I passed the AWS Security Specialty Exam today.
To study, I used LA/A Cloud Guru courses, AWS Certified Security Specialty Exam Study Guide SCS-C01 by Jon Bonso, AWS Certified Security – Specialty: Study Guide: by Zeal Vora, and the Tutorials Dojo Practice Exams.
I thought the exam was moderately difficult. There were many questions on:
CloudFront, WAF and ALB Integration
Other areas included:
Direct Connect and VPNs
Oddly enough, there were no Cognito or AD questions on my exam. Of course, you should study these things anyway.
I took this exam at home with PSI, which was simple to do but it would only work on my Windows computer.
I hope this helps.
Good luck and Happy New Year!
Congratulations and thanks for sharing the tips!
