Detailed Review Of Preparation


I cleared the AWS Associate solutions architect certification exam with a score of 913 out of 1000 and would like to share my experience in the preparation for someone else if it helps. 

The main resources used were 

Course by Stephane Maarek in Udemy

Practice Sets by Jon Bonso in Udemy

AWS Free tier for hands-on

I must say the above courses are very well constructed and aligned with the exam. Stephane has made the tutorial in a very lucid manner with good flow diagrams and scenario case studies which is very helpful to organize the learning into something constructive. I really enjoyed this course. Practice sets by Jon Bonso are a must, keep attempting them until you achieve more than 90% in each set. Review the wrong answers and also the correct answers each time. Also, very important we have to do some hands-on ( keeping in mind the potential costing if applicable ). Try to use the core services within the free tier and avoid modules that incur a cost. Make sure to clean up after its done and also set an alarm for the budget.

All the best :)
