Passing the AWS Certified Solutions Architect – Associate

After much study I passed the AWS Certified Solutions Architect!

Materials used:
Udemy DolfinED CSA – 84 hours
Udemy Practice Exams – 6 exams
A Cloud Guru

Most Helpful:
Taking a practice exam a day
Studying incorrect answers to know my own weaknesses and watching videos about the questions I missed

What I found not very helpful:
Cloud Guru seems overhyped. It’s good for maybe cloud practioner level but not enough content to pass a practice exam on its own.
