I often get asked this question from professionals who enroll for AWS Solution Architect Certification or other AWS certifications. If you are looking for a cloud computing job, you will need to prepare for a battery of questions that can help you excel at the job interview

Somebody asked me:

“I would like to become an AWS Solution Architect, what do you think are the most commonly asked AWS Architect Interview questions that I will have to answer during my interview?”


So, I decided to list all top AWS interview questions for people who seeking a job and they never had expriences in this area.

I prepared these questions in two parts, the first top AWS interview questions is here: Started
