This course is specifically designed for the aspirants who intend to give the "AWS Solutions Architect - Professional" level certification as well as for those who intend to gain a deeper understanding related to AWS.

One of the pre-requisite for the course is the candidate's prior understanding of the core AWS services. We generally recommend completing the AWS Solutions Architect - Associate video course (knowledge-wise) before starting with the AWS Solutions Architect - Professional. However, this requirement can be ignored if a candidate has working experience on AWS.

There are five primary sections in this course, each section is directly aligned with the official exam blueprint. This course also has an exam preparation section with practice tests to verify if the candidate is ready to give the official certification exams.

Keeping the standards high similar to other best-seller courses of Zeal, this course has a perfect balance and the things are explained in a simplified way with practical scenarios.

With tons of quizzes, great lectures, and fantastic support from the Instructor, this course is all you need to gain a deeper understanding in AWS and master the AWS Solutions Architect Professional certification.

With this interesting set of learnings and practicals, I look forward to seeing you in this course.

Ok presentation and grammar, but the social media call to action at the end of every segment is already getting on my nerves.
June 24, 2022
I liked the pedagogy zeal followed, first demonstrate the usage of the service followed by practical.
February 10, 2022
Very clear in explaining concepts, lecture is thorough followed by hands on to enforce what was explained in lecture. A good well packaged course so far. Would certainly recommend for students preparing for AWS Solution Architect - Professional certification Update : Domain2 - This is all over the place without any direction. This section looks more like collection of modules from other courses. Though still provides useful information, it lacks structure. Not sure if it will help with Certification exam. Update: Domain3 : Looks a bit outdated, this section talks about sending a USB drive to AWS, which has been discontinued for a while, Rest looks good with demonstrations Update Domain4: Good information on EC2 types, which is usually mentioned as footnotes, Zeal takes time to explain the finer points and reinforces with demonstration.

The course content is great, I like being able to speed up the audio and player in the background, but sometimes I find the presenter’s accent a little difficult to understand.
January 27, 2022
The introductory lecture where the lecturer literally READS the Cert overview is NOT helpful and a waste of everyone's time.
November 29, 2021
SA Pro covers huge number of AWS services. Zeal does an excellent job of explaining them as use case scenarios and that helped me a lot in passing (recertifying) this exam. Thank you.
September 25, 2021
Zeal does a great job presenting the material required for the test. The practice quizzes and test can be improved with explanations on the answers. That's the reason why I don't give it a five, though I would give it a4.5 if available
June 11, 2021
Course looks basic for associate exam and not for the Professional exam. Unprepared lectures. Just went through the few topics and wasn't comfortable continuing.
April 13, 2021
Zeal makes sure that important topics are covered and also provided useful tips which are appreciated.
March 19, 2021
The content is good. Request to add AWS Tower Center as well. Really helped in clearing my professional certification.
March 5, 2021
This guy really knows his stuff and he focuses on the areas that are most likely to come up in the exam too. Lots of practical sessions so you really learn the theory behind it all well. Great course!
February 23, 2021
This guy is brilliant. I can't believe some people rated him 1 star because of english. Come on guys! Look at his expertise in the subject. It takes months if not years to get to that level. Great job Zeal!
February 4, 2021
Felt like , course content is beginner courses. Dont know this course will help me to clear Professional exam.
January 28, 2021
Well KMS can be a complex subject, maybe you should have explained from a very high level, and then dialed in, in subsequent chapters/videos
January 28, 2021
Truly a 0 * rated for this course. Too basic, not fit for Professional Exam. I completed my certification on Sol Architect - C02 and wanted to take a course for Sol Arc. Professional Exam and selected this course. I waited till almost the end of the course to put my ratings. I was expecting that this course will be advanced level but totally disappointed by the time it spend to cover the basic concepts ( More then 60 % of the course is Basics. Leaving only 40 % of the time for advanced teaching. This is only good for solution architect C02 and no where good for professional exam. Too Much of it was a waste of training time. The practice quiz and practice test we a further waste of time - There is no explanation for the correct answer and no explanation of the wrong answer. The test is not to test your skills but it should be a teaching / training exercise. Failed totally on that front - I should have given a 0 star for this one. I still rated it at 1.5 because of the efforts spend in explaining the basics in practical way. I don't think you should not waste your time for the professional exam. Sorry if you are reading this after buying the course or after you have completed the course and realized what I am saying is true.
