Hi guys! I recently cleared the AWS CCP and look forward to preparing for SAA. Can someone please guide? Too many resources available but with the CA02 I would need some recommendations for courses, timelines, practice tests, etc . No prior experience with cloud. TIA

I would highly recommend Stephane Mareck for the course and Jon Boso for the practice exams. They are both on Udemy and should be around $10.
For the hands on labs and additional practice you can use Whizlabs.

Hi can you give any advice on getting more hands on AWS experience. I'm training myself watching video but don't have any real project cloud experience I got layoff with 1 AWS cert

I used acloud guru and one of the official guide books. Exam collection also has a lot of practise exams which helped a lot. I would definitely recommend all of those + doing some hands on work using amazon free tier account

Thanks for the response. Any timeline advice? I check the udemy course and it's about 24 hours long... Any recommendation on the approach?

How about using Linux academy ?
