My VCAP6-DCV Deploy exam experience

Last week I passed the VCAP6-DCV Deploy exam after failing it the first time some time ago. To be completely honest, I didn’t really prepare for the first exam and obviously, I failed (by 13 points). I am not going to discuss the objectives that are covered by the exam because you can find it in the exam blueprint. I also didn’t use much of the study material that you can find on the web […]


My VCAP5-DCA exam experience

After passing the VCAP5-DCD exam a while ago, the obvious step for me was to prepare and take the VCAP5-DCA exam. So I scheduled the test on January 29 and here are some of my thoughts.

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 […]
