You can opt to start a Full Compliance Exam or tailor your testing experience. Each question answered incorrectly will be transformed into a repetition task with the following day as the due date, enabling you to easily review concepts that are not yet familiar to you.

Practice Exam Scope

The Practice Exam is fully compatible with the official exam scope and covers all concepts, services, and domains specified in the official exam guide.

For the AWS Certified Developer - Associate - DVA-C02 exam, the questions are categorized into one of 4 domains, which are further divided into tasks. AWS structures the questions in this way to help learners better understand exam requirements and focus more effectively on domains and tasks they find challenging. This approach aids in learning and validating preparedness before the actual exam. With the simulator, you can customize the exam scope by concentrating on specific domains.
