Passed the VCAP-DCA exam!

If you follow my twitter, you’ll have noticed that I finally received word that I passed the VCAP-DCA exam! I took the test back on Nov 4th, and had to wait almost a month for my results. But all is forgiven!

Some experiences from my exam:

  • Manage your time well. I actually spent too much time hunting through the provided documentation to answer a couple questions and ended up running out of time. If I had just given up on one particular question and moved on, I might have gotten 2 more right at the end that I couldn’t get to.
  • The blueprint is very important! Make sure you know everything in it.
  • When they say you need to know all the command lines, they’re not kidding.
  • Know your Distributed Virtual Switch stuff well.

Also, I can’t recommend the guides over at vFail enough – they are excellent. Make sure you go there and study before the exam.
Good luck everyone!



  1. Congrats on the pass!!
