Unfortunately I didnt have a chance to check the official Magento U materials, but as for today (23rd Feb 2020) I couldnt find a better deal for a knowledge resource than the prep course available on It is really an amazing value for $350. You can also select the gold version for $600 with extra course work review and money back warranty, but this will require you to document your progress (including screenshots of finished assignment tasks - and there are a lot of them).
