    Default Passed the VCA-NV

    Howdy,

    I spent 3 days watching the videos on this exam and ended up taking it. I actually didn't get too terribly great of a score but I think it partly had to do with me being REALLY tired when I took the exam and not bothering googling or looking through my notes as I answered. I passed with a 320 on the 6.2 exam so I'm happy with that. I know I haven't really expressed much of an interest in VMWare on other threads but it's sort of a dream of mine to get well rounded with some deeper virtualization, SDN, programming/scripting, and security skills like offensive security. Obviously not something I'm going to be tackling overnight but I am thinking of knocking out the VCA-DCV next and then probably attending the courses needed to take the VCP-DCV next year at some point. I also will probably go for the VCP-NV as well. I know a few folks who work in VMware education so I can bounce a couple questions off them. I'll probably be playing with HoL or setting up my own lab on the site to get extra hands on. I still plan on finishing my CCIE Security first and foremost before I go into VCP land but if you guys seen me knock out a VCP or two next year after my CCIE, it's not completely unplanned

    Thanks for all the encouragement as always.

    @kj0, sure thing. It probably won't be until the end of 2017 that I get serious about it. I'm really far along with the CCIE Security right now and something tells me that I'll need to focus a little bit more on the VCPs to pass.

    According to VPC6-DCV Requirements, you may want to take VCP-NV first otherwise you need take a required training course to take your VCP-DCV.

    Taking the VCP-NV first allows you to bypass the required training course for VCP-DCV.

    I'll probably take the courses for DCV. There are plenty of schools that offer them for cheap and I'd like to dig into the learning

    Honestly, at your level, the VCA-DCV is pretty useless. I mean, it's cheap and quick to take with no prereqs, so there's no harm in doing it. But I took the one for 5.5, and it was really more of a sales pitch than an actual technical examination. It asked a lot of questions along the lines of, "What product does this?"

    I'm shooting to get my VCP this year as well, if I can convince my employer to pay for the training class. Stanly isn't available to Hoosiers, so I'm out of luck on that front. I manage a relatively small 4-host cluster at work (soon to be 5 or 6, if our offsite replication plan goes through), so I think my practical knowledge would make it pretty easy to get through the material in a reasonable amount of time.
