Hi Hiroko! Do you have any advice to share with someone who is newer in IT and is getting discouraged while studying for the AWS Cloud Practitioner exam?

Hi Gracie! Thanks for the q! I can really understand the sentiment, as that's exactly where I was when I created 3 years ago. I was so frustrated and discouraged by all the resources that I couldn't comprehend when trying to study for the AWS Cloud Practitioner exam. is a great place to start, and if your company or library has a LinkedIn Learning subscription, will help as well. There are also free video courses on YouTube. And for community, I recommend #100daysofcloud on Twitter and on Discord to keep motivated!
