New Exam AWS Certified Solutions Architect - Associate

0 votes

While booking for the SAA exam I saw a new version of exam. Its duration is 130 mins. I have few doubts -

-Is this the beta exam that was launched last year?

-Has anyone taken this exam?

if yes -

  • How many questions are there in new exam?

  • Is this course still relevant w.r.t new exam?

Thanks

Amazon publishes details of both exams on their web site. The new exam looks like a better choice than the previous exam. Given the statement:

"We have recently updated this exam to cover new services and architectural best practices."

I would take the new exam as this better fits with current AWS services and features.

Note: People who take the exam are not allowed to provide details of the exam. I have not taken the new exam. I have the SA Pro, so I am automatically recertified for the associate.

  • Number of questions: 65 (compared to 60 for the older exam)

  • Time to complete exam: 130 minutes (compared to 80 mins for the older exam)

However, given the new longer time to complete the exam and fewer questions, I expect that the questions are harder and better thought out than the previous exam (which sometime made me ask "Who wrote that question?").
