    Good tip. I've never used Udemy before - is the quality decent?

    FWIW - I noticed that if I spend some time looking at the course agenda and reviews, the price drops further to $10.

    It really depends on the person administering the course. Some speak better, more clearly and a little louder (nothing like the static buzz from having to turn your speakers all the way up). I don't speak any other languages (unfortunately), so clear English is a must for me. The thicker the accent the more it takes away from my focus and attention and just adds time to learning and I don't have time to repeat everything I watch for THAT reason. Some are definitely better, for sure. The videos are good quality though and usually done at a decent pace. I like the lifetime access to courseware because I have a lot on my plate at the moment and I don't like to be rushed.

    Also, some courses give you PDFs or Documents with links to download Virtual Machines and other content which is reeeeeally useful.

    It's 3 times as expensive, but I recommend going w/ the ACLoudGuru (Ryan Kroonenburg) videos. Buy them on udemy, punch your receipt into their official site, gain access there and to all their extra content. FTW

    Thanks @DoubleNNs. I noticed that all the ACloudGuru courses are on sale for $10. That still seems like a bargain.

    Not to hijack the thread - but do you guys think it's possible to pass the exams with just the ACloudGuru courses, labbing, and reading the free white-papers? I'm thinking about taking the certs just for fun so I rather not spend too much money on course materials. From the other threads on the forum, this looks to be a very straight-forum certs.

    @ Paul - This thread has some interesting information and was what got me to look more closely at the certs. I don't know if I have any reason to go beyond associate in this track but broadening my skillset is something I want to continue to do and laying out the ground-work will give me options.

    Yes, MANY people do just that. It's usually said that ACG teaches you what you need to know to pass the exams. LinuxAcademy teaches you deeper/broader than just what's covered on the exam. Either course combined with labbing and reading white papers is enough to pass.

    I passed all 3 of my AWS Associate certs using just ACloudGuru + labbing. I personally didn't even read the white papers. And there weren't any guides published yet when I passed. I think you'll be good with just ACloudGuru.

    Thanks for the feedback. I had read the other threads about passing all 3 in 1.5 months which I thought was interesting.
