AWS Basic Services
AWS Administration Services
AWS Deployment Services
With the AWS Solutions Architect Professional level certification, Amazon sought to identify individual administrators who are truly platform experts. Unless you've got some significant experience with AWS deployments and good familiarity with the full range of Amazon services, you probably won't have a chance at passing.
However, with this series of Cloud Academy courses, cloud expert Kevin Felichko is committed to making your learning process as smooth and productive as possible. Once complete, Kevin's guide to the Solutions Architect Professional level exam will lead you through the theoretical and practical skills you'll need to master this material.
This first course covers the key conceptual terminology and services that form the base for Amazon cloud architecting. The second course will guide you through fully-realized practical deployments, from start to finish. And the final course (late August, 2015) will focus on exam preparation and, in particular, strategies for confronting the particularly complicated style of question you'll face.

In this the first part of our course, on the Amazon Web Services Certified Solutions Architect Professional Credential, we have defined key terminology as well as covered most of the AWS Services.
For each service, we identified a purpose, common use-cases, and general pricing information. This high-level overview will prove very useful in Part 2, where we build a Cloud Solution from a set of requirements.
Before beginning the second part of this course, you will want to create and AWS account or acquire access to an account, it can be used to follow along.
All materials from the cloud formation script to the application source code will be made available for this purpose.
