VCAP-DCA...passed!

I received notification today that I passed the VCAP-DCA exam!

Bang on 10 days for the results to arrive.

My wife is happy as I'm not such a 'grumpy old man'...as I was while waiting for the results.

As for the exam, it was very tough as everyone has commented on.

One word of advice...Dont rely on the PDF's in the exam. There is literally no time to look through them.

As it was I missed 3 questions due to running out of time.

Good luck for all of you who are studying towards it.

Nick.

Thanks to everyone for their messages.

Scott - I had a similar experience to you. I checked my emails on my Nokia Phone, but i couldn't view the PDF that contained my results! Had to wait until I booted the laptop up...which seemed to take ages!

I received the VCAP number on my transcript.

VCAPDCA # 314.

I was hoping for under 300 but stoked with early 300's.

Scott - I'd be interested to hear what number you get.

Cheers,

Nick.

I just got my DCD number entered into my transcript - #328. Looks like DCA numbers are quite close to the DCD numbers now.

VCAP4/5-DCD, VCAP5-DCA, CCIE

Congratulations!

VCP is great. I hope I can get mine started before I run out of cash on my home lab. :}

Let me ask you: How much of your homelab hardware experience directly applied to your VCP success? (Were there any configurations or specific ESXi features that could only be learned in real hardware?)
