AWS Certified SysOps Administrator Official Study Guide: Associate Exam Review

As I posted recently I've been using some great resources to prepare for some AWS exams. In my AWS Certified Solutions Architect Official Study Guide: Associate Exam review I raved about how good it is in assisting to prepare for the exam. Now I want to talk about the, "AWS Certified SysOps Administrator Official Study Guide: Associate Exam," which is what you need to help pass this exam.


In it, "The AWS Certified SysOps Administrator Official Study Guide: Associate Exam is a comprehensive exam preparation resource. This book bridges the gap between exam preparation and real-world readiness, covering exam objectives while guiding you through hands-on exercises based on situations you'll likely encounter as an AWS Certified SysOps Administrator. From deployment, management, and operations to migration, data flow, cost control, and beyond, this guide will help you internalize the processes and best practices associated with AWS. The Sybex interactive online study environment gives you access to invaluable preparation aids, including an assessment test that helps you focus your study on areas most in need of review, and chapter tests to help you gauge your mastery of the material. Electronic flashcards make it easy to study anytime, anywhere, and a bonus practice exam gives you a sneak preview so you know what to expect on exam day."

I would highly recommend getting this study guide and using it to help you achieve the, "AWS Certified SysOps Administrator – Associate" certification.

AWS Certified Solutions Architect Official Study Guide: Associate Exam Review

I've been working with AWS for 10 years now and love it more than ever! About four years ago when I first learned of AWS Certifications I went right out and took the Architecting on AWS Associates exam and was able to pass it the first time. When it came time to re-certify a couple years later I went in a little unprepared and barely missed passing so I started looking for some help.

That's when I found, "AWS Certified Solutions Architect Official Study Guide: Associate Exam." I got it and read through for the next few weeks brushing up on many topics I already knew, but also learning a lot of new material.



In this the authors do a great job of explaining the following topics and it will definitely help prepare you for the exam!

  • Mapping Multi-Tier Architectures to AWS Services, such as web/app servers, firewalls, caches and load balancers
  • Understanding managed RDBMS through AWS RDS (MySQL, Oracle, SQL Server, Postgres, Aurora)
  • Understanding Loose Coupling and Stateless Systems
