Just cleared AWS SAA few days back . Will AWS CDA help to understand and clear AWC Pro. Or can I directly prepare for Pro.

I think it will be beneficial to get hands on experience with AWS ( if you aren't already doing that yet).

Thanks . My hands-on is very limited to the courses that I used to prepare for the exam . Don’t have much real experience

If you don’t mind me asking, why are you interested in doing the Pro certification?

The process of working for the certification helps me to understand AWS much better without actual experience .While SAA helped me to understand more than basic, I am not quite comfortable with the details . So wanted to take one step further.
