Upgrade to VCDX5 DONE !!


Yesterday I had an VCAP5-DCD VMware exam in GlobalKnowledge education center in Wokingham. So, since today I’m VCDX5 too 🙂 .I had to take it this year otherwise my voucher would expired (BTW, VMware – thanks for 100% discount voucher). I had 94 questions + 6 design questions and 4 hrs and 15 minutes to complete them. With some problems I was able to complete all question 20 minutes before dead line. Mentioned problems started around question number 70, when bloody FLASH plugin crashed and design question (question #70) which I completed was lost :-/. After 15 minutes (clock was ticking !) I was able to start from the question where problems started, unfortunately I had to  complete question #70 one more time, in total I lost 25 minutes (15 minutes waiting + 10 minutes to complete question again).

Few tips:
  • learn from blueprint – you don’t need anything in addition (except hands on experience in design)
  • you need to have experience with design – you can’t learn everything from books
  • don’t skip blueprint section – you can be sure you will get at least 5 questions from each section
  • reserve at least 15 minutes per design question
