As the title states I passed the exam today. Still as hard as I remember when I took it in January. Now to prepare for the VCT exam in a couple of months.

Good luck to all who are going to attempt it before the deadline.
Currently Studying:
VMware Certified Advanced Professional 5 – Data Center Administration (VCAP5-DCA) (Passed)

    Forgot to mention this. I received an email asking me to verify my info a week after passing. The next day after i verified everything I received my workstation v8 code via email. I wonder how long the process is to receive the paper certificate in the mail. Especially with the rush to certify before the end of February. The workstation code is coming in handy with my next goal, rhcsa by July. Taking community college classes right now for the redhat training.

    I passed mine in december and got the paper cert about 5 weeks later, much better than the 6 months I had to wait for my vcp 3 :)

    I'm still waiting on them to even update my transcript and acknowledge my pass. I guess they got a large influx of existing VCP's waiting until the last minute to upgrade like myself. They told me they were seriously backlogged.

    I wonder what process they actually have to go to, surely its all cloudy automated (or aparently not)?

    Just an update. I received the certificate in the mail today. Looks exactly the same as the VCP4. I hope the next round of VCP (VCP6 maybe) certificates look better. Maybe something like ISC2 or SANS. This is something I would like to put on the wall at work and be proud of, it just pales in comparison to my CISSP and my Bachelors degree.

    Yeah it is kind of bland, but it's how it looks on the resume that really matters. ;)
