  • Requirements for VCP exam

    I am new to vshere and currently learning it by using David Davis Training Video,

    Those successful VCPs can you please suggest what else I need to do pass this exam? is there something else I need to read?

    In a recent thread on this site Dumber has suggested reading PDFs harder then course ware, what PDFs you are referring to Dumber?

    BTW, my belated congratulation on you recent VCP certification,

    Is there any place where I can get exam Qs?

    Also in David Davis's video he suggested that you need to be enroll in to VMware's classroom training to pass this exam, what is he referring to? do you have to pay for this training?

    To pass the exam you do not enroll in a class.

    To get the VCP certification you will need to have to complete a Official VMware course

    You can try Simon Long's Blog for some good study notes for VCP 4

      Study, study, study the documentation located on VMware's website. Located HERE. Pay attention to the Installation Guide, ESX Configuration Guide, FC SAN Guide, etc...

      Also download and read through the exam blue print guide. Located HERE. You will need to create a VMware Education Login to download it.

      There is a mock exam on VMware's website, located HERE. Again a VMware Education Login will be required.

      Hope that helps,

        Thank you Jason and Maish, it is clear now how pass the VCP exam,

        offcial course that you must take to pass this exam here in Canada is $3500,

        This is not good from VMware, I hope they will have some sort of self study option,

        I will see if I can get my company approved this training class, two person IT team we have is new to the virtualization world and we are thinking of using SAN and Virtualization,

          I personally think its a good thing and will hopefully help preserve the integrity of the VCP certification.

            I too think this will keep the integrity of the Cert and keep the "Paper VCP's" at bay..
