Resources I used

  • Microsoft Learning path
    I used it for steps about how to interact with azure.
    I recommend to sign up in Azure for Student to apply those steps.
    In general their Learning path is very good and almost covers everything.

  • 200 Practice Questions For Azure AI-900 Fundamentals Exam
    You can use it to summarize and make sure that you cover all about the theoretical part. For me I loved the way of putting those info in the form of questions and answers, it was very helpful for me and make the process of recall very easy.

  • Training Exams and examples
    I used this test and that video for testing myself.
    Also you can see a real exam from here.

It took me three days for preparing for the Exam. If you study well, you wouldn't have any problem in passing the exam.
Good luck!

Well documented. I just cleared the exam this morning. Free 200 practice questions that you mentioned is pretty outdated for todays syllabus :(. Additionally I also did practice tests from Skillcertpro ( which helped passing with 940. Skillcertpro exam questions are so close to main exam, as I got nearly 80% from their sets. Make sure read the explanations and you're good to go...
