Detailed Review Of Preparation

Please find my AWS CCP Study Journey and study plan along with relevant links in mail below for quick reference.

Below study plan is based on my study needs since I wanted to take each step one at a time, so its divided into 4 step approach:

  1. ·         pre-prep ,
  2. ·         AWS Citrix training - Breadth
  3. ·         Udemy learning – Depth
  4. ·         Practise Exams

I would be more than happy to help for any questions or queries.

There are some more study material which I used, which I am adding at the end for references – additional study material – for additional Depth / Hands On learning.
