VMware Certified Advanced Professional 5 – Data Center Administration – PASSED!

Written by Pawel Lakomski on Grudzień 13th, 2013

After two weeks of waiting for my exam results I am proud to say I have passed the exam. Next one on the list is VCAP – DCD. The exam was surprisingly easy but I run out of time and I didn’t manage to finish everything.

This are the resources I used to prepare myself for the exam:

1. Exam blueprint

2. Study guides – I used several ones, mostly;

Professional VMware’s An UnOfficial VCAP-DCA 5 Study Guide

Paul Grevink’s Adventures in a Virtual World VCAP5-DCA Diaries

3. Pluralsight’s courses:

VMware vSphere Troubleshooting series by  David Davis
VMware vSphere Optimize & Scale by Jason Nash

4. VMware training and documentation:

VMware vSphere: Troubleshooting Workshop [V5.1]

VMware Hands-On Labs

VMware vSphere 5 documentation

5. Books

VMware vSphere 5.1 Clustering Deepdive by Duncan Epping and Frank Denneman

VCAP5-DCA Official Cert Guide: VMware Certified Advanced Professional 5 – Data Center Administration by Steve Baca and John Davis – when I read it, only some parts of it were available as rough cuts. Publication scheduled for April 2014
