Passed AWS Certified Solutions Architect (AS) : Sept. 26

I read the entire official exam prep book (which was slightly out of date, and *very* dry in some areas); additionally, I did all of the LinuxAcademy (~27 hr) course including all hands-on labs and took the end practice test twice with 98% on the last try.  Then, I moved to WhizLabs 7 practice exams online, passed all of them between 80% - 90%, and finally sat the exam on Sept 26.  I cleared all 65 questions in 47 min, 21 seconds [which included 2 questions I marked for review], and passed with 89% percent per my official exam score.  I did all of this without anything more than very light hands-on experience, and wrapped it all up in under a month.  By far, the best prep material was my time spent in LinuxAcademy - suprisingly great material and it kept me interested the entire way!

Congratulations Cristopher!

I’d love to endorse/recommend you on LinkedIn if you want. All you have to do is add me as a connection and add Linux Academy as your school. Once you do that, post a picture of your cert about passing in your feed and reference me within the original post. Once I see this, I’ll be able to recommend you for your hard work on your LinkedIn profile.

Thanks,

Anthony
