Take Beta Exam 70-537: Configuring and Operating a Hybrid Cloud with Microsoft Azure Stack

Liberty Munson (Microsoft)

Updated 2/2 and 2/8/2018 in red

Are you a service administrator, an Azure Stack operator, or infrastructure administrator who would like to offer Microsoft Azure Stack and provide cloud services to your end users or customers from within your own datacenter? If so, I have an exam for you!

We are opening up 300 beta seats for this beta exam (Exam 70-537:) . . . This means that starting January 29, 2018, you can register to take the exam for an 80% discount!! (Why beta exams are no longer free.) BUT . . . the seats are limited to a first-come, first-served basis. You must register and take the exam by March 15, 2018. We need you take the exam as soon as possible so we can leverage your comments, feedback, and exam data in our evaluation of the quality of the questions. The sooner you take the exam, the more likely it is that we will be able to use your feedback to make improvements to the exam. This is your chance to have a voice in the questions we include on the exam when it goes live. The rescore process starts on the day that exams go live and final scores are released approximately 10 days later. Follow Liberty Munson on Twitter (@libertymunson) for updates on when the rescore is complete. For questions about the timing of beta exam scoring and live exam release, see blog articles on The Path from Beta Exam to Live Exam and More Tips About Beta Exams.

To prepare for the exam, review our prep guide and practice the skills listed. One of the best ways to do this is to download the Azure Stack Development Kit (for free!) and deploy it in a virtual environment. Or, you can learn how to configure and operate an Azure Stack environment by attending the Microsoft Official course 20537A, which is delivered through one of our Learning Partners, or peruse the information on the Azure Stack Documentation page. Need other ideas? Check out my recent blog for ideas.

***Register for the exam and use code KDRBNP537DD when prompted for payment to take it with an 80% discount. (Why isn't the beta exam free anymore? Read this!) This is NOT a private access code. This code is only valid for exam dates on or before March 15, 2018.

Remember: There are a limited number of spots, so when they're gone, they're gone. You should also be aware that there are some country limitations where the beta code will not work (e.g., Turkey, Pakistan, India, China, Vietnam); you will not be able to take the beta exam in those countries.

Also, keep in mind that this exam is in beta, which means that you will not be scored immediately. You will receive your final score and passing status once the exam is live.

    Agree with @Mohammad Elkhleifat. This exam is not too hard because there are actually no tricky or ambiguous questions. However:

    * knowledge of PoSh commands is required (not only AzS Posh module)

    * knowledge of common task step-by-step sequences is required

    * I had a feeling that the exam covers all of the topics listed on the syllabus page, no one is missing. So if you skipped some topics, you'll have a hard time.
