    Thanks, Klimok for bringing this up to our attention.

    We will consider this feature on our succeeding site updates. We’re always improving our systems in order to serve you better.

    There is actually a faster method of accessing your courses that only takes a few seconds. Simply click the “All Courses and eBooks” drop-down link in the menu above and select the specific practice test or course that you want to open.

    From there, you will be able to see your previous exam attempts, scores, and the list of other lessons/tests that you can directly take.

    Regards,

    Hi Klimok,

    Thank you for sharing your thoughts on this scenario. Both Carlo and I have passed the actual AWS Certified Developer Associate exam, and other AWS certifications and I have seen a lot of ambiguous questions throughout different AWS exams.

    Keywords are quite important to distinguish the most suitable answer here. However, I disagree that this question is ambiguous at all.

    Let’s take a closer look:

    The keywords are:

    – deploy the applications’ new version to all instances simultaneously

    – LEAST amount of time

    The official AWS documentation says:

    All at once – Deploy the new version to all instances simultaneously. All instances in your environment are out of service for a short time while the deployment occurs.

    Immutable – Deploy the new version to a fresh group of instances by performing an immutable update.

    Reference:

    https://docs.aws.amazon.com/elasticbeanstalk/latest/dg/using-features.rolling-version-deploy.html

    The provided answer and the official AWS documentation are exactly the same for this key phrase: “new version to all instances simultaneously.” – It’s written verbatim and this is also cited in our provided explanation.


    Let’s now look at the second keyword: “LEAST amount of time”

    The official AWS documentation has a table of the Deployment Methods available in Elastic Beanstalk, which contains the Deploy Time for each type. Apparently, the All-at-once option provides the LEAST amount of time among all other options.

    https://docs.aws.amazon.com/elasticbeanstalk/latest/dg/using-features.deploy-existing-version.html#deployments-scenarios

    The Immutable option fails to meet those 2 important keywords. If you use this option, Elastic Beanstalk creates a second, temporary Auto Scaling group behind your environment’s load balancer. The process of launching another Auto Scaling group takes time.

    I do understand that there is a certain gray area here about availability. Of course, it is recommended that there won’t be any downtime for any type of deployment. However, in the real world, there are certain cases where it is better to have a short 1-minute downtime in order to quickly resolve an issue — instead of waiting 15 minutes or so to deploy an urgent fix.

    For example, if there was an incorrect business logic that was deployed in production that is corrupting user data. The more time the current version is processing the requests, the higher rate of corrupted data will pile up.

    In my over 10 years in the industry, I’ve worked with different banks and financial institutions where we suspended certain operations for a short period of time. I understand it’s not ideal but there are more things to consider here than mere application availability. You have to consider compliance, regulations, and the integrity of your data. The best course of action at times is to briefly suspend live production traffic in order to quickly resolve the issue.

    Expect to see this kind of nuance in the actual AWS exam. They will deliberately leave out details like this and will put more weight on the keywords present in the scenario.

    Thank you again for your suggestion but this scenario does not warrant any revision.

    Regards,

    Jon Bonso

    Thank Luca for bringing this up to our attention.

    @Carlo-TutorialsDojo and I will update the image for this particular scenario:

    A developer is working on a photo-sharing application which can automatically add filters to the high-resolution images uploaded by its users. For every new image that the user uploads, it would be sent to Amazon SQS and will be handled by an image processing application hosted in Lambda. The processed image would then be stored in an S3 bucket. If the upload was successful, the application will return a prompt telling the user that the upload is successful. However, the entire processing typically takes an average of 5 minutes to complete, which causes the application to become unresponsive. Which of the following is the MOST suitable and cost-effective option which will prevent your application from being unresponsive?

    Hi @vadym,

    This is Jon from Tutorials Dojo. Could you kindly clarify what you mean? Are you referring to our practice tests or the free AWS Digital Courses in our portal?

    All our practice tests are custom-made and are neither plagiarized nor copied from the official AWS certification exams. The free AWS Digital Courses hosted in our portal are actually authorized by AWS as part of their AWS Digital Training Partner Program. I am also a member of the AWS Community Builder and Developer Advocate (DevAx) program, so we are active in helping other people learn AWS.

    If you have any other concerns, feel free to contact our support team at support@tutorialsdojo.com


    Cheers,

    Hi Tarun,

    I’m not sure if it is allowed but you can try to use a Pocket WiFi device ( e.g. wifi modem/dongle) where you insert your SIM card. If you connect to your phone via a mobile hotspot, you will see that your network icon is different but if you use Pocket WiFi, the network icon is the same as you would have if you are connected to a regular WiFi.

    Once again, it’s better to contact Pearson Vue about this and the suggestion that I presented here might not totally work, so please proceed with caution. I highly suggest that you raise this to Pearson Vue if this method is acceptable.

    All the best in your exam!

    Cheers,

    Hi Rafa,

    Thank you so much for bringing this up to our attention. We have updated this minor typo and it will be reflected in our practice tests very soon.

    Have a great day ahead and happy new year!

    Hi Schong,

    Thanks for your reply. I understand your point. Some people buy our products in bulk but use our practice tests after a few months or even after more than a year. In rare scenarios, there could be some folks who may use it after 3 years after purchase but that could be counter-productive since AWS always updates its content.

    As Jane mentioned, the rationale for the 3-year validity is for the AWS recertification cycle. For example, the AWS Solutions Architect Associate exam version SAA-C01 was released last 2018, and this year, AWS launched yet another version (SAA-C02). That’s only a 2-year gap. Other certifications renew after 3 years or more.

    In comparison to a monthly subscription option offered by other cloud training providers, our offerings are quite cost-effective and fair. It does not cost you hundreds of dollars to avail of our services and you won’t be billed every month. If you want to opt for lifetime access, Udemy has that option.

    The main value of our practice tests is to empower you to pass your AWS exam in the foreseeable future. You can see in our regular announcements in this forum that we are quite diligent in updating our content. We also release new features regularly. If this is just a scam to you, I respect your decision and we are happy to refund your money. But personally, I quite disagree with that accusation. I worked day and night to provide excellent service to our customers and you can even see me extend support over Reddit. Nonetheless, I still respect your opinion.

    It’s quite unfortunate that we can’t meet your expectation. Feel free to request a refund for the items that you won’t use within 3 years.

    Regards,

    Jon Bonso

    As an additional reference, here’s how the DNSSEC feature looks like in Route 53:

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your question. Route 53 provides two functions:

    1. Domain registration

    2. DNS Service

    DNSSEC is only supported for domain registration and not when you are using Route 53 as your DNS service. If you want to use DNSSEC with Route 53, you have to use another DNS Service provider or set up your own DNS BIND Server.

    This is discussed in the provided explanation:

    Amazon Route 53 supports DNSSEC for domain registration. However, Route 53 does not support DNSSEC for DNS service, regardless of whether the domain is registered with Route 53. If you want to configure DNSSEC for a domain that is registered with Route 53, you must either use another DNS service provider or set up your own DNS server.

    This is supported by the AWS documentation:

    https://docs.aws.amazon.com/Route53/latest/DeveloperGuide/domain-configure-dnssec.html

    I understand that the answer didn’t mention anything about launching your own DNS server. I’ll revise this to: “Set up your own DNS server and enable Domain Name System Security Extensions (DNSSEC) in Amazon Route 53.” to avoid any issues.

    Thanks, Rafa for posting in our QA. For the new features and services in AWS, it won’t show up immediately as per the official AWS Certification FAQs:

    https://aws.amazon.com/certification/faqs/

    When AWS releases a new product or service, how soon will it appear on the exam?
    A new product, service, or feature must be generally available (GA) for 6 months prior to it appearing on a certification exam. Note that this applies only to certification exams, not training: training will cover new services and features more quickly. The AWS Certification team wants to ensure candidates have enough time to work with new services and features before they are assessed against the new material.
