The Microsoft AZ-303 has questions on how to implement technologies while the AZ-304 exam tests the candidate’s ability to pick the best-suited technology for a given scenario. While the former includes questions based on customer requirements, the latter includes questions based on technical operations and their implementations. The Microsoft AZ-304 exam focuses on selecting solution implementations, capturing business needs using business objectives and real-world examples. On the contrary, the AZ-303 exam focuses on using those solutions to ensure that they are properly migrated and implemented.
Usually, Azure architects choose to take the AZ-303 exam before the AZ-304 because the concepts learnt in the AZ-303 course will help you build the foundation required to master the concepts of the AZ-304 course.
The AZ-304: Azure Architect Design Exam is $165.00 USD plus tax. This fee is paid to Microsoft when you register for your exam.
Azure exams are definitely not easy. The Microsoft AZ-304 exam is difficult than the Microsoft AZ-303.
Hands-on labs were not required for certification exams due to the pandemic but Microsoft may re-introduce them in the future.
