    I am currently studying for the Google Cloud Digital Leader certification which is one of the Foundation level exams. The course is free online and can be accessed here which is pretty awesome from Google I think. I'll do that course but I am also doing the ACloudGuru course as we have access to those in work, also very good

    I'll probably look to sit the exam next week as the material has been quite straight forward, light and high level. The cert sounds great though! We're encouraged to get Hyperscaler exams here at VMware which is really good I think

    Have you sat this one or one of the more advanced certs? What do you think?

    Just passed this. Unfortunately it didn't give me a score but I was surprised that I passed despite working on it for a while. Work wanted us to get a Hyperscaler exam by the end of the year, talk about cutting it close! I exclusively used the ACloudGuru course but did need to watch it three times for it all to sink in as it's not my usual subjects. I can't say too much because of the NDA but I had AI/ML questions which I found hard, and others around hybrid cloud, capex to opex that anyone could guess. No labs or drag and drop just questions so no experience of hands on required I don't think. This one is more concepts and higher level thinking on what would be the best fit for a business

    Ive just seen this thread @JK2447
    How are you finding Google Cloud? Spoke to one of my team who is totally against it.
    Im starting the study for this on Monday. Using the free course from Google and I think WhizzLabs. I was going to use the LinkedIn Learning course but its exactly the same as the free Google course!

    Ignore what they say, its a great cert to study for if like me, you want one of the hyperscaler certs under your belt. Are Google behind MS and AWS in the public cloud wars, yes, but will it always be that way, I doubt it. Main thing for me was that the content was enjoyable, are you enjoying it mate? And thanks man

    Ive just finished the first module and its actually really enjoyable. All about theory at the moment and no hands on. Just adjusting to how Google reference things compared to AWS but its all along the same lines. Booked the exam for the start of March so I also have a target date as well now.

    Just finished the Google course and its actually really good! Especially as its free.
    Bought a set of Practice exams off of Udemy that had a good rating. Took the first one and scored 65% which is a fail, but not a bad starting point.

    Only downside to the exams is they give you 2 Hours where as the actual exam is 90 Mins. Ive set my timer for 90 Mins and will at that. Two weeks till exam day so plenty of time to read my notes, get more tests in and see where I need to brush up.

    Nice one Jaron, yeah for free I think the course is excellent. I think all vendors should do the courses for free

    Congrats on the pass, thought I already congratulated you #facepalm

    Nice simple breakdown (without breaking the NDA), never really considered Google in that way before (apart from the Google education platform). It may be something I look into in the future :)
