Impression I feel that my knowledge of AWS training has increased considerably by learning to obtain certification this time. In particular How to configure your system using AWS services What each AWS service is good at and not good at Best practices on AWS I feel that I can learn such things and can make use of my work. This certification is recommended not only for those who want to obtain certification but also for those who want to increase the knowledge of AWS that can be used in business. It is a test record. AWS history before taking the exam I have been using AWS in earnest for the past year or so. The services we are using are basic services such as EC2, RDS, S3, etc. Most of the time, when I built it, I looked it up and listened to my seniors. Study period It's about a month. What I did before learning 1. Confirm Examination Guidelines You can "Download Exam Guide" from AWS Certified Solutions Architect Associate. Read here 2. Read the section “Preparing for AWS Certification Exam” in the AWS Cloud Service Utilization Documents Preparation for AWS Certification Examination is officially announced by the AWS solutions architect certification, and what you should do for the exam is open to the public. I read it here for reference. But I haven't done everything that is written here. For example, I didn't do "QwikLABS". When I looked at the contents, I didn't do it because it was something I had done during work. Also, we do not take the “Certification Exam Preparation Workshop”. 3. Reading the experiences of other people I read the experiences of other people and used them as references for what to study. Learning (1) ~Reading countermeasure book~ *Hereafter, numbers are attached as learning (1)-. For the time being, I went in numerical order, but in the middle of (3) I did something like (1) once more. First, I read the only countermeasure book. Pass Prep AWS Certified Solutions Architect-Associate This is a lot of learning. The points are organized, and my knowledge of AWS has increased considerably just by reading this. I think this gives me more confidence when working with AWS. After all, I read this countermeasure book three times. I also read the following books. Getting Started with Amazon Web Services (WEB+DB PRESS plus) The first volume may be positioned as a countermeasure book, so each service is not written in great detail. I supplemented my knowledge by reading the second book as well. Learning (2) ~Sample problem~ You can "download sample questions" from an AWS course Certified Solutions Architect Associate. I tried to solve it when I circulated the countermeasure book once. I think it's a good idea to do this as well in order to get the distance. (I am shocked without knowing much.) Learning (3) ~Understanding cloud design patterns~ I learned about cloud design patterns. You can see it on the web, and there are books available. Amazon Web Services Cloud Design Pattern Design Guide Revised Edition It's a lot of learning in the sense of learning use cases. There are more than 50 design patterns and there are many, but each volume is not so large, so I read it quickly. I can make services that I do not know, so I proceeded while checking. Learning (4) ~Learn about each service~ Collection of AWS cloud service utilization documents I took the most time here and learned a lot. Detailed knowledge of each service is complemented here. AWS training. I've read the services EC2, ELB, Auto Scaling, EBS, S3, RDS, DynamoDB, ElastiCache, VPC, Route 53, CloudWatch, CloudTrail, CloudFormation, IAM, SNS/SQS many times. For services other than those listed above, I took a quick look at the pages of the AWS Cloud Service Utilization Reference Book to check the outline and use cases for services that I did not know at all. Learning (5) ~Learn about use cases and best practices~ Of course, knowledge of each service is important, but AWS thinking and actual cases are also important. AWS training. I have read the following usage examples in the AWS Cloud Service Usage Reference Book . Scalable configuration example for Web Services StartUP Encryption solution on AWS Security and compliance on AWS DDoS protection on AWS Architecture Design for the Cloud -Best Practices- In addition, the AWS Summit materials were also helpful. You can refer to AWS Summit Tokyo 2017 session materials/video list such as “Cloud Best Practices with AWS Well-Architected Framework”. Learning (6) ~Read White Paper~ AWS White Paper There are many English ones, but I read some Japanese ones. I read some of the countermeasure books after I read them, but I couldn't quite proceed because I didn't know some services or some people didn't know. After reading about each service and the best practices, I read it quickly. AWS training. By reading the white paper, I think I was able to reaffirm and establish my knowledge. Learning (7) ~Mock test~ You can take a practice test. You can do the same operation as this test, so it is charged, but I think you should take the test. AWS training. I think I'll change the mood of the problem. I reviewed what I didn't understand. You need to register an account, but this account is also required for this exam. In the case of a mock exam, you can take it on your own computer at any time after purchasing the mock exam. Both the time and the number of questions are less than this test. Learning (Extra) ~Paid seminars and training~ I took Architecting on AWS . web hosting in Lahore. The "QwikLABS" I wrote at the beginning also has a range that can be received for free and a range that can be paid. The day before I confirmed the location and property of the test center to take the test on the day. The day Finally, Pass Measures AWS Certified Solutions Architect- I reviewed the end-of-chapter issues that Associates had with me, and I was wondering where I was worried. Learning Method Extra Edition-Study at parents' home- (It's not a big deal...) I wonder if there are many people who just went back to their parents' homes in Obon. After returning home, I went back to Tokyo and took an examination immediately. It's hard to study when you're at home! I thought, Go out two hours before meeting with friends to study outside At home, do things that you can do quickly before going to sleep (think deeply outside) There are problems, and you can see the slides of the cloud collection I tried something like that. I couldn't seem to study hard (I wouldn't) and I was wondering what to do, but I was able to study as much as I wanted. After all, I think it was good that I concentrated on a limited time. I think that I was able to spend time other than the above, such as going out with my family, chatting, and meeting friends. Until now, on holidays, I was enthusiastic about studying for a whole day, and in the end, there were many things I couldn't concentrate on. From now on, I will stop studying for the whole day. Unexpectedly, I was able to review my study style.
