To make something like this thread http://communities.vmware.com/thread/319033, let's try to build a list of VCP4-DT people?

70. KellyOlivier - @kjolivier
86. EricMonjoin @emonjoin
142. Tamas Szabo
Post in this thread or send me a PM and I will try to keep the list
So seems that there are really few VCP-DT people... Maybe for this reason the requirement of VCA-DT has been removed?!
When did they remove the requirement? Im still waiting for my actual VCP4-DT #. PearsonVue takes forever to finally update your transcript. Im sitting VCP5 this Sunday and then am considering starting the VCAP exams, but may wait for them to change over to vSphere5. Id hate to cram for ESX classic related commands and configs that don't really apply anymore since every client I visit is in the process or already has switched to ESXi.
Although I haven't touched view in well over a month I need to take this and get a low number. I figured that now the VCA wasn't a requirement that the VCP-DT numbers would be through the roof, I apparently guessed wrong.
As you have written in the other thread, the *-DT exams are not easy and are more difficult that VCP exams.
Also there are less people that work with View.
An maybe some are waiting for the *5-DT series?!
Probably those are the reasons of why the numbers are low.
Some weeks later you will receive an email with all the steps to add your certification in your transcript.
