I need to renew my VCP5-DCV and i'm thinking to take VCP6-DTM exam so, do you think it worth it ?
and what are study resources to go for it ?

    Do you now or in the future plan on being a VDI admin? If so, then yes I'd say it's worth it. Otherwise, no not really. Most people don't even know what it is.

    I've failed it, so it is my own personal White Whale. I'll pass it no matter what.

    Well, then sounds like you answered your own question if it's worth it or not. icon_wink.gif

    I don't think the certification itself will add value to your CV, but the skills might. There's a lot to deploying a successful VDI environment. The current exam does not seem to cover App Volumes, which is a good addition to Horizon. I suspect it will be covered in the next version of the exam. If you're going to learn VDI, you'll definitely want to play around with App Volumes too.

    My VCP-DCV expires Dec 1. I haven't decided if I'm going to renew it, but the VCP-DTM would be the easiest way for me to renew it.
