AZ-700 Exam Completed with Feedback and Notes

As I have recently passed the AZ-700 I want to provide me feedback to the community on the exam and process. As well as to give you an insight on what you can expect with the AZ-700 to help you study and prepare. By completing this exam you will become a Microsoft Certified Azure Network Engineer Associate.

My AZ-700 Exam Feedback

I took my exam early in the morning as usual, around 5am to be exact. There was no queue for the check in process and from the point of checking in I had started the exam after a couple of minutes. 

My exam had 54 questions and was 100 minutes in length which is fairly standard. I have recently complete Azure exams which has either less or more questions. 

As you can expect the exam featured heavily around the network features within the Azure platform. There was very little involvement in Windows Server networking, which you would probably expect to deal with in some capacity, with many networks being in a hybrid configuration, but it was not included. You can be sure that you will be asked questions on private DNS zone, express routes, route tables, security groups, some ports and protocols, Azure Front Door and Hub/spoke networks. If you are to take anything away from this post study up in those areas. Also study up on private access to Azure Endpoints, I feel that was somewhat heavy in content from my question pool.

Overall the exam covered most of the topics listed in the skills outline. With scenarios ranging from settings up new environment, modifying existing environments and troubleshooting network issues with Azure resources.

The questioning is how you can expected, the standard style of formatting, with some Yes/No, drag drop and scenario based questions thrown in. I completed by exam in just over 45 minutes.

AZ-700 Exam Study Guide

Personally, I studied for a while on the AZ-700 exam. It wasn’t that I wasn’t confident in myself. It is just that networking is my passion and if I did fail, it would be have been a mental blow to me. 

Before looking deep into the skills outline, I put some time aside to sit down and work through the Microsoft Learn module here. I didn’t do it all in one go, but instead over the course of a few mornings and evenings. It helped, but it is not perfect…

Following that, I then went deep into the skills outline, exporting the line items to excel and narrowing down them services that I could do with some improvement on.

Lastly finishing off with a full Lord of the Rings film length study cram by John Savill.


Overall the AZ-700 was a tough exam, as with most, there was a few head scratching and what if moments, but I am glad I passed.
