AWS Certified Solutions Architect Associate by Stephane Maarek
The AWS Certified Solutions Architect certification is one of the most challenging exams. It’s great at assessing how well you understand not just AWS, but making sure you are making the best architectural decisions based on situations, which makes this certification incredibly valuable to have and pass. Rest assured, I’ve passed it myself with the score of 982 out of 1000. Yes you read that right, I only made one mistake! Next, I want to help YOU pass the AWS Solutions Architect certification with flying colors.
