    1. Adetutu.J Gbajumo

      It hurts…knowing that I literally paid to study this and here I am learning again because I didn’t understand at all.

  1. Perfect timing on this video. I’m taking this exam in two days so i’m going to binge through it over the next two nights before the exam. Thank you FCC!

    1. @RGBWill well done. Mine is Thursday, I’m doing a combination of pre-exams on Udemy and Cloud Guru, but will also watch this video. Congrats. Anything you think I should look out for in particular around exam?

  2. The hero we need. Thank you Andrew Brown for sharing your wisdom with the global developer community. You are a teacher’s teacher.


    Wow it’s truly amazing that there are people whom are willing to pour their expertise into others for the growth of the collective!

  4. To me, this guy is awesome especially if he has the patience to create a 13h+ contents for mankind…Very appreciative and well done…For those who may think this long, spend 3 to 4 hours a day consistently and you will be done in three to four days…My hat off to you…

    1. IIUC, it’s monetized and longer clips get a zillion more views due to the fact that serious people are going to come back many times to continue watching, and not in one go. It’s great that YouTube can incentivize Mr. Brown for a course like this.

  5. Wonderful video. Covered almost 100% of the exam. Loved the services tutorials on the AWS console. A little fast for first timers though but I think that this is what the rewind for 😁. Thanks for your excellent work 👌

  6. Thank you for the amazing content. Its easy to understand and in a logical sequence, i like the fact that simple anecdotes and in depth knowledge has been shared to help get fundamentals right – rather than just memorize. Community- need some help on what exactly i need to look at in follow alongs, they look a bit tedious(i have tired a few basic stuff on my own – like created account, created an instance, created a basic bucket, IAM rules etc). but all using the management console…. logged in to CMD too to just establish a connection – not great at coding and scripts though , do i need to know all for the practitioner. All who have passed the test please?

  7. Andrew Brown, Thank you for your efforts and materials!
    I’ve just passed my Cloud practitioner exam and your video was vital in achieving this!
    Straw exercises were funny 😄

    My great appreciation!
    With regards,

    Thank you so much Andrew and those who would like to share their time and effort and knowledge online. It makes learning more convenient and easier like me who have very limited resources!

  10. Ravikumar Swaminathan

    Thanks a lot Andrew for the excellent content.. I am working on AWS almost an year but was scared to take any certification due to fear in passing it. I just watched your video 1hr daily n gained the confidence. It’s a must watch series anyone looking to get started with AWS. Thanks for all the day/night efforts you had put on this video. Good luck, keep spreading love and knowledge.

    1. ​@Gbolahan Onabokun just passed this exam yesterday, prepared only 2 days! this video and just remembered some AWS technologies(product names), and that’s all! but i recommend to prepare at least 5-7 days. Good luck

    2. Abdalla Mohammad

      Do I need to follow along for all the materials on CLI, SDK so that I can pass the exam or these parts are not important ?

  13. Literally just passed my exam this past weekend using only this and a few free practice exams as my only two resources. Excellent video, make sure to follow along and keep your own notes and you shouldn’t need to look anywhere else but right here.

    1. can you please tell what are the 2 resources that you’ve used for the practice exams

  14. Passed my AWS CCP exam today! This course and and two practice tests from exampro was all I used. Took 1 week and I watched the video on 1.5x speed and stopped to take notes. No previous experience in cloud.

    1. Fernando Martinez

      Thank you for your comment it’s such a motivation
      Did you watch any other videos or just that one?

  15. Can’t believe this is free! Watched this video at 1.5 speed after taking the ACG course and AWS’s own exam prep material. Learned a good bit and helped fill in knowledge gaps. Highly recommend. Thank you!

  16. Ahmed Al Jarouf

    I just passed my exam yesterday. Thanks to this course and the practice exams on Exampro. That’s literally all I used to prepare. Great job Andrew and team! Thanks!

    1. Mohit Chhangani

      Hey congrats !!! could you please talk about the format? time? and the weight? Is it still the same as described in the video?

  17. Soumya Shivananjegowda

    Thank you for making such a long sequence video comprising all possible concepts for CCP level. Your this selfless service is much appreciated! Thanks again 🙂
