I signed up for the SAA practice exam and i find that there are 30 different exams in the portal. Do i have to attend all the practice exams? Should start with Timed Mode first or review mode? Because I’m not able to complete all the questions within the given time.
Or should i start with Review mode first?
And when do i know that I’m ready to schedule and appear for the actual exams?
PS: I’ve already scheduled an exam for Wednesday, but I’m thinking about postponing it as i dont feel confident and unable to complete the exam within the given time.
Kindly help me out.

Thank you for your inquiry. If you want to gauge your knowledge on the different domains, you can opt to do the section-based tests first. If you want the ability to view the answers as you go through each question then the Review Mode would be more suitable. The Timed Mode simulates the exam environment and trains your mind to answer questions under time pressure. Lastly, the Final Test randomly pulls questions across all sets to gauge your final exam readiness. Please note that the questions in the Timed Mode can also be found in all the other training modes and are just presented in a different format.
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.
Try to target a score of 85-90% in our practice tests and use our recommended resources in this study guide to further increase your chances of passing on your first try.
All the best!

Your explanation was very helpful. So would you recommend i do the Review Mode exams first or the Timed Mode?

Hi I started taking the Topic based quizzes in Review mode. I found that a lot of questions were repeated from the Timed Mode Quiz i had taken earlier.
So can you please suggest me which sections i should finish first to get the best out to the Practice exams and to be ready and confident for the final one?
Thank You 🙂

I wanted to update that I cleared my SAA exam on Dec 1 and this practice exam was amazing.
The approach i took was first i solved all Topic based questions, i.e S#, EC2, VPC, IAM etc. Then i solved all the Section based questions. Then i went for Review Mode. Then I solved the Practice mode with time limit enabled.
Finally the final test. I almost spent more than a week on just solving the practice papers, i was able to complete my exams within an hour and a half by the time i solved all the practice papers.
I’d definitely recommend this course for anyone still deciding whether to invest 14 $ on it. It’s totally worth it!!
Thank You for the amazing questions Jon, it gave me a lot of confidence. The explanations after attempting the questions are perfect to understand why an option is incorrect and why the correct option is suitable for this environment.
I’ve started studying for AWS Security Specialty now and I came back to Tutorials Dojo for the practice test:)
You Rock Jon..
