Hi everyone,
this topic has been opened because starting from 12 Oct 2017,
the exam 70-533 has been significantly modified by including a number of new subjects and revisiting the weights of each section.
I'm trying to pass the exam so this is the reason why I worked very hard to collect all the materials necessary to pass the latest version of the exam.
As you may know, this exam tends to be updated every 3-6 months, in general are slight changes.
From previous main changes in Nov 2016, exam has been extensively modified in this latest release.
Passing score is still 70/100, but the questions embrace a larger number of subjects and
you don't really know how many new questions you will meet until you sit for the exam.
Last but not least, the official Microsoft reference guide is out-of-date and doesn't cover the latest subjects (as expected).

The difficult part is that you have to focus on only relevant material to pass the exam, because the available documentation for azure is huge,
and there is no way to study all the documents (it might require years).
The best strategy is to cooperate and create the most valid reference guide to study for the exam,
starting from the latest blueprint and the links I've carefully collected for each topic.

Each subject is followed by a number of links related to it.

Although 50% of the topics can be easily found in other guides of other people, the new ones require a careful analysis, because you can't go in depth on each topic because this means studying thousands of pages (and most of the time a subject is also part of 70-532 and/or 70-534 exams). You have to be strictly focused of the blueprint.

So, I'm asking you guys to collaborate to streamline this list and get the essential documents for each topic in order to learn enough and pass the exam.

For example, I would like to start from the following sections (not from the beginning).

Can someone suggest if are there links that are not necessary and/or can be replaced with some other valuable resource?

Regards
