This is a review of the Amazon Web Services Certified Solutions Architect, Official Study Guide, for the Associate Exam.
I have received this item free for review via the Amazon Vine Customer Review Program, though the item is free the thoughts and opinions are my own and I hope give you a trust feel for my opinion of this text.
I like it, it’s certainly one of the better study guides I’ve read, clean and easily digestible.
