[Share]My Experience with passing ACP-Cloud Certification Exam:

Dear All,
 
My Experience for ACP- Cloud Exam:
This Week (31st Dec 2018) I took the Alibaba cloud Computing Professional (ACP- Cloud 01) Exam and I successfully passed the exam
with 78 Marks whereas passing mark was 65. There was total 70 questions and time was 90 Minute for the exam scheduled on Pearson Vue exam Centre. As I had strong background on cloud computing experience on public cloud and certified with Microsoft MCSE on Azure cloud computing, so it was ease for me to get prepared for the Alibaba ACP Cloud exam.

How I prepared for the Alibaba ACP -Cloud Exam?
Below are few things I tried and helped me to get certified on Alibaba ACP exam:
 
Step 1:  Online training courses:
I purchased online training module “Alibaba Cloud Certification Course - Cloud Computing” and go through it. I watched all the videos seriously and explore the corresponding documentations on the portal. eg. How to stuff, limitation, Security integration
and Cost management etc of the Alibaba cloud services. Once “Alibaba Cloud Certification Course - Cloud Computing” completed it created more interest on me to read more and do some practical stuff on the portal.

Same time I also enrolled on the Apsara Clouder specialist courses modules. It was 12 courses module and each model required to pass the exam end of the course and I wenthrough all the models and pass all the specialist exams. (I was nominated for prize on top 50 students for completing all the models on Christmas 2018) Which helped me a lot on ACP exam preparations.
Step 2: Practice on Cloud services:

I launched ECS instances, createednapshot/images, explore OSS, setup SLB, Auto scaling, explored the CDN and other Security services eg. Anti- DDOS, WAF etc.  I also practiced the handson labs on Labex.io which was again helpful.

Step 2:  Offline Training:

 I enrolled for Alibaba cloud offline training ( ACT81002) scheduled on 18th December 2018 in Delhi India. This training was partially helpful for me, especially on ACA exam. Trainer was expert on the technology and answered all my high-level questions on Alibaba cloud services.
Same day I had ACA-Cloud exams and I passed the ACA- Cloud Exam with 84 Marks.

About Exam?
 
Personally, I faced lots of other exams for various other certification, So this siting not scared me. I started studding the Alibaba cloud since long and stopped study on 29th Dec. Normally I do not study two days prior to exam because it confuses me a lot during exam. Last moment study always creates confusions to me.
 
First, I registered for the exam on Person Vue for 31st Dec 2018 dated. Using below link.
http://pearsonvue.com/alibaba
 
During exam I feel free, I was not scared about exam because I had confident on study and on my methods which I generally used for the exams (mentioned above).
I noticed the questions was small scenario and some logic based. Specially on ECS, OSS, CDN, SLB, Auto scaling, Security and some other fundamental cloud computing based. Most of the questions was good and relavant. But there was some question which was very confusing due to double negative statements, using the term “NOT” “Incorrect” “Wrong” etc words confused on the questions. So the question needed to read carefully.
There were three types of questions:
·        Single answer.
·        Multiple answer.
·        True/ False.


Exam tips:
ACP Exam questions are grouped around cloud technologies, which makes answers easy for the cloud professionals.
Most of the True/ False questions have double negative statements, so reading the question carefully can only help.
70 questions for the ACP exam seems too much questions but more questions help to pass the exam easily.
Do not worry about the exam only be serious on the study and explore all the relevant cloud services as much as you can.
 
Best of Luck to all the guys who registered for the exam also feel free to ask any related question you would like to ask me.
Thank you!
Cheers and Happy New Year 2019.
Sanjay
