How I passed the AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner on the first try!

In my latest YouTube video on the Cajoling Technologies channel, I detail how I studied for the exam and passed on the first try. I also give some study tools my peers have shared with me. I found the exam to be challenging but not impossible as long as you take the time to study.

The 4 domains to study are:

1) Cloud Concepts
2) Security and Compliance
3) Technology
4) Billing and Pricing

Here is a grouping of links to that will help you study. You won’t need to use all of these, but choose what is the best fit for your style:
