Detailed Review Of Preparation

I started off with the AWS Cloud Practitioner examination which is the basic exam. I had some basic hands-on experience with AWS services which I gained during my Internship. Once I passed the CCP, I was motivated to take the Solutions Architect level and we also get a 50% discount voucher since we took an AWS exam already. 

I started with A Cloud Guru videos which give a high-level overview of the exam topics. They also provide hands-on labs that you can do in parallel using the AWS free-tier account(valid for 1 year). You can't go take the exams after watching these videos because you need a deeper understanding. For that, I read Jayendra Patil's blogs in which you will find cheat sheets and notes which are really helpful. I also took Jon Bonso's practice tests in Udemy(6 practice tests)which is harder than the real exam but worth it. Don't forget to read the detailed description for every answer that's the main scoring element.AWS FAQs and whitepapers are long but FAQs will really help you with the exam. I also solved lots of questions from random websites to test my readiness.

All the best!
