PASSED AWS CCP (2022)

AWS Cloud Practitioner CCP CLF-C01 Certification Exam Prep

Went through the entire CloudAcademy course. Most of the info went out the other ear. Got a 67% on their final exam. Took the ExamPro free exam, got 69%.

Was going to take it last Saturday, but I bought TutorialDojo’s exams on Udemy. Did one Friday night, got a 50% and rescheduled it a week later to today Sunday.


AI Unraveled: Demystifying Frequently Asked Questions on Artificial Intelligence (OpenAI, ChatGPT, Google Bard, Generative AI, Discriminative AI, xAI, LLMs, GPUs, Machine Learning, NLP, Promp Engineering)

Took 4 total TD exams. Got a 50%, 54%, 67%, and 64%. Even up until last night I hated the TD exams with a passion, I thought they were covering way too much stuff that didn’t even pop up in study guides I read. Their wording for some problems were also atrocious. But looking back, the bulk of my “studying” was going through their pretty well written explanations, and their links to the white papers allowed me to know what and where to read.

Not sure what score I got yet on the exam. As someone who always hated testing, I’m pretty proud of myself. I also had to take a dump really bad starting at around question 25. Thanks to TutorialsDojo Jon Bonso for completely destroying my confidence before the exam, forcing me to up my game. It’s better to walk in way over prepared than underprepared.

Just Passed My CCP exam today (within 2 weeks)

I would like to thank this community for recommendations about exam preparation. It was wayyyy easier than I expected (also way easier than TD practice exams scenario-based questions-a lot less wordy on real exam). I felt so unready before the exam that I rescheduled the exam twice. Quick tip: if you have limited time to prepare for this exam, I would recommend scheduling the exam beforehand so that you don’t procrastinate fully.

If you are looking for an all-in-one solution to help you prepare for the AWS Cloud Practitioner Certification Exam, look no further than this AWS Cloud Practitioner CCP CLF-C02 book

Resources:

-Stephane’s course on Udemy (I have seen people saying to skip hands-on videos but I found them extremely helpful to understand most of the concepts-so try to not skip those hands-on)

-Tutorials Dojo practice exams (I did only 3.5 practice tests out of 5 and already got 8-10 EXACTLY worded questions on my real exam)

Previous Aws knowledge:

-Very little to no experience (deployed my group’s app to cloud via Elastic beanstalk in college-had 0 clue at the time about what I was doing-had clear guidelines)

Preparation duration: -2 weeks (honestly watched videos for 12 days and then went over summary and practice tests on the last two days)

Links to resources:

https://tutorialsdojo.com/courses/aws-certified-cloud-practitioner-practice-exams/

I used Stephane Maarek on Udemy. Purchased his course and the 6 Practice Exams. Also got Neal Davis’ 500 practice questions on Udemy. I took Stephane’s class over 2 days, then spent the next 2 weeks going over the tests (3~4 per day) till I was constantly getting over 80% – passed my exam with a 882.

Passed – CCP CLF-C01

 

What an adventure, I’ve never really gieven though to getting a cert until one day it just dawned on me that it’s one of the few resources that are globally accepted. So you can approach any company and basically prove you know what’s up on AWS 😀

Passed with two weeks of prep (after work and weekends)

Resources Used:

  • https://www.exampro.co/

    • This was just a nice structured presentation that also gives you the powerpoint slides plus cheatsheets and a nice overview of what is said in each video lecture.

  • Udemy – AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner Practice Exams, created by Jon Bonso**, Tutorials Dojo**

    • These are some good prep exams, they ask the questions in a way that actually make you think about the related AWS Service. With only a few “Bullshit! That was asked in a confusing way” questions that popped up.

Pass AWS CCP. The score is beyond expected

I took CCP 2 days ago and got the pass notification right after submitting the answers. In about the next 3 hours I got an email from Credly for the badge. This morning I got an official email from AWS congratulating me on passing, the score is much higher than I expected. I took Stephane Maarek’s CCP course and his 6 demo exams, then Neal Davis’ 500 questions also. On all the demo exams, I took 1 fail and all passes with about 700-800. But in the real exam, I got 860. The questions in the real exam are kind of less verbose IMO, but I don’t truly agree with some people I see on this sub saying that they are easier.
Just a little bit of sharing, now I’ll find something to continue ^^

Good luck with your own exams.

Passed the exam! Spent 25 minutes answering all the questions. Another 10 to review. I might come back and update this post with my actual score.

Background

– A year of experience working with AWS (e.g., EC2, Elastic Beanstalk, Route 53, and Amplify).

– Cloud development on AWS is not my strong suit. I just Google everything, so my knowledge is very spotty. Less so now since I studied for this exam.

Study stats

– Spent three weeks studying for the exam.

Ace the Microsoft Azure Fundamentals AZ-900 Certification Exam: Pass the Azure Fundamentals Exam with Ease

– Studied an hour to two every day.

– Solved 800-1000 practice questions.

– Took 450 screenshots of practice questions and technology/service descriptions as reference notes to quickly swift through on my phone and computer for review. Screenshots were of questions that I either didn’t know, knew but was iffy on, or those I believed I’d easily forget.

– Made 15-20 pages of notes. Chill. Nothing crazy. This is on A4 paper. Free-form note taking. With big diagrams. Around 60-80 words per page.

– I was getting low-to-mid 70%s on Neal Davis’s and Stephane Maarek’s practice exams. Highest score I got was an 80%.

– I got a 67(?)% on one of Stephane Maarek’s exams. The only sub-70% I ever got on any practice test. I got slightly anxious. But given how much harder Maarek’s exams are compared to the actual exam, the anxiety was undue.

– Finishing the practice exams on time was never a problem for me. I would finish all of them comfortably within 35 minutes.

Resources used

– AWS Cloud Practitioner Essentials on the AWS Training and Certification Portal

– AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner Practice Tests (Book) by Neal Davis

– 6 Practice Exams | AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner CLF-C01 by Stephane Maarek*

– Certified Cloud Practitioner Course by Exam Pro (Paid Version)**

– One or two free practice exams found by a quick Google search

*Regarding Exam Pro: I went through about 40% of the video lectures. I went through all the videos in the first few sections but felt that watching the lectures was too slow and laborious even at 1.5-2x speed. (The creator, for the most part, reads off of the slides, adding brief comments here and there.) So, I decided to only watch the video lectures for sections I didn’t have a good grasp on. (I believe the video lectures provided in the course are just split versions of the full length course available for free on YouTube under the freeCodeCamp channel, here.) The online course provides five practice exams. I did not take any of them.

**Regarding Stephane Maarek: I only took his practice exams. I did not take his study guide course.

Notes

– My study regimen (i.e., an hour to two every day for three weeks) was overkill.

– The questions on the practice exams created by Neal Davis and Stephane Maarek were significantly harder than those on the actual exam. I believe I could’ve passed without touching any of these resources.

– I retook one or two practice exams out of the 10+ I’ve taken. I don’t think there’s a need to retake the exams as long as you are diligent about studying the questions and underlying concepts you got wrong. I reviewed all the questions I missed on every practice exam the day before.

What would I do differently?

– Focus on practice tests only. No video lectures.

– Focus on the technologies domain. You can intuit your way through questions in the other domains.

– Chill

AWS SAA-C02 SAA-C03 Exam Prep

Just passed SAA-C03, thoughts on it

 
  • Lots of the comments here about networking / VPC questions being prevalent are true. Also so many damn Aurora questions, it was like a presales chat.

  • The questions are actually quite detailed; as some had already mentioned. So pay close attention to the minute details Some questions you definitely have to flag for re-review.

  • It is by far harder than the Developer Associate exam, despite it having a broader scope. The DVA-C02 exam was like doing a speedrun but this felt like finishing off Sigrun on GoW. Ya gotta take your time.

I took the TJ practice exams. It somewhat helped, but having intimate knowledge of VPC and DB concepts would help more.

Passed SAA-C03 – Feedback

Just passed the SAA-C03 exam (864) and wanted to provide some feedback since that was helpful for me when I was browsing here before the exam.

#ad

I come from an IT background and have a strong knowledge in the VPC portion so that section was a breeze for me in the preparation process (I had never used AWS before this so everything else was new, but the concepts were somewhat familiar considering my background). I started my preparation about a month ago, and used the Mareek class on Udemy. Once I finished the class and reviewed my notes I moved to Mareek’s 6 practice exams (on Udemy). I wasn’t doing extremely well on the PEs (I passed on 4/6 of the exams with 70s grades) I reviewed the exam questions after each exam and moved on to the next. I also purchased Tutorial Dojo’s 6 exams set but only ended up taking one out of 6 (which I passed).

Overall the practice exams ended up being a lot harder than the real exam which had mostly the regular/base topics: a LOT of S3 stuff and storage in general, a decent amount of migration questions, only a couple questions on VPCs and no ML/AI stuff.

My Study Guide for passing the SAA-C03 exam

Sharing the study guide that I followed when I prepared for the AWS Certified Solutions Architect Associate SAA-C03 exam. I passed this test and thought of sharing a real exam experience in taking this challenging test.

First off: my background – I have 8 years of development.experience and been doing AWS for several project, both personally and at work. Studied for a total of 2 months. Focused on the official Exam Guide, and carefully studied the Task Statements and related AWS services.

SAA-C03 Exam Prep

For my exam prep, I bought the adrian cantrill video coursetutorialsdojo (TD) video course and practice exams. Adrian’s course is just right and highly educational but like others has said, the content is long and cover more than just the exam. Did all of the hands-on labs too and played around some machine learning services in my AWS account.

TD video course is short and a good overall summary of the topics items you’ve just learned. One TD lesson covers multiple topics so the content is highly concise. After I completed doing Adrian’s video course, I used TD’s video course as a refresher, did a couple of their hands-on labs then head on to their practice exams.

For the TD practice exams, I took the exam in chronologically and didn’t jumped back and forth until I completed all tests. I first tried all of the 7 timed-mode tests, and review every wrong ones I got on every attempt., then the 6 review-mode tests and the section/topic-based tests. I took the final-test mode roughly 3 times and this is by far one of the helpful feature of the website IMO. The final-test mode generates a unique set from all TD question bank, so every attempt is challenging for me. I also noticed that the course progress doesn’t move if I failed a specific test, so I used to retake the test that I failed.

The Actual SAA-C03 Exam

The actual AWS exam is almost the same with the ones in the TD tests where:

  • All of the questions are scenario-based

  • There are two (or more) valid solutions in the question, e.g:

    • Need SSL: options are ACM and self-signed URL

    • Need to store DB credentials: options are SSM Parameter Store and Secrets Manager

  • The scenarios are long-winded and asks for:

    • MOST Operationally efficient solution

    • MOST cost-effective

    • LEAST amount overhead

Overall, I enjoyed the exam and felt fully prepared while taking the test, thanks to Adrian and TD, but it doesn’t mean the whole darn thing is easy. You really need to put some elbow grease and keep your head lights on when preparing for this exam. Good luck to all and I hope my study guide helped out anyone who is struggling.

Another Passed SAA-C03?

Just another thread about passing the general exam? I passed SAA-C03 yesterday, would like to share my experience on how I earned the examination.

Background:

– graduate with networking background

– working experience on on-premise infrastructure automation, mainly using ansible, python, zabbix and etc.

– cloud experience, short period like 3-6 months with practice

– provisioned cloud application using terraform in azure and aws

Course that I used fully:

– AWS Certified Solutions Architect – Associate (SAA-C03) | learn.cantri (cantrill.io)

– AWS Certified Solutions Architect Associate Exam – SAA-C03 Study Path (tutorialsdojo.com)

Course that I used partially or little:

– Ultimate AWS Certified Solutions Architect Associate (SAA) | Udemy

– Practice Exams | AWS Certified Solutions Architect Associate | Udemy

Lab that I used:

– Free tier account with cantrill instruction

– Acloudguru lab and sandbox

– Percepio lab

Comment on course:

cantrill course is depth and lot of practical knowledge, like email alias and etc.. check in to know more

tutorialdojo practice exam help me filter the answer and guide me on correct answer. If I am wrong in specific topic, I rewatch cantrill video. However, there is some topics that not covered by cantrill but the guideline/review in practice exam will provide pretty much detail. I did all the other mode before the timed-based, after that get average 850 in timed-based exam, while scoring the final practice exam with 63/65. However, real examination is harder compared to practice exam in my opinion.

udemy course and practice exam, I go through some of them but I think the practice exam is quite hard compared to tutorialdojo.

lab – just get hand dirty and they will make your knowledge deep dive in your brain, my advice is try not only to do copy and paste lab but really read the description for each parameter in aws portal

Advice:

you need to know some general exam topics like how to:

– s3 private access

– ec2 availability

– kinesis product including firehose, data stream, blabla

– iam

My next target will be AWS SAP and CKA, still searching suitable material for AWS SAP but proposed mainly using acloudguru sandbox and homelab to learn the subject, practice with acantrill lab in github.

Good luck anyone!

Passed SAA

I wanted to give my personal experience. I have a background in IT, but I have never worked in AWS previous to 5 weeks ago. I got my Cloud Practitioner in a week and SAA after another 4 weeks of studying (2-4 hours a day). I used Cantril’s Course and Tutorials Dojo Practice Exams. I highly, highly recommend this combo. I don’t think I would have passed without the practice exams, as they are quite difficult. In my opinion, they are much more difficult than the actual exam. They really hit the mark on what kind of content you will see. I got a 777, and that’s with getting 70-80%’s on the practice exams. I probably could have done better, but I had a really rough night of sleep and I came down with a cold. I was really on the struggle bus halfway through the test.

I only had a couple of questions on ML / AI, so make sure you know the differences between them all. Lot’s of S3 and EC2. You really need to know these in and out.

My company is offering stipend’s for each certification, so I’m going straight to developer next.

Recently passed SAA-C03

Just passed my SAA-C03 yesterday with 961 points. My first time doing AWS certification. I used Cantrill’s course. Went through the course materials twice, and took around 6 months to study, but that’s mostly due to my busy schedule. I found his materials very detailed and probably go beyond what you’d need for the actual exam.

I also used Stephane’s practice exams on Udemy. I’d say it’s instrumental in my passing doing these to get used to the type of questions in the actual exams and review missing knowledge. Would not have passed otherwise.

Just a heads-up, there are a few things popped up that I did not see in the course materials or practice exams:

* Lake Formation: question about pooling data from RDS and S3, as well as controlling access.

* S3 Requester Pays: question about minimizing S3 data cost when sharing with a partner.

* Pinpoint journey: question about customer replying to SMS sent-out and then storing their feedback.

Not sure if they are graded or Amazon testing out new parts.

Cheers.

Another SAP-C01-Pass

Received my notification this morning that I passed 811.

Prep Time: 10 weeks 2hrs a day

Materials: Neil Davis videos/practice exam Jon Bonso practice exams White papers Misc YouTube videos Some hands on

Prof Experience: 4 years AWS using main services as architect

AWS Certs: CCP-SSA-DVA-SAP(now)

Thoughts: Exam was way more familiar to me than the Developer Exam. I use very little AWS developer tools but mainly use core AWS services. Neil’s videos were very straightforward, easy to digest, and on point. I was able to watch most of the videos on a plane flight to Vegas.

After video series I started to hit his section based exams, main exam, notes, and followed up with some hands on. I was getting destroyed on some of the exams early on and had to rewatch and research the topics, writing notes. There is a lot of nuance and fine details on the topics, you’ll see this when you take the practice exam. These little details matter.

Bonso’s exam were nothing less than awesome as per usual. Same difficulty and quality as Neil Davis. Followed the same routine with section based followed by final exam. I believe Neil said to aim for 80’s on his final exams to sit for the exam. I’d agree because that’s where I was hitting a week before the exam (mid 80’s). Both Neil and Jon exams were on par with exam difficulty if not a shade more difficult.

The exam itself was very straightforward. My experience is the questions were not overly verbose and were straight to the point as compared to the practice exams I took. I was able to quickly narrow down the questions and make a selection. Flagged 8 questions along the way and had 30min to review all my answers. Unlike some people, I didn’t feel like it was a brain melter and actually enjoyed the challenge. Maybe I’m a sadist who knows.

Advice: Follow Neil’s plan, bone up on weak areas and be confident. These questions have a pattern based upon the domain. Doing the practice exams enough will allow you to see the pattern and then research will confirm your suspicions. You can pass this exam!

Good luck to those preparing now and god speed.

AWS Developer Associate DVA-C01 Exam Prep

Passed DVA-C01

Passed the certified developer associate this week.

Primary study was Stephane Maarek’s course on Udemy.

I also used the Practice Exams by Stephane Maarek and Abhishek Singh.

I used Stephane’s course and practice exams for the Solutions Architect Associate as well, and find his course does a good job preparing you to pass the exams.

The practice exams were more challenging than the actual exam, so they are a good gauge to see if you are ready for the exam.

Haven’t decided if I’ll do another associate level certification next or try for the solutions architect professional.

Cleared AWS Certified Developer – Associate (DVA-C01)

 

I cleared Developer associate exam yesterday. I scored 873.
Actual Exam Exp: More questions were focused on mainly on Lambda, API, Dynamodb, cloudfront, cognito(must know proper difference between user pool and identity pool)
3 questions I found were just for redis vs memecached (so maybe you can focus more here also to know exact use case& difference.) other topic were cloudformation, beanstalk, sts, ec2. Exam was mix of too easy and too tough for me. some questions were one liner and somewhere too long.

Resources: The main resources I used was udemy. Course of Stéphane Maarek and practice exams of Neal Davis and Stéphane Maarek. These exams proved really good and they even helped me in focusing the area which I lacked. And they are up to the level to actual exam, I found 3-4 exact same questions in actual exam(This might be just luck ! ). so I feel, the course of stephane is more than sufficient and you can trust it. I have achieved solution architect associate previously so I knew basic things, so I took around 2 weeks for preparation and revised the Stephen’s course as much as possible. Parallelly I gave the mentioned exams as well, which guided me where to focus more.

Thanks to all of you and feel free to comment/DM me, if you think I can help you in anyway for achieving the same.

Another Passed Associate Developer Exam (DVA-C01)

Already had passed the Associate Architect Exam (SA-C03) 3 months ago, so I got much more relaxed to the exam, I did the exam with Pearson Vue at home with no problems. Used Adrian Cantrill for the course together with the TD exams.

Studied 2 weeks a 1-2 hours since there is a big overlap with the associate architect couse, even tho the exam has a different approach, more focused on the Serverless side of AWS. Lots of DynamoDB, Lambda, API Gateway, KMS, CloudFormation, SAM, SSO, Cognito (User Pool and Identity Pool), and IAM role/credentials best practices.

I do think in terms of difficulty it was a bit easier than the Associate Architect, maybe it is made up on my mind as it was my second exam so I went in a bit more relaxed.

Next step is going for the Associate Sys-Ops, I will use Adrian Cantrill and Stephane Mareek courses as it is been said that its the most difficult associate exam.

Passed the Security Specialty

Passed Security Specialty yesterday.

Resources used were:

Adrian (for the labs), Jon (For the Test Bank),

Total time spent studying was about a week due to the overlap with the SA Pro I passed a couple weeks ago.

Now working on getting Networking Specialty before the year ends.

My longer term goal is to have all the certs by end of next year.

 

Advanced Networking - Specialty

Advanced Networking – Specialty

Passed AWS Certified advanced networking – Specialty ANS-C01 2 days ago

 

This was a tough exam.

Here’s what I used to get prepped:

Exam guide book by Kam Agahian and group of authors – this just got released and has all you need in a concise manual, it also included 3 practice exams, this is a must buy for future reference and covers ALL current exam topics including container networking, SD-WAN etc.

Stephane Maarek’s Udemy course – it is mostly up-to-date with the main exam topics including TGW, network firewall etc. To the point lectures with lots of hands-on demos which gives you just what you need, highly recommended as well!

Tutorial Dojos practice tests to drive it home – this helped me get an idea of the question wording, so I could train myself to read fast, pick out key words, compare similar answers and build confidence in my knowledge.

Crammed daily for 4 weeks (after work, I have a full time job + family) and went in and nailed it. I do have networking background (15+ years) and I am currently working as a cloud security engineer and I’m working with AWS daily, especially EKS, TGW, GWLB etc.

For those not from a networking background – it would definitely take longer to prep.

Good luck!

Passed AZ-900, SC-900, AI-900, and DP-900 within 6 weeks!

 
Achievement Celebration

What an exciting journey. I think AZ-900 is the hardest probably because it is my first Microsoft certification. Afterwards, the others are fair enough. AI-900 is the easiest.

I generally used Microsoft Virtual Training Day, Cloud Ready Skills, Measureup and John Savill’s videos. Having built a fundamental knowledge of the Cloud, I am planning to do AWS CCP next. Wish me luck!

Passed Azure Fundamentals

 
Learning Material

Hi all,

I passed my Azure fundamentals exam a couple of days ago, with a score of 900/1000. Been meaning to take the exam for a few months but I kept putting it off for various reasons. The exam was a lot easier than I thought and easier than the official Microsoft practice exams.

Study materials;

  • A Cloud Guru AZ-900 fundamentals course with practice exams

  • Official Microsoft practice exams

  • MS learning path

  • John Savill’s AZ-900 study cram, started this a day or two before my exam. (Highly Recommended) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tQp1YkB2Tgs&t=4s

Will be taking my AZ-104 exam next.

John Savill’s AZ-104 Exam Cram + Master Class Tutorials Dojo Practice Exams

John’s content is the best out there right now for this exam IMHO. I watched the cram, then the entire master class, followed by the cram again.

The Tutorials Dojo practice exams are essential. Some questions on the actual exam where almost word-for-word what I saw on the exam.

Question:

What’s everyone using for the AZ-305? Obviously, already using John’s content, and from what I’ve read the 305 isn’t too bad.

Thoughts?

Passed the AZ-140 today!!

I passed the (updated?) AZ-140, AVD specialty exam today with an 844. First MS certification in the bag!

Edited to add: This video series from Azure Academy was a TON of help.

Achievement Celebration

I am pretty proud of this one. Databases are an area of IT where I haven’t spent a lot of time, and what time I have spent has been with SQL or MySQL with old school relational databases. NoSQL was kinda breaking my brain for a while.

Study Materials:

  1. Microsoft Virtual Training Day, got the voucher for the free exam. I know several people on here said that was enough for them to pass the test, but that most certainly was not enough for me.

  2. Exampro.co DP-900 course and practice test. They include virtual flashcards which I really liked.

  3. Whizlabs.com practice tests. I also used the course to fill in gaps in my testing.

Achievement Celebration

Huge thanks to this subreddit for helping me kick start my Azure journey. I have over 2 decades of experience in IT and this is my 3rd Azure certification as I already have AZ-900 and DP-900.

Here’s the order in which I passed my AWS and Azure certifications:

SAA>DVA>SOA>DOP>SAP>CLF|AZ-900>DP-900>AI-900

I have no plans to take this certification now but had to as the free voucher is expiring in a couple of days. So I started preparing on Friday and took the exam on Sunday. But give it more time if you can.

Here’s my study plan for AZ-900 and DP-900 exams:

  • finish a popular video course aimed at the cert

  • watch John Savill’s study/exam cram

  • take multiple practice exams scoring in 90s

This is what I used for AI-900:

  • Alan Rodrigues’ video course (includes 2 practice exams) 👌

  • John Savill’s study cram 💪

  • practice exams by Scott Duffy and in 28Minutes Official 👍

  • knowledge checks in AI modules from MS learn docs 🙌

I also found the below notes to be extremely useful as a refresher. It can be played multiple times throughout your preparation as the exam cram part is just around 20 minutes.

Just be clear on the topics explained by the above video and you’ll pass AI-900. I advise you to watch this video at the start, middle and end of your preparation. All the best in your exam

Just passed AZ-104

 
Achievement Celebration

I recommend to study networking as almost all of the questions are related to this topic. Also, AAD is a big one. Lots of load balancers, VNET, NSGs.

Received very little of this:

  • Containers

  • Storage

  • Monitoring

I passed with a 710 but a pass is a pass haha.

Used tutorial dojos but the closest questions I found where in the Udemy testing exams.

Regards,

Passed GCP Professional Cloud Architect

Google Professional Cloud Architect Practice Exam 2022
Google Professional Cloud Architect Practice Exam 2022
 

First of all, I would like to start with the fact that I already have around 1 year of experience with GCP in depth, where I was working on GKE, IAM, storage and so on. I also obtained GCP Associate Cloud Engineer certification back in June as well, which helps with the preparation.

I started with Dan Sullivan’s Udemy course for Professional Cloud Architect and did some refresher on the topics I was not familiar with such as BigTable, BigQuery, DataFlow and all that. His videos on the case studies helps a lot to understand what each case study scenario requires for designing the best cost-effective architecture.

In order to understand the services in depth, I also went through the GCP documentation for each service at least once. It’s quite useful for knowing the syntax of the GCP commands and some miscellaneous information.

As for practice exam, I definitely recommend Whizlabs. It helped me prepare for the areas I was weak at and helped me grasp the topics a lot faster than reading through the documentation. It will also help you understand what kind of questions will appear for the exam.

I used TutorialsDojo (Jon Bonso) for preparation for Associate Cloud Engineer before and I can attest that Whizlabs is not that good. However, Whizlabs still helps a lot in tackling the tough questions that you will come across during the examination.

One thing to note is that, there wasn’t even a single question that was similar to the ones from Whizlabs practice tests. I am saying this from the perspective of the content of the questions. I got totally different scenarios for both case study and non case study questions. Many questions focused on App Engine, Data analytics and networking. There were some Kubernetes questions based on Anthos, and cluster networking. I got a tough question regarding storage as well.

I initially thought I would fail, but I pushed on and started tackling the multiple-choices based on process of elimination using the keywords in the questions. 50 questions in 2 hours is a tough one, especially due to the lengthy questions and multiple choices. I do not know how this compares to AWS Solutions Architect Professional exam in toughness. But some people do say GCP professional is tougher than AWS.

All in all, I still recommend this certification to people who are working with GCP. It’s a tough one to crack and could be useful for future prospects. It’s a bummer that it’s only valid for 2 years.

GCP Associate Cloud Engineer Exam Prep

Passed GCP: Cloud Digital Leader

Hi everyone,

First, thanks for all the posts people share. It helps me prep for my own exam. I passed the GCP: Cloud Digital Leader exam today and wanted to share a few things about my experience.

Preparation

I have access to ACloudGuru (AGU)and Udemy through work. I started one of the Udemy courses first, but it was clear the course was going beyond the scope of the Cloud Digital Leader certification. I switched over AGU and enjoyed the content a lot more. The videos were short and the instructor hit all the topics on the Google exam requirements sheet.

AGU also has three – 50 question practices test. The practice tests are harder than the actual exam (and the practice tests aren’t that hard).

I don’t know if someone could pass the test if they just watched the videos on Google Cloud’s certification site, especially if you had no experience with GCP.

Overall, I would say I spent 20 hrs preparing for the exam. I have my CISSP and I’m working on my CCSP. After taking the test, I realized I way over prepared.

Exam Center

It was my first time at this testing center and I wasn’t happy with the experience. A few of the issues I had are:

– My personal items (phone, keys) were placed in an unlocked filing cabinet

– My desk are was dirty. There were eraser shreds (or something similar) and I had to move the keyboard and mouse and brush all the debris out of my work space

– The laminated sheet they gave me looked like someone had spilled Kool-Aid on it

– They only offered earplugs, instead of noise cancelling headphones

Exam

My recommendation for the exam is to know the Digital Transformation piece as well as you know all the GCP services and what they do.

I wish you all luck on your future exams. Onto GCP: Associate Cloud Engineer.

Passed the Google Cloud: Associate Cloud Engineer

Hey all, I was able to pass the Google Cloud: Associate Cloud Engineer exam in 27 days.

I studied about 3-5 hours every single day.

I created this note to share with the resources I used to pass the exam.

Happy studying!

Comparison of AWS vs Azure vs Google

Cloud computing has revolutionized the way companies develop applications. Most of the modern applications are now cloud native. Undoubtedly, the cloud offers immense benefits like reduced infrastructure maintenance, increased availability, cost reduction, and many others.

However, which cloud vendor to choose, is a challenge in itself. If we look at the horizon of cloud computing, the three main providers that come to mind are AWS, Azure, and Google cloud. Today, we will compare the top three cloud giants and see how they differ. We will compare their services, specialty, and pros and cons. After reading this article, you will be able to decide which cloud vendor is best suited to your needs and why.

History and establishment

AWS

AWS is the oldest player in the market, operating since 2006. Here’s a brief history of AWS and how computing has changed. Being the first in the cloud industry, it has gained a particular advantage over its competitors. It offers more than 200+ services to its users. Some of its notable clients include:

  • Netflix
  • Expedia
  • Airbnb
  • Coursera
  • FDA
  • Coca Cola

Azure

Azure by Microsoft started in 2010. Although it started four years later than AWS, it is catching up quite fast. Azure is Microsoft’s public cloud platform which is why many companies prefer to use Azure for their Microsoft-based applications. It also offers more than 200 services and products. Some of its prominent clients include:

  • HP
  • Asus
  • Mitsubishi
  • 3M
  • Starbucks
  • CDC (Center of Disease Control) USA
  • National health service (NHS) UK

Google

Google Cloud also started in 2010. Its arsenal of cloud services is relatively smaller compared to AWS or Azure. It offers around 100+ services. However, its services are robust, and many companies embrace Google cloud for its specialty services. Some of its noteworthy clients include:

  • PayPal
  • UPS
  • Toyota
  • Twitter
  • Spotify
  • Unilever

Market share & growth rate

If you look at the market share and growth chart below, you will notice that AWS has been leading for more than four years. Azure is also expanding fast, but it is still has a long way to go to catch up with AWS.

However, in terms of revenue, Azure is ahead of AWS. In Q1 2022, AWS revenue was $18.44 billion; Azure earned $23.4 billion, while Google cloud earned $5.8 billion.

Availability Zones (Data Centers)

When comparing cloud vendors, it is essential to see how many regions and availability zones are offered. Here is a quick comparison between all three cloud vendors in terms of regions and data centers:

AWS

AWS operates in 25 regions and 81 availability zones. It offers 218+ edge locations and 12 regional edge caches as well. You can utilize the edge location and edge caches in services like AWS Cloudfront and global accelerator, etc.

Azure

Azure has 66 regions worldwide and a minimum of three availability zones in each region. It also offers more than 116 edge locations.

Google

Google has a presence in 27 regions and 82 availability zones. It also offers 146 edge locations.

Although all three cloud giants are continuously expanding. Both AWS and Azure offer data centers in China to specifically cater for Chinese consumers. At the same time, Azure seems to have broader coverage than its competitors.

Comparison of common cloud services

Let’s look at the standard cloud services offered by these vendors.

Compute

Amazon’s primary compute offering is EC2 instances, which are very easy to operate. Amazon also provides a low-cost option called “Amazon lightsail” which is a perfect fit for those who are new to computing and have a limited budget. AWS charges for EC2 instances only when you are using them. Azure’s compute offering is also based on virtual machines. Google is no different and offers virtual machines in Google’s data centers. Here’s a brief comparison of compute offerings of all three vendors:

Storage

All three vendors offer various forms of storage, including object-based storage, cold storage, file-based storage, and block-based storage. Here’s a brief comparison of all three:

Database

All three vendors support managed services for databases. They also offer NoSQL as well as document-based databases. AWS also provides a proprietary RDBMS named “Aurora”, a highly scalable and fast database offering for both MySQL and PostGreSQL. Here’s a brief comparison of all three vendors:

Comparison of Specialized services

All three major cloud providers are competing with each other in the latest technologies. Some notable areas of competition include ML/AI, robotics, DevOps, IoT, VR/Gaming, etc. Here are some of the key specialties of all three vendors.

AWS

Being the first and only one in the cloud market has many benefits, and Amazon has certainly taken advantage of that. Amazon has advanced specifically in AI and machine learning related tools. AWS DeepLens is an AI-powered camera that you can use to develop and deploy machine learning algorithms. It helps you with OCR and image recognition. Similarly, Amazon has launched an open source library called “Gluon” which helps with deep learning and neural networks. You can use this library to learn how neural networks work, even if you lack any technical background. Another service that Amazon offers is SageMaker. You can use SageMaker to train and deploy your machine learning models. It contains the Lex conversational interface, which is the backbone of Alexa, Lambda, and Greengrass IoT messaging services.

Another unique (and recent) offering from AWS is IoT twinmaker. This service can create digital twins of real-world systems like factories, buildings, production lines, etc.

AWS is even providing a service for Quantum computing called AWS Braket.

Azure

Azure excels where you are already using some Microsoft products, especially on-premises Microsoft products. Organizations already using Microsoft products prefer to use Azure instead of other cloud vendors because Azure offers a better and more robust integration with Microsoft products.

Azure has excellent services related to ML/AI and cognitive services. Some notable services include Bing web search API, Face API, Computer vision API, text analytics API, etc.

Google

Google is the current leader of all cloud providers regarding AI. This is because of their open-source Google library TensorFlow, the most popular library for developing machine learning applications. Vertex AI and BigQueryOmni are also beneficial services offered lately. Similarly, Google offers rich services for NLP, translation, speech, etc.

Pros and Cons

Let’s summarize the pros and cons for all three cloud vendors:

AWS

Pros:

  • An extensive list of services
  • Huge market share
  • Support for large businesses
  • Global reach

Cons:

  • Pricing model. Many companies struggle to understand the cost structure. Although AWS has improved the UX of its cost-related reporting in the AWS console, many companies still hesitate to use AWS because of a perceived lack of cost transparency

Azure

Pros:

  • Excellent integration with Microsoft tools and software
  • Broader feature set
  • Support for open source

Cons:

  • Geared towards enterprise customers

Google

Pros:

  • Strong integration with open source tools
  • Flexible contracts
  • Good DevOps services
  • The most cost-efficient
  • The preferred choice for startups
  • Good ML/AI-based services

Cons:

  • A limited number of services as compared to AWS and Azure
  • Limited support for enterprise use cases

Career Prospects

Keen to learn which vendor’s cloud certification you should go for ? Here is a brief comparison of the top three cloud certifications and their related career prospects:

AWS

As mentioned earlier, AWS has the largest market share compared to other cloud vendors. That means more companies are using AWS, and there are more vacancies in the market for AWS-certified professionals. Here are main reasons why you would choose to learn AWS:

Azure

Azure is the second largest cloud service provider. It is ideal for companies that are already using Microsoft products. Here are the top reasons why you would choose to learn Azure:

  • Ideal for experienced user of Microsoft services
  • Azure certifications rank among the top paying IT certifications
  • If you’re applying for a company that primarily uses Microsoft Services

Google

Although Google is considered an underdog in the cloud market, it is slowly catching up. Here’s why you may choose to learn GCP.

  • While there are fewer job postings, there is also less competition in the market
  • GCP certifications rank among the top paying IT certifications

Most valuable IT Certifications

Keen to learn about the top paying cloud certifications and jobs? If you look at the annual salary figures below, you can see the average salary for different cloud vendors and IT companies, no wonder AWS is on top. A GCP cloud architect is also one of the top five. The Azure architect comes at #9.

Which cloud certification to choose depends mainly on your career goals and what type of organization you want to work for. No cloud certification path is better than the other. What matters most is getting started and making progress towards your career goals. Even if you decide at a later point in time to switch to a different cloud provider, you’ll still benefit from what you previously learned.

Over time, you may decide to get certified in all three – so you can provide solutions that vary from one cloud service provider to the next.

Don’t get stuck in analysis-paralysis! If in doubt, simply get started with AWS certifications that are the most sought-after in the market – especially if you are at the very beginning of your cloud journey. The good news is that you can become an AWS expert when enrolling in our value-packed training.

    by /u/b-panchi (Microsoft Azure Certifications) on February 28, 2024 at 1:03 pm

    Hi All, Just wanted to share my happiness of getting a cloud job after getting certs and work experience! April 1st im officially starting as a M365 technical consultant, which means I will work in a project group and work together with the team on projects where we will assist companies with migrating to hybrid cloud, setting up exchange servers, configuring M365 products and even setting up their networks. The company knows I've only got 4 years of experience in helpdesk and that I've build a migration project from on prem to hybrid in Azure for my internship when I was still in school. The company im going to work for wants to help me progress further in my career and will assist me further with my AZ-104 skills and help me get more knowledge in networking aswell! The only downside is that I now have a daily commute of 50 minutes (100 going to and back from work) but even there they are really flexible where I dont have set working hours but can start somewhere between 7am and 9:30am. My only experience in cloud is my internship and the fundamentals cert. submitted by /u/b-panchi [link] [comments]

  • Why is the answer 'Resource locks'? (AZ-900)
    by /u/Master-S (Microsoft Azure Certifications) on February 28, 2024 at 3:09 am

    ​ AFAIK -- Resource locks are "CanNotDelete' and 'ReadOnly' -- which prevent deletion and modification only , respectively (AFIK). Can a resource lock really prevent resource creation? Is the right answer really "Resource locks"? ​ https://preview.redd.it/30i0wibcs8lc1.png?width=596&format=png&auto=webp&s=70810e3c0fcd9ccdb773d088b4134038f6409653 submitted by /u/Master-S [link] [comments]

  • Passed Az-104 with 709 😁
    by /u/mrfast1 (Microsoft Azure Certifications) on February 27, 2024 at 7:26 pm

    The exam proved to be quite challenging, but the Tutorials Dojo practice tests were immensely helpful. I consistently scored between 50-65% on TD (The most important part is to read carefully and understand the correction of every question), and interestingly, several of their questions appeared in the actual exam, causing a momentary jump each time. Despite being a full-time employee, I dedicated around a month and a half to study, concluding with a score of 709. Waking up at 5:00 AM to learn before work became a routine, as I understood the importance of utilizing my morning energy before fatigue sets in by the end of the day. My study resources included a Udemy course by Scott Duffy, Microsoft Learning, Az-104 Labs on Github Pages, John Saville's exam cram V2 on YouTube, and, of course, Tutorials Dojo practice exams. Best of luck guys 💚 submitted by /u/mrfast1 [link] [comments]

  • Career paths/What to do next?
    by /u/Yak420 (Microsoft Azure Certifications) on February 27, 2024 at 2:59 pm

    Greetings All! I'm just looking for some direction in what to do next as far as certs/ jobs go. I recently passed the Az-104, (yay me) however the company I work for doesn't use Azure in the slightest other than AAD. The issue here is I can't get the job experience with the other solutions Azure has unless I build a lab environment on my own, is this enough to count as experience? Should I find an entry level job first just to get some hands on? On the other hand, I don't know what cert I want next. We currently use FortiGates and there is only 1 guy here who administers them, and I would like to get some certs with them just to help when he's gone. However, I don't want to work on everything we have, so should I just go full Azure/cloud certs and master a couple things or keep expanding my knowledge base and just have general knowledge of systems, I like where I work but I don't ever see them using the things I want to work with so job hopping might be in my future. To those of you who have cloud administrator jobs, what are your duties? Do you work on multiple systems or is it more specialized work based on your knowledge? If I just pick something in Azure and master it, could I just do that on a daily basis if I find the right job? Really any input is appreciated, sorry if I'm all over the place I really just don't want to keep earning certs and then have nothing to show for it or even put them to use. ​ submitted by /u/Yak420 [link] [comments]

  • SC-100 lab environments?
    by /u/diminished_fifth (Microsoft Azure Certifications) on February 27, 2024 at 2:27 pm

    What are folks using for lab environments or hands-on for Azure certifications when the companies they work for have a locked down Entra / Azure environment? It has been a while since I last got certified (MCSE/MCSA days) and back then I would be able to get a subscription to TechNet, then VisualStudio to get my own copies of on-prem server. I see a free version of Azure, kinda, but it doesn't look like it would have all the things I'd need to have hands-on lab experience for the training materials. How are folks handling that? Are the materials and training videos enough to pass these exams? Thanks! submitted by /u/diminished_fifth [link] [comments]

  • AZ-305 Exam prep
    by /u/User377373 (Microsoft Azure Certifications) on February 27, 2024 at 1:10 pm

    Hey everyone, Back in December 2023, I successfully passed the AZ-104 exam, and now I'm gearing up for the AZ-305. I've been diligently preparing since the beginning of this month, following the MS Learn path and leveraging study materials like John Savill's study cram. Additionally, I've been practicing with TD's practice exams and have been scoring well. However, I'm wondering if relying solely on TD exams is sufficient to gauge my readiness for the actual AZ-305 exam. Would love to hear your thoughts and experiences on whether TD exams accurately reflect the level of preparedness needed for the real deal. Thanks in advance for any insights you can provide! submitted by /u/User377373 [link] [comments]

  • Passed AZ-900 with a 921 (as an Azure noob)
    by /u/rubyrof (Microsoft Azure Certifications) on February 27, 2024 at 12:11 pm

    Just passed today with a score of 921! ​ I didn't watch any John Savill as I didn't like his teaching/speaking style. Instead: ​ MS Learn - made notes on every page This might be crazy behaviour, but I added terrible drawings to my notes to help me remember them. I found drawing the concepts helped a lot Quizlet - made one for ~160 key words and used the Learn mode Practice tests - this was key for me - some of the questions were almost exactly the same. I personally used Tutorials Dojo ($12) ​ I recommend not skipping the practical labs in MS Learn. Some of the exam questions had a mockup of the Azure UI and asked me to click on the category I'd use to access a resource (e.g. resource locks). Totally threw me off! submitted by /u/rubyrof [link] [comments]

    Hello, I passed AZ-400 on Saturday. I also already have the followings certs: - AZ-900 - AZ-204 - AI-900 (I passed this one just quick reading the MS path, without "studying" it nor doing mock exams) I started today MS path for AI-102, firsts 2 parts (2/7) were super easy, nothing to actually study . Is it all like this? Tell me about your experience with AI-102 cert, how did you study, how much did you study, what's your opinion about it, specially related to other exams. Thank you! 🙂 submitted by /u/Forward_Ad_1606 [link] [comments]

What is the AWS Certified Developer Associate Exam?

The AWS Certified Developer – Associate examination is intended for individuals who perform a development role and have one or more years of hands-on experience developing and maintaining an AWS-based application. It validates an examinee’s ability to:

  • Demonstrate an understanding of core AWS services, uses, and basic AWS architecture best practices
  • Demonstrate proficiency in developing, deploying, and debugging cloud-based applications using AWS

There are two types of questions on the examination:

  • Multiple-choice: Has one correct response and three incorrect responses (distractors).
  • Provide implementation guidance based on best practices to the organization throughout the lifecycle of the project.

Select one or more responses that best complete the statement or answer the question. Distractors, or incorrect answers, are response options that an examinee with incomplete knowledge or skill would likely choose. However, they are generally plausible responses that fit in the content area defined by the test objective. Unanswered questions are scored as incorrect; there is no penalty for guessing.

To succeed with the real exam, do not memorize the answers below. It is very important that you understand why a question is right or wrong and the concepts behind it by carefully reading the reference documents in the answers.
