    Hi Warren,

    Thank you for sharing your thoughts on our practice questions. We are very much open to constructive feedback, and I see that you’ve indicated three items here that you deem to have an ambiguous answer.

    I understand that you have a total of 8 years working in AWS. On my end, I started working on AWS-related projects in 2014 (10 years ago) and took the first version of the AWS Certified Solutions Architect – Associate (SAA-C00) in 2018 and its succeeding versions thereafter (SAA-C01, SAA-C02, and SAA-C03). I’ve also taken several certification exams as well such as CCNA, ITIL, SCJP/OCJP and other exams in the past.

    The exam scenarios in the AWS exam had various evolutions, so to speak, in the way they are designed, but one thing still remains, which is having to choose the best solution among several related options.

    We don’t make deliberate “assumptions” per se since each scenario has related keywords and key phrases that support the provided answer. However, take note that the actual exam will not divulge the entire information in the scenario, and you will need to do a certain level of analysis and assumption in order to provide the best solution for the situation. It is quite concise and not as verbose as many first-time exam takers assume. This has been the style of AWS Certification exams since its 2nd iteration (SAA-C01) as someone who has been taking these certification tests on a regular basis.

    The best way to discuss this is to share with us these 3 scenarios that you are alluding to here so our team and our readers can have a better context.

    I’ll be waiting for the 3 scenarios, and let’s further discuss from there.
