I was scheduled to take the VCAP5-DCA exam on 4 Oct 2012.
When I arrived at the testing center I signed in and the sign in says I was scheduled for VCAP5-DCA. The test proctor sat me down at the computer and logged me in and I completed the survey. I finished the survery and clicked next to start the exam. After that a screen came up and told me that the questions and environment were based on vSphere 4. I knew that something was wrong so I called over the test proctor and she called Pearson Vue and the person on the phone told me to continue to see what the environment looked like. So I continued and determined that the environment was vSphere 5. At that point I thought everything was ok, but I still had a gut feeling that the questions were VCAP4-DCA questions. So the person on the phone and the test proctor told me to continue on with the exam, but as I continued with the questions I knew the questions were based on vSphere 4 (VCAP4-DCA). If I had version VCAP5-DCA questions then I would have had only 26 questions, but my exam had 34 questions, so I knew I did not have the correct versions. One question even asked to configure something on the vMA that is no longer possible in vSphere 5 vMA. There were many questions that did not match up with the lab enviroment. There were questions that asked me to do something to a VM, but that VM was not there. There were so many other things like that. I called over the test proctor again and told her, but she told me I had to continue on and file and incident report at the end. I filed an incident report and yesterday I was told by Pearson Vue that there was nothing wrong with the exam or questions.
I was originally scheduled for VCAP4-DCA exam and then changed it to the VCAP5-DCA exam. After the exam was over and I called Pearson Vue about in incident report, they told me that there was a confusion because I had originally signed up for VCAP4-DCA and they think that the testing center was never given that information, but in the end PearsonVue said they did there investigation and nothing was wrong with the exam. I just don't see how this is possible when the beginning screen said it was based on vSphere 4.
I feel that my $400 was wasted because I was given the wrong exam and now Pearson Vue wont help me.
I sent an email to email@example.com and I am waiting there response.
Is there anything else I can do?
