I passed GCP Professional Cloud Architect exam.
Actually I haven’t touched Cloud services at work. But Cloud service’s knowledge and experiences are required to proceed my career as Web application engineer and develop my web applications I think.
I have around 9 years experiences as Web application engineer, so Professional Cloud Architect exam is my first Google Cloud Certified exam but I thought I can pass somehow.
I spent around 1.5 months for study. Mainly I used Qwiklabs .
Qwiklabs provides hands-on E-learning courses. So, it’s easy to understand for me.
I’ll share how did I study for Professional Cloud Architect for note to self and who is thinking to try to challenge GCP Professional Cloud Architect exam.
The followings are what I did.
A GCP book (I red a Japanese book. So, I don’t share sorry. Please search an entry level book.)
Qwiklabs “Cloud Architecture: Design, Implement, and Manage” was difficult for me and I got stuck sometimes.
I googled blog articles and proceeded.
I felt Cousera course “Preparing for the Google Cloud Professional Cloud Architect Exam” is very old and first half was focusing on mindset. So, I was trying to quit but practice problems and mock test (it’s different from official mock test) were very good.
No. 7 ~ 13 (Dataproc/PubSub/BigQuery/Dataflow/Bigtable/CloudSpanner/Terraform/Firebase/セキュリティ) are to study functions which No. 1 ~ 6 don’t taught me much but they are in mock test or No. 1 ~ 6.
After passing the exam I could get GCP stuff. I chose this parker.
I hope this article helps who is thinking to try GCP Professional Cloud Architect exam.
