Hey man, great compilation and thank you so much for including my courses in your site, much appreciated.
By the way, I suggest you also add this slideshare from AWS on the list of Cloud Practitioner review materials: https://www.slideshare.net/mobile/AmazonWebServices/best-practices-for-architecting-in-the-cloud-jeff-barr/10-Design_for_Failure_with_AWS
I also have practice tests for CCP as well. And for the DevOps and SA Pro pages, could you kindly rectify my name please? It’s Jon Bonso not Boson ;)
Congratulations u/javathek and thank you for using our eBook and SAA-C02 practice tests!
For your upcoming SA Pro exam, it has a lot of questions about advanced networking, architecture, migration, configuration and other advanced topics. You should familiarize yourself about specific topics like longest prefix match for VPC Peering, AWS Organizations + SCP setup, Mechanical Turk and many more. There are a lot of migration scenarios too so make sure that you know the 6 Strategies for Migrating Applications to the Cloud.
You can also check out this free SA Pro sampler test as an additional resource.
I also co-authored an eBook that discusses the various topics in SA Pro exam. You might want to give this a try:
There's a lot of SA Pro discussions and recent exam feedback on u/acantril 's techstudyslack.com Slack channel that you can read. All the best and let's keep in touch in Linkedin!
Congratulations u/sheemat for passing one of the most difficult AWS certification exams! Thanks as well for using our practice tests. I understand that you only took 3 of our sets but is there any topic in the exam that we haven't covered?
If you want more challenge, I recommend taking Data Analytics, Advanced Networking and Machine Learning Specialties. Those exams are tough!
For the AWS DevOps Engineer Pro exam (DOP-C01) It is quite heavy on CI/CD, configuration and deployment management. Make sure that you know the advanced concepts such as Custom Actions in CodePipeline, Custom Layer/Cookbook in OpsWorks and Custom Resource in CloudFormation, plus various CodeDeploy types (Immutable, Blue/Green, Rolling etc). There are a lot of OpsWorks in the DevOps exam and some Beanstalk questions.
If you want to take a peek of what you’ll expect on the DevOps Engineer Pro exam, checkout this free AWS DevOps exam sampler as an additional resource: https://portal.tutorialsdojo.com/product-category/aws/aws-practice-exams/free-aws-practice-test-sampler/
I also co-authored an eBook, with Kenneth Samonte that covers the relevant DevOps topics. You can also use this as an additional resource: https://www.amazon.com/Certified-DevOps-Engineer-Professional-DOP-C01-ebook/dp/B08P26K6ZH/
And oh, don’t forget to avail your 50% exam discount voucher for your next exam from your AWS Certification account.
Since we're talking AWS, there is also the AWS Networking Speciality Certification as well. This will greatly increase your knowledge about AWS Networking. CCNA is hyper-specific to Cisco and really a requirement for most Network Engineers if you are working with Cisco. If you need to get started learning more about the fundamentals of networking I would go with the Net+ and then get the AWS Net Speciality Also there is the TCP/IP bible, imho TCP/IP Illustrated, Vol. 1: The Protocols
I bought aws solution architect pro app: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.magycbytes.awspro
Some questions are odd, but what I like is that I can practice my knowledge fast and easy :-)
For deeper studies I recommend the Udemy test from Bonso.
You need to really screw up as a company to get 1100 one star reviews. The reports are of rudeness, technical issues with their system, fraud, wasted time. You would imagine a lot of the bad experiences are from people who are maybe angry with the result but NO, everyone is angry with the system and the company.
Persons who experiences the Pearson shit-show should simply cancel the credit card transaction because this is nothing but a fraud.
TutorialsDojo Practice Exam for AWS Cloud Practitioner is the killer. I'm going to take a break and focus on my career for now. However, I'm going to grab the AWS SAA bundles in the future!! GREAT WORK T.D TEAM!
Like everyone said, don't just memorize the questions. Really read them thorough and utulize the AWS CheatSheet, Read AWS Exam Study For Cloud Practitioner, and the three AWS Technical Documentations. I suggest make hand written flash cards and upload them in your favorite flashcard tools (mine, brainscape).
Feel free to use (I broke it down per domain 1, 2, 3, and 4) https://www.brainscape.com/p/2BVSW-LH-AZYMP
Since the AWS SDK is Python, I would start there. Its a super power programming language that isn't going anywhere. I would also recommend taking a Linux class on Udemy.com, get familiar with creating files, accessing logs, mounting EBS volumes, troubleshooting, ect. Alot of the "code" I think you're referring to is the AWS CLI. Each service has their own CLI with tons of documentation on google. CloudFormation (very powerful service from AWS) uses YAML, important if you want to have your infrastructure (architecture) as code. Really depends what you will be doing! For passing the test you dont really need to know how to code, maybe a few API calls for the SA. Alot of the code you use as an SA will be copy and pasted from the documentation.
How is Whizlabs? Is that any good? I've seen some deals floating around on the internet for a lifetime membership purchasable on stacksocial.com I want to know if I should bother buying it?
Take practice exams! This is one that I used on my android phone:
Good luck! You will rock it!
Amazon - Why not !!!!
Or you can print your own stickers. There are websites like stickermule you can check and be creative in coming up with your own stickers.
Hello. Congratulations, and interesting post.
Full disclosure I teach a course for this cert, and I’m an AWS ML Hero, so I have biases...
While it’s true that 50% of this exam is nothing to do with AWS, the other 50% is made up of AWS specific questions around SageMaker and other AI services.
If you know ML inside out then you would have to have at least some intuition about AWS services at the very least to be able to pass.
Having said that, AWS SageMaker has been designed to support a ML Engineer using relatively native and open tools. So to address your current concern about not knowing where to start, you should be able to largely continue to work as you have in other environments.
From there you can explore the finer points of SageMaker such as the built in algorithms but with your background you may find yourself exiting SageMaker altogether and using raw AWS infrastructure to create highly bespoke solutions.
This book came out yesterday (I think) and you might find it interesting: https://www.amazon.com/Learn-Amazon-SageMaker-developers-scientists/dp/180020891X/ref=mp_s_a_1_3?dchild=1&keywords=sagemaker&qid=1598910682&sprefix=sagemaker&sr=8-3
And my course, while not yet compete will cover SageMaker and the other AWS AI services: http://link.mls-c01.com
I hope you find these useful. Thanks again - Mike
The AWS Cloud Practitioner Essentials online training is free (along with other offerings) if you sign up by December 9. You can access the content until the end of April 2023.
CCP is extremely simple. You can get this course for free right now and it teaches you most of what you need to know. To figure out the rest just jump into AWS and start playing with the services it mentions with simple "Hello World" programs.
I use these 2 apps. First link is for AWS solution architect associate and second link is for cloud practitioner
There are physical books available : https://www.amazon.com/Certified-Solutions-Architect-Study-Guide/dp/1119982626/ref=sr_1_2_sspa?crid=1A82E8Y9O4RNL&keywords=AWS+solutions+architect+4th+edition&qid=1665492055&qu=eyJxc2MiOiIxLjQ5IiwicXNhIjoiMC4wMCIsInFzcCI6IjAuMDAifQ%3D%...
I have the version of this book for the C02 and am still using it to study for the C03. I used the AWS docs to see what didn’t apply any more. Hopefully I’ll be OK. I am also using A Cloud Guru and Neil Davis’ video courses but I too prefer reading over video. Also, when I am at my sons sports practice a book is easier and I don’t need to worry about cell coverage/power, etc.
I checked again on exam history and it says Pass :)
Sorry for you but as you say you probably falled because just one question you obviously will success on next exam!
If you are using Android I suggest you to solve questions from this app https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.abc.aws
Hi, i passed today the Cloud partition test. I highly recommend this book:
AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08F6LDVD3?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share
Also recommend the Udemy course from Neal Davis.
With this 2 tools you would be pass the test without problem Good Luck.
Buy the only study guide on the market, watch AWS re:Invent videos, and take Amazon's free courses on AWS Skill Builder.
ITPRO.TV also has an AWS Certified Big Data – Specialty course that gives you an overview of the Data Analytics material, but it lacks depth.
Some potential books:
The Python for Finance one probably requires you to learn the language first.
Read the free AWS Well-Architected Framework white paper. It remains relevant no matter which version of the SAA exam you take.
Watch free AWS re:Invent videos on YouTube. They were among my favorite study materials. You can usually stop watching when a customer comes on stage to explain how they use AWS.
Take advantage of the free AWS online courses from Amazon.
After you've done all that, hopefully study materials will exist for the next version of the certification exam.
This book was just released and was written by an AWS employee:
AWS Certified Database - Specialty (DBS-C01) Certification Guide: A comprehensive guide to becoming an AWS Certified Database specialist https://smile.amazon.co.uk/dp/1803243104/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_KWGFD10GAEQYSF9461S4
Hey bro, for your first question, you can directly message the Udemy instructor or even tag him here. He is also active in this sub.
For the 2nd Q, there are a lot of great practice tests our there, including the one you are already using now.
For the exam tips (since I also passed the CCP exam), you can take the official AWS Cloud Practitioner Essentials video course provided for FREE by AWS. It’s a 6-hour course packed with relevant topics for CCP:
AWS exams are always changing and there are even some topics in the ACTUAL exam that are not available in the official AWS Docs. Not really that much, but in my experience, you could get some really odd questions. I recommend reading the AWS cloud best practices slide share for additional exam prep materials: https://www.slideshare.net/AmazonWebServices/best-practices-for-architecting-in-the-cloud-jeff-barr/10-Design_for_Failure_with_AWS
I hope this helps!
I use this app Clouds Mission to practice exam simulation, from what I have seen it has many questions and different certifications courses
have found this app Clouds Mission to practice exam simulation, it has a lot of questions too
For SAA I used this app, it have a lot of question for practice.
And there is a promotion code for Reddit users: CM_AWS_REDDIT
I found this low price for the Jon Bonso tests if others are interested. This is a good page for lower prices on udemy.
On CCP: Its a solid, high-level introduction to the services that AWS provides and how to architect systems on the core services. Its not the most useful thing in the world, but its a limited time investment and it will give you a survey of the landscape and help build momentum for the later, more difficult certs. In terms of prep, watch Andrew Brown's CCP course on YouTube (you can get through it in a weekend), and take a couple of practice exams on tutorial dojo if you feel the need.
On Docker: I've never heard of a docker certification until today, and I've been a software engineer for nearly a decade. I can't imagine it provides any value - Docker is a great tool, but the surface area is pretty limited. Just download Docker Desktop and work through the Docker 101 tutorial. https://www.docker.com/101-tutorial
That should take a couple hours - then go dockerize a random project you have sitting around, deploy it through dockerhub or whatever Amazon's container registry service is called, and you're good to go.
I 100% agree with those steps. To bolster your PS, a web dev or software engineering course is probably the place to start and not worry about AWS at all for a while. I'd suggest one of the free online boot camps such as https://www.freecodecamp.org/.
Depending on how committed OP is to out of work learning they may even be able to accelerate the timescales that you describe.
Thanks man for choosing our CCP practice tests! I also included a bunch of helpful flashcards to help you out on those tricky concepts about AWS Support, Instance Purchasing Options, Billing and others so do check them out before you take the exam.
I also included a complete list of reference links to AWS documentation, just like this one:
AWS cloud best practices (By Jeff Barr)
+1 for the aws.training site. Here’s the direct link for AWS Cloud Practitioner Essentials:
Additional resource for you - AWS cloud best practices slideshare: https://www.slideshare.net/AmazonWebServices/best-practices-for-architecting-in-the-cloud-jeff-barr/10-Design_for_Failure_with_AWS
+1 for the free amazon digital course. Here’s the link for the AWS Cloud Practitioner Essentials video course for your convenience:
I also suggest that you take a look at the AWS cloud best practices here: https://www.slideshare.net/AmazonWebServices/best-practices-for-architecting-in-the-cloud-jeff-barr/10-Design_for_Failure_with_AWS
I got lots of questions in the CCP exam about “Design for Failure” , “ Implement Elasticity” best practices that I only saw from that slideshare. Cheers!
Hey man, thank you so much for choosing our practice test in Udemy. I made sure that all of the topics are covered in our reviewer and the topics in the flashcards are related to the actual CCP exam. Make sure that you check the explanations and reference links that we provided for additional reading.
The course that you’re using from Linux Academy is great. You can also check out the official AWS Cloud Practitioner Essentials digital course that is provided for free by AWS:
I also included this reference from our practice tests but make sure you read this one too: https://www.slideshare.net/mobile/AmazonWebServices/best-practices-for-architecting-in-the-cloud-jeff-barr/10-Design_for_Failure_with_AWS
By the way, my surname is Jon Bonso, not Bosco :)
Wish you luck man! Don’t place your 100% trust on the recommended exam prep materials provided by AWS. I have passed a lot of AWS certification and studied every page of the recommended whitepapers and FAQs, but there are still some topics that will show up out from nowhere. When I passed my CCP exam last year, I saw lots of question about “Design For Failure” , “Implement Elasticity” design concepts that were NOT available from any of their AWS documentation. I only saw it on a slideshare from Jeff Barr:
I didn’t use the Bonso test for CCP, but if he has these topics, then you are on the right track. I also remember a lot of Support plans and Support Response times questions. Brush up with those.
Updated roadmap is here https://www.notion.so/96fc88a739dc45a59174f1acd8a96776?v=604d7bc7ed9744e1982ef257273d44f9
I liked working out of a book, but the book didn’t have everything. I used Tutorial Dojo practice tests and I watched a few videos from AWS (Power Hour and Exam Preparedness). There are also tons of AWS tutorials/labs that you can find. Do a few EC2, S3 and Elastic Beanstalk.
Book I used — https://www.amazon.com/Certified-Solutions-Architect-Study-Guide/dp/1119713080/
I liked it and used it to pass. Not perfect, but covers most basics. I’d look up any wrong answers from practice tests and take extra notes in the book.
How do you best learn? Do you learn best from watching videos, from reading, or by hands on practice?
If you are a video person give the Udemy course a shot. I used it, personally didn't like it because frankly Stephane's voice annoys me.
What I found the most useful was this book -
And setting up an AWS free tier account and getting some hands-on practice.
How good are you at multiple choice exams? If you struggle with them, some things you can do -
I failed SAA CO2 once and passed by the skin of my teeth on the second take. It's a hard test, you got to bring your A game to it.
> Probably gonna try to get my AZ-900 next. Still trying to look for some good study material on par with Jon Bonso and Stephane Maarek for Microsoft though.
I think you should look into one of the many options Udemy has to offer (~$10 go a long way). However I saw this one available as well:
Learning Python is good but not necessary - yet.
Go through this course. Don’t worry about learning how to program. Just make sure you understand how it works on a high level and go through the course with him. That gives you a nice overview of how the different services interact.
Yes this process takes longer than passing a certification. But AWS is more complicated than passing a multiple choice test.
I asked the question in another forum and someone suggested notion. I just checked and it looks like would handle code blocks well. It also can handle images. I am leaning toward giving it a try. I have heard nothing but good things and have looked at it a few times over the last 6 months. Every time I go to their site, I am turned off by all the team stuff because I don't want/need any of that. Looking at the free plan and just leveraging the note taking features might just work for me. Check it out. Oh, still have the walled garden problem too.
Great. Just wanted to confirm if this is the book you used?
The AWS Certified Security Specialty All-in-One Exam Guide was published on February 25, 2021. That's just shy of 10 months old.
Amazon has free AWS Security training here, but it may not be as new as the study guide.
-AWS Cloud Newbie
-A Cloud Guru
Also I search through older posts when I have this type of question. I get a feel for what worked for most people.
For CPP, I personally used ACG.
Did you whitelist your IP in your security group? Visit https://ipinfo.io to find your IP.
Ensure RDP (TCP/22) is open to your IP address.
If you didn't use the default VPC, you'll need to ensure your EC2 instance has a default route pointed to an Internet Gateway (IGW).
Also - did you assign a public IPv4 address to your instance?
Congrats bro, I also passed my AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner exam on Saturday with a 970/1000, within 10 days of practicing I did not have any real AWS experience before starting but had a 5yr+ career in Information technology. Get Familiar with the Subject Areas. When you are preparing for an exam, subject area for the exam becomes the most important thing that you must understand. Objectives of AWS certification is very important review them carefully, and then start your preparation through the Valid study material to know the complexity of each subject area.
How I prepared:
Actually, read all the whitepapers on the exam outline from AWS on this Cert.
Take all AWS Tutorials and Courses.
Read the Valid AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner exam study guide (60%) Practice valid exam practice questions. Most of questions are matched.
At the end one thing more I want to say, reading AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner Exam community reviews and discussions regarding exam experience of different candidates will be helpful.
Good luck :)
Don't be sad hatemyjobZ, I will suggest you read all the whitepapers on the exam outline from AWS on this Cert.
Read the Valid AWS Certified Solutions Architect- Professional exam study guide (60%) Practice valid exam practice questions. Most of questions are matched.
At the end one thing more I want to say, reading AWS Certified Solutions Architect- Professional Exam community reviews and discussions regarding exam experience of different candidates will be helpful.
This is a good approach. Get Stephane's resource on Udemy.com and Jon's course at portal.tutorialsdojo.com. Jon's site has free courses included, with one full CCP course. I saw some discounted coupon code on Stephane's linkedin page
Just passed mine tonight, I liked how I can schedule an 8pm at home from Pearson VUE at 4:40pm the same day :). I did ACG first (which I enjoyed the on-hand labs) then Bonzo practice tests on Tutorials Dojo. 3 weeks for me since I feel like I had to spend extra time on the Bonzos memorizing the names and definitions, but I do confirm that the actual test was easier than the Bonzo, not too much easier, just enough to be confident knowing you'll pass. Now on to the CSA-A for me, should l go Cantrill.io or Udemy.com this time? Which one has better labs?
I dunno about Jon Bonso practice tests, I took the six practice tests on Udemy (https://udemy.com/course/aws-certified-cloud-practitioner-practice-test/) until I got 90%+ and got 880. My joke was, it asks if you can spell "cloud". Not very hard. Obv questions on S3, EC2 instance types, CloudFront and Edge, Regions and Availability Zones. Pretty basic stuff.
100% get Stephane Maarek course on Udemy.com. Take your time, learn the material, and go over the questions you missed. Bonsos tests are usually harder than the actual test. Keep taking them and keep studying. It ultimately comes down to how much you want it! Good luck!
Hey, my courses are on Udemy and you can find links with discount coupons at https://courses.datacumulus.com I got a course for SOA-C01 that thousands of people took.
Hey, my courses are on Udemy and you can find links with discount coupons at https://courses.datacumulus.com I got a course for SAA-C02 that hundreds of thousands of people took, alongside a dedicated course for practice exams.
way to go!! congratulations! I'm also starting on the journey. Bought udemy Jon Bonso practice tests and Stephane Mareek's course. I'm not sure if I should do the whizlabs too. I'm just starting Stephane Course so will see how it goes. There was a deal online (https://stacksocial.com/sales/whizlabs-lifetime-membership) to get unlimited whizlabs tests so that's why asking if I should just secure the deal in case I will use it later when the time comes?
For the SAA, right? I used the AWS Certified Solutions Architect Associate All-in-One Exam Guide.
I also used an AWS SAA training course and watched numerous AWS re:Invent videos on YouTube. The training course I used was from ITProTV, but I see lots of people recommending Cantrill.io. I found AWS re:Invent videos to be very helpful, but some are better than others.
Great vids out there for sure. But to avoid the issues you mentioned and to accommodate people like myself with zero patience I’m working on a series of books. The first one came out a couple of months ago. As my calendar permits, I’m committed to delivering the lessons in fewer than 100 pages with ample diagrams and diving right into real world scenarios ASAP like this one and hundreds of mini scenarios that my teams have worked on over the years. Too old school the approach might be, but I’m a huge believer in understanding the why before getting to the how.
There's a study guide due to be published in 8 months, but I'm guessing you don't want to wait.
I've got some database videos on my AWS Data Analytics - Specialty playlist on YouTube. On the playlist: RDS, Aurora, Elasticache, DynamoDB, Redshift, Neptune. Not on the playlist: DocumentDB, Keyspaces, Timestream, QLDB.
They also have eBooks too on Amazon Kindle, though you can get it a lower prices on their site. Their DevOps eBook is well done in my opinion and they cover most of the topics on the DevOps exams. There's some hands-on section in the book too.
In my opinion, this is great resource to have, since you can skim the book from cover to cover easier. I like having a bird's eye view of the different topics in the exam for a quick review. However, it really depends on your learning style.
I’ve personally used/enjoyed the Sybex ones. There’s SO much change within the platform and services that the books become outdated quickly but they’re still useful IMO
AWS Certified Solutions Architect Study Guide with Online Labs: Associate SAA-C02 Exam https://www.amazon.com/dp/1119819474/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_glt_fabc_F2PDTWHJT4DVFZFBH289?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1
Thanks. I saw that one on Amazon but it didn't have any reviews, so I didn't purchase. Are you using it? Guessing you would recommend it?
Or here's another one I found today from this book: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B08B563TN7
>An application scans a DDB once per day during non-peak hours when production uses about 50% of allocated throughput. How can you MINIMIZE the time it takes to produce the report without affecting production workloads (pick 2)
>1. Use a parallel scan
>2. Increase Read Capacity Units during the scan operation
>3. Use the limit parameter
Obviously, 1 is correct, but the answer key said that the other correct answer is 3 because 2 would increase costs. 3 would prevent you from using all of the RCUs during the scan. Throttling the operation won't minimize the time it takes, and optimizing for cost wasn't included as a requirement.
So this answer is flagrantly wrong! Should I expect to have to second-guess things like this in the test? Where I'm expected to optimize for metrics that aren't specified, sometimes at the expense of metrics that are?
*disclaimer: personal opinion, does not reflect actual cert or the opinions of experts, AWS personnel, etc.
I honestly believe that you could get a guide that specifies exactly what services are on the AWS SAA cert (personally I got this book by Neal Davis: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07PND36WD/ref=dbs_a_def_rwt_bibl_vppi_i2). It isn't a complete edition of what is on the exam, but does a good job of concentrating on potential exam questions. I also took the Jon Bonso practice exams hosted on Udemy. IMO his questions were very similar to the actual cert questions, but I've also heard that about the Whizlabs practice exams.
I don't know how much info you're seeking about this, but those two resources are literally all I used (Neal Davis Training Guide 2021 and Jon Bonso practice tests). PM me if you want more advice!
🎉 Congratulations and thank you for using our reviewer!
The SA Pro exam has a lot of questions about advanced networking, architecture, migration, configuration and other advanced topics. You should familiarize yourself about specific topics like longest prefix match for VPC Peering, AWS Organizations + SCP setup, Mechanical Turk and many more. There are a lot of migration scenarios too so make sure that you know the 6 Strategies for Migrating Applications to the Cloud.
I also co-authored an eBook that discusses the various topics in SA Pro exam. You might want to give this a try.
🎉 Congratulations for getting 7x AWS Certified and thank you for using our practice tests!
Glad to hear that our practice tests and the free AWS-Authored digital courses in our portal helped! For your DevOps exam, you can also take the other free AWS video courses here: https://portal.tutorialsdojo.com/product-category/aws-digital-courses-2/
Like the Data Analytics exam, the scenarios in the DevOps exam is also lengthy. Make sure that you know the advanced concepts such as Custom Actions in CodePipeline, Custom Layer/Cookbook in OpsWorks and Custom Resource in CloudFormation, plus various CodeDeploy types (Immutable, Blue/Green, Rolling etc). There are a lot of OpsWorks in the DevOps exam and some Beanstalk questions.
All the best in achieving your 8th AWS cert!
Congratulations for passing the DevOps Pro (DOP-C01) exam! That's definitely a tough one! Thanks for using our practice tests!

If you’re planning to take another AWS exam, we have free AWS samplers that you can use too:
Sounds like a plan! All the best! Aside from practice tests, we also have eBooks for SA Pro and Security Specialty to help you fast track your learning.
Apologies for the shameless plug but these affordable eBooks are packed with essential topics that are relevant for your exams, so I thought you might give it a try:
Actually I did at first.... I started with this book I found on Amazon, but I do NOT recommend it at all. The information in the book is good, but it's outdated and some answers to questions have changed since this was published so all it did was confused me when I started talking online practice tests
Hello! I now remember not having any guide for CDA when I took the exam (because there wasn't one), but if I had to have a book, I'd choose the official guide listed here:
Why the AWS Official Guides are the best in my opinion: they are written by the same people who write the exam and give you a good sense of the boundaries of what is on the exam, and what is not. Also, working for AWS, they have insight that non-official guides can provide.
Hope this helps!

For the record, there haven’t been any other inconsistencies so far being about halfway through the book, but definitely worth noting for those out there.
I was already planning on taking the Jon Bonzo tests after this to prepare further, but now I will definitely be sure to diversify my study materials to make sure the information is consistent. Thanks for the confirmation!
This is the official study guide. While it may not be completely up to date, the basics don’t change, it has good end of chapter study questions, it’s thorough abc has practice exercises.
I still suggest after going through the book, you find a good up to date video course to make sure you are up to date. You should just be able to skim any video content.
Here is the one that I'm using. Neals Book
Are you sure u/Scarface74 ?, I already checked that book and I saw some negative comments saying that this book is quite outdated.
Just another quick note - as i remember them...
While this book doesn't go too deep into any particular subject, it does serve as a great refresher just before the test. You can get through the entire book in 4-5 hours.
Oddly enough, he does actually mention container security and the book was published in 2019. So it's current.

There are books... such as this https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/1789617316/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 (they might have a few issues/mistakes/be a bit old by the time you read them... but easier to cover large amounts of content in books than video form, easier to make notes on them, etc)
