    I started with the ‘Topic-based’ practice exams which are listed at the bottom of the TD site. These are based on topics like S3, cloudfront etc. There are 13 exams with 8 to 10 questions in each . I completed all 13 topic bases exams. Then moved on to the practice exams in ‘Review mode’, completed two of those ( they have 6). I am doing the first ‘Timed-mode’ practice exam, I find the questions are all repeating. I am familiar with the questions, so its not a real test. Looks like simply by doing all of the ‘Topic-based’ practice exams, I have exhausted all of the unique questions from the TD question bank. Has anybody experienced this ? TD, I purchased the course to practice with 100’s of unique questions, why I am I seeing repeat questions

    Please be reminded that our practice tests reviewer has a total of unique 390 questions. That’s why we have 6 sets in the Timed mode section with 65 questions each (65 x 6 = 390).

    The other training modes (Review-mode, Section-Based mode, and Final-Test mode) are fetching questions from the same Question Bank. This clearly is mentioned on our FAQ page:

    These different training modes have their own purpose. Review-mode allows you to view the answers immediately right after you hit submit and the Section-based mode compiles all of the relevant questions for a particular AWS Service that you need practice on. The Final-Test mode produces a unique set of 65 questions (out of the 390 questions) every time you load it so you can avoid accidental memorization.

    Let us know if you need further assistance. The Tutorials Dojo team is dedicated in helping you pass your AWS exam on your first try!

      Hello Rajan,

      The questions on the Timed Mode can also be found in Review Mode, Section-Based, and Final Tests. It’s just that the questions are presented differently in each mode.

      If you want to go through all the questions, you need to take the exam in Timed Mode. The other training modes are just additional features to help reinforce the concepts learned. The key to passing the AWS exam is understanding the concepts and explanations we give in our practice exams.
