The FREE AWS Certified Solutions Architect Associate Study Course (275+ Videos!) 😱

andrewbrown profile image Andrew Brown πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦ ・16 min read

This Study Course is designed to help you pass the Solutions Architect Associate. It was recorded at the end of 2019 so if you're in 2020 you can absolutely use this course for study.

All Videos are part of a 275+ Video Youtube Playlist

P.S. The easiest way for you to support free video content so I can release bigger and larger cloud and developer courses is to like, comment, follow and subscribe. I would say the most important being Youtube Subscriptions. πŸ™ There is very little to no money in Youtube ads so larger numbers allow us to take on sponsorship.

P.S.S. The best way to support more free video content is to
πŸ‘‰ Buy Access to the extra content for Solutions Architect Associate πŸ‘ˆ
You get access to the videos as well as Quizzes and Flashcards on the videos and practice exams.

P.S.S.S. I strongly recommend you also use my Free CCP Study Course which compliment this course and has such content I do not cover here such as:

  • How to Setup an AWS Account
  • How to not get Overbilled
  • How to Book The Exam
