Hello fellow Azure people!
I’m ready to tackle AZ-900/(And eventually AZ-500), with one issue: I don’t have access to Mac or Windows.
For my exams, due to the pandemic and location, it’s difficult for me to get an exam in real-life. (Especially AZ-500 as there are no locations in my country offering this certification currently.)
I can, however, run Windows on a virtual machine.
Would a full-screen VM be acceptable for the exam? Does anyone have experience with it?
If you plan to take an online-proctored exam, you will need proper video conf. capability, i.e. a functional webcam, microphone and speaker. It depends on the hypervisor you use, experience of using those peripheral devices may vary. If for any reason your hypervisor crashes, that will be a big issue.
If you’re owning a non-Windows computer that is capable enough to run a hypervisor for Windows VM, why don’t you just temporary spare a few dozens of GBs on your drive and install a copy of Windows onto? Then simply erase it from your computer after you completed the exam.
