Passed AWS SysOps with a 95%

I completed the SysOps exam on Tuesday which closes out the associate level exams for me.   


Overall Score: 95%

Topic Level Scoring:

1.0  Monitoring and Metrics: 100%

2.0  High Availability: 100%

3.0  Analysis: 100%

4.0  Deployment and Provisioning: 71%

5.0  Data Management: 100%

6.0  Security: 100%

7.0  Networking: 100%


It was my fourth certication so it was definately harder than the developer exam by a wide margin, but I feel like it was easier than SAA, but that may be because I did SAA first when I didn't know as much.  

I know what 3 questions I got wrong on the deployment and provisioning section.  

Opworks - know inside and out how to add a DB instance whether that is RDS or a DB running on EC2 to a stack. I do feel like this is an area the course could be improved in.  I knew going it I was going to get an Opsworks question and I had studied up on it but this one was are more detailed on the nitty gritty of actually dong the configuration and it was a pick multiples question so I could rule some of the answers in or out based on test taking skills,but not enough. 

System Manager - I should have known this one if you read the FAQ the answer was there. 

The third one I know I missed was a split DNS masquarading as a route 53 question which was masquarading as a CloudFormation template question.  

Thanks, Jon

Nice job - it's interesting the questions you had. I did the BETA sysops this week for info reasons and they have changed the style a lot. Opsworks barely featured - an understanding is still needed, but it wasnt as indepth as i remember in my original SYSOPS

 @acantril interesting on the beta. I thought about taking it versus the old one but in the end getting the score immediately over having to wait won out. 
I did enjoy your blog posts on the 3 associate  exams  and am eagerly awaiting the pro level blog posts.
