So I've been cramming through the CSAA, and passed it easily with the Whizlabs test, so this was great!
As a "network guy" for the past 20 years, my company wanted me to do the networking as their architect specialist to speak to design and customer considerations. I thought this would be really easy, coming from many SP's, bgp, transport, and routing is nothing new to me, and after passing all the whizlabs network specialist tests at 90-96%, I took mine today. I failed fairly spectacularly, first seeing there that I just didn't pass successfully, then later seeing the score of 49%. I'm both surprised how under-prepared this left me with amazon-isms in networking/services, and a bit angry that cost me $300.
I suppose it happens Amazon changes up content, but I can honestly say probably 70-80% of what I saw were references to somewhat net-new material from the questions. Lots of scenarios and services not even mentioned in these test questions, and just a general lack of clarity from the questions on the real test vs. yours that lead me to believe the folks writing and providing material around the answers with why, don't get networking as much as they should.
There was simply a huge disparity in readiness from your test set to what was on my questions today. Beware to others if taking this soon.
Side note, I was surprised I couldn't find anyone else here with experience with this network test. Another guy in our company got his, and I think might have used these too, need to pick his brain to see if I just hit a new test set or what.
Feedback appreciated what to do next, already wasted $300 dollars today, and not comfortable going to back until I see something more like what I saw on amazon's test today at PSI.
