How my MindMaps helped others clear AWS certification

One fine morning I woke up and thought that I would like to get AWS certified. I did do the groundwork in a real passive manner for over a period of 4-5 months in 2018. Fast Forward to the above mentioned morning, so yes let me do it and I bought that Udemy course. It has been almost 3000 days I have given a test so I was not sure how my DAD brain will perform compared to BOY brain 3000 days ago. So I read this book "Unlimited Memory", totally unwanted effort but I learnt about MindMaps. For AWS Developer Associate you need to remember a lot of facts and I forcefully fit in the MindMaps here. I bought a monthly subscription of ~2$ from MindMup.com and created topic based MindMaps. Less I knew back then that it's going to be useful to a handful of people to actually clear the exam including me. I have got a lot of good feedback and Linkedin requests based on the same. My vlog floats up in Top 10 "How to Clear AWS Developer Associate Exam" on YouTube. I'm not going to sell my YouTube link here but let me know if you find me :-)

I'm new to DEV and though that I might give something with my first post here.

Hello Vinodh,
Just stumbled across your post and wanted to share; it's funny the way brains work. I'm also studying for AWS certs, and also stumbled across Unlimited Memory and found the mind mapping parts very useful. From one dad brain to another, keep sharing your experience, it's very much appreciated and I for one look forward to hearing about any further discoveries! Thanks, Chris

Here is the video in question:

Here's an example of a Mind Map for Route53.

Is there a way to share the maps in a zip file, or I do not know if there is a source for them so I add more things to it?

github.com/VinodhThiagarajan1309/a... - This was the best I was able to come up with. These are files that can be open by site mindmup.com only. You need to have paid subscription ~2$ pm i guess. Still if its useful in case

I wanted to do it too. But its a paid site and haven't really found a useful way to share it or I didnt spend enough time on it. Let me try something of that sort and see how we can collaborate.
