SO I recently cleared my AWS associate architect exam (2nd time) and here are the list of services / types that normally comes in the exam!
Type of questions
Most of the questions are based on
- "when to use what" - which services are suited
- "what's the more secure way"
- "what's the most cheaper way"
- "which of these requires less operational overhead"
- s3 + Cloud front and OAI
- S3 different use cases (when to use Standard, Glacier/ vault etc)
- SQS + RDS / different queues and when to use FIFO vs standard
- VPC peering and endpoints
- ec2 auto scaling related (scheduled scaling/ cool down periods)
- Redshift availability/durability / multi region
- DynamoDB / Dax / DynamoDB streams
- iam roles/policies and types (lambda to s3/ instance profile roles etc /cross account roles)
- storage gateway (volumes/cached)
- data sync vs s3 transfer acceleration
- Kinesis data streams/ analytics/firehose
- s3 select vs glacier select
- RDS related (when to use aurora - latency/ read replicas vs Multi AZ )
- Monitoring related (cloudtrail vs cloudwatch vs trusted advisor)
- VPC scenarios (how to create networking). It needs the practical knowledge of setting up access to the Internet for the EC2 instances, for example from Igor (comments)
