Welcome to Cloud Academy's preparation exam for Solutions Architect - Professional for AWS. This prep exam is designed to prepare you for the type of questions you will need to answer, as well as the timed environment you will experience during the actual exam.

If you are studying for the AWS Solutions Architect - Professional exam, we recommend you complete our learning path before taking this prep exam. This exam is modeled after the recently updated version of the Solutions Architect - Professional exam that AWS generally released in February 2019.


This prep exam has the same number of multiple-choice questions (75) as the AWS Certified Solutions Architect - Professional exam, with the same allotted time for completion (170 minutes).

Like the actual exam, some questions have one correct answer, while others require you to choose two or three correct answers.

The questions on this exam focus on the domains of AWS knowledge listed below:

  • Design for Organizational Complexity
  • Design for New Solutions
  • Migration Planning
  • Cost Control
  • Continuous Improvement for Existing Solutions
Each domain has the same level of emphasis as it will on the official exam.

Exam Score

In order to pass this prep exam, you will need both of the following:

  • A score of 75 percent or higher on the overall exam
  • A score of 35 percent on each exam domain

Once you begin your exam session:

You can spend as long as you wish on any particular question but must budget your time to complete all 75 questions. Any questions not completed in 170 minutes will be scored as incorrect.

During the session, you may skip questions and return to them later in the session. You can also review your answers to previous questions, and change them at any point during the exam session.

You can end the exam session at any time by selecting “Submit Exam,” but this completes the entire session. All of your answers will be scored. All unanswered questions will be scored as incorrect. You cannot return later to complete any unanswered questions.

You can always start a new session, but it may contain different questions from your previous session.

When you submit your exam, you will receive your total score, as well as your score for each exam domain.
