I am happy to share that i passed Google cloud architect exam today. I prepared for about 3 weeks and went through GCP cources part 1,2 and 3. I found that the courses were helpful in narrowing the scope of preparation for the exam and the practice tests are a good resrouce too. One thing i noticed today in the exam that almost 60 to 70% of questions were related to the case studies. And instead of 2 , i got questions from 3 case studies. There were no straight forward distinct answer choices to choose from , rather the choices were very nuanced. My overall impression of the exam was that i thought it was bit more difficult than i originally thought it would be. I am glad i passed but i feel that i have lot more to learn when it comes to GCP product offerings :) Good luck to everyone else.
