I skip the practitioner, but for the solutions architect, I used A Cloud Guru and lots of practice exams (like what A1 said). I passed on my first attempt with zero prior cloud experience

Nope, it is not!

There’s a course by Stephane maarek on Udemy. It’s really good! I did that in 4 days and passed my exam the day after 😬 Good luck OP!

There is a study guide for cloud practitioner study guide for free by David Clinton that you can find as a PDF online. Read that along with an a cloud guru course. However, I would recommend investing in solutions architect first then getting cloud practitioner because youlll be super familiar with most of the services.

Jon Bosno on Udemy practice exams.

Oh boy..so many different options and this is what I feared. I'm assuming no one best option(s) then?

And to add, since this is the entry level exam most practice exams will pretty much reflect the real exam however, as you move into associate exams do research before buying any materials

I have 10 years of experience. Mostly in Unix, C++ and Visual C++ and MS SQL.

Along with these I was able to clear 8 Azure certifications as well: 3 fundamentals, Azure Security, Azure Developer, Azure DevOps and Azure Architect. Now my main question, can I try to switch on Cloud Architect or some other similar cloud roles?

At a former company, they let you expense $20 for working 10+ hours in a day, but you could never use it because it would always be rejected. Recently started at a new firm, and I had a rough week last week (two 14+ hour days). New firm has a similar policy, so I asked. Was told not to submit the $20 reimbursements. Just as I was about to get frustrated, he told me I should get dinner for my wife and me. Only rule was to keep it under $100. Don't like working 14 hour days, but this was nice.
