Explaining the AWS Cloud Practitioner Exam

Keywords: Fkrxua Cc:


The [AWS Cloud Practitioner]( exam covers the basics of using Amazon Web Services, with a specific focus on Amazon’s cloud computing services and features, such as AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM), Amazon CloudFront?, Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC), Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2), and Storage Gateway.

If you are new to AWS, this exam is a great place to start; if you’re already experienced with AWS, you can use this exam to validate your skills and deepen your knowledge of the platform.

What is the AWS CPT certification?

The AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner (CPT) certification is a technical exam that validates your overall understanding of the Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud. The exam is extensive, covering various topics like computing, networking, storage, and security. To earn your CPT certification, you must pass an exam consisting of multiple-choice and multiple-response questions. Study your chosen topic areas carefully before you register for your exam. You can find an overview of exam topics and descriptions in our official AWS CPT study guide. If you are aiming for certification, I also recommend taking an online training course to help you learn about specific topics on which you will be tested. Once you register for your exam, you will be able to study and test with the tools that are provided. The test has 100 questions that must be completed within 90 minutes. You can take notes and pause your exam if needed, but you may not change your answers once you submit them. Where you live determines the cost of your exam. As of July 2015, pricing for U.S. residents is as follows: $150 for CPTA (AWS Certified Developer Associate), $250 for CPA (AWS Certified Professional Administrator), and $250 for CPT (AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner). If you are a member of an AWS Partner Network (APN) partner, contact them directly to see if they offer exam discounts or other incentives.

Why should you get this certification?

With the AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner certification, individuals demonstrate an understanding of the AWS Cloud regardless of the specific technical roles addressed by other AWS certifications. In other words, if you want to understand what the cloud is and how it works, this is the exam for you. It’s important to note that you don’t need to be working in IT or even have a background in computer science to take and pass the exam. Anyone can apply, provided they meet all of Amazon Web Services' eligibility requirements.

You should also keep in mind that a certification is not required to become an AWS Certified Solutions Architect or an AWS Certified Developer. If you plan on taking those exams, you might want to first consider spending some time studying for them instead. So how exactly do you prepare for a certification exam that’s designed to measure your overall knowledge of cloud computing? Because there are no specific technical skills required, you don’t need to worry about honing in on any one area. Rather, your focus should be on brushing up on foundational concepts like virtualization and platform as a service.

There’s one last thing to keep in mind as you prepare for your exam. While you’ll find most of what you need in Amazon Web Services documentation, many people like to take practice tests to make sure they’re not only familiar with what they need to know, but also comfortable enough with it that they can explain cloud computing on their own.

What do you need to know before taking the test?

The AWS Cloud Practitioner exam is designed to test your knowledge of the basic concepts and features of Amazon Web Services (AWS). You should have a basic understanding of cloud computing and AWS before taking the exam. The AWS certification track includes four different exams: Architecting on AWS, Implementing on AWS, Scaling and Managing with AWS, and now Practicing on AWS. Each exam assesses a specific skill set within one of four core functional areas.

To pass an exam, you need to get at least 70 percent of the questions right in each section. There are no trick questions! You don’t need to memorize answers or use reference materials while taking an exam, but you can use them during preparation. AWS Certifications are a great way to show prospective employers that you have a thorough understanding of how cloud computing works and that you’re up-to-date on all of AWS’s features. Passing an exam is just one part of preparing for your career in IT. Certification won’t teach you everything you need to know, but it will provide a solid foundation. You’ll need to demonstrate all of these skills in order to pass. There are no shortcuts or special tricks to know; all you need is a solid understanding of AWS and a little practice before taking an exam. You can read more about how to prepare for an exam on Amazon’s website, but here are some pointers that might help: Learn where your knowledge gaps lie: If you aren’t sure what you don’t know, it might be time for some self-reflection. If you’re a newbie to cloud computing, now is a great time to take online courses or go back to school. There are lots of free and inexpensive resources out there; make sure you spend time on your weakest areas first, as they’ll be what trip you up most during an exam. You can also search around for relevant books or articles that might help you get some last-minute studying in.

Where can you take the test?

The AWS Cloud Practitioner exam is available online and can be taken at any time. It consists of 50 fill-in-the-blank questions, and the entire test must be completed within 90 minutes. Scores of 70% or higher are required to pass the exam.

How much does it cost? (two sentences): The cost of the exam is $100 USD. Retaking the exam costs $50 USD.

When will you start to work on this project? (one sentence) The exam is available whenever, wherever, any time of day, or night. It’s best to plan your study around your own schedule but you don’t have to wait until you feel ready before scheduling your exam. When choosing a date and time for your exam, keep in mind that there is at least a 48-hour waiting period before taking an exam again after failing. How much does it cost? There is a $100 USD fee to take the exam, with an additional $50 USD if you need to retake it. When can you take it? You can access the test 24/7 through the internet and should plan according to your own schedule but no matter when you decide to register for the test, make sure not to take another exam within 48 hours of failure.

How can you prepare for the test?

You should have a strong understanding of the basic concepts of cloud computing in order to prepare for the AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner exam. To build your knowledge, we recommend starting with the free Introduction to Cloud Computing course from AWS. After you’ve completed that course, we recommend taking a look at other courses on cloud computing topics such as computing and Networking or Storage and Databases. In addition to helping build your knowledge, taking these courses will provide you with in-depth exposure to many of AWS’s core services. Also, make sure to check out our Tips for Successful Self-Study resource which provides advice on how to structure your studying time for maximum results. Additionally, you can improve your chances of success by working through our free sample questions, which include many that simulate what you might encounter on test day. Taking these will give you a sense of what kinds of questions and difficulty levels to expect on exam day. And don’t forget to practice answering all question types! After you’ve done these exercises, we recommend that you schedule a mock exam with your local training provider or an official testing center like Prometric. With a mock exam, you can simulate what it’s like to take a certification exam, which can help give you confidence as you get ready for test day.



The AWS Cloud Practitioner exam is a great way to learn about Amazon Web Services and cloud computing. It addresses topics such as networking, security, and storage. The exam is also relatively easy to pass, making it a great option for those who are new to the world of cloud computing. But if you don’t know much about cloud computing, you should start with one of Amazon’s other exam options. The AWS Certified Solutions Architect Associate (2018) exam will prepare you for more advanced certifications and takes a deeper dive into architecture design, while the AWS Certified Developer Associate (2018) exam focuses on fundamental programming skills. Either of these exams will provide a strong foundation for your education in cloud computing and give you valuable experience that can be applied to your future studies. Amazon offers a variety of other exams and certifications, including solutions for people who have a lot of experience in enterprise computing. The AWS Certified Solution Architect Professional exam is geared toward IT professionals who want to specialize in cloud solutions. There’s also an exam specifically for system administrators, called AWS Certified SysOps? Administrator Associate (2018). If you have more programming experience, Amazon offers an associate-level developer certification that focuses on managing APIs and web services.
