Beginning of the journey
His learning journey began 5 years ago when he was working as Microsoft SharePoint Developer. He was always excited about learning, solving problems, and facing complex challenges and soon realized that Microsoft certifications can help him on this journey. With this never-ending quest to learn, he started preparing for his first certification. It took around 3 months for him to complete his first certification. From then on, there was no looking back.
According to Jeffin, ” One must commit to continuous learning & upskilling, keep the enthusiasm alive and focus on the value it can bring in can keep you on the learning track”
He outlined his strategy for others who want to give it a try:
- Pick a certification path and exam strategy. Review the many certifications on the official Microsoft Certifications site.
- Schedule the exam first, before starting the course itself. Putting the test out there motivates anyone to meet the deadline.
- Start Doing- Get learning.
- Study Resources Galore. Start with the Overview, Concept, and Tutorial Sections of each service Microsoft Learn.
- Schedule a block time every day to study. For e.g.; book a 5 am-9 am slot every day of the week. and then fill the open gaps of the day. (He sometimes put in 6+ hours a day!)
- Practice tests can help. Go in practice mode and read through the answer documentation.
- Don’t be afraid to fail. Go in and take it. You will fail a couple of times, but don’t give up.
