I have written detailed notes as I studied for the AWS Solutions Architect Exam SAA-C03 exam and each article is linked in the section below for your review.

The AWS Certifications page has detailed information about the entire AWS suite of exams and certifications.

You can follow along with my notes below in order to help prepare yourself for the difficult SAA-C03 exam. You must already possess the AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner foundational certification or else you will be lost and likely fail the exam.

No matter how you study and prepare for the exam, I strongly suggest that you take the free 3-hour exam prep course that is available for free directly from AWS. My suggestion is to make this the last thing you do before you think you are ready to take the exam. If you don’t feel confident in the materials presented during this training, go back and study your weak areas before attempting the exam.

You can connect with me on LinkedIn to network and be up to date on my latest cloud security thoughts.
