Hello, I am interested to pass "vSphere 6.5 Foundations" exam but i cannot find any courses or materials to prepare for the exam. I need your help please! appreciate your fast reply. Thank you.
Firstly, I've moved this thread to the VCP area.
Regarding the exam, start with the exam guide - which you can download from this page: vSphere 6.5 Foundations Exam
I'm in a similar situation. Besides the blueprint (which seems suspiciously similar to the 6.0 blueprint) I've been using the very helpful hands-on labs to get actual experience with the web client UI.
In addition I found the vmware walkthroughs helpful since they have a section dedicated to 6.5.
Other than those 6.5-specific resources I've been reading the 6.0 exam prep book which is a good overall refresher.
The large table of links in Section 3 of the exam guide takes you to suitable study material - it's collated by the same group of people who actually write the exam items, and they use those resources to validate the items.
I can understand that some concepts have not changed since 5.0 but the exam guide's reference table has a lot of old to very old KB articles. This does not inspire confidence! Is there anybody that has passed the foundation exam just by studying with the exam guide? I know this is an open-book exam but would love to be prepared to take the DCV exam for 6.5 - but looking at my option this would be:
My instructor tells me I should not worry, based on my previous and current experience, but my VCP5 did not come easy and this does not seem to be any different. I did one-shot the exam but had excellent resources from my course.
I am also looking for excellent study materials but did not find anything, i guess vmware is doing this in purpose (paying $4000) to attend the course.
I would be grateful if you share with us the excellent exam resources from your course to pass the foundation exam (at least i pass this exam until i have enough money to pay for the $4000 course).
Thank you !
Of course, and please do the same as I can use all the help I can get with my exam in less than 2 weeks!
If you have Pluralsight they have a good course on 6.5
And if you don't have a subscription they offer a 10 day free trial.
They have a 28 hour long VCP-DCV training path, but it's around 6.0. Still might be good for an overall vSphere foundation.
Is there a reason you need the 6.5 Foundations exam? Is it for practical use or just for certification purposes?
The reason I ask is because the vSphere 6.0 Foundations exam will count towards the VCP6.5-DCV certification. Since there is more material out for the 6.0 exam, that may be easier to study. That's the route I went. I just took the vSphere 6.0 Foundtaions exam and am working on studying for the VCP6.5-DCV exam.
Just wanted to make you aware of that as an option if you are trying to get the VCP6.5-DCV exam.
That's a really good idea 🙂
