  1. Hello Anthony,

    I am currently enjoying your Udemy course regarding the AWS Certified Solutions Architect Associate 2023 Edition.

    I noticed the reviews for section 1 (The Basics of Cloud and AWS) and section 3 (Resilient Architectures) are the same video (section 3 is actually labeled “Section 2 Review”). Is there an actual review for section 3? I find them very helpful.

    I appreciate your time and consideration!
