I’m not asking if Jon Bonso’s practice tests are word-to-word replicas or mimick the test. I’m more so asking if the content and especially the rationales, touch base on everything that can pop up on the test?
I’m taking the developer associate this Friday and have taken/reviewed all of the practice exams, cheatsheets, and additional recommended items to study in the associate developer cheatsheet and am trying to make flashcards.
There is so much information it’s difficult to determine what I should really take the time to memorize or what I can simply be aware of.
So in y’alls experience, were there any surprise questions that you never came across in the practice exams that showed up on the real test?

Hi Rich, take note that there are questions in the actual AWS exam that are difficult, tricky, and ambiguous. You have to be prepared to look for specific keywords or key phrases in order to find the most suitable answer. This is the style that we are trying to mimic in our practice tests. Some of the questions do not explicitly show the obvious keywords or phrases that will easily point to the answer. The key to passing the exam is understanding the concepts and explanations we gave in our practice exams.

That’s very helpful.
In terms of scope, would it be a fair assumption to estimate that the practice exams cover 80%+ of the material on the exam?
What I’m worried about are the really obscure questions like highly granular parameters nested in one of the configuration files, or spotting malformed urls for a less used service, etc. Stuff you just wouldn’t think to memorize if that makes sense.
Your tests are amazing and I wouldn’t be anywhere near prepared as I am now without them. I do want to make sure I lapse over any loose ends before the test tomorrow. It’s hard to determine what you need to dive deep in and what you just need to have a general understanding of.
