Recommended

I totally recommend these practice tests to be fully prepared to take the exam! The questions are very similar to the real exam. Invest in good learning material is always good and this material delivers. I just passed the SAA-C02 exam. These practice exams and explanations were key to understand the exam logic and type of questions the real exam has. The digital training cheat-sheets were also very helpful to understand key concepts without needing to look into the massive AWS documentation. I scored 85-90 in the practice exams on the first attempt and scored 87 in the real exam. If you really want to learn and get the SSA-C02 certification they look no further. You can read and focus on your weak points. Nice material to refer to with a lot of information. Best buy! Highly recommended!

I would strongly recommend it

Having gone through another online self-paced training course on AWS Certified SAA course and been left somewhat bemused and not confident I really got the full picture, this course from Hillary provided a great framework and structure to the understanding of the subject and fully prepared me for the AWS exam.

The book was divided into seven chapters that offer great insight into what you really need to know well and what areas you need to further study. The explanations are extremely helpful and provide and great insight into how the questions are structured and what is being asked, along with the usual gotchas added to confuse you.

The questions definitely help and really allow you to focus on areas for further study. I would strongly recommend this course, the additional training notes and practice questions.

Love it!

Listening to this book will help you overcome your fear of taking the SAA-CO2 exam. The book includes sample questions at the end of each section that closely matches questions appearing in the actual exam. I am very glad I purchased this book which helped me achieve knowledge for passing the SAA-CO2 exam.

The explanations of each of the answers are great. It really allowed me to dive deep into the relative technologies for the C02 without purchasing another book. Once I was prepared, I took the practice tests once more and scored 87 or higher on each on the second attempt. Some of the questions and answers I remembered verbatim, but that's okay because I then understood the tech in question.

Once I completed the second attempt of all tests, I scheduled a proctored exam through Pearson Vue. Took a couple of extra days to review the material in this book. Today, I took the SAA-C02 exam and passed.

Includes challenging questions

AWS Certified Solutions Architect Associate (SAA-C02): AWS Certified Solutions Architect Associate Ultimate Cheat Sheet, Practice Test Questions with Detailed Explanations and Links by Hillary Morrison was my go-to resource during my final phase of preparing for the exam - which I easily passed. The book is a very concise collection of the important facts one needs to know to pass the AWS Certified Solutions Architect Associate exam. It contains a comprehensive amount of material in order to prepare sufficiently for the exam.

The practice tests make you think and learn about areas which you had missed earlier - the excellent explanations helped a lot and fill in the gaps in your knowledge. The range and quality of questions really ensure you familiarize yourself with the key focus areas required for taking the exam. In addition to having realistic exam questions, the explanations provided for each question enhance your learning. This book is well recommended and definitely worth purchasing if you plan on sitting the AWS Certified Solutions Architect Associate exam.

Overall, the best book by my assessment.

Amazing book

I'm taking the AWS Certified Solutions Architect Associate exam in a couple of weeks and I purchased this book so I could get used to the wording and format of the exam questions. It's a pretty thick, good quality book and the answers section gives detailed explanations. Looks like a great resource in preparation for the exam

Extremely useful to pass the exam

This is the second book I bought from this series of books, the first was the AWS certified cloud practitioner practice test and it was very useful to pass my exam. I just started reading this and it seems to follow the same line so I believe will be extremely useful as well. Definitely, something you want to prepare for your exams. These practice tests make you think and learn about areas which you had missed earlier - the excellent explanations helped a lot and fill in the gaps in your knowledge.

Love it!

Love it! This is such a great book containing a great number and variety of exam-like questions. In fact, many people have told me that the actual exam questions are even easier. Not only does it contain real situations and examples, but also provides solutions with detailed explanations that explain the correct answer and the reasons that might cause you to pick a wrong choice.

Thankful to have it

I was thankful to have this book. I took the exam first attempt and failed due to a lack of preparation. I looked around for more resources and found this book. It turned out to be very helpful. The questions are similarly structured to the real exam. They are way more difficult than the actual exam in my opinion, but I like the fact that he provides detailed explanations for each answer. I was able to use this book as well as a couple of other resources to pass my SAA-02 exam.

Thankful that I got this book

I was very thankful that I got this book before the exam. I just passed the SAA-C02 exam with the help of this guide. These practice exams and explanations were key to understand the exam logic and type of questions the real exam has. The digital training cheat-sheets were also very helpful to understand key concepts without needing to look into the massive AWS documentation. I totally recommend these practice tests to be fully prepared to take the exam!

Glad to have it

I have just completed the course through my workplace and I needed something I could use to measure up my knowledge with the exam. So far this book has provided that with the learning from the questions. It also picks up on the "keywords" that are used to show which questions are not relevant to AWS. So if you are looking to practice and learn at the same time along with any courses you are using/completed, I can recommend this book so far. Once I have taken my exam I will update this review with my full conclusions.

Excellent Q & A

I have read many books to prepare for this exam but this question bank is based on actual use cases which will help in understanding actual architectural requirements & solutions. Excellent question formation and answer recommendations. Do not be discouraged if you don't get the score you envisioned. Highly recommended for practice and understanding.

Must-have

A must-have book to study and get knowledge of solution architects. It has more than you need to pass the certification exam. The questions are a bit difficult so that when one takes the real AWS exam they might feel it easy. I strongly suggest trying this before appearing for the real one. Truly accurate.
