O guia para o exame apresenta todos os tópicos necessários num grau razoável de profundidade e complementa a preparação para o exame com testes no final de cada capítulo e simulados online.
Enquanto cumpre ao que se propõe o livro poderia fornecer guias passo a passo de exercícios práticos, talvez um projeto longo para construir uma aplicação envolvendo vários serviços para que os leitores tenham visão melhor, mais prática e competência para arquitetar e operar na AWS, não apenas passar no exame.
Today I have cleared the AWS certified solutions architect - associate exam. It's one of the book which I used for my exam preparation, questions available in online exam simulator provided with this book are good and with higher degree of difficulty level.
I would refer this book to people who wants to perceive AWS certification.
After reading 30% of the book, I feel like now why did I spend lot of money in online trainings. This book covers each concept and I fell in love with this book. I know I can't binge read it and will it not help me to clear exam as well.
I read 2 pages every day and practice the cli commands over weekends with great focus and concentration and I am amazed by the way the book is written there are some concepts which was never discussed in any former trainings that I had.
Worthy book !! And a must for anyone trying to explore AWS.
I have passed the exam and can say this book was a great help to achieving it! I also used a Udemy course in combination as I like to follow tutorials as well and it helps as a kind of pairing during the exercises.
Every chapter is very well written and the book has 2 main parts, the core and then the Well Architected Framework part. This is really necessary as the exam was very focused on it. I also used the online resources that come with the book. It does go into a lot of details about prices and storage space. But after doing the exam I can tell you, it was necessary!
The questions didn’t literally ask how much this or that, but you are presented with a case and if you don’t know the details then it’s just a gamble what to answer.
I would definitely recommend this book and be careful with your spendings. I hear/see many people getting angry at courses/books, because they didn’t watch out for spendings while doing the exercises. There is a free tier, but this doesn’t mean it’s all for free. If your account is over a year old, pretty much 80% of the free tier stuff is gone. So be aware and do the exercises when you have enough time to do it and to clean up. You don’t want to have things running you don’t need.
Lots of great questions. But the difficulty level I don't feel is quite right. The questions were a lot more challenging I felt than the actual exam. For example I passed half of the exams in the book, and then very comfortably passed the real exam. So it's great prep, but maybe don't stress if you're just about scraping a pass or just about failing!
