As an AI language model, Chat-GPT 4 has been making waves in the field of natural language processing with its high-level language understanding and output. I recently stumbled upon this model and I wondered how I could effectively use it to prepare for my AWS Solutions Architect exam. Here is how I approached using Chat-GPT 4 to help me study for my exam.

Creating a Study Plan

To begin, I needed a guide for the AWS exam. I downloaded the exam guide from the AWS website, which highlighted the domains that the exam covered. I wanted to break each domain down into manageable study sessions that I could cover weekly. So, I inputted my first domain into Chat-GPT 4 and asked it to break it down into 30-minute study sessions I could cover over the next week.


The output from Chat-GPT 4 was impressive and relevant. I copied and pasted this into a spreadsheet using Numbers and added a checkbox to track each session.


Expanding on the Study Plan

I then tackled the study plan with lesson one by setting a 30-minute timer and asking Chat-GPT 4 to expand on day 1, topic one. Chat-GPT 4 outputted various links to YouTube videos and documentations that were relevant to the topic. I followed the links and even though it took longer than 30 minutes to read and locate some of the expired links, I was able to study the various components.

Taking a Quiz

Chat-GPT 4 was able to mimic the typical AWS exam format, providing accurate and useful information. I then asked it to quiz me on the same topic to ensure I had a comprehensive understanding of the topic. I was surprised at how well it mimicked the exam question format, just like the one I remember when I took the practitioner exam a while back.

Key Takeaways

Although Chat-GPT 4 provided useful links and comprehensive information, I plan to supplement my studies by taking the AWS practice exams through the learning site on AWS. I was impressed with how Chat-GPT 4 broke down my study plan into manageable sessions and insights. With the help of the output from Chat-GPT 4, I was able to create a plan for the rest of the month.
