How I Passed the AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner in 4 Days


I passed the AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner exam in 4 days, with prior cloud experience.

Here are the steps I followed:

  1. Took a practice test and scored 58%. (from 6 Practice Exams Course by Stephane Maarek on Udemy)

  2. Watched Stephane Maarek's Practitioner Course(Udemy) on 2x speed, taking no notes.

  3. Read the course slides and take handwritten notes (almost 300 pages).

  4. Took another practice test and scored 81%.

  5. Reviewed my own handwritten notes.

  6. Took 4 more practice tests, reviewed incorrect and correct questions each time, and took handwritten notes.

  7. On exam day, I didn't study and passed the exam.


  1. Don't study any dumps. Instead, take paid practice tests.

  2. Review your incorrect and correct questions after each practice test.

  3. Don't over study. The exam is designed to be passed with 70% correct answers.

I hope this helps!
