Great course by Stephane. I would say, he is one of the best tutor & Happy to inform - I have passed AWS-CSAA exam last weekend with 788/1000 marks.

By Ankur Arora on a month ago

This course is self sufficient in enabling you to pass the exam. Super like.

By Balaram Reddy on a month ago

This is really awesome tutorial. I went through this entire tutorial twice and I took an exam, passed it. Every concept is clearly explained in more understandable way and also exam tips are really great. If you don't understand 1st time, go through it again & I am sure, you will understand it.

I think this course was instrumental in getting me ready for the exam which I passed yesterday. I watched the material once over a 3 week period quite slowly and with replays to catch each point the instructor was making. Stephane spews "nuggets of information" like Kinesis Data Firehosen so after a 1 week break I watched all the videos again over a much shorter period (1.75x speed) and was still picking up a lot of stuff the 2nd pass. The level of detail and explanations are excellent. The architecture lessons really had my smiling as it brought everything learned together. I didn't bother doing the cloud guru course after reading the reviews here and was glad I did in fact "choose wisely". Thanks Stephane and keep up the great work educating!

The content of the course covers almost all of the topic appear in the real exam that I took on July 31, 2019. But the exam questions go much deeper in some area.I got quite a lot of questions ( at least 5 ) relating to ECS, and most of them I totally have no idea. One question in ELB like active-passive / active-active load balancing is also very new to me. I got nearly 10 questions related to choosing EBS volume type, choosing the most suitable storage type like EBS, EFS, S3, instance store, storage gateway ( volumes stored / cached) , etc. And some quite tough questions to choose over Elastic Beanstalk or Cloud Formation .Despite not feeling very confident about how I have done in the exam, a great relieve came when I saw a word "Congratulations" at the end of the test. I got my result yesterday and it absolutely surprised me ... 839!Thank you Stephane for creating such a wonderful course.

It was a comprehensive course and I really liked the way it was delivered! All topics were covered really well and I thank you for the same.

By Srijith Pillai on a month ago

This was my primary course material, went thru the course 3 or 4 times (at varying playback speed ). I really loved the way the entire content was laid out, the clear explanation , hands on and the exam tips.

By Vamshi Gaddam on 2 weeks ago

I passed the exam yesterday with score of 939. I used this course as my primary means of learning supplementing with AWS practice tests available on Udemy and referring to AWS documentation when I had questions. Thanks Stephane!

By Priyanka Ravishankar on 2 weeks ago

One of the best training material and very elaborate explanation on most of the Topics. Thank you Stephane and it deserves a 5 star rating. Thanks.

By Vivek Nagarajan on 2 weeks ago

If you are looking for just "one" course to successfully complete your certification, then this is one of the best courses available online. The course is well structured, the contents are to the point and the hands-on tutorials are very helpful in understanding "how" part of using AWS.Though this course would definitely help you get certified, this course alone would not be sufficient to face the real world. The author "Stephane" did a great job providing you with basic knowledge to understand the concepts and you would need to extend your knowledge with further self-learning to understand them better, unless you have prior experience working with AWS.Overall, a highly recommended course and worth investing !Thanks Stephane for you efforts in making this course.

By Brian Cimmino on a week ago

I passed the AWS solutions architect exam on the first try. This course was very helpful because Stephen provides hands on demonstrations. I like this course better than the cloud guru ones.

By Rajesh Babu Ravi on 2 weeks ago
