Might be a duplicate of this one:

To answer your question, my main study resource is Linux Academy's Ansible video course. I also plan to use Sander's Ansible Fundamentals live lessons, and official Ansible documentation. This should cover the exam objectives.

I've seen a number of suggestions for external resources for exam preparation. 

Do you feel that a Red Hat solution would better serve your objectives?

@ricardodacostaA Red Hat solution is basically RHLS, but unless you can afford it, you inevitably search for external resources that are cheaper. I'm not promoting LA or Sander's material here, but let us be fair, these video courses are decent, and, this is the most important part, affordable.

@Lisenet

I'm envisioning a similar product from Red Hat, which will complete with LA, Sander, Michael Jang.

So I'm trying to gauge interest ;-)
