I began my course a little late and had to rush through the objectives and the labs. I never got disappointed despite being late. The practical knowledge and skills about using the AWS platform in providing architecting solutions came in handy. It was easy to understand the course. I would urge anyone preparing for the AWS Certified Solutions Architect – Associate exam to sign up for this course.

I learnt a number of technical areas that included suitable services required for storage of session state data, uploading orders on an S3 bucket, and various Amazon EBS volumes, among others. I remember some of the exam questions were related to these topics.

A great collection of video courses, simulations, and quizzes. Quizzes are mostly my favourite method of revision. I went through them many times until I had thoroughly acquainted myself with the exam objectives. All the topics covered were linked to each other in a way that helped bring out the course requirements and topics.

The architecture course is fantastic. It gave me all I needed to learn more and scale up my knowledge on Cloud computing. Now, I know how to host applications like Joomla and WordPress on the AWS platform. The other areas are the AWS platform elements, such as S3, Cloud Front, Route53, SC3, EC2, and others that I had never known. This is the best way to prepare for an exam. For me I know I will pass my exam that will be in a month
