Studying for the AWS Certified Solution Architect - Associate Certification

I took, and passed (yea!), the exam for the AWS Certified Solutions Architect - Associate certification. I took the exam on June 15th, 2015.

I wanted to start to share some of what I did to prepare for the exam - and hope that others are able to join me! I'm planning on a few posts about this exam, and my preparations - and I'm planning on continuing on with the AWS Certified Solutions Architect - Professional exam soon too, so more posts about that in the near future as well!

Here is a quick list of the main steps I took:

  1. I signed up for the 1 year "Free Tier"
  2. I worked through some of the free labs at QwikLab
  3. I reviewed the exam blueprint and read the suggested whitepapers
  4. I worked through the sample questions offered on the certification site
  5. I took the practice exam offered by AWS/Kryterion
  6. I reviewed various FAQs for the "Products and Services" included in AWS
  7. I used my AWS Account to practice, test and learn things I had questions about
  8. I scheduled my exam with a not so local Kryterion testing center
  9. I took my exam
I'll expand my thoughts about each of these steps in future posts!

Good luck to all who decide to join me in my quest!
