Passed the AWS Certified Solutions Architect Professional exam!

(2) Read the FAQs of the major services.

(3) Skim the developer guides of the major services.

(4) When taking the exam look at the "ask" part of the question before the first part. In other words, look at what you are being asked to answer and then go read the intro paragraphs. This helped me to use my time more efficiently.

(7) You will need most of the time . I finished about 22 minutes early. I probably should have spent more time reviewing but I was tired and wanted to be done.

(8) It's not over until it's over. I thought for sure I hadn't passed. When my score came up my jaw hit the floor! I

(9) I almost forgot, take the practice exam at least once. Yes, it costs money but it is well worth it.

Thanks, Linux Academy team!
