Although this was cutting it close, I was very happy with my results since I have no IT experience or background.
One thing I noticed about the exam is that it was 55 questions in 80 minutes instead of 60. I suppose they changed it recently.
The exam was pretty tough, but I used the knowledge learned here and from the AWS practice exam to knock it out. For those upcoming testers, I did not read the whitepapers (except the first two), but did study the flash cards and especially the orion papers.
Some hot topics that came up included:
-Networking and communication between instances (specific to AZ, region, subnet)
