Please read the article below to see how I managed to clear the VCAP Deploy exam. Both offer a different set of challenges. The VCAP deploy is all hands on and navigation of vCenter and deep diving into creating and managing storage networking vMotion alarms RPO and backups.
The VCAP Design was a different beast and proved very challenging. The exam is heavily weighted towards project management and getting to terms with the best design decisions which can be made for a wide range of scenarios. While I was studying, I found the vBrownbag video series invaluable.
Here is the blue print I created in an easy to follow org chart.
It is very easy to go wrong in the exam. It will take you a full 2 hours to complete. I had
20 minutes to spare at the end as this was the second time I have taken the exam. If you have finished the exam after 20 minutes
then you have likely failed. Each
question I gave a comment for each part of the question and gave my reasons for
making the choice. So you will be taking your time reading and
rereading each question and justifying your answers. The training material was a massive amount
of learning and it took me places I never would have gone: ). Overall I got great benefit and insight from
My preparation had taken me to a state where I couldn’t have done much more so I was quietly confident.
On to the VCDX dare I say it !!! 😊
