#NikemaLearns About AWS – #2 A Milestone Met!

Feb 12, 2021 by Nikema Prophet

I really wanted to finish my video course before writing this blog post, and *spoiler alert* I did it!

I finished the course and took my second practice exam today. I didn’t get a passing score (69.23%, so close), but I did improve since the first attempt.

Check out the previous post in the #NikemaLearns series!

Test results. 69.23%

This will be a short blog post. The work I’ve done in the last two weeks isn’t the kind of work that I have much to say about. In preparation for today’s blog, I made sure to finish the course, set up the repo for notes, and I randomly had the idea to recap the lessons from the course using video (transcript here).

At least now the stage is set. I expect that my next post will be more interesting.

 

The last thing I want to say is video is hard, but that’s okay. We can do hard things! I’m looking forward to feeling more confident on video and more secure in my knowledge of cloud fundamentals. I’ll get there, it’s just a matter of investing the time and effort to do so.

Next Steps

  • Continue to work on converting handwritten notes to typed notes at https://aws.nikema.dev
  • Start working through AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner (CLF-C01) Cert Guide on O’Reilly Learning
  • Take practice tests at least weekly. Keep taking them until I am consistently exceeding 70% correct answers
  • Once I start consistently passing the practice exams, schedule the real thing.

Thanks for being along on this learning path with me. See you in a few weeks!
