Hello Everybody,
Today I have passed VCA6-DCV Exam with 400 points. I prepare this exam by using VMware fundamental Course, VMware practice test, and a book VCA-DCV Study guide by Robert Schimdt and Dane Charlton.

Thanks!!!

    Congrats!

    Proverbs 6:6-11Go to the ant, you sluggard! Consider her ways and be wise, Which, having no captain, Overseer or ruler, Provides her supplies in the summer, And gathers her food in the harvest. How long will you slumber, O sluggard?
    When will you rise from your sleep? A little sleep, a little slumber, A little folding of the hands to sleep, So shall your poverty come on you like a prowler And your need like an armed man.

    So what are your plans next, taking the other course to complete the vcp?

    Guys, please shed some light into the VCA6-DCV certification. What's the point in this certification if it's not the part of prerequisites for VCP6-DCV?
    Best, sacredboy!

    It's better than having no VMware certification at all, and has the lowest barrier to entry.

    That's about it, in my opinion.

    There is online training available from VMware when you sign up. It's about 3 hours of material I believe.

    Congrats!

    As scott28tt said, VCA is better than no certs. Also I understand some people to go for VCA because VCP-DCV require a mandatory course, and it can get expensive (tuiton, travel, expense..) and not everybody can pursue it for this reason.

    Also if you are working for a VMware Partner, don't forget to use the Partner University. There is a ton of free training and you can get a few certs like VMware Sales Pro (VSP) and VMware Technical Sales Pro (VTSP). OK, the VSP is almost useless for a technical guy, but the VTSP is very interesting.
