Does AWS use a standard data-rate (Bit or Byte) for their exams?

So I haven’t had any luck finding it but is there any standard of what data-rate the exams generally use. With roughly 2 min per question, doing the conversion for data migrations can be a real pain. Do they ever mix bit and bytes? Example: On-Prem Data needs to be transferred to S3 is 10 TBs and the network throughput is 30 Gbps?

I’ve seen examples of them mixing the values, but generally its on well known best practices/thresholds, like when to use Snowball:

You don’t really need to do the math on the data migration, but you should know the basic thresholds.


Kind of my thinking as well. Appreciate the comment.
