Passed AWS -Solutions Architect Associate today!

I passed my AWS - Solution Architect Associate exam today with an 87%.  

I took 3 weeks off, and hit the material hard with the goal of passing the test before I go back to work.  My prep consisted of:
- the LinuxAcademy course
- reading a few of the whitepapers (Well-Architected Framework, Storage Services, Security, etc)
- watching a few Re:Invent videos (notably "Scaling to 10M users").
- Practice exams (I paid extra for the Whizlabs ones)
- (Most Important!!!) working through all the LinuxAcademy labs over and over until you can do the stuff without the pdf to guide you.

Thank you Thomas and Anthony for putting together an awesome course.  I have some feedback for the refresh (add more API Gateway, and maybe a section on cost savings).  

Now its on to the next one, and I'll be using Linux Academy for my quest to get 5/7.

    That's really terrific, John - both your passing the exam (of course!) and your detailed "how I did it." Very helpful all round - keep up the great work!

    Congratulations John! Thanks for sharing!

    I’d love to endorse/recommend you on LinkedIn if you want. All you have to do is add me as a connection and add Linux Academy as your school. Once you do that, post a picture of your cert about passing in your feed and reference me within the original post. Once I see this, I’ll be able to recommend you for your hard work on your LinkedIn profile.

    Thanks,

    Anthony
