Try to get the voucher by complete the challenge which is just 2 Qwick labs! For me I got $120 voucher which save me a lot from a fear to lose money and get nothing. 😆

2. Practise everyday

Here’s a list that you can’t skip reading, and you should keep revisit them as much as possible.

  1. Professional Data Engineer Certification exam guide
  2. Data Engineering on GCP
  3. Qwiklabs Baseline: Data, ML, AI
  4. Qwiklabs Data Engineering
  5. Preparing for the Google Cloud Professional Data Engineer Exam
  6. Partner Certification Kickstart
  7. Live Q&A office hours #1
  8. Live Q&A office hours #2
  9. Practice Exam
  10. Google Machine Learning Crash Course

3. Learn from others

Many of them are a bit outdated but still worth reading

4. Make your own cheat sheet

I did my own brain dump version via draw.io and it help a lot

FYI

  1. There’s no shortcut! I’m not a genius in any way. I just keep trying again and again (I actually had a dream to become a designer!)
  2. Don’t underestimate your brain. I’m 39 years old and it’s still function.
  3. English is a door to knowledge. I’m not a native speaker but I keep practicing every day so don’t give up especially if you were born with the English language.
  4. I just learn Machine Learning start from JAN (along with running startup) so even they recommend experienced 3 or more years in Data Engineer field, I would say self-learner and inexperienced like me still can nailed it! So you will!
  5. The questions is more like Practice Exam but 3x harder + 4x complexity. no coding, no labs just multiple choices to click through.

Fun facts

There’s only Professional Data Engineer 10 in Thailand which is seem to not accurate. At least 2 of my known friends didn’t list there.
