    Hello Shekar,

    Thank you for your inquiry. The specific domains highlighted in the Topic-Based mode are those that are critical in the exam. Even if a certain topic isn’t included in the Topic-Based mode, it doesn’t necessarily mean that we do not have questions relating to that topic. Taking the exam in Topic-Based mode continuously will only result in the memorization of answers.

    If you want to gauge your knowledge on the different domains first, 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.

    Therefore, we highly recommend that you also utilize the other training modes like the Timed Mode or Final Test. The sets in Timed Mode and Final Test contain a wide range of questions about each of the domains that are included in the exams. The randomization of questions somehow prevents the memorization of previous attempts and will gauge one’s thorough understanding of each service included in the exam.

    I hope this helps. 🙂
