I am preparing for my AWS Solution Architect professional exam , at lot of topics i could only notice it is referenced to year 2015 / 2016, so i was wondering how good they are with current exam questions / topics covered
The Certification course are not intended to teach every new service and feature. (If they did they would be too long and too expensive for anyone to do 😀 ). They are aimed at preparing students for the related exam and ensure that they have a strong understanding of the Core competencies to take into a job situation and be productive.
Once you master the Core topics picking up new Services and Features is generally not a problem. We also have and are developing a lot of secondary material to cover popular services that are outside the cert courses.
As a general rule not every service or feature will make it on to an exam, and then only after about 12 months. By all means read up on new servies & features, but don’t expend a lot of exam prep time following the trends. 😉
The SA Pro course has just been updated and then refreshed to align with the latest exam. Follow Scott’s advice on holistic preparation and you should be fine.
