Free Microsoft Certification exams at Microsoft Ignite 2019
Today I have discovered a Microsoft Ignite perk I didn’t know existed before: You can get FREE certification exams at Microsoft Ignite 2019! Fully , 100% Free exams, saving you between 99$ USD to 165$ USD per exam! So far, the only restriction that I have seen is that this only applies to the new role based exams (MS-xxx, AZ-xxx, MD-xxx, MB-xxx) and not the old exams (70-xxx), so this can be the perfect way for you to get Microsoft Certified before the end of the year! Let’s look at how you can get those free exams! Make sure to read until the end for some extra tips!
Quick Update: If you are attending Microsoft Ignite The Tour and not Orlando, check out my updated blog post on that topic: Microsoft Extends Free Certification Exams to Microsoft Ignite the Tour
