I've Just Finished Reading 'AWS for Admins for Dummies'
Essentially the Cliff Notes for AWS, this book explains all the main components of AWS in just 364 pages. This book is very easy to follow, as most 'Dummies' books are.
There were follow-along exercises in each chapter, which gave my some invaluable hands-on experience with all the major tools. John Paul Mueller, the author, gave an unbiased opinion of AWS as it compares to other virtual cloud providers, such as Microsoft Azure.
I'll be using everything I learned from this book, as well as my personal experience and the official AWS videos, to pass the AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner in the near future.
