So I decided to take some time out of my crazy work schedule to get my next AWS certification. I had recently started to write some more Lambda functions and further develop my python skills.
As for the preparation I went through the LinuxAcademy.com videos and just focused on the DynamoDB, S3, SWF and SQS as these were the areas that this exam were more focused on. The AWS fundamentals were a breeze (having gone over them a few times before in the AWS SysOps and Architect exams). I was able to get through the video content in about 2 weeks of lunch breaks and just smashed the practice exams every night for a week.
The exam itself I was able to complete it in 20 minutes flat and scored 98%! Only one question I got wrong (which I think was a a result of me rushing to fast through it). I feel that of the three associate AWS certifications this was the easiest but I still was able to learn a few things. Which is what its all about anyway.
Did I mention I got 98% 🙂 Very pleased with that result!
