Passed the AWS-CSA Pro at Re:Invent!

Thanks again, guys!  I really couldn't have done it without you.


I did the boot camp on Monday of Re:Invent... for me, it didn't do much to add to my existing prep work.  I think it would have helped earlier on.

Funny story - at least now its funny... After all the worry and stress and anticipation -- I go to the testing center on Wednesday of the conference, and they can't find my exam registration.  I give them my confirmation code -- and she tells me: "Oh, you were scheduled for YESTERDAY!"

Thankfully, they figured out a way for me to take the exam and I passed.  With an 87!!! <- I was shocked when I saw this... I expected more like a 65.

Notes:
  • Every you've heard about the practice exam being MUCH harder / confusing than the real exam is true.
  • Time management is CRITICAL -- I felt like I was focused, and kept up the pace -- and still only had about 15 minutes to spare.
