Two weeks ago I passed the Google ACE exam. With a success in this exam, I earned the Associate Cloud Engineer credentials. This was a great experience as I did it in a very short time due to my professional requirement. I would like to share my experience with you.
Before I begin my exam story, let me introduce myself to you. I am an IT professional at a very initial level of my career. I did my bachelor's in computer science three years ago. For few months, I searched for a job but was unable to find one. At that time I was interested to start a career in the network field. A friend of mine already being a professional, suggested me to do some certification to somehow compensate for the experience deficiency. After some research, I selected CompTIA Network+. It was my first experience with a certification exam but my friend guided me very well with the procedure and pro tips. Within two months I was able to pass the exam and earn the certification.
After few months I got a job as an Assistant Network Administrator in a knitwear manufacturing and an export company. It is my second year in the company. Last month the HR Manager of my company called me for a meeting. He told me about the new positions in the company. He said that I can be a good candidate for me provided I can get some mandatory credentials. He told me that I can apply for the position of assistant cloud administrator by securing the Google Associate Cloud certification.
I consented and got back. I then started looking for the details of the certification. For the exam training material of the Google ACE exam, I selected DumpsTool as I have already had a good experience with it. I selected the complete PDF + Testing Engine package from DumpsTool. If you are new to DumpsTool let me tell you that DumpsTool offers a money-back guarantee for all the training material they provide. It makes it a secure deal for you as well as it reflects the confidence they have with the training material they provide.
In my personal experience, I found the braindumps from DumpsTool to be very accurate and updated. With all the Associate-Cloud-Engineer exam dumps training material from DumpsTool, I was able to complete my preparation for the Google ACE exam. I took the exam and passed it on my first attempt. So in just 4 weeks, I was able to earn the Google Associate Cloud Engineer credentials. One more thing, Yesterday was my first day in my new position.
Following is an overview of the certification and the exam.
