Passed GCP ACE Exam: Sharing my experience/tips and thanking the ACG Community!!!

Hello ACG community members, I was able to pass my Google Cloud Associate Cloud Engineer exam today!!!

Firstly, I would like to thank Mattias Andersson for laying down the fabric for this exam. Secondly, I would like to thank Nigel Poulton for adding cherry on cake with Kubernetes course (it’s a big must to pass the exam).

My Background

I have got 15 years of experience in Data/Analytics space and has been working with Cloud for last 5 years (AWS: 4 years, GCP: 1 year). Though I was familiar with many of the GCP services and resources, but was lacking depth and hands-on. My main objective to appear for this exam was to take a deep-dive and understand the nuts-and-bolts of Google Cloud and gear up for my next exam as well …. yes …. Google Cloud Professional Cloud Architect!

How I prepared?

To start with I did a Crash Course on Google Cloud Platform, this was kind of a move trailer, which helped me get a helicopter view of all the GCP services.

Followed by Google Certified Associate Cloud Engineer 2020! This is a wonderful course, just apt for start preparing for the certification exam. What I like about this course is how the instructor, helped us thinking in terms of "Mental Models". Also, every chapter in this course has great links to google docs to take a deep dive (it’s must to go thru in detail to be confident in the exam). There are few areas that you need to cover as an addendum – Kubernetes, Cloud Run, Cloud Run with Anthos , VPC advanced concepts (links mentioned below)

All the very best to the fellow learners. Big Thank you to ACG community!!!

Awesome post! I am preparing for the GCP ACE Exam and had a question. Did you leverage practice exams outside of ACG, if yes, then could you also link those resources. Thanks again!
