Passed the AWS-CSAA

Thank you LA & thank you  @braun0  for the great course and material, it was really helpful :)  It helped me get the CSAA in just 1 month of studies. I passed the exam just 8 hours ago and got 89%, I got 100% on the implementation and deployment section thanks to the live labs and cloud assessment labs :)

I lost most points on troubleshooting section it seems as i scored 60% on it and only cause I was caught off guard by the questions I was asked ( troubleshooting a cloudfront distribution !!!)

Many questions were very straightforward and simple to answer (Read the AWS WHITEPAPERS it is a must to keep in mind what each AWS service does, including ones not mentioned in the course here!!) while several questions were quite tricky and gave 2 closely similar, use the "tactic" of elimination and eliminate the obviously wrong answers.

I will give one last major and important advice to everyone planning to do the test and I cannot stress this enough..... READ THE AWS FAQs !!!  It is essential and do not leave any doubt in your mind without answering it ...  one "exam-ple" ;) ... how does spot instances billing work if I terminate an instance? what if AWS terminates it due to market bid price changes?

Good luck to everyone, I enjoyed learning AWS although studying for the exam was not very enjoyable (I hate memorising things, everyone should learn from Linux Academy and make exams more about hands-on practical work!!!) . This is only the beginning and I am planning to really dive into AWS as I move into the Cloud/DevOps field of work :)

    Congratulations Ahmad!

    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
