Detailed Review Of Preparation

I have completed AWS certified Solutions architect associate exam recently in my first attempt.

Because of working, I studied only during in my week offs and completed this certification in 4 months. I took cloud guru Ryan Kroonenburg, AWS architect course from udemy and started learning it, spent hardly 6 hours in my weekly offs. The Content is good with detailed explanations. I have maintained my own notes while preparing along with practice labs which had helped in ease of this certification.

Completed Ryan Kroonenburg course in 2 months, after that I took Jon bonso practice exams from udemy. These practice exams are bit tough and all are scenario based questions on resiliency, fault tolerant, security practices etc. I have practiced it more where I felt lag, I have noted it in my own notes, concentrated more on my mistakes during these exams.

After 2 months of these practice exams,lab preparations. I have decided to enroll a date  for the final AWS certified exam. honestly, the main certified exam is not tough at all and it is easy with some moderate level questions compared to the tough practice exams.

From my learning experience over this certification, if you learn and practice more the final AWS exam will be very easy to crack it in first attempt.

All the best and keep always learning!!
