Hello guys icon_profileleft.gif

How does the online exam work?
What happens if I my internet get disconnected in the middle of the exam? Does it pause / can I resume it later? Or is it gone forever and I am considered as "failed" ?

    "Internet connection: you will need a sustained, high speed internet connection for the duration of the exam."

    You might be able to continue if you reconnect within the 75 minute test, but I would not expect the test timer to pause, no.

    Like playing online poker. "Game" goes on when disconnected. Either you get back on time or you fail if the current answered questions won't be enough for a pass.

    If worried, maybe take it in a test center instead ?

    Hello jibbajabba and joelsfood,

    Thanks for the replies. I see. My internet connection just got a bit unstable recently that's why I am concerned about this.

    So we can also take this online exam at the VUE testing center? I thought it's only done at our own place and VUE is not responsible to provide the place for this particular exam.

    VCA-DCV is online only, I believe. That being said, most testing centers, at leats around here, offer some kind of PC training, etc so I expect you could work out a deal to use one of their training PCs and their internet connection to take the test, for a minimal charge (not at a testing center like CDW, but one of the ones that's at a technical training school)

    I guess it was you who asked the same question on the VMware community forum...

    Find a location that has a stable internet connection, if yours is not. It could be a friend, work, a library - anywhere...
