Thanks guys! I just passed the AWS SSA (feb 2018 release) and the course provided by Linux Academy was key to my success! In my case almost all questions were scenario based and as an architect you should recommend the best solution based on the principles designs and definitions published by aws in the well architected framework whitepaper. For anyone taking the exam I would recommend 1) Read all whitepapers very carefully and 2) take the aws practice exam. Reading whitepapes and doing the practice exam helped me a lot to build up some confidence and made me feel very comfortable when I was taking the exam. Once again I would like to thanks Linux Academy for the great course!
