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

Mothers, how do you keep your life going / live your life for yourself without having all your time sucked up by work and kids? I grew up with a doting stay-at-home mom, so I don’t have many examples of what balanced motherhood looks like. Also, it seems like American society erases your entire identity as a human being beyond “mom” once you have a kid, and I’m not sure how I feel about that. Thinking of having kids someday, but worried I’m too selfish to go for it.
