Hi i was wondering if there is it worth going for VMware Certified Associate - Data Center Virtualization (VCA-DCV)? has anyone taken it? has anyone mentioned to you about it if you had it?

Thanks

    I read a few threads on this topic a few days ago, and it sounds like a pretty worthless exam unless you just want some extra acronyms to tack onto your name. This is a pretty good read on it: VMware’s new VCA: fab or flop?

    I think you would be better to go after the VCP or VCP-Cloud certs instead of the VCA exams. I only took them because they were free!! :)

    I would suggest going for the VCP; but given the training requirement/costs involved, it's not always the most available option financially. The VCA would at least show some initiative in that direction to any possible employers.

    I myself have the VCA:DCV, but I had a voucher for the exam. I would not have paid full price for it. I'm hoping to get into Stanley's course for the VCP but the waiting list is lengthy.
