>> Hey everybody, and welcome
00:00
to one of the last lectures of this course.
00:00
Honestly, if you're watching this and
00:00
you've watched every single lecture
00:00
up until this point, you're amazing.
00:00
I'm just going to flirt out and say,
00:00
that is awesome, you've really proven yourself,
00:00
you've dedicated yourself to
00:00
finishing this course up to completion.
00:00
I hope that you found the lectures helpful.
00:00
I hope that you found the labs helpful.
00:00
I also really, really hope that you've taken
00:00
the time to familiarize yourself
00:00
>> with the documentation,
00:00
>> with the various concepts that are provided by Azure.
00:00
Because these things are going to be absolutely
00:00
fundamental and instrumental to your success.
00:00
Not only passing the AZ 104 exam,
00:00
but being a successful cloud engineer.
00:00
In this lecture, we're going to walk through
00:00
the process of scheduling the AZ 104 exam.
00:00
It should be super easy and relatively short.
00:00
But we want to make sure that we take
00:00
this exam because we want to
00:00
show the world what you've done.
00:00
You deserve it, you've put in
00:00
the hard work and you deserve to be recognized for it.
00:00
Having a certification is one of the best ways to
00:00
show the world that you know what you
00:00
know and that you deserve the recognition,
00:00
you deserve the pay, you deserve the promotion,
00:00
you deserve everything that you want because of that.
00:00
Let's go ahead and dive into this process.
00:00
As you can see here, I am on Microsoft's website.
00:00
I went to docs.microsoft.com.
00:00
Now, I'm going to add this link into
00:00
the little description to the side of this video.
00:00
Honestly, you can click that
00:00
or you can just go to Google and search,
00:00
Microsoft AZ-104 and it'll take you to this link.
00:00
It's actually one of the first links that you'll
00:00
find on the Google search.
00:00
We're just going to scroll down here.
00:00
Obviously one of the first things we
00:00
see is schedule exam,
00:00
so we can schedule it with Pearson VUE.
00:00
We're actually recording this in early to mid 2021.
00:00
They have this special promotion where if you were
00:00
impacted by COVID-19 by any means,
00:00
you can learn a little bit more about this,
00:00
but you can actually schedule it for
00:00
only 15 US dollars which is incredible.
00:00
Like I said, if you want to learn more about
00:00
that program or whatever they're offering here,
00:00
you can just click this link
00:00
>> and go there and learn more.
00:00
>> But for everybody else,
00:00
we're just going to go ahead and schedule this as
00:00
a standard individual because this will
00:00
stay even after the COVID program shuts
00:00
down if it ever does, or when it does.
00:00
Let's go ahead and move forward with Pearson.
00:00
First thing that we're going to have to do is
00:00
login to our Microsoft account.
00:00
If you do not have
00:00
a Microsoft account, go ahead and create one.
00:00
It's free, it's super easy.
00:00
It only takes a few more minutes for you to do.
00:00
Well, go ahead and set that up.
00:00
I'm actually going to pause this video and jump into
00:00
the other side where I'll be already authenticated.
00:00
Now we're in the portal,
00:00
now we have already authenticated.
00:00
Hopefully, you went ahead
00:00
and jumped through that process.
00:00
You've already created your account so you can
00:00
go forward and schedule your exam.
00:00
We're going to go ahead and type in our information
00:00
here so I can enter mine.
00:00
Let's say I am an IT manager.
00:00
I can enter my address down here,
00:00
which I will leave blank for now,
00:00
but you want to enter your address.
00:00
All right, everybody, we're going to go ahead
00:00
and fill out all this information.
00:00
We have to fill the sensitive information out.
00:00
Then we're going to click Save & Continue down here.
00:00
Once you have done that,
00:00
you want to make sure that you've checked
00:00
the boxes and select, Save & Continue.
00:00
Once you have gone through that process of
00:00
filling out all your personal information,
00:00
it's going to navigate us over to Pearson VUE,
00:00
which is going to redirect server here.
00:00
You're going to see this screen
00:00
or one very similar to this.
00:00
The first question that they're going to ask is,
00:00
how do you want to take your exam?
00:00
Now, once upon a time,
00:00
we had to take our exam at a local testing center,
00:00
but because of what happened
00:00
>> across the world with COVID,
00:00
>> a lot of organizations,
00:00
including Microsoft decided they were going to allow
00:00
everybody to take their exams
00:00
online from home or at their office.
00:00
We're going to go ahead and schedule it like that.
00:00
Here are some quick information bits
00:00
that you need to learn,
00:00
or at least to know about.
00:00
You need to verify that you have
00:00
computer and Internet connection.
00:00
That's pretty common sense in my opinion,
00:00
but we want to make sure that we have that.
00:00
We also want to make sure that we test it to
00:00
make sure that we meet the minimum requirements.
00:00
Usually it takes five minutes to run
00:00
that test and it's just going to basically
00:00
just scan your computer
00:00
and your Internet to make sure that your
00:00
connection's fast enough to
00:00
keep that consistent proctoring.
00:00
You're going to have somebody that's
00:00
actually going to watch
00:00
you take your exam to ensure
00:00
that you're staying true
00:00
and honest as you take your exam.
00:00
We're going to go ahead and select
00:00
Online from my home and office.
00:00
I'll press Next.
00:00
Here we've got a couple brief agreements
00:00
and privacy rules and just things that we want to make
00:00
sure that we check
00:00
and just to notify Microsoft
00:00
>> that we are staying honest.
00:00
>> Here for our preferred language
00:00
for the exam we have four options.
00:00
We have Chinese simplified,
00:00
English, Japanese, and Korean.
00:00
I'm going to select English and select Next.
00:00
What is the language you prefer the proctor to speak?
00:00
Let's also say English there.
00:00
Here we can select an appointment.
00:00
I'm going to choose
00:00
April 28th because that's my birthday.
00:00
No, I'm not actually going to
00:00
take the exam on my birthday,
00:00
but I'm just giving you
00:00
an example of how this process works.
00:00
I'm going to select my time zones.
00:00
Say yes, they got it right,
00:00
I am in the New York Time zone,
00:00
I'm in the Eastern time zone.
00:00
I'm going to select, let's see here,
00:00
how about 1:30 PM in the afternoon?
00:00
Looks like we're okay there.
00:00
It's confirmed. Here's our price,
00:00
165 US dollars for me here in the United States.
00:00
If we need to, we can select to purchase
00:00
additional educational materials to help us prepare.
00:00
But we did a good job studying.
00:00
We did all of the labs,
00:00
we listened to all the lectures,
00:00
and we read a lot of
00:00
the additional information out there.
00:00
I think we're good to go. We're going to go ahead
00:00
and schedule this exam.
00:00
We're going to scroll down here,
00:00
so we have our total due.
00:00
We're going to select this yellow button at
00:00
the bottom right-hand corner
00:00
that says Proceed to Checkout.
00:00
Now, we have a Microsoft overlay that we
00:00
have to just scroll down and accept,
00:00
it just has some terms to agree to. Here we go.
00:00
Now, we can go ahead and enter in
00:00
our credit card information and
00:00
our billing information right there. Here we go.
00:00
We can enter American Express,
00:00
MasterCard, Visa, and JCB.
00:00
I'm actually not familiar with JCB,
00:00
but these are our options here.
00:00
We can then scroll down.
00:00
Now that you have filled out all this information,
00:00
you're going to press Next,
00:00
and then it'll take you to
00:00
the final screen where you're going to select Confirm.
00:00
Here we are at the ends of our order here for the exam.
00:00
Now that you've gone ahead and you've
00:00
entered in all your payment information,
00:00
you've entered in all your personal information,
00:00
we're going to get ahead with this screen.
00:00
Now that we're here,
00:00
we're going to go ahead and scroll down to the bottom
00:00
and you're going to select Submit Order.
00:00
Once you hit that,
00:00
you'll get an e-mail confirmation code
00:00
confirming that you have scheduled for your exam.
00:00
It'll give you instructions on what you need to do next
00:00
to prepare for the exam with the proctor,
00:00
whatever clients or proctoring software
00:00
you're going to have to install on
00:00
your local computer so that they
00:00
can monitor you as you take your exam.
00:00
That same software is actually what you're
00:00
going to be using to take the exam,
00:00
like it's going to be in the exam
00:00
or in that piece of software the exam will be,
00:00
so go ahead and read those
00:00
>> instructions very thoroughly.
00:00
>> But that's all you need to
00:00
know in order to take your exam.
00:00
I hope you found this helpful.
00:00
You're going to do awesome because you worked
00:00
really hard to prepare for this test.
00:00
I believe in you. I want to make
00:00
sure that when you have passed,
00:00
be sure to shout out to me,
00:00
ping me on social media.
00:00
I'll have my social media handles
00:00
linked within this course so you can find me.
00:00
Let me know and I will share it with
00:00
my network to let everybody know
00:00
that you were successful.
00:00
That you worked hard and you earned it.
00:00
Good luck and I can't wait to hear from you.
