VCAP5-DCD Certification

January 19, 2014 – 4:02 pm

I am currently preparing for the VMware design certification for vSphere 5. I thought I would list here the resources I am using and hopefully what will result in a pass 🙂 This is the actual order I have used the materials. My approach to studying any topic is usually the same. Get a good global overview (CBT first usually), then deep dive into the material to get more detailed information. In this case, when I received the OCG, it was so small that I started with that. Took me 3 days to read it… I skipped the exercises for now but will get back to them after the CBT.

  1. VMware VCAP5-DCD Official Study Guide
  2. Pluralsight – Designing Vmware Infrastructure
  3. VMware vSphere 5.1 Clustering Deepdive
  4. Managing and Optimizing VMware vSphere Deployments
  5. VMware vSphere Design 2nd Edition

Still working on this, my exam is booked for the beginning of march 2014. Learning tidbits here and there, which should help me with future designs. Glad I’m doing this!
