Passed Solutions Architect Professional – May 25th 2019

I successfully sat for the SA Pro cert yesterday morning. I don’t have much of a write-up compared to the other Specialty exams I’ve passed. It was pretty much what I expected, hard and verbose. The exam is very broad and covers a lot of the AWS services with questions often involving the interaction between multiple services. I studied using the 2019 updated course (Thank you Mr. Pletcher), the new exam simulator, and the white papers and Re:Invent videos recommended in the domain wrap-ups. Preparing for this exam epitomizes the old adage, "How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time." My goal was to get thought one white paper or Re:Invent video a day. I wasn’t always successful, but it worked in the end.

Best of luck, everyone!

Did you see any new topics in the SAP exam, which are not covered in the exam? can you list out the white papers and re:invent videos you have watched?


I’ve updated my original post with links to the whitepapers and videos.

Congratulations! Thanks for sharing your list of reviewers/videos!


A) Had you already taken the Associate or went straight into Pro?

B) For Pro, approx. How many hours across how many days did you think you spent? (E.g. On average 3 hours a day for 90 days)

C)Did you take notes and if so was it physical/book or digital? I prefer physical but like the convenience of digital. I know its personal preference but interested to hear what you did.
