Passed SO-A, What do I need to focus on differently for SA-A?

I studied for the SysOps Associate exam first and passed. I am now moving on to Solution Architect Associate. I’m comfortable / familiar with the Sys Ops topics. Which topics are specific to Solution Architect that are not on SysOps that I should focus my time on to pass Solution Architect given that I have the SysOps knowledge already?

Congrats on the pass! I'll let someone who's done both certs suggest what to focus on, I'm still working on the CSA myself.

Congrats, Justin.  

It's really difficult to say "skip this" or "skip that" since you already passed the SysOps exam, because I don't know your exact skill level.  A lot of the IAM, EC2, S3 and CloudWatch components will be redundant.  However, I suggest you review/compare the syllabi for both courses.

Congrats Justin! SysOps Admin is the harder of the two tests. Try the Linux Academy practice exam for SA. You should be in good shape.
