Sample Practice Test


Vishal29 April 2020

The trainer has clarified all the concepts very well with relatable examples and real-world scenarios.

Sadiq10 April 2020

I watched your free aws solutions architect exam focused video on YouTube, which really explained the concept of high availability, operational excellence, performance optimization, elasticity, read replicas and many others in a way I've never seen. That short video was extremely useful hence why I had to track down a full version of your exam preparation video to use for my exam preparation. It's been great so far, except in a few places. But these are not deal breakers as your video is much more informative, step-wise and explains concepts with such poise and appropriate speed. I was hoping that the topic on database would deal with high availability, read replicas and such, but, as I said, these are not deal breakers.

This is my third AWS Certified Solution Architect Associate Prep course after I did not like the first two and cancelled. Alan is a fantastic instructor. It is refreshing to see him teach concepts VERY CLEARLY on a whiteboard before demos -- which makes learning very good! Thank you Alan!
