Passed the AWS Security Specialist Exam!

I got the confirmation this afternoon that I had passed the AWS security specialist exam!  The results came out much faster than the May date I heard.   They did not give any indication of your score, passing score or anything else in the email the certification is just in my profile now.  
The test was very challenging much harder than the current security training course on LA.  I spent a lot of time reading white papers and just playing around in IAM, CloudWatch and CloudTrail.  You really need to know logging and auditting to pass.
Thanks, Jon

    Nice! And I think you hit the nail on the head, there: getting in and just trying things is the best way to thoroughly learn the material.

    Thanks all!  Thank you  @xtremebassist for the guidence on finding my score.  I got an 822 out of 1000.  I wish the score report was broken down by section like the CSA-A was so I could see which areas to focus on improving.

    Congratulations Jon!

    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
