Detailed Review Of Preparation

I initially started taking online training with someone out of India. At that time I did not know where to start. As time progressed, I found out about Acloudguru at a reasonable price and they gave me access to all cloud platforms. Their pre-recorded training on the subject was helpful, like it. I took the test and failed. My score was 712, needed score was 720. A friend of mine suggested that I should do practice test at whizlabs. Another resource. Their practice tests are helpful but trainings are not that good in my opinion compare to acloudguru. Bought the AWS Official guide by Wiley publication and used their practice tests, flashcards came with it. I appeared for the exam 2nd time after 14 days waiting period. This time, I passed and my score was 857 out of 1000. Now, I am preparing for the SysOps and Security specialty. Considering Linux Academy. I heard good things about them. I will write about them later. Good luck to you all. Oh, my phones are ringing frequently for excellent opportunities in the cloud space due to my long career in Infrastructure along with cloud knowledge and of course the AWS Certification helps.

Benefits From Certification

  • Pay Hike
  • Promotion
  • Knowledge is Power
  • I just did it for the giggles
