Once you register for a Microsoft certification exam, then you have to study. So where should you get your study materials? Your study materials will play a big part in your success or failure, so you need to choose wisely.
Direct From Microsoft
If you want to play it safe, then you can always get your study materials direct from Microsoft. This is a viable option, and Microsoft certainly provides enough resources that you could just use these materials as your study materials and pass the exam. You will still need hands-on training, but that is a necessary addition to any study materials you might get.
What about Other Vendors?
It is fine to get Microsoft certification exam study materials from other vendors, but you need to make sure that you get these materials from vendors that are reputable. If you don’t know who is providing your study materials, then you don’t know if those materials are any good. Do yourself a favor, and take the time to figure out who you’re getting your study materials from so that you will know if they can really help you succeed.
How Do You Know When You Have Enough Study Materials?
You will know that you have enough study materials when you have covered all the topics and subtopics detailed on the Microsoft web page for the exam that you are going to take. This is your main source of guidance for what you need to know. If your study materials can teach you what you need to know, then you have enough.
