REMINDER: Any VCP4’s reading my blog, remember to take the test before March 2012. After that date, you will be required to fulfill a class prerequisite to achieve the certification.
This morning, I passed the VCP 5 Exam, and I even did better than when I passed VCP 4!!!
As other bloggers have noted, VMware seems to be more in favor of making you think about real-world configuration scenarios rather than memorizing a bunch of configuration maximums and other assorted
useless, err, partially useful facts.
Although, I cannot elaborate on question content, I CAN say that you MUST know the VCP 5 Blueprint 100% to have a shot at passing the exam.
There were some vSphere features on the blueprint that I figured, “ahh, that’s no so important; let me go ahead and concentrate on the sexy features”. Wouldn’t you know that I got hit with questions about those very features that I ignored?!? LOL
So, here are my tips for getting a passing score on the exam.
- Again, know the Blueprint 100%
- practice, Practice, PRACTICE as many configuration scenarios as you can (with the variety of open-source\freeware storage appliances like OpenFiler, and the ability to run x64 VMs within virtual ESXi servers, there is NO EXCUSE for not improving your practice lab)
- Oh, and in case you didn’t see it the first time: KNOW THE BLUEPRINT
So, good luck test-takers, I look forward to the rest of you joining us VCP5’ers real soon.
……..And now to repurpose the Home & Mobile Labs for VCP-DT 🙂
