Absolutely! For each practice test course that we currently offer, we’ve created a FREE Sampler that gives you a sneak peek of our practice test questions as well as some of the training modes that are available in the full paid course.
Each sampler course has the following training modes: (1) Timed Mode with 10-15 questions, (2) Review Mode with 10-15 questions, and (3) 5 Bonus Flashcards.
 
To fully prepare you for the exam, we recommend that you get the full, premium courses as well.
Tutorials Dojo’s practice test courses are well-regarded to have the highest quality among other providers. Our content and question bank are regularly updated based on the feedback that we get from thousands of our students and also based on our own exam experience.
 
In addition, taking our practice tests directly from our portal has much more advantages and features as compared to getting the same courses from other platforms such as Udemy.
Udemy vs Tutorials Dojo
Our portal offers five different training modes in each full, PREMIUM practice test course:
 
1. Timed Mode – exam sets that are under time pressure, which simulates the actual exam environment. Answers with detailed explanations can be seen at the end of each set. 
For the premium courses, the Timed Mode has a fixed number of questions per set (65 for Cloud Practitioner, Associate, and Specialty, and 75 for Professional exams). The questions on the Timed Mode can also be found in the Review Mode, Section-Based, and Final Tests. It’s just that the questions are presented differently in each mode.
 
For more information on how to use the tests in Timed Mode, click here.
 
2. Review Mode – exam sets that have no time pressure. After answering a question, you can immediately view the answer by clicking the Check button.
For the premium courses, there’s a fixed number of questions per set (65 for Cloud Practitioner, Associate, and Specialty, and 75 for Professional exams) and at every load, it randomly selects and generates a 30-item question set.
 
3. Section-Based Mode – each set in this mode contains questions only from a specific domain/topic. There is no time limit in this mode and you can view the answers to each question as you go through them.
For the premium courses, there’s also a fixed number of questions here (maximum of 30 questions) and each load of the tests here just displays the same set of questions in random order.
 
4. Final Test – randomly pulls a specific number of questions (65 for Cloud Practitioner, Associate level, and Specialty exams, 75 for Professional level exams) across the entire course question bank. This serves as a final check to gauge your exam readiness and is to be taken under time pressure.
For more information on how to use the Final Test, click here.
 
5. Bonus Flashcards – unique visual tools to help you retain the important concepts that you need to know to pass the exam.
Note: Even though the access to our full, premium course is valid for one year as per our Terms & Conditions, we may opt to extend the validity to two or three years at our own discretion.
If you have bought our practice test course on Udemy, you can request for access to our Exam Simulator here in the portal via the Udemy messaging platform:
Note: Refer to the instructions here if you are having a hard time locating the Udemy messaging tool.
 
Once you send us a message on Udemy, a member of our team will check that you are still enrolled in our course i.e. have not requested for a refund, and we will give you a unique coupon to access the portal for 3 months.
Please note that the Exam Simulators that you can access for free for 3 months are different from the full, premium courses (see below table for comparison).
 
The access you will get allows you to view our questions in (1) Timed Mode, (2) Review Mode, as well as the (3) Bonus Flashcards. Both the Timed and Review Mode randomly pulls a certain number of questions from a partial question bank which reduces the chances of memorizing answers from previous attempts. Roughly about 80% of the entire question bank on Udemy can be found in the Exam Simulator.
 
The Review Mode is especially helpful since Udemy currently does not have the capability to display the answers to each question as you go through them.
Why are we given only 3 months access to the Tutorials Dojo portal?
 
Based on our research, an average person normally takes anywhere between 1-3 months to prepare for their AWS certification exams. Thus, we thought that a 3-month access would be more than enough time to fully prepare for any of these AWS exams.
 
Another reason is that we want to encourage you to get any of our other practice tests, which you intend to take in the future, directly from our own portal. If we give unlimited access to each of our courses that you purchase on Udemy, there is very little incentive for you to buy straight from us. 
 
As you may already be aware, our average revenue share for each sale that we make on Udemy is only anywhere between $2 USD to $4 USD. Sometimes, it can even get as low as $0.5 USD for each sale because Udemy has to pay its advertising partners and other affiliates (Google Play Store, iTunes Store, etc.) before they can share the revenue to instructors.
 
All of our practice tests are proudly made by AWS certified professionals and it takes us an average of 2-3 hours to come up with each question along with the detailed explanations which oftentimes contain diagrams, videos, GIF demos, cheat sheets, and other supplementary resources that will not just help you pass the exam but also make you a versatile AWS professional. We’ve already gone above and beyond by providing free access to our feature-rich portal and we sincerely hope that you will continue supporting us by getting our other practice test courses directly from our portal.

You can view all of our available eBooks here.

Very soon, we will release downloadable PDF study guides and cheat sheets for other AWS certification exams.

Each study guide and cheat sheet eBook contains an overview of the AWS certification exam and what to expect in the actual test. It also contains our study guide with tips and recommended reading materials, cheat sheets ONLY for the relevant AWS services, as well as comparison of similar AWS services, which can help you solve the tricky scenario questions in the actual test.

Note: Bulk of the content here is already freely available on the Tutorials Dojo site (https://tutorialsdojo.com/aws-cheat-sheets/). Therefore, these eBooks are suitable for those who want to get a summary of ONLY the cheat sheets that are relevant to the specific exams and prefer to have all the information available in one file that can be printed and accessed anytime, even when offline.

Can these eBooks be bundled with your AWS practice test courses?

Absolutely! The individual product price of each eBook ranges from $4.99 USD (for Cloud Practitioner) to $6.99 USD (for all the other AWS certifications) but if you get our practice test courses at the same time in one transaction, you can get them at discounted bundle prices.

Where can I see a preview of your eBook?

In the Shop page, you can click the eBooks to see the product description and snapshots of some of the content.

I just purchased the eBook. Where do I download the content?

Once the payment has been processed, you’ll be directed to the order confirmation screen where you can download the eBook:

You’ll also get an email confirmation with a download link:

Important note: For security purposes, the link in the email confirmation will only allow you to download the eBook when you are logged into your Tutorials Dojo account.

You can also access and download the eBook by going to your Downloads page. You can view your Downloads by either clicking “My Downloads” in the left menu panel or clicking the dropdown next to your profile name then clicking Billing Account. 

From Billing Account, click “Downloads”.

How long will I have access to the eBook?

The download link expires exactly one year after your purchase. Technically, once you download the eBook, you’ll already have lifetime access to the content. However, we are giving you the opportunity to download the updated versions of our eBooks for free up to three times within a year.

We usually update our cheat sheets once every quarter so if you bought our ebook, you can re-download the eBook for free every three months to get the latest version. We’ll create a dedicated Announcements page so you’ll know when we’ve made updates to the content. Then, simply visit your Downloads page to re-download the eBook.

Once you’ve downloaded it four times, you’ll no longer be able to make any succeeding downloads. Finally, your access to our eBook updates will then expire exactly a year after you purchased it.

Can I refund my eBook purchase?

We will only allow refunds if you have never downloaded the eBook. Once you download the eBook, even if it’s just once, you’ll forfeit your eligibility for a refund. For eligible refunds, kindly send your request to support@tutorialsdojo.com.

If you are unsure about a particular question, you can always skip or answer it and mark for review. To mark a question for review later on, simply click the Review Question button. Once you click this, a yellow dot will be placed on the question number to indicate that you have marked it for review:

Note: The yellow dot is automatically replaced with a green dot once you answer the question. If you want to mark any answered question for review, simply click the “Review question” button once again and the green dot will be replaced with a yellow dot.

You can pause and save your progress in the Timed Mode and come back at a later time. There is a Pause button beside the “Flag for Review” button in the Timed Mode sets which allows you to take a break and saves all previously answered questions. When you reload the set, you’ll see a Resume Quiz button.

To learn more about pausing a test in Timed Mode, visit this FAQ page – https://portal.tutorialsdojo.com/faq-timed-mode/.

For the Review Mode and Section-Based tests, there is no Pause button because these tests are relatively short (no more than 30 questions per test) and are usually completed in one sitting.

For the Final Test, we do not want you to be distracted as it’s intended to be the final gauge of your exam readiness. It simulates the actual exam where even bathroom breaks are not allowed, thus, we removed the ability to pause the test in this section.

Click “My Courses” at the top menu then click the specific course where you’d like to view your previous attempts. Once you’ve clicked the course, you’ll see your course progress by clicking the dropdown arrow as per below screenshot:

Click the Statistics button to view your detailed results:

What you’ll see when you click Statistics:

In this view, you can filter your results by category and by correct/skipped/incorrect answers.

Alternatively, your course progress and all previous attempts are also recorded in My Dashboard:

The results page will only freeze when you lose Internet connection at any time during the test or if the screen was left to run without any activity for a prolonged period of time. In that case, you’ll need to refresh/reload the page then login again if you were logged out of the site. If you were answering a set from the Timed Mode then you can resume the test at a later time.

For succeeding attempts, we do recommend: (1) always starting fresh i.e. opening a new tab and logging in with a new session before starting a test, (2) closing other tabs, (3) sitting through the test without leaving the screen for a prolonged time, or if using a test in Timed Mode (4) always click the Pause button when going for a break.

To leave a review on our premium courses, you can visit our Shop page (https://portal.tutorialsdojo.com/shop) then click the course you want to leave a review on. Once in the course product page, click the “Review” tab to be able to leave your feedback on the course:

Although we are sorry to see you go, we understand that our practice tests may not be what you are looking for. However, due to increased incidences of abuse, our refund policy has changed. 

For practice exams:

  1. A full refund can be requested within 15 days of purchase as long as you have not attempted more than two practice tests from the course content.
  2. A 50% refund can be requested within 15 days of purchase if you have attempted more than two but less than five practice tests from the course content.
  3. If you have attempted five or more practice tests then you are no longer eligible for a refund.

Note: This includes tests in the Timed Mode, Review Mode, Section-Based Tests, Topic-Based Tests (for Solutions Architect Associate), and the Final Test. Repeating a previously attempted test will also add to the attempt count.

For downloadable products such as eBooks:

  1. A full refund can be requested within 15 days of purchase as long as you have not downloaded the eBook/s.
