I passed the security exam today. I don’t have my score yet, but suspect It isn’t 1000!! [EDIT: 869 ]. This exam is tough – a step above the Associate exams.
It’s all a bit of a blur, but I remember lots of questions on CloudTrail, CloudWatch and Config. Don’t rely on the course, make sure you have explored the documentation and played with it. Know about querying CloudTrail logs.
Athena was mentioned a few times.
Know IAM back to front, particularly cross-account and federated access, and particularly S3.
And completely random, but know about smtps!
Zeal Vora book
AWS official exam practice
IAM user guide (particularly the worked examples).
Good exam technique is essential here. Even if you aren’t sure of an answer, it is usually possible to narrow the odds by eliminating a couple of obviously incorrect choices.
Congratulations on your success.
One quick question, how good zeel vora book is. As I read mix feedback on Amazon.
