Detailed Review Of Preparation
Hello there, I am so very happy
to share that I PASSED the AWS SAA-C01 exam.
And now that I have passed my
exam, I share my exam preparation study plan and study tips for the benefit of
KINDLY TAKE NOTE: This is
my personal self-study preference plan for the AWS
Certified Solutions Architect – Associate Certification (SAA0-C01)
1. The study plan was spread over
3 months from mid of December 2019 till the date of my exam on 20-March-2020. This
was a bit relaxed study plan period. You can get ready early or late subject to
the study time available with a job.
2. Read the AWS CSAA Official
Study Guide ver. 2 and also ver. 1. The ver. 1 reading is much recommended
by me and also preferable, to get an elaborate understanding across all the
domains and clarity of the foundational concepts.
3. Below are the Udemy Course

4. AWS Free Tier Labs,
Whitepapers, FAQ's – For Hands-on labs practice and read for appropriate
clarity. You may find them useful if you get stuck up for functional aspects
of any domain, or seem weak and for conceptual clarity.
5. Now the most important part :).
Questions, which I got for my individual-specific exam. Actually I would say in
general, I got questions on most of the aspects across the 5 Domains and
nothing seems to have been missed out.
6. VERY IMPORTANT Lookout
for simple and very clearly highlighted Key Words in the last line of the Exam Qs
MOST Preferred, LEAST
or MOST Expensive, COST Effective, SUGGESTED Solution, BEST
Storage, CUSTOM Metric, etc.
That is all to share in a
summary and WISH YOU ALL THE BEST to clear your exams with success.
