Why does the AWSBoy Practise Exam ask questions about services not covered in the AWS CCP Essentials course?

First this site is a fantastic resource 😀 

Question I did my first AWSBoy CCP exam (#1) and found some questions were not covered in the aws.training AWS Cloud Practitioner Essentials on-line course, for example there were quite a few questions on services not even mentioned in the before AWS essentials on-line course

Hello @xlinknz

Thanks for your comment; the AWS Cloud Practitioner Essentials online course is not really a certification-oriented course (even if AWS tells you that it is),  it's enough to get you started, and to learn about the core services like S3, IAM, and EC2. The certification course, on the other hand, is supposed to cover more than the core services, on the exam day expect some questions about AWS Macie, AWS KMS & CloudHSM, AWS Config....which I don't think are covered on the Essentials course.

Thank you for the prompt reply!

Note I also asked on your facebook page too

Seems odd that as at the end of the essentials course they ask 30 questions which are topics are only found in the essentials course furthermore the linked guide <a href=" removed link " target="true">here aligns with the essentials course and no one where does it say in the essentials course you do require more knowledge of services not covered!. That said the essentials course does suggest reading the overview of Amazon Web Services whitepaper <a href=" removed link " target="true">here which does include Macie, KMS, CloudHSM etc which I can confirm are not mentioned in the essentials course

BTW do you offer more than 3 practise exams or are the questions in them randomised?

NB: I got 67% on your first one by only using the essentials content but I am very experienced in a lot of the topics i.e. storage, cloud, networks etc
