Tips for Exam 70-462: make your labs using Azure trial

The complexity of certification exams is climbing up lately – up to the clouds. Gone are the days where a simple 3 VM lab was enough to try out every new tech release to newer versions of some product – SQL Server in this case.

Read it, do it. Practice, practice, practice. You can even try some PowerShell on this setup.

You can try this too: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/virtuallabs (I will do it myself later).
