Hi Community! I passed the CSA SAA last week. I got 80%

I would like to share my experience:
1. Don't just rely on the course and final exam (even though you pass with 90+ all 3 times). 
2.  Read the White Paper/s and do read the FAQ for most core services (EC2, S3, VPC, Auto-scalling, ELB, etc.). Most questions are ditto from the FAQs. 
3. Don't take the low hanging fruit services, such as Redshift, SQS, Kinesis, EMR lighlty. I would say at least know the difference and use cases as I had at least 12-15 question about them combined. 
4.  Not to advertise but if you can spare additional $20-40 bucks, then buy practice test from AWS and whizlabs.com  to get to know the different variations of exams. 

Good Luck community!! you can do it!

    Congratulations Kayur!

    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
