateway and load balancing rules” is leading to Azure MFA page.

krishna · March 28, 2019 at 11:02 am

Missing Develop solutions that use Cosmos DB storage and Develop solutions that use a relational database sections under “Develop for the Cloud and Azure storage.

    Pixel Robots. · March 28, 2019 at 11:40 am

    Thanks. I have updated the guide now.

      Darren · April 21, 2019 at 8:27 am

      Really appreciate the time consuming effort you’ve put into providing this for the Azure community. Well done and thank you.

Shabir · April 11, 2019 at 8:29 am

Hi thanks for updating study resources. there are couple of wrong links i think. Configure Application gateway and Load Balancing links is showing Configure Azure Multi-Factor Authentication. And Manage Application Load Balancing link shows Fraud Alert page. Can you please fix these 🙂

Yashesh · August 20, 2019 at 7:39 pm

Hi Pixel,

Amazing !! Exactly what I was looking for. Thanks mate for all your help, this will help me to improve my knowledge
for AZ-300 exam. Time saver!! 🙂
