PASSED AWS CSA

1. Follow Thomases great course. (with the exception of if you are already an experienced AWS user, do the exam first to find out where your knowledge gaps are)
2. Do labs, and use cloud assessments.
2. Do the mock exam, and read up on every single question you get wrong.  Don't just learn the answer, but why it is wrong/right. Read some white papers to back up and reinforce knowledge. But only read the first 5-10% so you grasp the principle.  There is so much more to learn.

4. Be aware of the language in the questions, its designed to catch you out. Many questions I got wrong is because I misunderstood. 

My exam had a question with clearly 2 correct answers when I could only pick one!! which one was correct? or if I got it correct ill never know! Other questions on CORS, mobile API and opsworks were a little confusing, i don't think they were covered in the course, but I could be wrong. However, they prove why you need general principles.

To Linux Academy. More mock exams are needed to extract and home in on knowledge and language. Sometimes its very difficult to realise what you don't know until it's framed in a question.

    Fantastic news! As far as the pro exam, although I do not have direct experience, from what I am able to discern for the AWS crowd, it is a tough exam.
