This study-cum-exam guide will take you to every dimension in Terraform getting you prepared to confidently take HashiCorp's Terraform Certification exam. An extensive introduction to Terraform's architecture, covering its providers, resources, and state management features, sets the stage in the first chapter of the book. After you finish the first few chapters, you'll be behind the wheel, practicing for real-world situations with the help of several exercises.

Using CloudOptic, a made-up but believable tech corporation, as an example, you will learn the ins and outs of module development and management. Starting with the basics and working its way up to advanced topics, this book walks you through every step of a Terraform project's lifetime.

Still, it's only the start. State manipulation commands, resource targeting, and handling configuration drifts are just a few of the tough but vital topics covered thoroughly in this book. With examples and practical suggestions provided, you will learn how to work with variables, output values, dependencies, and state files.

This book will teach you all you need to know about reusable modules and more, so you can create and integrate your own. The book's inclusion of exercises and real-world scenarios further increases its usefulness by providing ample opportunity to demonstrate mastery of the material. Every level of Terraform knowledge, from the most fundamental to the most complex, is covered thoroughly, preparing you to face any problem that comes your way.
