Working with Cloud Support


  • Please contribute to making this list really awesome, exhaustive, and up to date.
  • Contributing to this list is easy: a pull request in this repo or you can also send me the info on LinkedIn or Twitter.
  • Please provide details as required by that section. Links, author names, date published, which certification(s) does it apply to, etc.
  • For book links, preferably send a search link with the book and author name. (Why? Using an link assumes that all readers are in one country and using one book seller.)

Maintaining Exam Integrity

  • Google takes the privacy of the exams very seriously.
  • If and when you write notes, do not reveal details about the exam.
    • What questions were asked?
    • How many questions on each topic?
    • Anything that compromises the integrity of the exam.
  • When one of my blog posts leaked some exam info, I was contacted by the Google Certifications Team.
  • If you find any posts that I've listed which might be a concern, please let me and also the original authors know.
