AWS Certified Solutions Architect - Associate Notes 2018
Curated documentation/study notes on going through the Udemy, Certified Solutions Archictect - Associate 2018 course. These notes are to help myself, as well as, anyone else going through this same course study and prepare for the exam. Thanks!
My Study Practice
While planning out my study schedule, I felt it would be necessary to watch one section a week, starting with Section 2: 1000 ft overview, followed up by 6 days of review (1 - 2 hours a day) solidifying everything I learned. This seems to work for me but might be either too slow or fast for someone else. That's OK! Learn at your own pace until you feel comfortable with the concepts, practices and information given!
