What you will learn

In this learning path, we will not only review key items of every exam domain but go hands-on with the AWS services that you must know to pass the exam. This course is meant to reinforce the material the exam expects you to know to pass. The exam is scenario-based and we incorporate that into the learning path, as well with exam-similar questions that prepare you to earn your AWS Security Specialty Certification.
