Certified Developer Associate Passed!

I took the Developer Associate last Friday and sucessfully passed the exam. I studied for about 2 months 3 hours per day.

A little background I've been using AWS for almost 4 years now, I am working heavily with EC2, VPC, S3 and RDS daily at work. Having the experience in AWS helped but is not enough to pass the certs you need to broaden your knowledge took some courses because there are many stuffs to learn.

The questions that I've got are heavily focused on serverless, Lambda, API Gateway, Cognito, Elastic Beanstalk, ECS/ECR, Cloudfront, S3, EC2, Kinesis, DynamoDB and IAM and its relationships with all services. Aside from this there are few questions on Codebuild, Codedeploy and X-ray. For those who are studying for this cert you need to focus and dive a little bit deeper on this topics that I mentioned above the most since you will encounter lots of this on the exam.

My main training materials for this cert are as follows:

Linux Academy - I had a monthly subscription to this to save money. The course was good and with quality lectures. Videos and Hand on labs are great.

Stephane Maarek - Content is awesome and very detailed. He provides course slides which I like and it saves me time from taking notes. I also had taken up his practice tests but I found them very easy.

Jon Bonso Udemy - The practice exam by Bonso is harder than the actual exam IMO and it's the closest one. I barely passed this tests. This prepared me for the actual exam and wouldn't have passed if I had not taken this. If you are planning to study Developer Associate then this is a must course to have.

Additional resources:





Some Tips to share:

-Read the additional resources to have a bird's eye view on all the topics and resources relevant to the exam. Also you can find here the topics left out or not encountered in each of your training materials.

-As I said before on my SA P\passed post read all the reviews and feedback other students had posted on all the AWS sites because you will find lots of tips, notes and valuable information to help you aced the exam.

-A week before your schedule review your weakest areas, take the practice tests repeatedly and a day before the exam it's important to have a rest.

-During the exam do not rush, read carefully and look for clues/keywords to helped you find the right answer.

  • ECS
  • Elastic Cache
  • Cloud Formation

That's unfortunate. I began to doubt Linux Academy's curriculum when I was doing the Jon Bonso practice tests for SA, and realized how many thing had never been taught. I think I might use this to supplement my learning.

Designing Data-Intensive Applications serves as a good overview from a system design level

Learning Spark provides a good intro to Spark


As far as the hands on work of creating a cluster, taking down nodes etc I personally found this Udemy Course for the AWS Certified Developer helpful. Im not connivence that the certification it self is worth it, but I definitely learned a lot about the AWS eco system through the process.

Get this course. Stephane Maarek AWS Developer Course. This course is self-sufficient to pass. No need to go through any whitepapers or anything else. Complement this course with these practice tests, Neal Davis AWS Developer Practice Exams or Jon Bonso AWS Developer Practice Exams. Finish off the course, attempt the practice exams, analyze the questions / areas where you went wrong. Again go through those portions in Stephane's course where you made mistakes during exams. Once you are able to pass in the exams (more than 72 % ) in either one, you are good to go for the AWS Developer exam.
