    There are few things which needs to be studied learned and understand to have a griping knowledge of that particular thing. But here are some things which u dot need to know to learn AWS 
    . The AWS Command Line Interface (CLI)
    As per the AWS documentation:
    The AWS Command Line Interface (CLI) is a unified tool to manage your AWS services. With just one tool to download and configure, you can control multiple AWS services from the command line and automate them through scripts.
    The AWS CLI is a great tool for accomplishing all kinds of tasks quickly and efficiently. You can list your account users, display an S3 bucket’s size and contents, or test one of your CloudFormation templates. If it can be done, it can almost certainly be done better from the CLI. Don’t believe me? Take a look at my AWS CLI: 10 useful commands you may not know post.
    Nevertheless, I have yet to see a CLI-related question in the AWS Certified Solutions Architect exam sample questions, the AWS Certified Solutions Architect practice exam, or the full AWS Certified Solutions Architect exam itself. So don’t expect to see something like
    What does this do?

    1 aws s3 rb s3://bucket-name –force
    By the way, in case you are wondering, the above command deletes an S3 bucket and all of its contents
    2. Mobile Services (except Amazon SNS)
    The following services are described in AWS documentation as Mobile Services:
    • Amazon Cognito
    • Amazon Mobile Analytics
    • Amazon SNS
    • AWS Mobile SDK for Android
    • AWS Mobile SDK for iOS
    • AWS Mobile SDK for Unity
    But, besides SNS, I haven’t seen a single question relating to any of them in any AWS Certified Solutions Architect exam. You will need to understand SNS well, mind you, but I think you can confidently and safely ignore the rest.
    3. Enterprise Applications
    The following services are described as Enterprise Applications:
    • Amazon WorkSpaces
    • Amazon WAM
    • Amazon WorkDocs
    • Amazon WorkMail
    Again: not a whisper about any of ’em in the exam. As a matter of fact, Amazon WorkMail is still only available as a preview…and, even then, only for those lucky few whose requests are granted.
    4. Lambda and CodeDeploy
    AWS Lambda is a zero-administration compute platform with a fine-grained pricing structure for back-end web developers that runs code in the AWS cloud for you. AWS CodeDeploy is a deployment service that helps developers automate application deployments and management. Once again, you won’t find a word about either in your AWS Certified Solutions Architect Exam. This may not be true of the AWS Certified Developer or DevOps exams.
