VCP6-DCA Have I missed my chance to do the Delta exam online? I don't seem to be able to find the link anymore? Some time ago I recollect registering for the VCP6 Delta exam, I vaguely recollect getting a link to do the exam online. I had the link handy but pushed it to the back of my to-do list since I was at the time studying for the VCAP5 (which sadly I just failed). Now I have received an email stating my VCP5 will expire in 30 days so I would like to upgrade however now I cant for the life of me get to the same page that formerly seemed to allow me to do the Delta exam online, any idea's?
I see this in my "Getting Started"
|VCP6-DCV Delta Exam (2V0-621D)|
There is no VCP6-DCA, but given your interest in the Delta exam it's VCP6-DCV that you wish to gain, and I assume it's your VCP5-DCV that expires soon.
The final version (not beta version) of the exam launched a couple of days ago - have a look here: VMware Certified Professional 6 – Data Center Virtualization Delta Exam
Yea I click on the link from my exam authorizations then sign in with my candidate ID add my contact information and then I get ...

But I got this early this morning (the first time I have logged in for ages) I'm sure a month or so back I simply had the option of starting an online exam
This sometimes happens when you take advanced level exams (You said you took the VCAP exam)... I had a similar issue after I took my VCAP exam and took another VCP. Contact Pearson Vue and they will sort this out for you and then you can take the exam. I think it is because when you take advanced level exams you get another candidate ID and the system gets fubar'd.
I feel your pain!
I had to open a trouble ticket with Pearson Vue and VMware Education to get it resolved….. 6 calls, 2 web chats, 1 Facebook message and a tweet later, I finally got it sorted and booked my exam. Take a look at VMware VCP 550 Delta Exam (VCP550D). Passed! Surreal exam experiences
Yes. The Delta exam focuses on the newer features of that exam making the assumption that you already know the foundations. Because of this there is assumed knowledge, so if you haven't kept up to date or haven't used the product regularly it would be worthwhile refreshing your knowledge there too.
The Delta exam is shorter and covers fewer objectives: 65 questions in 90 minutes versus 85 questions in 100 minutes.
The exam is proctored, so is normally delivered at a Pearson Vue Test Centre but read Jill's comments at VCP6-DCV Certification Now Available - VMware Education and Certification Blog - VMware Blogs The website hasn't been updated, so I would suggest contacting VMware Education to get a definitive answer.
The link for 2V0-621D has already been posted, here's the link for VCP550D: Delta Exam - New VCP-DCV Exam
You definitely take VCP550D online.
Well I got this generic rubbish back from Pearson VUE customer services, not convinced they read my email :smileycry:
Thank you for contacting Pearson VUE.
We have received your request to add the VMware Testing Program to your existing Pearson VUE account. Unfortunately we are unable to complete this request due to recent changes in the VMware exam authorization process.
Last year, VMware began requiring new Candidate IDs (beginning in “VMW-“) and pre-authorization for their exams. When you were given your Candidate ID, VMware created a new testing account for you within the Pearson VUE database that has your ID and pre-approved exam file already loaded onto it. This account is specific to VMware, Inc. testing and requires a unique username for access. Unfortunately, your VMware Inc. testing account cannot be combined with any other profile in the Pearson VUE system. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience.
To access your VMware Inc. testing account:
If you continue to have difficulty accessing your VMware Inc. testing account, please respond to this email and include the following details so we may locate your profile and authorization:
Immediate assistance is available via Live Chat at http://www.pearsonvue.com/vmware/contact/.

Go through the authorisation process for the exam again now, and if there are any problems with that email firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank-you for your help/advice Scott I really appreciate it. Sadly when I try to re-request authorization for either the VCP6-DCV Delta Exam (2V0-621D) or the VCP5-DCV Delta Exam (VCP550D) I get the below I will shoot them an email, I hope this wont leave me with an impossibly tight deadline to study for the exam. I will email email@example.com@vmware.com with a link to this post also to see if they can help.
Error! The test you requested is unavailable.
Course: VCP5-DCV Delta Exam (VCP550D)
Explanation: You already have an existing authorization, please go to the Getting Started section to view it.
Just tried the Pearson link again for the VCP6-DCV Delta Exam (2V0-621D) and got this instead of the previous? Maybe its fixed now, did you pull some strings Scott thank you if you did and or regardless. Going to try the VCP5-DCV Delta Exam (VCP550D) now also, wish me luck
Seems the system can only handle one request at a time, I was hoping to have the VCP5-DCV Delta Exam (VCP550D) lined up simultaneously as a plan B. Panicking a bit now about the prospect of loosing my certification. Given the effort I already put into the VCAP that would suck big time
