Would have given 5 stars, but Mark Richman directly goes into the concept and does not provide any examples like Ryan Kroonenburg to easily remember the topic, and the course needs practical lessons on SNS, & SQS which are asked more frequently in your practice tests only...

Alejandro8 October 2020

Muy buen curso y bien explicado, sobre todo por Ryan, las lecciones que explica Mark me han costado un poco más. Buen contenido, muy práctico y muy recomendable. No sé otros cursos que habrá por ahí pero este sin duda es EXCELENTE.

Sajid8 October 2020

Very good learning and nice way to explain topics with real life scenarios. Would like to update quiz with some more real life scenario questions.

T7 October 2020

This course lacks flow and complete and pertinent information to pass SAA-C02. There are many mistakes, wrong and/or incomplete labs and explanation. Don't be fouled by the high ratings- these ratings are for when this course was actually good and help you pass the exam. I just wasted 20+ hours.

Jeffrey7 October 2020

Video kept freezing at random points and I would have to either skip forward or refresh the page or else it would not get past the spot it froze on.

Fabio27 February 2020

I really like the pace of this course. Some of the previous courses I took I thought the instructor just wanted to use the minutes but here he is straight to point with lots of hands on.

Sampath26 February 2020

I have followed only this course and happy to say now I'm AWS Certified Solutions Architect - Associate! This course covers all areas need to know for this exam. You just need to do some practise exams after the course. His explanations are clear and accurate. Thanks Again! from Sri Lanka

Carlos26 February 2020

An amazing resource to prepare for the SCA exam and even better, to really understand AWS services and cloud concepts so you can use them on your daily job. Content is really well structured, easy to understand and labs are really helpful. Having the summary review section are really valuable to go over all the content highlights. Exams are a great resource as well, I'd just be a tad careful with some terminology that's not really used by Amazon (like 2 questions or so)

Felipe25 February 2020

In this moment, a think its a very detailed but some videos is very long. Therefore its amount of content very interesting.

Tawfik25 February 2020

excellent guide to AWS for beginners. I will recommend this course to any person preparing for AWS-SAA. But one will need other prep exams to pass the exams. Acloudguru's practice exams alone will not make you pass the exam.

Prasanna24 February 2020

It gave good understanding of AWS resources. Though I felt that to pass the exam, you need to do your own reading along with taking this course.

Courses24 February 2020

The course content is far away from the exams, many things not mentioned detailed enough or not highlighted that it can be an exam question. for sure the course is a good start but not enough to pass the exam.

Shrinivas23 February 2020

Thank You Rayon for detail explanation on the course which is easy to understand the course and this knowledge would help clearing test.

Jacky23 February 2020

Just took the exam this weekend, this course did successful manage to give a high level understandings to prepare for the exam. However, the real exam questions were so much harder than the content of this course. I would suggest to take other practice exams paper alongside this enable to pass the exam. Overall, would recommend this course since it is a good "Starting" point to learn about AWS.

Ali23 February 2020

I am interested in AWS and A Cloud Guru was recommended to be by my friend. Till now introduction was fine. What information needs to be passed was done good.
