You will need to pass 2 exams:

vSphere Foundations (code 2V0-620)

VCP6-DCV (code 2V0-621)

If you follow the links above for each exam you'll see that the ICM class aligns to the Foundations exam, but there is also an Optimize & Scale class that aligns to the VCP exam. You'll find exam objectives, practice exams, and other resources on the above pages too.


In terms of gaining any extra knowledge you will need, you can buy books such as Mastering vSphere 6, or you can take the Optimize & Scale training from VMware.


I have a page on my VMware Training & Certification blog which should help, and you'll find some additional practice questions on the Elastic Sky blog.

Yes the ICM lecture material will help you with the Foundations exam as I mentioned before. Expand the Exam Topics section of the Foundations exam page to see what knowledge you'll need to have for that exam. Note you may need to do additional study and hands-on to become proficient in every exam topic.

You would get the Optimize & Scale lecture material if you took that class with VMware, just like you did the ICM material. If you decide not to take that class, you will have to rely on other materials such as the Mastering vSphere book I linked to or the vSphere documentation.

Looks like the 621 and 621D practice exams are the same - each exam has it's own page and the "practice exam" link on both pages are the same URL.

I'm referring to this page for the 621 exam: VMware Certified Professional 6 – Data Center Virtualization Exam

I don't think you understood what I said - the practice exam for 621 IS the practice exam for 621D.

Here's the 621 page: https://mylearn.vmware.com/mgrReg/plan.cfm?plan=64180&ui=www_cert

Here's the 621D page: VMware Certified Professional 6 – Data Center Virtualization Delta Exam

Go to either page, click "How to Prepare", and the link for the practice exam on BOTH pages points to this URL: myLearn

There are some unofficial practice questions here: http://www.elasticsky.co.uk/practice-questions/

Those questions are one of a number of community contributions that I link to from this post on my blog: VMware Training and Certification: VCP6-DCV Information and Preparation
