Hello, I just want to share with you the fact that I cleared the AWS Cloud practitioner today from HOME, Thank you for the practice exam!!! a lot of questions were about security/Billing so I recommend taking the section questions before taking the practice exam 1,2 and 3. THANK you again! 😀 😀 😀 😀 😀
Well done!! happy to hear that 😀 😀 . thanks for sharing 👍
Was it hard to pass ?! 🤔
@marcus-m-higgin no I would not say that it was hard ...if you practice a lot it will be easy
Congrats to everyone on passing. I just took it today and passed as well. For anyone else reading, the AWSBoy topics are pretty representative of what you'll see.
For Billing, make sure to know the difference between Budgets, Cost Explorer, TCO, Simple Monthly Calculator, etc. They will try to throw some tricks in to confuse you on these. My opinion is that this was weighted far too heavily for how much impact this has on a customer's actual AWS usage.
For Security, make sure you understand IAM, Shared Responsibility Model, VPC Security, AWS WAF, and AWS Shield. I would say Security is covered fairly comprehensively.
For Cloud Concepts, there were a lot of questions about the AWS Pillars, plus the usual capex vs opex stuff.
Now Technology is where things get a little weird. You can get a tossup of literally any of AWS's services. In my particular exam, the products tested leaned heavily toward CloudFront and EC2, about 25% of the entire exam if I had to guess. I was shocked that there was probably only 1 question on S3, and very few database questions despite the wide array of database services AWS offer.
This was just my experience and I think Technology is where the test will differ the most for people. Good luck!
Congrats to all who did it,
I did mine last week and multiple practice exam including AWSBoyPractice Exam did help me achieve a score that was beyond expectation.
Note: The practice exam covered some question that were not covered in other site I took (and the other way), and came back in the exam.
Now I am working on the Architect Associate.
Thanks AWSBoy crew.
@gafrazie I did score 945, with the resource here for AWS for CCP you can score 80 easily if you understand all the concept.
for Architect associate it's different (I barely pass using the exam here + 3 others place and saw different question all over the place)
But my biggest tip for both exam, until you can regularly get 80% in all exam you take (no matter the source), I would not go.
Just completed my CPP exam and passed today! 60-70 just right there with concepts from the practice exams (all three). AWS pillars, customer service, security and billing heavy.
AWSBoy - nice work
Hello, I just want to share that I cleared the AWS Cloud practitioner today, Practice exam helped a lot. My questions were a mix of everything.I highly recommend going through all the whitepapers as well . THANK you again! 😀
Hi @emalabel I also scheduled to take my exam from home. I have two questions:
@sakanet,1) No this will not be an issue as long as you are alone, 2) this will trigger the proctor and against Pearson Vue policy, the microphone should remain active during the exam session, so if you are reading out loud the proctor will be suspicious and he may think that you are cheating.
