I obtained my certification on 22/05/2018. A big thank you to the Linux Academy team for their training which was very useful to me.
The only advice I can give:
- Read the white papers and AWS documentation on the different services well: this provides additional information that cannot all be seen with Linux Academy support (it is normal, it is a training support, not an encyclopedia;).
- Use live labs: understanding a service description/definition is good. But using a service often helps to better understand the use/usefulness of a service and these options.
- In my case, having no experience with the cloud and AWS at the beginning, I preferred to see the training as a whole a first time before reflecting/defining/realising a first personal project on AWS (within the limits of the free third) then returning to the training support. You will see, your apprehension of services will no longer be the same.
