So excited to have passed my AWS CSA exam today. A big shout out to Linux Academy for putting the course together, it really helped out in grasping all that AWS has to offer.
My pointers would be understand the different load balancers AWS offers, their features and when/where to use them. I had several LB questions. The other area where I feel I got more than my fair share of questions was on NATs. I had no less 8-10 questions on that alone on either designing them or troubleshooting them. Most of the new items people are talking about I did hit upon however; they were straightforward enough to figure out if you read the questions carefully and go through the process of elimination.
