    I can't say for sure but I would guess it doesn't. The test is an unproctored online exam you take at your home so I wouldn't expect any simulations. It doesn't look like it has a traditional blueprint which used to tell you exactly what to expect.

    I wouldn't even study that much. It's non-proctored and open book.

    There aren't any live or simulated lab activities in VCP level exams - you need to get to the VCAP "Deploy" exams before you'll encounter those.

    I would still recommend doing plenty of hands-on work in preparation for a VCP level exam though, as you will often find it easier to answer an exam item correctly if it's something you've actually done.

    Follow the link to the exam web page posted above to help prepare yourself.

    Best of luck!

    Guys, I got one question in regards to this exam. As a CCNP certification holder I am inclined to go this way vSphere 6 Foundation -> VCP6-NV -> VCP6-DCV. The question is, after I pass vSphere 6 Foundation exam (2v0-620) how much time do I have to prepar for VCP6-NV exam? Does vSphere 6 Foundation exam (the fact that it was passed) has an expiration period?

    There is no defined maximum time period between taking the 2 exams.

    Hello guys,

    I have just finished reading vSphere 6 Foundations Exam OCG and I'm a bit confused in regards to the exam registration process. In the book it is written that prior to registering for vSphere 6 Foundations exam I must request authorization by clicking the Request Exam Authorization link at https://mylearn.vmware.com/mgrReg/pl...80&ui=www_cert which leads to the webpage of VCP6-DCV exam registration page.

    Could someone, please, clarify if it is a typo (and indeed I need this URL https://mylearn.vmware.com/mgrReg/pl...79&ui=www_cert) or not. Also, I can't see any Request Exam Authorization links neither on VCP6-DCV Exam nor vSphere 6 Foundation Exam pages. How can I request exam authorization?

    Thank you.
    Best, sacredboy!

    The pre-authorisation process no longer exists.

    The second link you posted is for the Foundations exam, you'll see the "Schedule an Exam" option on that page to get started with the process.

    It's a non-proctored exam, so you take it online from anywhere, but that must be within 48 hours from when you schedule it.

    Hi guys,

    I found out that during VCA and Foundation exams which are non-proctored the web cam keeps an eye on the person who takes the exam for cheating prevention. I don't care about cheating but I am rather concerned about the Internet line bandwidth. Is home Internet line (1-2 mbit/s) is enough to take the exam without any lags?

    You're required to have a webcam to take the exam? Where did you see this?

    That's not correct. Some vendors require webcam for their "take at home" exams, but not VMware.

    No, it's "non-proctored" - take it from any location that has a reliable internet connection, book it within 48 hours of when you want to sit and do it.

    vSphere Foundations. VCA could be passed with a 3 hour course. vSphere foundation is way more technical.
    But VCA gives you a cert. Foundations alone does not.

    Foundations is kinda nothing without the VCP exams.

    VCA is the lowest of the certs, Foundations comes in between VCA and VCP. However, to earn the VCP, you must take Foundations regardless of VCA.

    The foundations exam tests that you under the foundation of VMware technology and then you can choose the VCP exam of the specific Silo, I.e. Datacenter or Desktop.

    That's what I think about. Initially I was keen to start my VMware journey with VCA6-DCV. However, I found that for VCP6-DCV one is required to pass vSphere 6 Foundation exam but not VCA6-DCV which made me to think that vSphere Foundation is higher than VCA6-DCV in terms of skills and knowledge. From this standpoint I believe you're right when said that vSphere Foundation is higher than VCA but of course lower than VCP. This is exactly what I tried to clarify here.

    Thanks kj0 for clarifying my thoughts.

    VCA is very much a basic certification level - it's better than having no certification at all, but that's about it. They're not very technical.

    VCP is realistically the starting point on the VMware certification ladder - you'll see it mentioned on job ads. It is a technical certification, that leads on to VCAP, VCIX, VCDX.

    vSphere Foundations is a "core" exam for all 4 of the VCPs, so it's a technical exam on foundational vSphere technologies.

    Just look through the exam objectives, and you'll see the difference:

    VCA6-DCV exam: https://mylearn.vmware.com/mgrReg/pl...80&ui=www_cert
    vSphere 6 Foundations exam: https://mylearn.vmware.com/mgrreg/pl...79&ui=www_cert

    Sorry if my question will seems to be kind of silly, just want to be on the safe side. As far as I know the exam vSphere 6 Foundation should be taken within 48 hours after registration. The question is if I register for exam tomorrow on Friday 7PM after I come back home when 48 hours will expire Sunday 7PM (that would mean weekends are included) or Tuesday 7PM (that would mean business days only). Thanks in advance.
