My VCAP5-DCA exam experience

VCP5 Exam Experience.

Today, I passed the VMware VCP-510 exam at The Academy in Eindhoven and here are my thoughts about this exam. The exam consists of 85 questions, mostly multiple-choice and some with an exhibit.

The exam blueprint covers all topics. The questions are different as […]
