Hi Lawrie,

I used the courses on Big Data Speciality preparation course on the acloud.guru/ site. There is a similar course on Linux Academy. To be honest, I couldn't imagine how you could pass the exam without the help of one these courses.

You have a good list there. In addition, the cloud guru and linux academy courses also cover off (SQS, IoT, Data Pipeline, AWS ML (multiclass v binary v regression models). I didn't get any questions myself on IoT or Data Pipeline but that doesn't mean you shouldn't study it.

Do you know that the Big Data exam will be closed off in April and replaced by the Data Analytics exam?


It may be worth waiting for this one and new courses to come online instead of pursuing the Big Data exam.
